    National Football League (NFL) owners, executives, players and union leaders announced Tuesday that they’re making plans to “utilize our platform” to effectuate “social change.” The NFL and NFL Players Association released a joint statement after a meeting Monday that discussed, among other things, players’ National Anthem protests at games. The statement declares their joint plans to use the NFL’s platform to change society and “address inequalities in our communities.” […] On Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell used his platform to promote Senate legislation. Goodell and Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin issued a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck...

    From Washington, D.C. to the NFL and Hollywood, America's idols are tumbling down. This is not a bad thing. For too long, we have wasted precious time and money worshipping these so-called “social justice” warrior hypocrites who continue to disappoint. Here’s to hoping all this disappointment will lead us back to what really matters, but don’t count on it. Huge swaths of Americans still bow at the altar of social justice. They believe government-forced “charity” will advance us to an utopian paradise where everyone enjoys the same outcome, despite personal effort, upbringing, unique abilities and education. Truth is, though, social...

    Texas State University has opened two new job openings for math education professors, with the caveat that they have to demonstrate a commitment to social justice. According to a Campus Reform report Tuesday, the university is seeking—for at least one of the two math professorship positions—not only a commitment to social justice, but “evidence of research” on the subject..... “We are especially interested in applicants whose scholarly interests and work include attention to the concerns of race, ethnicity, multilingualism, immigrant, social class, gender, and diversity, broadly defined,” the notice states.

    Whether you like it or not, the Colin Kaepernick kneeling movement isn’t stopping anytime soon. Shonda Rhimes posted a photo of her, Ellen Pompeo, Jesse Williams and other members of the Grey’s Anatomy cast taking a knee while filming their 300th episode. The photo included the caption “…and we took a knee in solidarity of racial justice” to support the long list of NFL teams that have been doing the same over the weekend. The Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, and a long list of other teams have been making headlines for taking a knee, linking arms or doing both prior...

    Townhall ^ | 09/26/2017 | John P. Warren
    There’s a lot of competition for the biggest whopper of all, but to comprehend its magnitude, we have to understand answer one key question: Why do lies work?The answer is simple: Because we want them to. And that’s a trait that cuts across racial and ethnic lines, so all of us have always been equal in natural law. When the Great White Father offered Indian tribes treaties to last as long as the sun rose, they were accepted. When a wandering spouse swears faithfulness to their mate, the listener wants to believe every syllable. When Jews were told they’d be...

    A’s outfielder Mark Canha grew up in San Jose and attended Bellarmine High School and Cal. Saturday night, he put his left hand on the right shoulder of teammate Bruce Maxwell, who was the first big-league baseball player to take a knee during the national anthem. Maxwell, who grew up in a military family, cited his experiences with racism in Huntsville, Ala., where President Trump said this week NFL players should be fired for kneeling during the anthem. The A’s catcher took a knee again before Sunday’s game, again with his hand on his heart, again with Canha at his...

Now the Science Fiction Writers Association is openly penalizing and shaming conservative writers like Jon Del Arroz for pointing out its active discrimination against male writers.

Could you describe for us in general his attitude toward communism? George Neumayr: He tends to speak of communism in benign terms. He told the Italian press that he wasn't "offended"...

    Just when you thought all the possible microaggression scenarios humanly possible had been called out, more pop up. The latest offensives to avoid come courtesy of The New School, a private university in New York City. It has published an extensive list of “microinsults,” “microassaults” and “microinvalidations” to avoid, including ones specific to academia, like this one: “Seats in the classroom / auditorium / office are too small for many people.” Additional “academic setting” micros on The New School’s list include “food sold in the cafeteria does not include options for those with limited food budgets,” “being called ‘overly sensitive’...

    America’s tech industry is undergoing a serious fall from grace. Once celebrated as the heralds of the future, the originators of new, disruptive business models, and the curators of the bleeding edge of free thought, the industry has since relapsed into defending the Obama-era status quo, relying on corporate welfare, and silencing any thought that doesn’t conform to an increasingly stifling and politically correct San Francisco liberalism. All this, while also often showing an appalling disregard for the rule of law, and for the legitimacy of an American election.Now, libertarian or liberal promoters of the industry may argue that part...

    Some Seattle-based social justice warrior named Frances S. Lee woke up over the weekend and realized his political ideology is no different than your basic religious cult, complete with sacred texts, religious dogma, church elders and strictures on speech and behavior that must not be violated. Mr. Lee is asking to be excommunicated from this amazingly destructive, anti-American church. Good for him. The trouble is, for every awakened SJW like Mr. Lee, there are a hundred mind-numbed nitwits waiting to take his place. By the way, as you read Mr. Lee’s piece, try substituting the words “Climate Change” every time...
  • Lawmakers in Oregon Pass Bill Reducing Penalties for Cocaine, Heroin, and Meth Possession

    07/11/2017 5:48:40 AM PDT · by davikkm · 24 replies
    Oregon’s legislature reduced penalties for drug possession in a new bill with the stated goal of hoping to reduce radical profiling by law enforcement agencies. The bill, H. B. 2355, was able to pass the House and Senate and reduces drug possession charges of illegal drugs to misdemeanors, as opposed to felonies so long as the individual in question does not have any prior drug convictions. A press release from Oregon’s AG Ellen Rosenblum states the following regarding the bill: Profiling (HB 2355): Implements 2015 law enforcement anti-profiling laws, and provides new levels of transparency in policing in Oregon by...

    A couple of months ago, Czech President Milos Zeman made an unusual request: He urged citizens to arm themselves against a possible "super-Holocaust" carried out by Muslim terrorists. Never mind that there are fewer than 4,000 Muslims in this country of 10 million people — gun purchases spiked. One shop owner in East Bohemia, a region in the northern center of the Czech Republic, told a local paper that people were scared of a "wave of Islamists." Now the country's interior ministry is pushing a constitutional change that would let citizens use guns against terrorists. Proponents say this could save...

    For many years, Regent Park resident Sam Haque thought the Disney adage: “If you can dream it, you can do it” was advice only for people of privilege. “I thought it was only something rich parents tell their children,” he says. “But I’m proof that everyone can do it. And that’s the message I’m trying to get out there.” Haque, 35, who came to Toronto with his mother from Bangladesh when he was 15, turned his back on an opportunity to go to law school about eight years ago to follow his passion for doodling and design, and created Wise...

    Socialism will never provide social justice - it will only provide the pathway to one-world government where no individual rights or self-determination exist If society understood the reality of collectivism instead of the promise of collectivism then their support for collectivism would vanish. The elite globalist leaders selling collectivism know this to be true and so they have had to rebrand collectivism as Globalism. Songs are written about globalism - John Lennon’s classic song “Imagine” is the globalist anthem. The successful marketing of collectivism requires the names to change from already rejected Communism and faltering Socialism (think Venezuela) to the...
