"Academics and scholars must be mindful about using research done by only straight, white men, according to two scientists who argued that it oppresses diverse voices and bolsters the status of already privileged and established white male scholars.

Geographers Carrie Mott and Daniel Cockayne argued in a recent paper that doing so also perpetuates what they call “white heteromasculinism,” which they defined as a “system of oppression” that benefits only those who are “white, male, able-bodied, economically privileged, heterosexual, and cisgendered.” (Cisgendered describes people whose gender identity matches their birth sex.)"


So, we should ignore the work of the people who have accomplish the most in various fields because they happen to be white man. Sounds very progressive to me.


They're trying to achieve with social engineering what they can't via performance.

You're telling me this is all sexism?



Yes, liberalism is a mental disorder.

Linda Sarsour Says Jake Tapper Is A White Nationalist
dailycaller.com ^ | 07/18/2017
Posted on 7/19/2017, 9:45:33 AM by Helicondelta

Left-wing activist and Woman’s March organizer Linda Sarsour accused CNN anchor Jake Tapper of being a member of the alt-right, a small white nationalist faction on the far-right.

Tapper called out Women’s March and Sarsour after the organization expressed its support for convicted cop-killer and domestic terrorist Assata Shakur. Tapper also referenced “ugly sentiments” from Sarsour and recent anti-Semitic statements made by a Chicago-based LGBT activist group.

Sarsour responded by saying that Tapper has joined “the ranks of the alt-right to target me online.” “Welcome to the party,” she added.

Liberalism in general IS a mental disorder, it has to be. If you look around at what's going on with useless protests, liberal violence, perpetuated lies upon lies based on little to nothing basically their entire thought process leaves them completely void of any rational thought and they believe ANYTHING they're told that is propaganda driven. Lets take Clinton and Obama. There is MORE than enough proof of with both of then, Clinton especially, of literal treasonous actions, criminal wrong doings, collusion and yes, coercion yet they won't believe that but they will believe whatever the political left tells them about Trump.....Alinski tactics.

But I'm not going to really blame the left minions like we see on here, they literally don't know any better and just guilty of being stupid and not being able to think for themselves....they literally can't decipher right from wrong.


The politcal left on the other hand, knows exactly what they're doing, know its not right. I'll finish this later.

Linda Sarsour Ignites Twitter Backlash After Calling CNN’s Jake Tapper ‘Alt-Right’
freebeacon ^ | July 19, 2017 | Alex Griswold
Posted on 7/19/2017, 12:18:28 PM by MarvinStinson

Anti-Israel and anti-Donald Trump activist Linda Sarsour earned the collective scorn of Twitter on Tuesday after she accused CNN host Jake Tapper of being a member of the "alt-right."

It all began when Tapper called on Sarsour and the Women's March to renounce their support of Assata Shakur, a convicted cop murderer on the FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorist" list.

Follow Jake Tapper ✔ @jaketapper Shakur is a cop-killer fugitive in Cuba. This, ugly sentiments from @lsarsour & @dykemarchchi ...Any progressives out there condemning this? https://twitter.com/womensmarch/status/886652647582859264 … 4:09 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Sarsour—who has her own history of defending terrorists—did not take kindly to Tapper's denunciation. In a tweet, she accused Tapper of being a member of the alt-right.

Linda Sarsour ✔ @lsarsour .@jaketapper please share my "ugly" sentiments? Unapologetically Muslim? Unapologetically Palestinian? Pro-immigrant? Pro-justice? Shame. 6:48 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Linda Sarsour ✔ @lsarsour .@jaketapper joins the ranks of the alt-right to target me online. Welcome to the party. 6:34 PM - 18 Jul 2017

There are ample reasons to believe Tapper is not a secret fan of the alt-right. For one, he challenged Trump to denounce David Duke and other white supremacists during the election. For another, Tapper himself is Jewish.

Liberals and conservatives alike mocked Sarsour for the claim.

Kurt Eichenwald ✔ @kurteichenwald I've paid little attention to controversies involving you. But if ur calling @jaketapper alt-right? Not a big credibility boost for u. 8:04 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Camron Jahanshahi @cjahanshahi1 Stop your support for Shakur. Our movement suffers because you are idolozing this person. Apologize and lets move on. 7:16 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Jeffrey Goldberg ✔ @JeffreyGoldberg Yes, @jaketapper is a member of the alt-right. Strong contribution to reasonable, fact-based discourse here: https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 … 9:31 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Yashar Ali ✔ @yashar Very sad for you to put @jaketapper ,who is Jewish, in same tweet as a group of folks who are anti-semitic. Simply because he criticized you https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 … 8:42 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Dana Loesch ✔ @DLoesch . @lsarsour says Tapper is "alt-right" because he called out her shaming of a FGM survivor (here: http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/05/linda-sarsours-little-lie-about-her-vile-attack-on-ayaan-hirsi-ali-is-a-big-deal/ … ). LOL. https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 … 7:42 PM - 18 Jul 2017

Sean Illing ✔ @seanilling An objectively stupid tweet. If Tapper is the "alt-right," the term is meaningless. Serious people on the left can't be this dumb. https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 … 10:25 PM - 18 Jul 2017

(((Yair Rosenberg))) ✔ @Yair_Rosenberg Like I've said before, one does not need to misrepresent Linda Sarsour's words to discredit her disquieting views. She does that herself. https://twitter.com/lsarsour/status/887440456199659520 … 10:23 PM - 18 Jul 2017

‘Dunkirk’ review in USA Today warns ‘no lead actors of color’ in WWII-inspired film
Washington Times ^ | July 19, 2017 | Douglas Ernst
Posted on 7/19/2017, 2:59:40 PM

A USA Today review of “Dunkirk” is under increased scrutiny from industry peers for warning viewers that it lacks women and minorities.

Social media ridicule followed the publishing of writer Brian Truitt’s reaction to director Christopher Nolan’s latest film, a World War II tale about Allied soldiers attempting to survive while pinned down by German adversaries. The columnist gave the film a glowing review while saying its lack of diversity “may rub some the wrong way.”

I actually enjoy that Hollywood is taking political correctness to such an absurd extent. It's already an industry in decline and this will only speed things up.

Bill Nye: Older people need to 'die' out before climate science can advance

Bill Nye: Older people need to 'die' out before climate science can advance

Bill Nye specifically targeted the elderly this week as he spoke out against climate change deniers, saying that climate science will start to advance when old people start to "age out," according to a report.

The "Science Guy" said that generationally, the majority of climate change deniers are older.

"Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It's generational," Nye told the Los Angeles Times. Nye said that he is calling them out with "due respect," acknowledging that he is "now one of them."

"We're just going to have to wait for those people to 'age out,' as they say," Nye went on, adding that "age out" is a euphemism for "die." "But it'll happen, I guarantee you — that'll happen."

ACLU backs down in face of Twitter’s wrath for pic of white baby holding US flag

The ACLU got a big lesson in political correctness after posting a photo of a white baby holding an American flag to its Twitter page — and has backed off after social media trolls accused the free-speech group of promoting Nazis.

“This is the future that ACLU members want,” the ACLU captioned a photo of a blonde baby wearing an ACLU “free speech” onesie and holding a small American flag.

The group followed up with another tweet to clarify what it wants to promote is babies in ACLU onesies.

“PSA: The future we want is babies in ACLU onesies. For more cute ACLU babies, follow us on Instagram!” the tweet said, linking to its official Instagram page.

It did not appear to receive the same criticism as the blonde baby.

The ACLU did not respond to Fox News' request for comment.

The ACLU has taken heat from the left for months, after the civil rights group expressed support for the First Amendment rights of conservative Milo Yiannopoulous and alt-right groups.

The ACLU announced last week that it would no longer defend groups that brought guns to demonstrations.

Actress Branded ‘Inappropriate’ by Liberals for Speaking About Constitution
By Corinne Weaver | September 21, 2017

It’s a sad world we live in where talking about the Constitution is considered inappropriate for children. But for actress Janine Turner (Northern Exposure), these are the accusations she faced from parents of the students she teaches about the Constitution. A former board member, who is a current member of the #Resistance, pushed the school who hosted Turner to apologize for inviting her.

The founder of Constituting America, a nonprofit organization meant to “educate Americans about the Constitution and the rights and liberties it provides and protects,” has given 230 speeches to over 20,000 people about the Constitution. Turner was invited to speak at Eubanks Intermediary School in Texas on September 12. After her presentation to the students, parents and teachers shamed her as presenting “political statements” that were not “appropriate.”

In a statement sent out from Carroll Independent School District (ISD), parents were told that Turner provided students with “materials that included inappropriate topics and content for fifth and sixth graders.” What was deemed inappropriate? In an 11 page research paper presented to the students, according to Turner herself, “the scope of one paragraph and in the confines of highlighting an example of a poor, voluminous and incoherent bill, the words “sexual trafficking” and “abortion.”” 

In a defense penned for Town Hall, Turner wrote that she has presented the same research paper to 230 different audiences with no complaint of it being inappropriate. When approached by the school in question to give a speech in May, Turner forwarded the materials to the teachers and the school superintendents. She pointed out that “At no time did anyone, six months prior in March, four months prior in May, or the day before in September, ask me to remove any of the materials. If they had asked me to do so, I most certainly would have done it.”

She also was not promoting a “hidden agenda;” instead, she stated, “The Truth Act and the corresponding research paper are bi-partisan, never pointing a finger at one party over the other.” But because the words “abortion” and “sexual trafficking” are found in the paper, a former member of the school board went out of his way to target both Turner and her daughter on social media, an action that “horrified” Turner, rightfully so.

The board member, one Buddy Luce, told the Dallas News that he thought the speech was a partisan attempt to bias children. He said,  “How they get their foot in the door is letting a nice, little actress from Texas talking in a school about the Constitution.” Luce’s bio on Twitter includes “#TheResistance #ACAIsHereToStay #Resist #TrumpisRepulsive #Indivisible #TurnTexasBlue Blocked by Trump, Todd, Tapper and Haberman!”

It’s a shame that constitutional law is considered inappropriate.

Professor blames Las Vegas massacre on 'Trumpism,' 'narrative of white victimization'
Caleb Parke By Caleb Parke, Fox News

 Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher tweeted that "white people and men" will go on shooting sprees "when they don't get what they want."
Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher tweeted that "white people and men" will go on shooting sprees "when they don't get what they want."

Extreme "Trumpism" and "white victimization" motivated the Las Vegas shooter who killed 59 and injured at least 515 others, according to a Drexel University professor.

Associate Professor George Ciccariello-Maher tweeted just hours after the massacre “white people and men” will go on shooting sprees “when they don’t get what they want.”

Stephen Paddock used a perch inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to rain down fire on a crowd at a country music concert Sunday night.

Drexel University told Fox News the professor’s tweets don’t represent the university’s views.

“The recent social media comments by George Ciccariello-Maher, associate professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel University, are his own opinion and do not represent the University’s views,” the university said in a statement. “Drexel is deeply saddened by the tragic shooting in Las Vegas. The thoughts and prayers of the Drexel community are with the families of those affected by this senseless act of violence.”

This professor has a history of controversial tweets. In 2016, he tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide.”

Cicariello-Maher began a Twitter thread Monday morning with a three word message: “A White Man.”

Cicariello-Maher continued:

"But liberals will drown out all discourse with a deafening chorus screeching 'gun control.' To believe that someone who would shoot down 50 people wouldn't circumvent any gun law you pass is the height of delusion. But liberal escapism means talking about easy questions and proposing easy non-solutions rather than talking about who kills and why.

"White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything. This is what happens when they don't get what they want. The narrative of white victimization has been gradually built over the past 40 years. It is the spinal column of Trumpism, and most extreme form is the white genocide myth. Yesterday was a morbid symptom of what happens when those who believe they deserve to own the world also think it is being stolen from them."

He ended with this tweet several hours later:

“Here's a wild idea: white supremacy in the U.S. is a bipartisan project, & *both* the gun lobby *and* the anti-gun lobby are racist as f---.”

Holy smokes.  What a screwball. 

'God Bless America' a 'warmongering song,' Ithaca professor says
Caleb Parke By Caleb Parke, Fox News

“God Bless America” is a “warmongering song” that should not be played at sporting events, according to an Ithaca College professor.

“In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, the expressions of hyper-patriotism took hold,” Professor Stephen Mosher wrote in an op-ed for The Ithacan, “Irving Berlin’s warmongering song ‘God Bless America’ became our second, unofficial national anthem at the ballpark.”

That song, “God Bless America,” was sung by concertgoers in Las Vegas on Sunday night, led by country duo Big & Rich, just an hour before a shooter opened fire on them.

Mosher told Fox News viewing the tune as a “warmongering song” depends on “one’s political view.”

“The ‘God Bless America’ sung at the concert in Las Vegas was not the song Irving Berlin wrote (in 1918 for a never produced Broadway show),” Mosher wrote in an email to Fox News. “It was also not the song Kate Smith sang on her radio show that inspired Woody Guthrie (who was often associated with the Communist party) to write ‘This Land is Your Land.’  It wasn't even the ‘God Bless America’ that appeared in American popular culture after September 11, 2001.”

He added: “What was warmongering in 1940 was healing in 2001, and now is so much a part of the cultural landscape, its meaning has been ‘lost.’”

According to the library of Congress, Berlin wrote “God Bless America” as a “peace song” in response to the “fascism and war threaten[ing] Europe” in 1938.

“God Bless America” debuted on Nov. 10, 1938 to commemorate Armistice Day, and the revenues for the song went to the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts of America.

Mosher, a former Boy Scout, as he points out in his op-ed, doesn’t seem to attribute the original meaning of Berlin’s song to its modern-day expression.

“Regardless of Berlin’s intentions, “God Bless America,” was used to motivate the U.S. population to enter WWII,” Mosher said.

In his op-ed, Mosher’s main point is “why do we play the national anthem before sporting events and not most other cultural gatherings?” He criticized President Trump for putting the American flag on MAGA hats, which is “disrespectful” according to the U.S. flag code -- despite the version normally worn by Trump not having a flag on it -- and called NFL owners “oligarchs,” many of whom are Trump contributors who are just protecting their investments by playing the national anthem.

“No one can argue that the national anthem is NOT political, and, if those who criticize athletes kneeling should NOT use sports for political statements, then why have the anthem at all?” Mosher wrote. “The national anthem can also be considered warmongering by some.”

He added: “Maybe ‘America the Beautiful’ would be better (although it has problems for 21st century citizens)."

It is entirely engineered, and began with the Rockefeller public education programs, at least where it pertains to modern degenerate liberalism in the USA.

I voted for Hillary and don't support Pres. Trump.
However, just because I didn't vote for him, doesn't mean he shouldn't be President.

The framers set the bar quite high for impeachment and conviction to remove a President from office.
There has to be proof of serious crimes before congress can vote to remove him.

I don't like Trump's behavior and think he's a buffoon.
BUT, he's my President and was rightly  elected.
BUT, we don't remove elected Presidents based on rude tweets.

Why do you feel the need to repeatedly give your voting resume?  Nobody cares.

Three out of four college-educated Democrats seem to believe that a man can be a woman if he just says so, regardless of his biology, genetics, and genitalia, according to a skewed survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

Craziness.  Bunch of whacked out ideologues.

Border wall contractors face growing boycotts from Dem-led cities
By Barnini Chakraborty   | Fox News

Fox News contributor Steve Cortes on President Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and efforts to reform immigration policy.

As President Trump pushes forward with his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall, companies competing for the chance to work on the multi-billion-dollar project are facing mounting boycotts from local Democratic lawmakers moving to blacklist the border builders.

Coordinated efforts have been launched in California, Arizona, Illinois, New York and Rhode Island that would prohibit cities and towns from doing any official business with the companies as part of a larger resistance strategy to delay construction of the controversial wall.

Most recently, Berkeley’s City Council in California approved an ordinance that would ban it from contracting with companies involved in the construction.

The proposal, drafted by Mayor Jesse Arreguin and Councilmembers Ben Bartless, Sophie Hahn and Cheryl Davila, argues that the wall would harm California’s prosperity.

Arreguin called the border wall a “highly impractical response to America’s broken immigration system, and a symbol of hatred that will only further demonize the people of Mexican and Latin American descent.”

This follows a March measure approved by the council that would vet contracts to avoid business with border wall-affiliated companies. Earlier this month, the council expanded the policy to prohibit investment with companies involved in the “designing, building or financing” of the wall. The latest ordinance formalizes those rules.

'This is the worst kind of populism.'

- Brian Turmail, spokesman for the Associated General Contractors of America
“Our divestment policy is a message that we don’t want to do business with companies that seek to profit off of separating families, degrading the environment and heightening tensions with long-time partners such as Mexico,” Arreguin told Fox News.

Berkeley’s new mandate comes on the heels of a similar economic boycott that passed in Oakland last month.

In that case, the Oakland City Council barred the city from entering into new or amended contracts with companies that work with the federal government to build the border wall.

Construction, engineering, planning and information technology businesses are all subject to the ban. So are subcontractors and financial institutions.

Councilmember Abel Guillen said it is important to put “our dollars where our values are.” 

People pass border wall prototypes as they stand near the border with Tijuana, Mexico, Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, in San Diego. Companies are nearing an Oct. 26 deadline to finish building eight prototypes of President Donald Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico.

A December committee proposal in Los Angeles -- still under consideration -- requires anyone wanting to do business with the city to disclose any bids they have made. However, it does not prohibit the city from entering into contracts with border builders.

It so happens that some of the cities boycotting these contractors have the kind of 'sanctuary' policies that the Trump administration is aggressively fighting.

"It's just amazing to me why any city would not want to rid itself of criminals who are also in the country illegally," Attorney General Jeff Sessions said earlier this month.

The Associated General Contractors of America told Fox News it has gone to the White House and Sessions, asking that they apply pressure and sue states and localities trying to deny contractors work based on their involvement building the border wall.

“This is the worst kind of populism,” Brian Turmail, spokesman for the AGCA, said. “Given the fact that this administration has been aggressively pursuing sanctuary cities, this seems like an easy slam dunk.”

He also accuses ambitious state and local lawmakers of trying to score political points off of contractors and says it sets a dangerous precedent. 

“Today, it’s you don’t like the border wall while tomorrow you could have an anti-war mayor who refuses to work with defense contractors,” Turmail said.

At the center of the sanctuary city debate is California, which has also considered going after border wall companies at the state level.

Earlier this year, three Democratic state senators introduced a bill that would require California’s pension funds to divest from any company involved in building the wall. It would also require the California Public Employee Retirement System and the California State Teachers Retirement System to liquidate any investments in companies that aid in construction.

“This is a wall of shame and we don’t want any part of it,” Assemblyman Phil Ting said in a written statement. “Californians build bridges not walls.”

Nearly 100 of the roughly 600 companies interested in bidding on the border project are based in California.

On the East Coast, Rhode Island state Rep. Aaron Regunberg introduced legislation in May requiring the state divest any funds from companies involved in Trump’s border wall.

“We’re saying he shouldn’t be creating this symbol of xenophobia and hate using Rhode Island state dollars,” Regunberg said.

During a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump said he might soon head to San Diego where six construction companies have built eight border wall prototypes for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“I may be going there very shortly to look at them in their final form,” Trump told members of his Cabinet.

It remains unclear when the wall might actually go up. Trump campaigned on building it and set an ambitious timetable for construction. But aside from potential funding and political complications, there have been court challenges from geologists.

Critics also say the barrier would be ineffective and costly. On the campaign trail, Trump said Mexico would pay for the bill. That’s not happening. He also said the cost to build the wall would be $4 billion. Estimates have ranged wildly, but have since soared as high as $70 billion, though the actual cost is not clear.

Yes. When you're at the point where you're denying statistical rape and violence statistics and pawning people who make arguments objectively off as "racists" you've definitely become mental.

This is a good example. The Hill is touting crime reduction but they’re leaving out the fact that it’s despite the inner cities that Trump was talking about:

Nonfatal shootings inched up 2 percent to about 500

The homicide rate continues to climb, with nearly 260 killings as of Sept. 23, a 13 percent increase over last year.

University liberal arts departments are so far to the left that the people there are just competing with each other to see who can come up with the wackier theory and there’s no one to say, “This is crazy.”
