Radicals Warn Amazon Not to Choose ‘Anti-LGBT’ City for HQ
{Excerpts]

A LGBT activist group is pressuring Amazon in hopes of steering the choice of where the company will build its second headquarters.

The "innovative social impact strategy firm" called Collective Conscience wants the mega-tech company – which will spend billions of dollars to set up another major site for operations and has pitted states against each other in a bidding war – to choose a state that has discrimination protections for LGBT people.

The campaign being waged to sway Amazon is called " No Gay, No Way."

"If you are LGBT and work for Amazon, you shouldn't be asked to move somewhere where you could possibly not lease an apartment and not have full equal rights and civil protections under the law," said Chris Fleming, a spokesman for the "No Gay? No Way" campaign.

he No Gay, No Way website features a map with nine states singled out: Florida, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

"In each of these states, there are no comprehensive legal protections against firing someone, denying them housing, or refusing them service because they are LGBT," the website says.

No supporting evidence of discrimination is provided.

(Robin) Williams’ Suicide Inspired 1,800 Copycats: Study
[Excerpts]

Robin Williams’ suicide in August 2014 broke hearts worldwide.
 
But a new study suggests that the salacious media coverage may have inspired even more tragedy—and deaths— in its wake.

Researchers at Columbia University looked at suicide data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, using it to create a predictive model of how many suicides should have occurred in the US in 2014.

They also looked at the mentions of “suicide” and “Robin Williams” in news reports starting from June 2013 to December 2014.

For the months prior to Williams’ suicide, the model held up. But from August to December 2014, the number of actual suicides was considerably higher, with the largest spikes seen soon after his death.

The researchers found that around 1,800 more people died by suicide in the first four months following William’s death than they forecasted, an overall 10 percent increase.
Grimmer still, there was an over 30 percent increase from expected suicides caused by strangulation—the method that Williams died by— compared to a three percent increase of suicides by other methods.

Yale University teaches students ‘counternarratives around whiteness’
[Excerpts]

ale University is offering a course this semester which aims to help students understand and counteract “whiteness,” exploring such topics as “white imagination,” “white property” and “white speech.”

According to the syllabus for “Constructions of Whiteness” obtained by The College Fix, the English course is an “interdisciplinary approach to examining our understanding of whiteness.”
The class, which is apparently being offered for the first time this semester, discusses “whiteness as a culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity, which touches upon and assigns value to nearly every aspect of American life and culture.”

The goal of the class is to “create a lab for the construction of counternarratives around whiteness in any creative form: play, poem, memoir, etc.,” states the syllabus.
Taught by Professor Claudia Rankine, the class is divided into eight topics: Constructions of Whiteness, White Property, White Masculinity, White Femininity, White Speech, White Prosperity, White Spaces and White Imagination, according to the syllabus.

Students in the course are asked to read books such as Michael Kimmel’s “Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era,” Richard Dyer’s “White: Essays on Race and Culture,” and Richard Delgado’s and Jean Stefanic’s “Critical White Studies: Looking Behind the Mirror.”

Other required readings include Hazel Carby’s “White Woman, Listen!,” Juliana Spahr’s “My White Feminism” and Professor Rankine’s own work, “The White Card.”

Students Criticize New Harvard Prez for Being a White Man
[Excerpts]

arvard University had only just announced its next president before he came under attack — not for anything he did, but for who he is.
That is, in the eyes of his critics, at least, a “white male.”

The New York Times greeted the selection with a news article reporting in its second paragraph that, in selecting Lawrence Bacow earlier this month, the search committee had missed “an opportunity for Harvard to choose a leader who would reflect the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements.”

Harvard’s student newspaper, the Crimson, of which I was president 25 years ago, reported that the announcement, “surprised and disappointed some College students who had hoped a person of color would take the University’s top job.”

The Crimson columnist complained that Mr. Bacow “does not understand, first-hand, what it means to be reduced to your gender or the color of your skin.”

And there, precisely, is encapsulated the irony of the situation. The vanguard of the anti-racism, anti-sexism movement on campus looks at an individual chosen for a job and can’t see past his skin color or his gender. If Mr. Bacow didn’t “understand, first-hand” what it means to be reduced to gender or skin color before he was chosen for this job, he sure does now, because it appears to be the only thing, or the main thing, that his critics can see about him.

‘Racist’ Gorilla Statue Removed From Playground
[Excerpts]

A much-loved gorilla statue that had been removed from a playground in Corsicana, Texas, following complaints it was racist is set to return following outrage and protests from local residents.

The gorilla, nicknamed Dobby, was taken from the Community Park following concerns from some citizens that it was potentially racially insensitive.

The freestanding statue was placed inside a cage at the park over fears it could topple over and hurt children if they climbed on it. However, after Corsicana Mayor Don Denbow received 45 complaints that the gorilla was offensive, the decision was made to remove it entirely.

In a statement, Denbow said: “The City of Corsicana recently made the decision to remove a display in Community Park. The reason for the decision was two-fold: Recognizing that the display was offensive to some of our citizens and a concern regarding the safety of the exhibits.

In a second statement the following day explaining what was offensive about the statue, Denbow explained it was “potentially racially insensitive.”

“This was brought to our attention by a few citizens. The circumstances were evaluated and determined to be valid,” he added.

School Suspends War Veteran Teacher Who Vowed to Protect Students
[Excerpts]

By nearly every account Timothy Locke is one of the most beloved and inspirational teachers in the Cherry Hill, New Jersey school district....Locke is a veteran of the Iraq war and for the past 17 years he’s flavored his classroom lessons at Cherry Hill East High School with real-life experiences.

But on Feb. 22 the veteran school teacher was summoned to the principal’s office where his bag was searched, he was placed on administrative leave and was ordered to undergo a physical and a psychiatric evaluation.

According to parents and students Locke’s only crime was to address his concerns about school safety with youngsters in his Advanced Placement History class.
The teacher feared a similar attack could happen at Cherry Hill East.

“During the course of the conversation he indicated that he would protect his students if something like (Parkland, Florida) happened here,” parent Eric Ascalon told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “He was raising safety concerns about the school with the students. And the intent of his statement (was that) he would protect his students at all costs.”

UCLA: Saying ‘I’m Not Racist’ is Racist
“I’m not racist, I have several black friends” is also listed as an example of “racism”…
[Excerpts]

An official University of California list of racist “microaggressions” asserts that saying “I’m not racist” is racist.

From the official University of California list of racist “microaggressions”:
• "There is only one race, the human race.”
• “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.”
• “America is the land of opportunity.”

The university guide defines microaggressions as, “everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.”

Examples listed on the university’s official website include telling someone, “you speak English very well,” telling an Asian person that they are good at math and insisting that “America is a melting pot”.

Radio host Dennis Prager highlighted some other examples, which include saying, “There is only one race, the human race,” and also remarking, “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” Thinking that, “America is the land of opportunity” is also racist, according to the guide.

A white woman who clutches her purse or bag when approached by a black or Latino person is also committing a racist microaggression, according to the guide. Asking non-white people why they are being quiet or loud is also racist…

University Treats Masculinity as a ‘Mental Health’ Issue
[Excerpts]

Men, the program argues, suffer when they are told to “act like a man”…

The Counseling and Mental Health Center at the University of Texas at Austin recently launched a new program to help male students “take control over their gender identity and develop a healthy sense of masculinity.”

Treating masculinity as if it were a mental health crisis, “MasculinUT” is organized by the school’s counseling staff and most recently organized a poster series encouraging students to develop a “healthy model of masculinity.”

The program is predicated on a critique of so-called “restrictive masculinity.” Men, the program argues, suffer when they are told to “act like a man” or when they are encouraged to fulfill traditional gender roles, such as being “successful” or “the breadwinner.”

Though you might enjoy “taking care of people” or being “active,” MasculinUT warns that many of these attributes are actually dangerous, claiming that “traditional ideas of masculinity place men into rigid (or restrictive) boxes [which]… prevent them from developing their emotional maturity.”

“If you are a male student at UT reading this right now, we hope that learning about this helps you not to feel guilty about having participated in these definitions of masculinity, and instead feel empowered to break the cycle!” the program offers.

The program is currently without leadership, but not for long. The school is in the process of hiring a “healthy masculinities coordinator” to run the program, and a school official tells PJ Media that some hopeful hirees are interviewing for the position later this week…

School board bans fact: 'Biological sex' is no more
[Excerpts]

The board in the Fairfax County, Virginia, school district has decided to ban the fact that there is a “biological sex,” and instead teach all students that sex is a “fluid spectrum.”

The members have voted to adopt the extreme “Family Life Education Program, described by officials at Liberty Counsel as “the most radical sex-ed curriculum in the country.”

WND reported weeks ago when board members were considering the move to teach children that there is no such thing as “biological sex” – and also that “clergy” are not to be trusted if students have questions.

“This disregard for the rights of the parents and for the overwhelming community opposition is absurd. The school board promotes the idea that people are randomly ‘assigned sex at birth,’ when the reality being male or female is hardwired,” he said.

The board members insisted on having what they wanted despite the fact the members got more than 1,300 comments in the days before the vote – 83 percent opposing the change.

“The board also voted to instruct every high school student, without their parents’ permission, about the daily homosexual sex pill PrEP, recommended for the ‘very high risk’ behavior of condom-less sex with multiple partners of unknown HIV status. PrEP has a 10 percent failure rate for preventing HIV infection and even AIDs Health organizations warn against it,” LC reported.

‘Theybies’ – More Parents Keeping their Child’s Gender a ‘Secret’
[Excerpts]

Over 200 parents around the country are raising “theybies” in a “gender-open” style that keeps the sex of their kids a secret — even from the children themselves, NBC News reported.

“A theyby is, I think, different things to different people,” Nate Sharpe, a Cambridge, Massachusetts, father of twins Zyler and Kadyn, told NBC News.

“For us, it means raising our kids with gender-neutral pronouns — so, ‘they,’ ‘them,’ ‘their,’ rather than assigning ‘he,’ ‘she,’ ‘him,’ ‘her’ from birth based on their anatomy.”
The movement is happening mostly in progressive, well-to-do enclaves, NBC News reported. A Facebook community currently claims about 220 members across the U.S.

But what makes the movement stand out — and controversial — is the parents do not reveal the sex of their children to anyone, NBC News reported.

Though the children are aware of their body parts and how they may differ from others, they are not taught to associate those body parts with being a boy or girl. And if no one knows a child’s sex, the theory goes, the child cannot be pigeonholed into gender stereotypes…

Poll: Most Democrats Prefer Socialism to Capitalism
[Excerpts]

According to a poll released by Gallup on Monday, 57 percent of Democrats favor socialism while only 47 percent have a positive outlook on capitalism.

It marks the first time in Gallup’s measurement since 2010 that a clear majority on the left (outside the margin of error) has shown a socialist inclination.

The number of Democrats who view socialism favorably has increased only slightly over the decade.

In 2010, Gallup said, Democrats showed an equal preference for socialism and capitalism, with both at 53 percent.

However, since 2016, the positive view of capitalism has dropped 9 percent among those surveyed.

Socialism was most popular among the 18-29 age group, with 51 percent saying they preferred it, while only 28 percent of the 65-and-up crowd supported socialism.

Republicans still strongly support capitalism, with only 16 percent expressing positive sentiments toward socialism.

The Democratic Party’s progression toward socialism is unsurprising, however.

An earlier poll published by Ballotpedia reported that 48 percent of Democrats now consider themselves far-left liberals, rather than moderates.

Chelsea Clinton Says it Would Be ‘Unchristian’ to Overturn Roe v. Wade
[Excerpts]

Chelsea Clinton said reversing Roe v. Wade and its legalization of abortion would be “unchristian” in an interview Thursday.

Clinton pointed to pre-Roe conditions and how many women who sought abortions, despite its illegality, died.

“When I think about all of the statistics that are painful about what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre-Roe, and how many women died, and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that,” the former first daughter said on SiriusXM radio.

Clinton said that her own Christian convictions made the thought of sending women back to those conditions deplorable to her.

“That’s unconscionable to me, and also, and I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also unchristian to me,” she said.

Georgetown Prof. Says White Republicans ‘Deserve Miserable Deaths’
[Excerpts]

 A Georgetown professor said white Republican senators who support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “deserve miserable deaths.”

“Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” she wrote, according to Fox News. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

Fair described the GOP as a “f—ing death cult” made up of “filthy swine.”

Fair told Fox News her tweets are part of her private speech and said her words were “intended to make you uncomfortable.” Fair runs two blogs, one titled “Tenacious Hellpu–y” and the other, “S—t Men Say.” In a blog post, Fair attacked those criticizing her tweets: “You don’t like my violent words — which in fact are not posing a threat to anyone. I am not calling for violence. I merely speak to what my spirituality says these vile souls deserve.”

Teacher fired for refusing to use trans student's pronouns

WEST POINT, Va. — A Virginia high school teacher who refused to use a transgender student’s new pronouns has been fired.

News outlets report that the West Point School Board voted unanimously Thursday to dismiss Peter Vlaming after a four-hour hearing that drew an overflow crowd. The school system said in a statement that Vlaming was fired for insubordination.

Over the summer, the ninth-grade student’s family informed the school system of the student’s gender transition to male. The student wasn’t involved in Thursday’s hearing.
It’s not suggested that the 47-year-old West Point High School French teacher deliberately referred to the student using female pronouns in the student’s presence, but in conversations with others.

Witnesses described a “slip-up” when the student was about to run into a wall and Vlaming told others to stop “her.” When discussing the incident with administrators, Vlaming made it clear he would not use male pronouns, a stance that led to his suspension referral for disciplinary action.

“I can’t think of a worse way to treat a child than what was happening,” said West Point High Principal Jonathan Hochman, who testified that he told Vlaming to use male pronouns in accordance with the student’s wishes.

Vlaming told superiors that his Christian faith prevented him from using male pronouns for the student. Vlaming said he had the student in class the year before when the student identified as female.

Vlaming’s attorney, Shawn Voyles, says his client offered to use the student’s name and to avoid feminine pronouns, but Voyles says the school was unwilling to accept the compromise.

“That discrimination then leads to creating a hostile learning environment. And the student had expressed that. The parent had expressed that,” said West Point schools Superintendent Laura Abel. “They felt disrespected.”

Nondiscrimination policies were updated a year ago to include protections for gender identity, but didn’t include guidance on gender pronoun use, according to Vlaming’s lawyer, Voyles, who notes Vlaming has constitutional rights.

“One of those rights that is not curtailed is to be free from being compelled to speak something that violates your conscience,” Voyles said.

Vlaming said he loves and respects all his students but when a solution he tried to reach based on “mutual tolerance” was rejected, he was at risk of losing his job for having views held by “most of the world for most of human history.”

“That is not tolerance,” Vlaming said. “That is coercion.”

Vlaming is considering a legal appeal, but said he wants to consult with his attorney before announcing further steps.

“I have to research how we would do that, what that would entail,” Vlaming said. “I do think it’s a serious question of First Amendment rights.”

Equality Virginia, an LGBTQ-rights group, said the situation reveals the need for “statewide guidance” that will protect all students from discrimination at school.

Hunter Dies, Animal Rights Activists Rejoice
[Excerpts]

Dead coyote hunter “got what he deserved,” posted one Facebook user

Just when you think social media can’t get any more damaging, it finds a way to disappoint in ways that I previously thought were unimaginable.
Earlier this month there was a tragic accident outside of Plainville that involved a pair of hunters and an oil derrick.

In this sad event, two men were coyote hunting, one of the hunters got too close to the machinery and a fatal accident occurred.

A life was lost and another suffered a serious injury that afternoon, and now, two families now have to deal with all the aftermath.
Unfortunately, when our story hit social media we saw a backlash that we were never expecting.

There were plenty of condolences, and I even expected to see a small amount of second guessing about the danger of getting too close to these derricks.

However, what I was not expecting was a full blow conflagration with animal rights activists.

Maybe more than a dozen voices attacked Mr. Knepp as a hunter and posted how glad they were about his death.

Father of five young boys, husband, son, friend. They posted “how glad they were about his death” — let that sink in for a bit.

We were alerted by several local people that things were getting out of control in the comment section of a Facebook posting. As far as I could tell none of the people “praising” the accident were local people (although many local people attempted to show compassion and asked them to please delete their posts).

As I deleted many of the posts (along with two other people who were also authorized to do so), it finally became evident that we would either have to block or ban people.
Most were from other parts of the country and some were from other parts of the world, but all seemed to share the thought that animals were more important than people.

That is a tragic story, Cop, and the reaction of activists is both surprising and not, but certainly shocking. My teenage daughter and I were at some antique markets where my daughter bought an 80 year-old European fox stole. She draped it around her neck. Minutes later she was accosted by a woman who went beserk toward my daughter, shouting about animal rights. My daughter said, "Let's be rational for a moment. I didn't hunt the fox. It died 80 years ago." It was very upsetting.

Aussie Hospital Hires Witch Doctors

“Bush medicine” now in use at Australian hospital; should U.S. follow suit?
[Excerpts]

 A public hospital in Adelaide is tapping into 60,000 years of traditional medicine from Aboriginal healers — also known as Ngangkari — to help treat Indigenous patients.

Under the program, the traditional healers will work alongside doctors and nurses to provide what Lyell McEwin Hospital staff have described as a “complementary” treatment to medical care.

“The Aboriginal healing helps you, gives you the strength, to mend you on the inside..."

“If I didn’t have that Ngangkari healing, I wouldn’t be as strong, I wouldn’t have been as balanced, I wouldn’t have been as … resilient.”

Reparations Needed Because Slave Descendants Have Mental Issues
[Excerpts]


Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said the U.S. government must pay African Americans reparations in order to solve a public health crisis that lingers from slavery.

“The term ‘reparations’ means different things to different people,” Harris said according to Newsweek. “We need to study the effects of generations of discrimination and institutional racism and determine what have been … the consequences and what can be done in terms of intervention to correct course.”

Harris herself is not descended from U.S. slaves. Her father is Jamaican and her mother, Indian.

Neither is she a mental-health professional.

Yet, Harris argued, without any evidence, that an entire race has an “undiagnosed and untreated” mental health condition.

“It is centuries of slavery—violence associated with slavery,” Harris said. “There was never any real intervention to break up what had been generations of people experiencing the highest forms of trauma, and trauma undiagnosed and untreated leads to physiological outcomes.”

The cost of reparations would fall on non-African American citizens.

[Ever living person on this Earth has ancestors who were at one time or the other, in bondage, slavery, or was ill treated by others. Who is going to pay everyone their ‘reparations’? Do you have "mental issues" because of the treatment your ancestors received? My ancestors were badly treated by the English, Indians, Mexicans, and Yankees. Who do I sue??]
