A Half Time Void of Social Justice

Well, the Super Bowl has once again, come and gone, and my New England Patriots have won their gazillioninth big game. Tough break to all you haters.

But did anyone give a single thought to Colin Kaepernick or his dopey, take a knee for social justice, during the game?

The overwhelming majority of those who watched would, I’m sure, admit that the thought never entered their minds.

One of those at the party I attended did mention it, but only in passing. When the Pipless Gladys Knight sang the National Anthem, the sideline cameras panned over the players who were all dutifully standing side by side. Many stood with their eyes closed, many with hands over their hearts, and a few singing along, but all stood.

One of my friends simply asked if everyone was standing. We all confirmed that to be the case, and that, as they say, was that. There was no need for further comment or discussion. read more

Podcast – College Professor Suspended for Enforcing Rules

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

This past November, an incident occurred at the University of Texas, San Antonio. A student, Paige Burgess, who just happened to be black, was escorted out a lecture hall by campus police.

She was evidently being disruptive in class and putting her feet up on the chairs in front of her. Her biology professor, Anita Moss, who just happened to be white, had warned her, and the entire class, of such behavior – keep their feet of the chairs, talking to one another during lectures, cell phones, etc., and to “be respectful in class.”

No disciplinary action was taken toward the student, but the professor was suspended … twice for merely attempting to enforce the school’s rules. read more

Transgenderism Intolerant of Feminism

from the American Spectator:

Julia Beck’s voice quavered with emotion and she seemed on the brink of tears as she neared the end of her presentation Monday. “We are losing an entire generation of sisters to this madness,” she said. “That’s why it’s personal. It’s infuriating. It’s devastating. And I have had enough.”

A radical lesbian feminist, Ms. Beck spoke these words at a place she once never imagined she’d be — a seventh-floor auditorium at the conservative Heritage Foundation — as part of a panel discussing “this madness” of transgender ideology.

Jack up the Minimum Wage in NYC

This is the progressive left. Did we ever think they would be satisfied with $15 per hour?

from the American Spectator:

Fifteen-dollar-an-hour minimum wage is so yesterday.

In an op-ed in the New York Times, Ginia Bellafante points to a study showing that a $33-per-hour minimum wage might be needed in New York City, saying that’s the amount necessary — about $69,000 extrapolated out over a year’s income — for a single parent with two school-aged children to live a decent quality of life in the Big Apple.

“In many, many cases, a $15 hourly wage will not bring a family, or even a single person, to an adequate living standard,” she wrote. “That hardly means the fight was worthless; it just means the war is ongoing.” read more

Shocker – Transgenderism is a Hoax

from Red Right Videos:

Trigger Warning: Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist Exposes Fraud of Transgenderism

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. read more

Genderless Hollywood

As if Hollywood isn’t already screwed up enough, now we have this.

from the Daily Wire:

Kate Hudson: I’m Raising My Daughter ‘Genderless’

Last week, actress Kate Hudson revealed that she’s raising her daughter with a “genderless” approach, since she’s unsure what gender she’ll “identify” as in the future.

Asked if raising a baby girl will change her parenting approach from how she’s raising her two boys, Hudson told AOL.com, “It doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless – like a genderless [approach].”

“We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as,” added the “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” star. read more

Don’t Believe the Left Concerning Dr. King’s Stance on Immigration

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday was a day of remembrance for all Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did to advance the cause of racial equality in America.

Unfortunately, over the years his message of unity has been hijacked by the radical left. So much so that a white conservative is no longer even allowed to quote his words verbatim without being pilloried by the media and leftist activists.

Take, for example what Vive President Mike Pence said on MLK day. When speaking of border security, Pence quoted a single line from King. “…now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.” He dovetailed that sentiment into a call to democrats to, “Come to the table in a spirit of good faith. We’ll secure our border, we’ll reopen our government.”

This simple quote sparked a visceral reaction from the left including King’s son, Martin Luther King III. read more

Video Podcast Replay – A Personal Experience of Illegal Immigration

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, there will be no new podcast, Please accept my apologies.

But as the border and illegal immigration is still on everyone’s mind because of the dreaded shutdown, and rather than leave you with nothing, I’m offering up one more popular podcasts I recorded early last year.

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I took a trip recently and experienced something astounding. While driving between two major Northeast cities I was scanning the FM radio dial. I noticed something rather odd.

First that there was literally no country stations within this metro corridor. And second, that it seemed that almost 50% of all the stations played Latin music and Spanish speaking DJ’s.

Then there was the rather lengthy commercial, where the two DJ’s described free legal services for illegal immigrants as well discussing their rights. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

Black Lives Matter Places Bounty on Police Flags

from the Blaze:

Pro-police flag in viral photo of fallen officer called ‘blatantly anti-black’; Black Lives Matter puts ‘bounty’ on flags

Image may contain: 1 person, standing

Having completed her field training just before Christmas, 22-year-old rookie officer Natalie Corona — called a “rising star” for the Davis, California, police force — was gunned down in the line of duty Thursday.

Amid the outpouring of grief, a photo of Corona wearing a blue dress and waving the pro-police “Thin Blue Line” flag — which she posted to her Facebook page in 2016 — went viral.

“I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are currently serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country,” Corona wrote. read more

Starbucks Policy Coming Back to Bite Them

from the American Thinker:

Starbucks learns the price of virtue-signaling, now must install needle disposal boxes in bathrooms ‘open to all’Image result for used needle boxes

The expression “clueless liberal” now has an emblem: the Starbucks logo.  The coffee chain has discovered what anyone who understands human nature could have predicted – as many of us did.  When the chain announced last May that it was opening its bathrooms to non-customers and allowing them to stay in its stores as long as they want without paying for anything, it was utterly predictable that all sorts of troubled people with nowhere else to shoot up, turn tricks, or bathe would start using the restrooms of the virtue-signaling chain. read more
