45% LGBT Americans to vote for Trump – poll

An interesting poll. Pink News reports:

A survey of around 1,200 queer male Americans found that around 45 per cent – around 540 – plan to vote for Trump….Indeed, the LGBT+ voting bloc has long been reliably Democratic. The poll conducted by queer dating app Hornet found that, overall among its users, around 66 per cent prefer Biden while 34 per cent support Trump…But for queer Americans, pollsters said, the statistics were far tighter together.”

Morals or no morals, we are seeing similar trends among other minorities – black and Hispanic.

Minny City councillors spend $63k of taxpayer funds on private security

Minney

Who knew that the 3 biggest proponents of defunding the Minneapolis Police Department – councillors Andrea Jenkins, and Phillipe Cunningham, and Alondra Cano – would be spending $4,500 a day on private security? While we understand that no councillor deserves to receive personal threats to their safety, neither should residents.

Surely they should lead by example and be the first to live by the very system they expect the rest of the city to live by. How strange that these were some of the same people who endorsed an advisory telling residents to obey criminals and hand over their wallets, purses and smartphones while insisting their safety is still paramount.

What could possibly go wrong?

The profiles of the three councillors bear some attention.

Why do they insist on self-promoting their history of activism? Note the detailed descriptions of their identities contained in the personal summaries directly copy & pasted from the Minneapolis Council website. One council member is even proud to list that she has been arrested and handcuffed before. Was this advertised on her campaign posters, flyers and correx boards?

Andrea Jenkins

Andrea Jenkins is a writer, performance artist, poet, and transgender activist. She is the first African American openly trans woman to be elected to office in the United States. Jenkins has experience working in community development in North Minneapolis, and in delivering social services in South Minneapolis.

Jenkins moved to Minnesota to attend the University of Minnesota in 1979 and was hired by the Hennepin County government, where she worked for a decade. Jenkins worked as a staff member on the Minneapolis City Council for 12 years before beginning work as curator of the Transgender Oral History Project at the University of Minnesota’s Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies.

Andrea holds a Masters Degree in Community Development from Southern New Hampshire University, a MFA in Creative Writing from Hamline University and a Bachelors Degrees in Human Services from Metropolitan State University. She is a nationally and internationally recognized writer and artist, a 2011 Bush Fellow to advance the work of transgender inclusion, and the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships.

Phillipe Cunningham

Phillipe M. Cunningham (pronounced fil-LEAP) is the Minneapolis City Council Member representing the 4th Ward in North Minneapolis. He is the first and currently only out trans man of color elected to office in the United States. Prior to being elected and unseating a 50-year family political dynasty in 2017, Council Member Cunningham served former Mayor Betsy Hodges as her Senior Policy Aide for education, racial equity, and LGBTQ+ rights. He also previously worked with youth as a special education teacher and youth worker for over 10 years.

As a policy wonk and fierce community advocate, Council Member Cunningham’s goals are to break intergenerational cycles of poverty and violence and build community wealth with Northsiders already living in the community. His writings have been published in ‘The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys and Millennial Compact with America.’

Pronouns: he/him/his

Alondra Cano

Council Member Cano represents the Ninth Ward. The Ninth Ward is located in the heart of Minneapolis and is the most diverse in the city, encompassing the largest American Indian and Latino populations, a growing East African community, and an active LGBTQIA community.

When elected to her first term in 2013, Alondra said to Minnesota Public Radio: “My entire life I have worked on efforts to make sure the diverse communities of Minneapolis and Minnesota were engaged, empowered, and served by the various institutions that govern us. […] I’m humbled. I’m excited. I’m ready to serve.

Council Member Cano was elected to the 13-member Minneapolis City Council as the first Latino/a to serve in its history. 2013 also saw the first Hmong and Somali Council Members to be elected. Voters returned Alondra to her second term in 2017, also electing at this time the first transgender council members to serve in the council’s history. Undoubtedly, ours is one of the diverse city councils in the country, on which Council Member Cano is proud to be an active member.

Before serving as an elected official, Alondra was a policy aide to then Minneapolis City Council Vice President Robert Lilligren. She was also the manager of the Multilingual Communications Division at the Minneapolis Public Schools. Alondra is a longtime activist and community organizer. As Associate Director of the Minnesota Immigrant Freedom Network, she worked on a wide range of social and racial equity issues facing Latino immigrants and undocumented students. Alondra has long advocated for comprehensive immigration reform, and worked to help pass the Minnesota Dream Act at the Minnesota Legislature. The Minnesota Dream Act gives undocumented Latino students better access to higher education options in the state.

Alondra was born in Litchfield, Minnesota and spent her early years in Chihuahua, Mexico before returning to Minnesota at the age of 10. Alondra attended the University of Minnesota where she became active in student government and political activism. During a sit-in protest to keep the General College open Alondra was arrested and handcuffed along with fellow students.

While congratulations might seem to be in order for the three individuals achieving the status of “first” in history, one imagines that the community is fast waking up to the fact that identity can never compensate for a lack of ability. What irony that the very people who have been fighting for inclusion in all of its forms discriminate against the very people who backed their diversity and elected them to office.

Will these councillors openly take responsibility for instituting obviously disastrous policies when the city depopulates, taxes dry up as crime surges or hide their incompetence behind the necessary evil of progressivism?

No Mayor Lightfoot, your incompetence is the problem, not identity

Despotic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot let rip again at President Trump for his intent to send federal troops by claiming that he was just being mean to Democrat mayors who happened to be female. She cried that Trump “only wants to make us look bad.

No need for him to do that. You’ve done that on your own.

Lightfoot claimed she’s “getting it done” despite a huge spike in gun deaths and shootings. Her incompetence extends to the manner in which she filters out what she doesn’t want to hear as evidenced by her fracas with Alderman Raymond Lopez. She is also focusing on a census campaign during this time of crime.

She mentioned that Trump picked on Seattle Mayor Jenny “summer of love” Durkan who said that CHAZ was just a street fair. Despite the deaths and destruction to the block she only acted when her own $7m mansion was at stake. Could that be a reason Mayor Lightfoot?

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser was also mentioned by Lightfoot as being bullied by the president. Didn’t she see Bowser get her head handed to her on a platter by Black Lives Matter for writing Black Lives Matter on the road outside the White House for “appeasing white liberals“?

Or Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Another target. She acknowledged that police morale is “down ten-fold” due to the limitations placed on them during the riots. Atlanta Police were calling in sick at record numbers. No surprise when the totally corrupt DA was essentially saying the cop who shot Rayshard Brooks should receive the death penalty.

What has gender got to do with it anyway?Portland’s mayor is male. He has federal officers in his city.

So Mayor Lightfoot, you may like to claim to be Chicago’s first black lesbian mayor but something tells us that if you focused on your ability rather than your identity your constituents might be happier. As it stands, identity seems to be all you have and we doubt any Chicagoans care about what goes on behind closed doors. They want an end to the violence.

Trump will make a fool of you. Make no mistake. But know it was a 100% set inflicted wound.

Sydney Trains proves gender discrimination is OK in the public sector

This morning we heard the acting head of Sydney Trains, Suzanna Holden, talk about hiring more women train drivers into the service. The job posting specified “women only.”

After much warranted criticism, the job advert will remove that wording. Let’s make it clear, the intention will remain absolutely unchanged. Male applicants will be discriminated against. Presumably because they aren’t “safety-minded women.

If Holden was true to her Sydney Trains mission statement she would focus on reliability, safety and service over pushing gender politics. Because all passengers truly care about is a reliable and safe service regardless who sits isolated in the train driver seat. What next? Does Sydney Trains require more transgender train driver representation?

If this was the private sector, the company would be fined, excoriated and people forced to resign for such blatant discrimination. It is against the labour laws. Period.

Yet Holden spoke at length about the importance of diversity claiming she was the first female to run the trains in 165 years. Why is that even relevant? Surely her skills should be the only determinant of that position, not her genitalia.

With such discriminatory attitudes she has proven herself already to be totally unfit for the role.

For more government based discrimination, please see our study on the Australian Defence Force. The data shows that trying harder to push women into the forces have had the opposite of intended effect.

As is so often the case with those obsessed with identity politics, their cure to stopping discrimination is to introduce policies that absolutely guarantee it remains. Even worse they can’t see the double standard.

Lightfoot the Lightweight

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is a complete lightweight.

As murders and gun crime soar across the city post George Floyd’s death, Lightfoot is focusing her energies on the ‘Census Cowboy‘ to get Chicagoans to fill in online forms. Could it be that residents are more concerned with stray bullets coming through their windows than indulging a mounted black cowboy carrying a ‘Census 2020‘ flag?

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called Lightfoot “derelict” to which the mayor responded to Trump’s spokeswoman as a “Karen,” a derogatory term to denote a white woman of privilege who has racist tendencies.

Remember when Alderman Raymond Lopez questioned the mayor about what she planned to do to stop businesses being destroyed and quell gang violence? She replied that he was “full of sh*t

Lightfoot is living too much in the limelight of identity politics to deal with the truths in her city. Residents don’t care whether she is a lesbian or black. They want an end to the violence.

Democratic politician pens his own hate crime hoax in Oregon

You have to love it when the very systemic racism we’re told is so rife in America caused a Democratic political candidate, Jonathan Lopez, to pen and post a letter to himself and take his claim of a hate crime to the police because he couldn’t find it in reality.

His letter said,

Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county…we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f–king Mexicans in the area!

Lopez took to social media to peddle his hate hoax by uploading the letter and claiming he “holds no resentment for whomever wrote this…just simply heartbroken for the lack of knowledge, education, and respect missing…I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life.”

Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston expressed his dismay after the conclusion of the investigation with the following comment:

The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today…Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.”

After Lopez admitted his crime he tried to downplay it by saying that things had spiraled out of control. Really? Who knew?

Is this why Democrats want to defund the police so they don’t have the resources to catch out hoaxes?

His case will be forwarded to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office for initiating a false report, a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Welcome to 2020 where the real racists are the very people claiming they’re the victims.

BLM Toronto leader calls white skin “sub-human” and white people “genetic defects”

Good to see the Marxist and racist colours of the Black Lives Matter movement come shining through yet again courtesy of the head of the Toronto chapter, Yusra Khogali. To think of all those who blindly fall into line without questioning its sinister manifesto.

Khogali was proud to post on social media that:

White skin is sub-humxn”

“White ppl are a genetic defect of blackness”

“White ppl are recessive genetic defects. This is factual. “

“White ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves…black people through their superior genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”

We could go on but we hope readers get the point. These are hardly the words of someone who seeks equality, justice and an end to systemic racism.

Can you imagine if a white person said the same things? Those people would be doxxed, fired, cancelled and arrested for hate crimes. What did the city of Toronto do after she wrote this nonsense? Bestowed her with an exemplary leadership award.

So the next time someone sheepishly takes a knee for the Black Lives Matter organization, at least know what the group is about. Police brutality is a front for the real agenda it espouses which is all about dismantling family values and adopting a Marxist mantra. Even worse, kids are already being indoctrinated in high schools in the NY State area.

Tribalism is the only outcome of all this identity politics and will achieve the exact opposite of what so many liberals demand.

Halle Berry apologizes for gender appropriation

Now acting is off limits.

Halle Berry has issued an apology to the cancel culture mob for accepting a role to play a transgender character. She will no longer play the part and will now use her cisgender voice to promote better representation. Cringeworthy.

Aren’t actors/actresses chosen for their ability to act as those they are not? Isn’t the point of picking stars to play roles connected to box office takings?

Should Berry apologize for playing a CIA agent in a James Bond flick? Should CIA agents be able to tell their own story? Where was her voice for such vocational appropriation? What about Catwoman?

Maybe a real psychopathic serial killer should have played Hannibal Lector and not Anthony Hopkins because it might have engaged in homicidal appropriation.

Here’s an idea. Perhaps Hollywood should set up a politburo staffed with radical Marxists who will dictate to producers who they can typecast in roles for their movies. Perhaps stories should also be vetted. Historical movies will erase fact and be rewritten. Truth be told we’re already there.

The movie Dunkirk was criticized for not having enough actors of colour or women in it and First Man deleted the scene of Neil Armstrong planting an American flag on the moon, sort of a significant point in history that celebrated American exceptionalism.

Self loathing is just getting so pathetic and boring.

Would you do this to your employer and expect to remain there?

These messages from black, queer and trans activist Munroe Bergdorf have done the rounds of late. Note L’Oreal has NOT made these comments.

Munroe Bergdorf, who has been a consultant on the UK diversity and inclusion advisory board of L’Oréal Paris since June 2020, wrote these comments back in 2017, when she was signed as a model for the cosmetic giant’s diversity campaign. L’Oreal sacked her for these comments.

Perhaps more surprising after being sacked, Bergdorf exclaimed, “It puzzles me that my views are considered out of touch and extreme…it is horrible and awful to think that people hate me.

One has to question why L’Oreal has chosen to use her services again? After all, on June 1 she said,

You dropped me from a campaign in 2017 and threw me to the wolves for speaking out about racism and white supremacy. With no duty of care, without a second thought…I had to fend for myself being torn apart by the world’s press because YOU didn’t want to talk about racism. You do NOT get to do this. This is NOT okay, not even in the slightest.”

But fear not,

While what happened three years ago was extremely traumatic for me personally and professionally, sitting on a board to provide a voice and a champion for black, trans and queer voices in the beauty industry is important for me…It feels good to finally have closure on this matter and I look forward to new beginnings with the L’Oreal team.

FNF Media wonders what the response would be for any normal employee to sound off at their place of work and not face some sort of sanction? As Thomas Sowell said,

Civil rights used to be about treating everyone the same. But today, some people are so used to special treatment that equal treatment is considered discrimination.

NYC Guide to safe group sex & combatting racism during COVID-19

Let’s be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protesters. Blame racism,” – Mark D Levine, Chairman, NYC Council health committee.

I wholeheartedly support my fellow New Yorkers protesting structural racism & way unearned power gets levied on the backs of Black folks-literally. Proud of @nycHealthy not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. #RacismIsAPublicHealthCrisis – Oxiris Barbot, NYC Health Commissioner.

Taking a leaf out of their books, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has told the COVID19 contact team to refrain from asking whether people attended BLM rallies.

Instead of wondering whether beta testing tens of thousands of people abandoning social distancing and screaming in close quarters might cause the spread of infection, it is better to suppress hard data for the sake of social justice.

Here is betting if a Trump rally was held in that de Blasio, Barbot and Levine would crank up the outrage volume knob to eleven.

Right on cue, Levine twisted that dial by tweeting,

Glaring omission in guidelines CDC released today on the relative risk for public gatherings:…They don’t mention that *indoor* gatherings (like say a campaign rally in a Tulsa arena) are higher risk than *outdoor* gatherings...This flies in the face of accepted science.

Effectively only gatherings of the left are OK.

We remind readers that in February that Barbot and Levine were the same individuals imploring New Yorkers had nothing to worry about with respect to coronavirus because the White House was just spreading misinformation. They openly supported people mingle during #LunarNewYear celebrations to defend against stigma and show outward support for the Chinese community.

Just to give an idea of even more hypocrisy espoused by these NY politicians, Levine wasted no time tweeting:

“21 states which started reopening earlier than NY now have rising cases.

Is NY next? It’s up to us to prevent this. By continuing to obsess about face masks, hand washing, social distancing etc. And by ensuring that contact tracing works here.

Don’t walk away from this fight.

To retweeting days later in celebration that there was

A massive turn out for the Black Trans Lives Matter protest in front of the Brooklyn Museum” (which had nothing to do with George Floyd or police brutality).

BTLM

Who knew COVID-19 has the ability to distinguish between what social justice causes matter when it comes to infecting people?

At least Levine didn’t waste his breath on just supporting woke protests when he broadcast the message on the safest way to have group sex during the crisis.

He tweeted about the muscled, tattooed, leather-favoring NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Deputy Commissioner for Division of Disease Control, Dr. Demetre Daskalakis whose guidance included, “Masturbate together. Use physical distance and face coverings to reduce the risk.” andMake it a little kinky. Be creative with sexual positions and physical barriers, like walls, that allow sexual contact while preventing close face to face contact.”

Just don’t forget to “wash sex toys with soap and warm water.” (p.3) and avoid “rimming” during lockdown where possible (p.2).
