    Shame on Cornel West, his Refuse Fascism fascists, and the academic and liberal elites for failing to preserve and protect freedom of speech on this campus and on most American campuses At Harvard, I had a diverse group of friends and acquaintances. From Ayn Randists, Young Republicans, bleeding heart liberals to radical militant feminists, socialists and further to the left- militant Black Panther- loving Marxists. Cornel was a member of the latter group. After Harvard, Cornel secured a Ph.D from Princeton in Philosophy. He then successfully scored professorships at Harvard, Princeton, Union Theological Seminary and now is returning to be...
  • Meet Donald Zuckerberg – Facebook Founder Builds ‘Oppressive’ Wall Around Hawaii Property

    Just in case you’re still wondering why the world’s so-called “elites” are losing credibility and respect faster than Mario Draghi can say “whatever it takes…” New York Magazine reports: In April, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg told a crowd of developers that he heard “fearful voices calling for building walls.” At the time it was widely assumed he was talking about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. But perhaps he was just hearing the voices echoing across his enormous Hawaiian estate? Back in 2014, the Facebook CEO purchased 700 acres of land on the island of Kauai for a cool $100 million....
  • Lying Press? Germans Lose Faith in the Fourth Estate

    Der Spiegel ^ | February 24, 2016 – 05:44 PM | (Spiegel Staff)
    Germans are losing faith in their media. Nowhere is this more apparent than in mistrust of refugee crisis media coverage. Where did journalists go wrong? And how much of this skepticism reflects a preference for rumors over facts? [...] It is a phenomenon that defies simple description. According to polls, 40 percent of Germans believe the media are not credible. And the loudest of them all, people like Tatjana Festerling, an organizer with the anti-immigrant, Islamophobic PEGIDA movement, have even taken to calling on the public to get out the pitchforks to chase journalists out of newspaper offices. The criticism...

    Conservative pundit Sarah Palin made a cute, sporting little cameo on Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary show this weekend – winking at her own disastrous 2008 vice-presidential run, which was memorably skewered at the time by SNL’s Tina Fey. In the bit on Sunday night, Palin piped up during a Q&A with Jerry Seinfeld to ask, “Just curious, Jerry, how much do you think [SNL producer] Lorne Michaels would pay me if I were to run in 2016 with Donald Trump as my running mate?”
  • Howard Dean: Scott Walker 'Unknowledgeable' Because No College Degree

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    What a snob! On today's Morning Joe, Howard Dean, a product of fancy prep schools and Yale, suggested that Scott Walker was unfit to be president because his lack of a college degree rendered him "unknowledgeable." Dean's disdain for the un-diplomaed came during a discussion of Walker having declined, during his recent trip to the UK, to state whether he believes in evolution. Joe Scarborough was incredulous at Dean's diss, pointing out that people such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg never finished college. To which list could be added super-successful and knowledgeable people from Rush Limbaugh to Steve Jobs,...

    A quarter of Americans surveyed could not correctly answer that the Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, according to a report out Friday from the National Science Foundation. The survey of 2,200 people in the United States was conducted by the NSF in 2012 and released on Friday at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago. To the question "Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth," 26 percent of those surveyed answered incorrectly.

    First Lady Michelle Obama took a jab at rural Americans during a speech she delivered to Democrats at the posh Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, according to a White House transcript of her remarks.Her comments came as she was imploring the high-dollars donors to dig deep and “max out” their checking accounts. “Leave San Francisco,” she told the laughing audience. “Leave this bastion. Go out in the wilderness. And roll up your sleeves because we know that those person-to-person contacts, those calls and doors knocked on, all of that can also mean the difference between victory and defeat.” The wilderness?...
  • 5 Ways Disavowing Masculinity Changed My Life

    Robert Reece has found that ignoring the Man Code has improved his life enormously. Not only does traditional masculinity oppress women but it also severely restricts the agency of men (a topic, I’ve written about in the past in the context of straight man love and hip-hop), often in simple, taken-for-granted ways. Straight men go to extreme lengths to perform masculinity. They avoid a wide variety of activities that they arbitrarily deem feminine or “gay” without analyzing the detrimental effects of this type of gender policing. Often mundane, seemingly inconsequential activities are heavily policed, inhibiting men’s ability to live freely...
  • NYT, NPR: Reports on Knockout Game 'Overblown,' 'No Big Deal'

    11/29/2013 8:33:33 AM PST · by chessplayer · 36 replies
    Writing in Real Clear Politics, Larry Elder says the New York Times (NYT) and National Public Radio (NPR) are ignoring the black-on-white crime taking place in the "Knockout Game"—that the NYT and NPR view reports on the game as "overblown" and "no big deal." The papers claim these attacks "do not represent a trend." According to Elder: "From a distance the media can spot some lone idiot holding up an offensive sign at a tea party rally. But when it comes to black perp/white victim crime, there is a different attitude." He cites a 2006 incident in Long Beach, CA,...

    Politico says White House correspondent Joe Williams is on his way out the door. But the reporter who found himself ousted from his job — after making a penis joke about the Romneys, accusing his own publication of “blatant racism” and saying the Republican nominee for president is much more comfortable around “white folks” — isn’t technically gone yet. In fact, Williams — who pleaded guilty in May to assaulting his ex-wife — is still employed with the company and is still using his company email.

    Jerry Sandusky, the former Assistant Coach for Penn State, was found guilty today of molesting children. The high-profile began last year when almost a dozen people came out, revealing that Sandusky has molested them, which then resulted in the firing of Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky was found guilty of at least some of the almost 50 that were levied against him. The jurors deliberated for two days, starting yesterday. Sandusky leaving court earlier today Sandusky's stepson also stated yesterday that his father had abused him. However, jurors were not aware of this as they were sequestered. Sandusky...

    Washington University in St. Louis is planning a “Student Sexual Responsibility Week” next month. They decided to invite Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol to speak about abstinence at the event. Bristol is the Teen Abstinence Ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation, a group dedicated to preventing teen pregnancy. (snip) Campus leftists immediately tugged on their jackboots and flew into a towering pillar of rage. Today they were able to intimidate the university and Palin into calling off her appearance – the latest evidence that campus liberals could teach Hosni Mubarak a thing or two about suppressing dissent.

    If conservatives rally around the flag in times of crisis, liberals rally around the clique. Their assurance that they are right coming from three little words. “Everybody I Know.” The crazies clinging to their guns and religion might have voted for the Republicans, but everybody I know voted progressive. Some wingnuts might not believe in Global Warming, but everybody I know does. Some greedy people might want tax cuts, but everybody I know thinks taxes are too low.

    As millions of hardworking Americans struggle to make ends meet, Senate staffers will participate next week in a two-day orgy of back massages, organic food tastings and milk mustache photos. It's all part of a health fair for the staffers, who enjoy some of the best health care in the country. Not only will they get health screenings, they'll also find out if their iPods are too loud. Neither the Senate's Education and Training Office nor the Senate sergeant-at-arms, which oversees the office, would say which vendors are providing the services or how much the health fair will cost taxpayers....

    Few are laughing in Australia following Robin Williams' joke that its people are "basically English rednecks". His remarks, made on The Late Show with David Letterman, prompted Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to respond on a Sydney radio show. "I think Robin Williams should go and spend a little time in Alabama before he frames comments about people being particularly redneck," said Mr Rudd.
  • Are Liberals And Atheists Dumb As Bricks?

    03/08/2010 7:40:14 AM PST · by Tribune7 · 71 replies · 209+ views
    An attempt is being made to inculcate into our society the notion -- create a meme if you will -- that liberals and atheists are smarter than conservatives who believe in God. Cited as evidence by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa are conclusions gleaned from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health which began with a survey of high school students in 1994 and part of which included a picture-based vocabulary test used to estimate their IQs. Interviews of participants 14 years later showed higher-IQ scorers to be disproportionately liberals and atheists. There is surprisingly simple test that you can perform...

    Let me share with you an interesting article from The Washington Post about the teacher of an all-black class in a high school in Alexandria, Va., who expressed his frustration at how poorly the students were performing. The class included both native-born African-Americans and kids who had emigrated from Africa. In a moment of exasperation, the teacher blurted out this question to the native-born students: "Why don't you guys study like the kids from Africa?" One of them shot back the answer. The kid replied, "It's because they have fathers who kick their butts and make them study." Another student...

    Dan Calabrese notices a scolding tone coming from the Associated Press in reporting its latest polling. It headlines the report by noting that “a grouchy public [is] sticking with Obama,” having seen a 54% job approval rating in its survey — but some bad numbers on the issues. Does the AP report those falling levels of support as a consequence of Barack Obama doing a poor job? No, as emphases from Dan and myself show: The public grew slightly more dispirited on a range of matters over the past month, including war and the economy, continuing the slippage that has...
