  • Fareed Zakaria: Trump Is ‘A Class Rebellion Against People Like Us’

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | July 31, 2017 | Conor Beck
    "The election of Donald Trump is really a kind of class rebellion against people like us, educated professionals who live in cities, who have cosmopolitan views about things," Zakaria said. [snip]"He [Trump} knew that the election of a black president had stirred a kind of ugly racial animus. A small subset but he knew how to get them" Zakaria said.
  • In Seattle, is it now taboo to be friends with a Republican?

    Can we just get along? This question is being asked more and more, what with the bitter polarization of the nation. The answer, right now, would appear to be a resounding no. It’s not because we can’t. We don’t want to. I had that thought the other day when I was listening to the Seattle City Council. Many council meetings of late involve left-wingers shouting at other left-wingers for not being left-wing enough. But on this day, a new purity test of left-wingedness was revealed. The council was debating the juvenile-justice issue. Not everyone agrees whether a new jail should...

    Hunter College will offer students an “Abolition of Whiteness” course this fall to discuss how “white supremacy and violence” influence individual identity. The course fulfills one of four graduation requirements in political science, and its instructor has requested that it be added to the list of courses that satisfy a diversity requirement. Hunter College will offer students an “Abolition of Whiteness” course this fall to discuss how “white supremacy and violence” influence individual identity. The course, taught by Women and Gender Studies Professor Jennifer Gaboury, is cross-listed for both her department and the Political Science Department, where it fulfills one...
  • The Southern Poverty Law Center’s Well Paid, Near Lily-White ‘Leadership’

    The beauty of progressive nonprofits is that they can make their so-called objectives as vague and unachievable as possible, because if were to actually achieve their goals, they'd go out of business. We've also found that many of these liberal nonprofits, especially those who seek to redress issues like racism, are mostly led by whites who pay themselves handsomely. For a group that seeks to eradicate "bigotry", the Southern Poverty Law Center leadership itself is very, very white.
  • Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?

    Huffington Post ^ | April 13, 2017 | Shelley Garland
    Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities. If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men...

    .....right-wing militants who, since 2002, have killed more people in the United States than jihadis have. In that time, according to New America, a Washington think tank, Islamists launched nine attacks that murdered 45, while the right-wing extremists struck 18 times, leaving 48 dead. These Americans thrive on hate and conspiracy theories, many fed to them by politicians and commentators who blithely blather about government concentration camps and impending martial law and plans to seize guns and other dystopian gibberish, apparently unaware there are people listening who don’t know it’s all lies. These extremists turn to violence—against minorities, non-Christians, abortion...

    Candidates aspiring to take over as chairman for the Democratic National Committee met Monday night to discuss what went wrong in 2016 and how to get the party back on track. Early into the event the candidates gravitated toward a particular scapegoat for the party’s poor showing in November: Political consultancies owned by white people. “We have to stop, particularly with the consultants,” said the chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, Jaime Harrison. “You cannot come to the DNC and get a contract and the only minority face you have is the person answering the phone.” Minority consultants “need...

    After leading a Women’s March during the Sundance Film Festival, talkshow host Chelsea Handler sat down with Variety‘s Elizabeth Wagmeister for an interview. During the chat, she was asked if she would ever interview Donald Trump. She’s already told other outlets she would never do that, but this time, the follow-up question was whether she’d ever consider Melania Trump.

    The law was passed in 1919 under pressure from the Ku Klux KlanA nun in Nebraska who teaches in a secondary school has been told that she is not allowed to wear her habit in the classroom.  37-year-old, Sister Madeleine Miller, was shocked to learn that, under a little-known law nearly a century old, habits were banned.  The vaguely worded ban prohibits teachers from wearing any sort of religious clothing, from burqas to yarmulkes.  “I could have been arrested, jailed, fined or had my license taken away if I had tried to teach,” Miller said on Tuesday.Now, state lawmakers are...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” attorney and author Alan Dershowitz criticized President Barack Obama for not calling out Black Lives matter and Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) for their bigotry, and “we on the liberal side have to call out the bigotry on the left as strongly as people on the right have to call the bigotry of the far right.” Dershowitz said, “President Obama hasn’t done enough. He hasn’t done enough in calling out Black Lives Matter when they included an argument about genocide, calling Israel a genocidal country. He hasn’t done enough on Keith Ellison, who for years...

    "Asked about the anti-Catholic comments after speaking at The Bishop’s Respect Life Dinner on Monday night for the Diocese of Colorado Springs, Cardinal Dolan suggested that had other faith traditions been the target of the prejudiced remarks, there would have been a swift apology and absolute disavowal of them. But as far as an apology from Clinton for the remarks demeaning Catholics, “Hasn’t happened yet,” Cardinal Dolan said. "

    Jewish World Review ^ | October 16, 2016 | Christine M. Flowers
    My father's mother was a diehard Democrat. If Ted Bundy and Charles Manson were running on a ticket touting women's rights, they'd have her vote as long as they weren't Republicans. Elsie was the kind of partisan who was incapable of seeing beyond the edges of her voter registration card. I'm sure she's still planning to support Hillary Clinton, assuming she can find the polling place nearest to her plot at Holy Cross Cemetery. Elsie was not alone in her unique, single-minded devotion. Many people are incapable of deviating from lifelong loyalties and biases and go to their graves rejecting,...

    Three persons tied to the Clinton campaign—two of them integrally—have been caught making bigoted comments about Catholics and Catholicism. John Podesta is Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, and Jennifer Palmieri is Hillary’s communications director. Their contempt for Catholicism is palpable. Documents have surfaced showing that they ridiculed News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch, and Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson, for raising their children Catholic
  • The GOP’s Jewish Donors Are Abandoning Trump

    In recent years, Republicans have made inroads into the overwhelmingly Democratic constituency of American Jews. But this year, Republican Jews — or Jewish donors to the Republican party, at least — are abandoning their party’s nominee at a stunningly high rate. In 2012, 71 percent of the $160 million that Jewish donors gave to the two major-party nominees went to President Obama’s re-election campaign; 29 percent went to Mitt Romney’s campaign, according to our analysis of campaign contributors, which used a predictive model to estimate which donors are Jewish based on their names and other characteristics. This ratio of support...

    A civil rights group challenged Alabama's practice of electing appellate judges by statewide vote on Wednesday, saying the result is all-white courts in a state where one in four people is African-American. The lawsuit filed on behalf of NAACP's Alabama chapter and four black voters in Montgomery federal court argues that at-large judicial elections in Alabama violate Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by diluting the voting power of African-American citizens. [Snip] "In 2016, Alabama's appellate courts are no more diverse than they were when the Voting Rights Act was signed more than 50 years ago," said Kristen Clarke,...
  • Ten Things To Remember: Anti-Racist Strategies For White Student Radicals

    08/28/2016 8:37:56 PM PDT · by GuavaCheesePuff · 25 replies
    After many years as a white student radical (in high school and then college), I'm reconsidering my experience. I made a lot of mistakes and was blind in many ways, particularly as a white person. What follows are some lessons that I am learning, some strategies for reflecting on, interrogating, and disrupting racism in our lives. 1) Transforming the world means challenging and changing institutions and ourselves. Systems of oppression are ingrained in both and, accordingly, must be confronted in both. More than once an activist of color or an actively anti-racist white person has confronted me: "Why are you...

    What has happened to common sense and the rule of law? It has been ousted as racism, bigotry and white privilege In Milwaukee, Black Lives Matter activists, looters and rioters set out to hunt down and attack any and all white people. Sherelle Smith, sister of Sylville Smith, the criminal shot down in Milwaukee, called for rioters to stop burning down their own neighborhoods and businesses and head out to the suburbs and burn them down. “You’re burning down s**t we need in our community. Take that s**t to the suburbs! Burn that s**t down! We need our s**t, we...

    he leftist progressive media is doing everything it can to reshape the narrative when it comes to Donald Trump. I believe we clearly understand that regardless of what Trump says, the liberal progressive media is going to try and define his words to their advantage. However, the left just stepped into something that needs to be clarified — actually shoved up their “fourth point of contact.” It appears the left is taking umbrage with Trump referring to Hillary Clinton as a “bigot.” “The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community,” Trump declared. “The Democratic Party has taken the...
