    A woman from New Zealand is facing backlash after photos of her chin tattoo began making waves earlier this week. Sally Anderson, a life coach, reportedly got the tattoo as an homage to New Zealand's indigenous Maori culture, but some are saying it's offensive on the grounds of cultural appropriation. The tattoo, known as a "moko kauae," has since sparked a debate across the island nation, the BBC reported. The blonde, blue-eyed white woman is reportedly married to a Maori man who has a full facial tattoo, and she claims her body art symbolizes strength after surviving a gang rape...
  • 'Simpsons' Criticized for Response to Apu Controversy

    Fox's The Simpsons is under fire for the way in which the show responded to controversy around one of its most recognizable and oldest characters, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. The outcry over the stereotypical portrayal of Springfield’s Kwik-E-Mart owner, voiced by Hank Azaria, was addressed Sunday night in the episode “No Good Read Goes Unpunished" when Marge Simpson reads a book to daughter Lisa that has been changed from its original version to something not so controversial. “Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect. What can you do?,” says Lisa. The show then panned to...

    Justice Department Dropping “Redskins” Fight: Trump Administration Putting An End To “PC” America As originally reported by the AP, the Supreme Court’s decision in Matal v. Tam was found in favor of the Asian-American band “the Slants”. The case of Matal v. Tam and the ongoing battle against the “RedSkins” team name were closely tied. The Redskins lawsuit was pending as “the Slants” lawsuit continued; had this case favored in the opposite direction, it would have leveled a major blow to free speech in America. This was never just about the name of a band, or the name of a...
  • The Rise of Political Correctness

    Independent Institute ^ | 28 Nov, 2016 | Angelo M. Codevilla
    “Comrade, your statement is factually incorrect.” “Yes, it is. But it is politically correct.” The notion of political correctness came into use among Communists in the 1930s as a semi-humorous reminder that the Party’s interest is to be treated as a reality that ranks above reality itself. Because all progressives, Communists included, claim to be about creating new human realities, they are perpetually at war against nature’s laws and limits. But since reality does not yield, progressives end up pretending that they themselves embody those new realities. Hence, any progressive movement’s nominal goal eventually ends up being subordinated to the...

    (CNN)An "explosion" in hate crimes since Election Day has prompted the creation of a special police unit to fight the uptick in New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday. The announcement coincided with an address at Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church, where Cuomo called for an end to the divisiveness that has gripped the country. . . . . .Calling this kind of prejudice a "social poison [in] the fabric of our nation," the governor cited a number of recent incidents, including a scourge of swastika graffiti and the case of black freshmen at the University of Pennsylvania being sent pictures...
  • PC Police Offended That American Model Isn't Offended

    Trying not to offend someone these days is really hard apparently. When you do, it’s often those people shouting for peace and calm that like to assault people they disagree with. Probably the most hilarious way of offending someone, however, is when they are offended that you aren’t offended by something! That’s exactly what happened to model Christine Teigen earlier this week. As was also reported by Newsbusters, Teigen ran into some unexpected hot water when she made two seemingly innocent tweets about how she found the word “oriental” to be odd when talking about her salad dressing:

    Do the joyless PC police want to be enemies of science? I suppose the last thing we need is for someone to take laughter and make it all serious, but I want you to know what a lot of serious scholars are starting to recognize: Laughing is good for you. It makes you healthier, more relaxed and less tense. It relieves stress. It even boosts your immune system! So if you’ve ever wondered why that joyless sourpuss you know is sick all the time, here you go.

    After he called Warren “Pocahontas,” a local reporter shouted that she finds that offensive. Trump calls Warren "Pocahontas". Local ND reporter yells "that's very offensive". Trump says "ok". Then calls warren "Pocahontas" again. “She was able to get into various schools,” Trump alleged, saying that was because she applied as Native American. “I think she’s as Native American as I am.”

    The American left created Donald Trump. When I say “the left,” I do not mean the Democratic Party—or, solely the Democratic Party. Rather, the pestilence that is the Trump campaign is the result of a conglomeration of political, academic, media, and cultural elites who for decades have tried to act as the arbiters of acceptable public debate and shut down any political expression from Americans with whom they disagree. They, more than anyone else, created Donald Trump’s candidacy and the increasingly hideous movement he now leads.

    As the Islamic world continues on their modern-day crusade to purge the world of “infidels” by shooting, stabbing, beheading and burning those who oppose the “religion of peace,” the Western world is embroiled in idiocy. The left appears infinitely more concerned with offending the delicate sensibilities of the Muslim world- both the peaceful and the murderous adherents of the religion- than they are with protecting the Western world from Islamic terrorism, a threat which the U.S. president refuses to cite as a danger.

    Simply asking someone “Where are you from?” or calling America "the land of opportunity” is now considered offensive at some colleges and universities, where such “micro-aggressions” are detailed in training programs and seminars for new faculty and staff. Other examples of “offensive” statements include, “I believe the most qualified person should get the job,” “Affirmative action is racist,” Everyone can succeed in this society, if they work hard enough,” When I look at you, I don’t see color,” and “I don’t believe in race.” A full list of these “offensive” statements can be seen here.

    The North Miami Beach Police Department is denying accusations of racial profiling for using mug shots of black men during target practice for their snipers, NBC South Florida reports. "Our policies were not violated," Chief J. Scott Dennis said. "There is no discipline forthcoming from the individuals who were involved with this." When a National Guard unit arrived at a Medley, Florida, shooting range for its annual weapons qualifications training, one of its members was shocked to see that five bullet-riddled mug shots of black men left behind included her brother, from his arrest 15 years earlier in connection to...

    Durham, N.C. — A weekly call to prayer for Muslims will be heard at Duke University starting Friday, school officials said. Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant the call, known as adhan or azan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower each Friday at 1 p.m. The call to prayer will last about three minutes and be “moderately amplified,” officials said in a statement Tuesday. “The adhan is the call to prayer that brings Muslims back to their purpose in life, which is to worship God, and serves as a reminder to serve our brothers and sisters in...

    Do you get it now, France? Do you get it now, Angela Merkel? Do you get it now, President Obama? Do you get it now, America? I would propose that in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo Massacre, that same question should be put to all the leaders of Europe and America who have bent over backwards to make the world safe for Islamic terrorists. But unfortunately the answer would be the same from most of them. Take this stupefying comment from French President Francois Hollande after the two hostage crises ended on Friday: “[W]e must demonstrate our determination to...

    Prosecutors have until Jan. 9 to decide whether to appeal a ruling tossing out the conviction of a black Idaho man because the prosecutor quoted lyrics to the Southern Civil War anthem "Dixie." The man, James D. Kirk, 46, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his 2013 conviction on charges of lewd conduct and sexual battery of a minor child. But in a ruling made public this week, the Idaho Court of Appeals overturned Kirk's conviction, finding that Canyon County Deputy Prosecutor Erica Kallin's recitation of "Dixie" during closing arguments unconstitutionally tainted his trial by "injecting the risk...

One day earlier, the city stood behind the spokesman, Officer Timothy Zoll — claiming he had been misquoted — after an inquiry into the damaged memorial in the middle of Canfield Drive.

    Three McMinnville police officers faced off with Juventino Bermudez-Arenas as he held the large blade he'd just used to kill a 20-year-old Linfield College student. Officers pulled their guns. One, who spoke Spanish, reached for her Taser but dropped it and grabbed her pistol as Bermudez-Arenas lowered his head and his hands and appeared to move forward. Seconds before they fatally shot the 33-year-old Mexican man, police yelled, "Get on the ground," and, "Drop the knife," again and again.
