Have black students demanded this?

A petition started by students at the University of Washington – which demands faculty staff mark black students more leniently – has gathered 26,000 signatures. Worse, the university believes it’s a good idea.

Nicole McNichols, UW Psychology Professor said, “Obviously, I support the petition and absolutely believe the accommodations it requests should be honored by all faculty. Students need all of the support and compassion we can afford to give them right now.”

What about Hispanic students? Don’t other minorities have a claim for leniency too? What about black trans students with disabilities? Should they get more marks?

If the students that signed up to the petition truly want to make it fair, perhaps the white students should agree to be marked down with a white privilege adjustment to atone for the sins of those they aren’t related to who may have committed crimes before they were born.

Ultimately, if these liberally minded students truly wish to stop discrimination, why demand a policy that actively encourages it? If they wish to stop systemic racism how does such segregationist policies help?

In closing, how many black students have demanded this? Were many consulted? We wouldn’t be surprised if many black students get frustrated at the basic tenet that these white liberal kids think without an artificial boost they can’t succeed on their own merits. That is about as condescending as it gets!

This is the perfect argument for why universities should be free. Absolutely no lessons about real life are being taught.

Rant over.

About as mental as white liberals can get

This is about as mental as white liberals can get in the faux outrage stakes.  NYC Ed Councilwoman, Robin Broshi, lost it when a fellow (white) councilman bounced his friend’s (black) nephew on his lap.

She said he should get far more educated on how triggering this might be for minority communities. He pushed back by telling her that his friend would be more than happy to educate her.

When will these totally brainwashed Marxists realize that they are the racists?!? Thank god she blew up before the baby’s gender and religion entered her rant. And this person is an education advocate?

Pre & Post COVID-19 voter registration trends

Democrat-leaning pollsters, TargetSmart, note that there has been a shift in the trend of voters registering for the Democrats & Republicans.

In Maine, 59% of new voters registered as Democrats pre-coronavirus — but only 40% have done so in the months since.

Democratic Party declines were also seen in Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania according to TargetSmart.

Politico reported that in the swing state of Iowa, new voters helped the GOP retake the statewide lead in all voter registrations last month.

We are not talking big numbers to be fair but is this shift indicative of the manner in which the Democrats have conducted their behaviour with respect to lock-downs and lack of proactivity surrounding the George Floyd protests (and riots)?

We will be interested to see how these trends change as we inch closer to the election.

Petition to recall Seattle mayor approved by judge

The Recall Jenny Durkan campaign to remove the Democrat mayor of Seattle is underway after getting a King County Superior Court judge’s approval. Mayor Durkan was the individual who said CHAZ was an acceptable form of protest, even calling it a “summer of love” right up until the mob came to her $7m mansion. Never mind the deaths, the violence, destruction of private property, rapes, forcing whites to pay blacks $10 and demanding a whole host of supplies from the very democracy they wanted to overthrow. Our posts on Durkan can be seen here.

We view this as a good benchmark for anti-Democrat sentiment, especially given that Seattle and Washington are hard core blue states. Hillary Clinton garnered 52.5% of the vote vs Trump’s 36.8% in the 2016 election. Durkan won 56.25% of the 2017 mayoral election.

The Recall Durkan website notes,

Mayor Durkan’s complete negligence in protecting the rights and safety of the people of Seattle has made a clear case that she is no longer fit to govern.

Together, let’s keep making history and #FireTheMayor…

…For our petition to elicit a recall, the petitioners will need 56,202 physical signatures.

Over 36,000 have signed the change.org petition in the two days it has been approved.

Surely there are enough centre-of-the-road Democrats with common sense to join the movement to oust such an out of touch elected official.

Segregated in Seattle

This is truly sick. How much more of this racial segregation malarkey can Americans tolerate? What are we on about?

The City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email last month inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness.

Christopher Rufo wrote an article in the City Journal after he received the training pack under a freedom of information request. His piece can be found here.

Rufo notes, “trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color.

Once the diversity trainers have established this basic conceptual framework, they encourage white employees to “practice self-talk that affirms [their] complicity in racism” and work on “undoing [their] own whiteness.” As part of this process, white employees must abandon their “white normative behavior” and learn to let go of their “comfort,” “physical safety,” “social status,” and “relationships with some other white people.”

This insanity is off the charts. We’re surprised rats in face cages aren’t part of the process.

It isn’t the first time this type of brainwashing has hit Seattle. Starbucks also indulged in this Marxist rubbish two years ago after a store called the police on two non paying customers who refused to leave that just happened to be people of colour.

We wrote,

Starbucks closed 8,000 stores on Tuesday and reached out to activists and bias training experts to put a curriculum together for its 175,000 workers to prevent “unconscious bias

…While training staff is never a bad thing, do the human resources/ PR department at Starbucks honestly think that explicitly educating white people about their racism (if it truly exists on any scale to warrant the conscious bias based indoctrination) will do anything other than alienate more customers? What a smear on the majority of clientele and staff who no doubt exercise decency when transacting their skim milk doubleshot latte.”

These diversity trainers are absolutely the last people qualified to dictate to others about society.

Note Seattle has been Democrat for the last 30 years. Mayor Jenny Durkan was the one who called CHAZ a “summer of loveuntil it threatened her $7m mansion.

Good on Goya CEO for standing up to the cancel culture mob

Goya Foods deserves every success. CEO Bob Unanue praised Trump which caused several unhinged Democrats to openly encourage people to boycott the brand. How easily they forgot when Unanue helped Michelle Obama with her healthy eating initiative in 2012.

Failed Democrat presidential primary candidate Julian Castro wrote on Twitter,

@GoyaFoods has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations. Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products. #Goyaway

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) also joined in. She tweeted,

Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo.

The Democrats are clinically insane. So deeply entrenched is their hatred of Trump that even when an American citizen from a minority background exercises his free speech – which disobeys their doctrine of what he should say – they retaliate like this.

We think Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley sums up the mentality of the Democratic platform when she said,

“We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.

We truly hope Americans rally to the cause and boost Goya’s sales to let other corporations know that having the guts to stand up to the mob actually rewards their bottom line rather than panic that it might be boycotted.

These Democrats have absolutely none of the “right stuff” to run a country.

Warrant served on St Louis couple that defended their home

St Louis law enforcement has served a warrant on the McCloskeys, the couple that defended their home and confiscated the automatic rifle that was used to defend it after 300 protestors trespassed on private property. We wrote about activist DAs here.

How wonderful that the government decided to treat them as the common criminals even though McCloskey had an official permit for the weapon and has no history of committing any felonies.

Presumably the Democratic Mayor and DA can celebrate if the McCloskey family home burns to the ground. They have since had to hire private security.

Talk about government overreach. This is what the Democrats are signaling they want for ordinary, hard working Americans. Shut up and fall into line.

As Mark D Robison once said, “I’m the majority…yet every time something happens we’re the last ones considered and the first ones punished.”

Democrat mayor issues senseless apology

Mayor Paul Bodeur has tweeted out an apology to residents in Melrose, Massachusetts for a police officer who wrote “All Lives Matter” on a traffic sign.

Melrose Police Chief Michael L. Lyle, said he will be investigating the action. His public statement is so pathetic. Do residents want time wasted on rubbish like this? Demanding signs get approved by the boss?

It is amazing that Democrat mayors are actually wasting time over something so trivial and making grandiose apologies to residents who probably didn’t pay it any mind, much less took any offence, while launching needless investigations into hate speech to pillory an officer who only sought “inclusion”. Which begs the question why traffic signs are being used for propaganda instead of road safety?

Welcome to 2020 and the Democratic Party platform – segregation. Good to see it is staying true to its roots that are wedded in identity politics. Perhaps the mayor should suggest the police chief put up “ACAB – All Cops Are Bad” to be in step with the cancel culture and appease the mob to promote progressivism.

It is really getting too stupid. Perhaps the sign should read, “Mayor, drink cement and harden up!” We’re sure Melrose residents would see much more value in that.
