  • Senator Ed Markey Slams Judicial ‘Originalism’ as ‘Racist,’ ‘Sexist,’ and ‘Homophobic’

    Originalism is a mode of legal interpretation by which a judge considers a legal document’s original meaning at the time the document was written. Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, for whom Judge Barrett clerked in the late 1990’s, was considered one of the foremost exponents of this judicial philosophy.

    HONOLULU (AP) — Zan Timtim doesn’t think it’s safe for her eighth-grade daughter to return to school in person during the coronavirus pandemic but also doesn’t want her exposed to a remote learning program that misspelled and mispronounced the name of Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last monarch to rule the Hawaiian Kingdom. Timtim’s daughter is Native Hawaiian and speaks Hawaiian fluently, “so to see that inaccuracy with the Hawaiian history side was really upsetting,” she said. Even before the school year started, Timtim said she heard from other parents about racist, sexist and other concerning content on Acellus, an online program...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Black Republican Mayoral Candidate Interrupted By Racist Attack During Debate

    In cities like Baltimore, MD, it’s not easy for a black Republican to run for office. It may sound like a cliche, but stories like this show that in these cities, the opposition will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo. This reality became even more evident during a Zoom debate between candidates seeking to become the next mayor of the city. Pastor Shannon Wright is a black Republican candidate who is attempting to end the streak of Democratic domination of the office of mayor. But, as a conservative running in a heavily blue city, she has run into...
  • Lincoln Project Tweets That McEnany is the “First Ghoul to Serve as Press Secretary,” Deletes a Minute Later

    On Tuesday night, during a montage of women who have served in both the Trump administration and campaigns, the anti-Trump phony conservative Lincoln Project tweeted that “Kayleigh McEnany is the first ghoul to serve as Press Secretary.” They deleted it only a minute later. This happened just the day after the group deleted another tweet claiming that an RNC audience member yelled “monkey” in reference to former President Barack Obama, which would’ve been an obvious racial slur. Even though the audio clearly said “spygate,” the phony “principled conservatives” still accused President Trump of enjoying the non-existent insult. While claiming to...
  • Leaked Documents Reveal Mandatory Taxpayer-Funded “White Male” Re-Education Seminar for Federal Government’s Premier Nuclear Research Lab

    Christopher F. Rufo released leaked documents detailing a tax-payer funded racially segregated “white privilege” re-education seminar for white male employees of Sandia National Laboratories. The lab which designs America’s nuclear weapons, named the mandatory training: “White Men’s Caucus on Eliminating Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia in Organizations.” Christopher F. Rufo @realchrisrufo Aug 12, 2020 The federal government's premier nuclear research lab hosted a 3-day reeducation camp for "white males," with the goal of exposing their "white privilege" and deconstructing "white male culture." Here are the leaked documents from the race-segregated, taxpayer-funded session. Last year, Sandia National Laboratories—which designs America's nuclear weapons—sent...

    Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan lined up on the Left as usual and made her case for slamming vice-presidential pick critics as sexists and racists in her Tuesday column, "With Biden likely to pick a Black woman as VP, here’s how the media can avoid playing into sexist and racist tropes." It started with feeling Hillary's pain and sets the stage for feeling Kamala's pain in advance:

    The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the...

    Anyone who uses an ordinary deck of playing cards is racist, sexist, and elitist. A deck consists of 52 cards within four groupings called suits. Since a suit is synonymous with men of authority this implies that males control the playful activities surrounding the use of the deck. I propose to change the name to common. Each common then contains 13 cards. One of these is named the ace signifying a superior male while three others bear the images of a jack (prince), queen, and king. This promotes the elitism of the powerful over the peasantry. These cards should have...
  • Sexist! Nicolle Wallace Insults Kayleigh McEnany as Trump's 'Right-Hand Spokesgal'

    On her MSNBC show this afternoon, the sexist Nicolle Wallace slighted Kayleigh McEnany, President Trump's spokesperson, as a "spokesgal."It actually got worse. Wallace noted that Keir Simmons, the NBC reporter with whom she was speaking, had spoken with Vladimir Putin's "right-hand man," and that he sounded similar to President Trump's "right-hand spokesgal." So according to Nicolle Wallace's sexist standards, a senior male aide to Putin is a "man." But a senior female aide is a "gal." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Author Margaret Atwood has claimed that women's rights and the climate crisis are 'very connected'. The Handmaid's Tale writer, 80, from Ottawa, Canada, insisted that action around climate change is 'very important' and credited Greta Thunberg with leading momentum around this subject. [snip] 'That and the rights of women are very connected. So the people who want to suppress women, also want to pretend there is no climate crisis. 'So if you suppress women, you suppress also some very strong voices about the climate crisis.'

    The presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has insisted he is a “champion for women in the workplace”, after the republication of a 30-year-old booklet purporting to contain his “Wit and Wisdom” cast an uncomfortable spotlight on the billionaire former New York mayor. The Washington Post made the 1990 booklet available online as it published an investigation of how Bloomberg has “for years battled women’s allegations of profane, sexist comments”. The booklet was presented as a gift to Bloomberg on his 48th birthday party and contains a catalogue of sexist remarks attributed to the billionaire during his time at the company he...

    This week, a half-dozen "women of color" defected from Sen. Elizabeth Warren's effort to win Democratic presidential delegates in Nevada. Megan Lewis, a field organizer blamed "a toxic culture that marginalized me as a woman of color. None of my suggestions were ever acted upon. I felt I was only on-board to give the appearance that the Candidate cared about my issues or me as a person." In response, Warren cited "America's long history of racism and sexism" for the dust-up. "As a Native American woman, I, too, had to face racism and sexism on my path to eminence at...

    You’ve probably been asked to do a performance review at some point in your career. It was probably anxiety-inducing, and it probably didn’t accomplish much. Worse: it was probably mandatory. Career experts have long advised managers to do away with these kinds of evaluations, backed by heaps of studies deeming the practice outdated, costly, and largely ineffective. Last month, researchers at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania found another reason to give them the boot. Turns out, they’re also sexist.

    One of the several downsides in watching too much football this past weekend was watching too many TV commercials. And although I had grown used to the “stupid white man” trope, now a staple of comic advertising, I was unprepared for AT&T’s impressively racist and sexist “Just OK is not OK” campaign. The larger message of the campaign is that “when it comes to wireless networks, just OK is not OK.” According to some dubious test, AT&T is allegedly “America’s best network.” To launch this concept, AT&T and its marketing geniuses at the Omnicom Group designed a series of scenarios...

    While every single 2020 Democratic presidential candidate avidly supports a woman’s “right” to abortion, it seems some are considerably more comfortable with calling the procedure what it is: killing a child. Old sins cast especially long shadows when you run for president, as former New York Mayor and latecomer to the 2020 Democratic primary race, Michael Bloomberg has discovered, and an incident in the 90’s in which he rather crassly referred to abortion is making headlines once more. According to The New York Times, the former New York City Mayor was recently forced to address the heartless, decades-old statements made...

    Mike Bloomberg has on repeated occasions faced and fought allegations that he directed crude and sexist comments to women in his office, including a claim in the 1990s that he told an employee who had just announced she was pregnant to "kill it." "He told me to 'kill it' in a serious monotone voice," the woman alleged in a lawsuit. "I asked 'What? What did you just say?' He looked at me and repeated in a deliberate manner 'kill it.'"

    Sixteen-year-old Sadie Earegood has turned to local police with the claim that her teacher recently ripped a “Women for Trump” pin off her chest. The high school junior told a local NBC affiliate in Mason, Michigan, that teacher Paul Kato couldn’t agree to disagree upon seeing her political pin on Dec. 5. “I was just really shocked that a teacher would especially do that,” she told the station on Monday. “He’s talking about the ‘Women for Trump’ pin and I said, ‘That’s fine you don’t have to like it, we can have our opinions.’ “ Sadie said it wasn’t...

    In a finding sure to inflame the gender wars, research funded by the U.K. government suggests women around the world, and especially in Canada, are significantly more ignorant of current affairs and politics than men. This gender gap is constant across countries as diverse as the U.S., Greece, Japan and Australia. It is as clear in Colombia, where most people scored very low on tests about current news events, as it is in Norway, where knowledge is generally high. It is as evident in the U.K. and U.S., where gender equality is well established in the culture, as it is...

    A professor at Indiana University who defended "racist, sexist, and homophobic" comments that he posted on his social media accounts will keep his job because his views are protected under the Constitution, university officials announced after they were bombarded with demands to fire him. Eric Rasmusen, a professor of business economics and public policy at the university, tweeted this month a quote from an article that said, "geniuses are overwhelmingly male because they combine outlier IQ with moderately low Agreeableness and Moderately low Conscientiousness." The article, titled, "Are Women Destroying Academia? Probably" was published by The Unz Review, which describes...
