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.

When NYC residents took the law into their own hands in 1979

We’ve written quite a bit lately on the utterly hopeless NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and his weakness in tackling crime.

We’ve written in the past about vigilantism in NYC several years ago and we see that inevitably, NY citizens will start to take the law into their own hands. They will have little choice.

The truth is the Guardian Angels have already returned, since deBlasio took office in 2014.

If we go back to the 1970s, when crime was surging, NYC’s population fell from 7,894,862 to 7,071,639 over the next decade.

What caused this? In the 1970s, NYC faced problems with the budget and by 1975 was teetering on bankruptcy. This led to shedding of public service jobs including the fire department and the NYPD. The fall in foot patrols in NYC saw crime soar. Homicide rates climbed as follows:

1960: 6.19 per 100,000 residents

1970: 14.14

1980: 25.60

1990: 30.66

2000: 8.44

2010: 6.53

2019: 3.75

2020: 4.26 (6 month run rate)

At this stage homicide in NYC is well off long term rates despite the sharp % increases seen since the death of George Floyd). One wonders whether the history of the 1980s will return as de Blasio cuts funding to the NYPD when the number of cops on the beat fell substantially. Will residents start moving to other parts of the country and hollow out the tax base?

We found this document interesting, especially the following statement:

While the NYPD has made approximately 40,000 fewer overall arrests so far this year compared with last year, gun arrests year-to-date as of July 5 are 1,679 vs. 1,683. We have also seen the impacts of legislative mandates sending offenders no longer eligible for bail back to the streets where they are being regularly rearrested and contributing to overall crime in the city.

Who knew? Now that NYPD cops are quitting in record numbers and new recruits aren’t being hired to replace them, what could possibly go wrong?

Expect to see more stories about the Guardian Angels in NYC as residents fill the hole that the virtue signaling segregationist mayor has opened.

To think how the mayor was so willing to use the NYPD as a Gestapo to fine residents for disobeying stay-at-home orders. Recall deBlasio even encouraged NYers to dob in their neighbors.

#WalkAway video highlights exodus from Democratic Party

Another powerful unsolicited video from Josephine Valdez documenting the growing revolt against the Democrats as documented by the #WalkAway campaign.

She wrote,

This is why I continue to #walkaway from the Democratic party. Let me clear something up about Goya boycott, all whites are racists, republicans vs democrats and communism! Everyday, I see more things taking place which makes me not even walk but run!

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.

NYC mayor helps paint BLM outside Trump Tower while gun crime soars

As shootings in NYC skyrocket triple digit percentages and NYPD officers quit at records levels, hard-left Democrat NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio decided to join in the divisive fun of painting “Black Lives Matter” outside Trump Tower with Rev Al Sharpton.

Did the mayor forget the BLM chants of “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon” or “What do we want? Dead cops!! When do we want them? Now!” when their supporters referred to the NYPD?

Apart from lacking originality, perhaps the mayor might have considered calling DC Mayor Muriel Bowser who would have told him she was heavily criticized by BLM leaders for “appeasing white liberals” with her virtue signaling mural outside the White House.

We remind readers of the Marxist roots of the Black Lives Matter organization which has outsourced its donation administration to a group which has a convicted terrorist as a board member.

DeBlasio is no stranger to sick stunts. Early last year he bathed skyscrapers in pink lights to celebrate late term abortion legislation. According to a NYC Health Department report released in May 2018, between 2012 and 2016 black mothers terminated 136,426 pregnancies and gave birth to 118,127 babies. Shouldn’t all black lives matter? Compare that to the 11 blacks shot and killed by the NYPD in 2019, all of them in possession of a deadly weapon.

We wonder if DeBlasio would like to explain how he thinks he will advance the fortunes of the black community by stunts that alienate other groups and policies that all but guarantee to make them less safe.

As we keep saying, the more that liberals allow their derangement to be exposed to sunlight, the more the ranks of the silent majority will swell to reject the antisocial behavior the left champions in November. Keep up the good work.

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.

In California opposing a Marxist group is now a hate crime

California, true to form, showed its totalitarian roots.

A couple that painted over a Black Lives Matter mural that was approved by the city of Martinez have been charged with a hate crime. The release notes “defacing” with “black paint” which somehow relates to “systemic racism.” We imagine that given bitumen is black, that colour paint was the best hue to mask the mural.

Who knew that opposing a Marxist group is now a federal offense in California?

Unfortunately we had another woke District Attorney Diana Becton flex her political beliefs in the statement rather than apply the law objectively. Where have we seen this before? Three examples spring to mind.

1) Fulton County DA Paul Howard is pushing the death penalty for former Atlanta Police officer Garrett Rolfe in the death of Rayshard Brooks despite the evidence. How convenient that he is up for re-election and fighting allegations of sexual harassment and a toxic work environment. Also note that The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) has opened an investigation of Howard and his use of a nonprofit to funnel at least $140,000 in city of Atlanta funds to supplement his salary.

2) Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx ruled emphatically that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was guilty beyond doubt but dropped all 16 charges related to his hate crime hoax despite the unnecessary $100,000 cost to the Chicago Police. How ironic that Michelle Obama’s former chief-of-staff called Foxx to discuss the concern of the Smollett family. Foxx never recused herself on conflict of interest grounds, however the end result certainly gives rise to suspicions favours were called in.

3) St Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said she would find a way to charge the McCloskeys for defending their home with automatic weapons when 500 BLM protestors trespassed on their gated private property. Gardner said, “Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights, and will use the full power of Missouri law to hold [the McCloskeys] accountable.”

Forget objective judiciary’s when DAs are unabashed activists.

As an aside, all four attorneys listed above are Democrats that happen to be black. This is an observation based on fact.

We are confident that there have been activist attorneys of other party affiliations and races over the years. So much for independence and fair trials when DAs push for an outcome without the presumption of innocence. A sad indictment indeed.

Surely to end systemic racism, applying laws based on identity won’t be the answer.

Trump flips the bird at the self-loathing left

Just brilliant. Instead of cowering to the mob with political correctness, Trump announces he is building a national garden full of statues celebrating American heroes. Love really will “Trump” hate.

Liberal heads must be exploding. Basically the message to these self-loathing lefties pulling down monuments – I’m going to build a bigger memorial which unites America by displaying the country’s exceptionalism.

The softest part of any true patriotic American is a pride in its achievements, devotion to country and flag.

No doubt the left will criticize the people chosen to be erected on the basis of identity politics which in a sense shows that they really do like monuments after all.

Trump – master of the troll.

Another WaPo fact check blows up in its face

Image

You have to hand it to the left. The Washington Post decided to challenge the claim made by President Trump that the cities where all of the violent crime was happening were Democrat-controlled.

True to form the left-leaning newspaper wrote, “It’s not clear how Trump is defining “most dangerous” in this context. So let’s look at two related sets of data compiled by the FBI: most violent crime and most violent crime per capita…The most recent data to that effect is from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report covering the first half of 2019. The cities with the most violent crimes are many of the most populous cities in the country, as you might expect. Those with the highest rates of violent crime are from a range of different states.”

The stats came out as in the chart. In overall terms, 17 of the top 20 cities with violent crime were Democrat-controlled, 2 were independent and 1 Republican.

In terms of per 10,000 inhabitants, 19 out of 20 were Democrat-controlled with one independent run.

Technically a lie, but the correlation is striking.

Crazy more contagious than coronavirus

Brittany M Hughes points to the latest round of lefty lunacy. Man fired for cracking his knuckles and child playground equipment that uses rope is now racist.

Crazy is more contagious than coronavirus.
