“This place feels like a safe-zone where women can just get together and have fun and celebrate … especially in light of the assaults that have happened at other festivals,” said Julia Skonneby, a 34-year-old performer.
“It feels like a certain tension is gone… we’re here to make a statement together,” Hanna Gustavsson, a 31-year-old designer, chimed in.
You idiots whined because traditional society had sex-separated spaces and roles. Those were not arbitrary; they were designed that way for a reason. That offended your pretense of equality, so you did away with them, and then were surprised when the wolves emerged within the sheep pack to assault people and steal (which happens quite a bit at these festivals). Now, you have rediscovered the separation of the sexes, and maybe soon you will come to appreciate other elements of traditional society.
‘No American should be denied admission to school” because of race, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said while filing a Justice Department statement of interest in the landmark discrimination lawsuit against Harvard College.
…DOJ also cites “substantial evidence” that school officials “monitor and manipulate the racial makeup of incoming classes,” with Asians accounting for about 20 percent of freshmen, year after year. That, it says, amounts to a “patently unconstitutional” attempt to “racially balance” the student body.
No one wants too many Asians after what happened to the University of California in the 1970s. Asians worked hard, very hard. They dominated test scores. They all went to college. Then, results in the real world were less than expected, and college administrators noted that their campuses had become boring and dominated by a “is this on the final?” mentality. It gutted the spirit of the American college experience. That meant that all the promising students went elsewhere. What we are seeing at Harvard is the death of affirmative action. It has essentially been used as a subsidy for lower-IQ ethnic groups by lowering the entrance requirements for members of those groups. This has penalized whites and Asians but not Jews, who still count as a quasi-minority. It has dumbed down college degrees and made them worthless for the purpose industry used them for, which was to winnow out the self-starters. If we keep affirmative action intact, as Sessions wants us to do, the Asians will roll over the impoverished and disadvantaged groups; if we abolish it, schools will go back to hunting down Western European, upper half of middle class, high IQ students. In this its paradox is revealed, and the chronic instability of this delusional policy finally comes to light.
Sabo’s latest installation: Nazi-style Democratic Party posters declaring in German and English that “Republicans are forbidden” and urging fellow Democrats to “Resist yourself! Do not buy Republican!”
It is hard not to enjoy the art of Sabo and his team, but he is off-base here: by calling the opposition Nazis, we only strengthen the dichotomy they impose on everything of Nazi/anti-Nazi. Once they define themselves as anti-Nazis, then by the converse principle, everything else is Nazi. This enables the Left. Calling them Nazis, racists, bigots, etc. is self-defeating for this reason; instead, call them what they are: Communists or Communist lite (neo-Communist) parasites.
Last year, the industry generated an estimated $1.6 billion in revenue, according to the market research firm IBISWorld.
And—sorry, parents—there’s no sign of it letting up.
Over the next decade, the industry is expected to continue to grow at an annualized rate of 7.7%.
Having run out of other places to vandalize, the alienated and directionless citizens of late democracy began to graffiti themselves.
California has emerged as the center of the Democratic resistance since President Donald Trump took office. But this activism might have met its match when it comes to In-N-Out, a California institution that some hold with the same level of esteem as the Golden Gate Bridge and Joshua Tree.
By the end of the day, Democrats were distancing themselves from the idea and Republicans were enjoying a political feast, with some making big lunch orders to show their support for the chain and posting photos on social media.
Leftists will boycott things that they do not use or for which they have alternatives. Conservatives can rule this nation by business alone, if they produce popular and indispensable businesses.
The U.S. Attorney General’s Office “has approved the filing of a lawsuit against the city under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act,” according to a city statement.
The Farmersville City Council unanimously voted this week to enter negotiations to reach a potential settlement that would allow the cemetery to proceed and avoid a lawsuit. The city, about 45 miles north of Dallas, has roughly 3,300 residents, 75 percent of whom are white.
Federal Civil Rights law, beginning in 1870, is the enemy. It prevents you from stopping blight from spreading to your community. Blight always seeks to spread itself, because misery loves company, and other ethnic groups will invade if they can so they can destroy you, which means that you will no longer be a threat to them.
The study, written by Columbia University PhD candidate Efrat Nechushtai and University of Oregon Shirley Papé Chair in Emerging Media chair Seth Lewis, set to be published in the journal “Computers in Human Behavior,” stated only 14 news organizations “made up 79% of the total number of news recommendations suggested to searchers.”
Algorithms can work like political correctness. You define certain terms as “correct” and award them more points. Then, not surprisingly, Leftist sources show up wherever your algorithm is active.
While global economic growth remains strong, Azevedo said, protectionism continues to cause turbulence, threatening to rise across the world, with Trump tariffs producing a domino effect of sorts, effectively forcing other countries to respond with retaliatory measures. Recent tit-for-tat tariffs between China and the U.S. are, according to WTO head, sounding “a number of alarms,” since protectionist measures continue to spread rapidly.
Globalism is a Leftist project designed to link the first world with the third. No one needs it or wants it, now that we have seen that it means our economies are simply more fragile and our nations are being overruled by the needs of world markets. The WTO effectively admitted that it is obsolete with its statements, and forgets that the US economy can take a few hits and keep going, and will massively benefit if the world economy descends into chaos and the US emerges self-reliant.
A Saudi official has hinted the kingdom was moving forward with a plan to dig a canal that would turn the neighbouring Qatari peninsula into an island, amid a diplomatic feud between the Gulf nations.
This is the zeitgeist of our time: each group going its own way instead of following the herd into oblivion by adopting the same insane policies that the rest of humanity uses to keep itself mediocre. Qatar is a small peninsula off of Saudi Arabia, and the two states have experienced friction for some time, so the Saudi solution is to make Qatar responsible for itself and to eliminate any Saudi obligations to maintain a border, roads, or contact with its troublesome neighbor. Europe should do the same for its borders with Turkey and Russia, and America could make its border with Mexico a permanent shark-filled canal.
The previously unreported details of the July 30, 2016, breakfast with Christopher Steele, which Ohr described to lawmakers this week in a private interview, reveal an exchange of potentially explosive information about Trump between two men the president has relentlessly sought to discredit.
No one believes any of this drivel anymore except career Leftists, who depend on it for their sense of well-being. The election of Trump, like Brexit, was a sign that history has rejected the grand Leftism plan to make us all equal and all one. This means their beliefs, which they use as proof of the goodness of their own lives, are detritus and so are they. Naturally, panic has resulted, because the human herd animal prefers to try to control reality than adapt to it.
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has kicked off a new initiative geared at adding solar to multifamily housing. The Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing (SOMAH) Program will be administered by a coalition of established clean energy and affordable housing organizations in the state with $100 million annually for the first 10 years, provided by CPUC.
All of our forms of energy except nuclear come indirectly from a solar source. Our solar panels have improved massively since Leftists fawned all over them back in the 1970s, so there is no reason not to have them on every roof.
One reason the Obama rules were so lopsided is that they were crafted in an atmosphere of moral panic. It was assumed that there was a spiraling epidemic of sexual assault on campus. Taylor and Johnson note, to the contrary, that sexual assaults of female college students dropped by more than half between 1997 and 2013, and that young women in college are less likely to be assaulted than those who are not in college.
Moral panic is the bread and butter of the Left. People by nature assume that equality is good because it eliminates conflict, when in reality we need competition so that the best rise over the incompetents. Thus consigned to airy morality, egalitarianism becomes offended whenever someone is failing in the presence of someone else who is rising, and a moral panic results which produces more rules designed to punish the powerful so that the incompetent can feel safe and keep attending jobs, consuming, and paying taxes in the glorified shopping mall that is the modern nation.
It’s the insurgent force in 2018. They’ve helped to make the demographic profile of the Democratic field more racially diverse and younger than before. There are more L.G.B.T. candidates. There are many, many more women.
Demographic replacement starts with the Democrats. All the special interest groups that they empowered are now taking over the party, making clear that its endgame is the elimination of not just heritage Americans but any power structure other than third world style kleptocratic matriarchy.
In a September 1997 joint op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Kristol and Brooks diagnosed the malady: ‘What is missing from today’s conservatism,’ they lamented, ‘is the appeal to American greatness.’ Aside from the need for ‘moral assertiveness abroad,’ the rest of the tenets of their prescribed remedy were left purposely vague.
The problem here is that no one knew what “greatness” meant. In WW2, it meant defeating the Nazis… only to find out that we fought the wrong enemy and to then spend the next forty years in a cold war against the Communists. During the Cold War, it meant fighting Communism. But with all enemies vanquished, what did it mean? Into this void rushed the Left, and they took over for the next twenty-five years. In reality, the only “greatness” we can achieve is to have a superior civilization, and that conflicts with egalitarianism, which is why post-Buckley conservatives could not see it.
But at this one, as speakers castigated what they viewed as coastal elites and a leftist media and legal establishment and argued for a more “originalist” reading of the Constitution, people present felt a new sort of buzz.
…Here, in fact, is what happened: the birth of the Federalist Society. In the 36 years since, it has become one of the most influential legal organizations in history—not only shaping law students’ thinking but changing American society itself by deliberately, diligently shifting the country’s judiciary to the right.
Responding, no doubt, to the shift Leftward in the courts from the 1940s-1970s that proved the root of so many devastatingly insane Leftist programs like Civil Rights, affirmative action, nationwide legalized abortion, and the like. The Federalists wanted to go back to originalism, or the idea of strong states and a very limited, non-ideological Federal government. Unfortunately, this is not enough to save them from the ravages of democracy, which has infiltrated past the “checks and balances” through autonomous agents advancing ideology separately in their many roles, a phenomenon which Trump calls the “deep State.”
