California History Textbooks Celebrate the LGBT Movement

It is being reported that, “the California board of education brought to an end a decades-long campaign to emphasize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender historical figures in state social-studies / history textbooks, approving K-8 volumes that make identity politics of all kinds the core of the subject.”

So grades K-8 will now be learning alternative history, of all the significant achievements of America’s homosexuals and cross-dressers. As a parent, I can think of nothing more enlightening than to teach my five year old that Ralph down the street, who dresses like a woman, is historically significant.

California State Senator Mark Leno, who represents San Francisco (where else) says that, “Most textbooks don’t include any historical information about the LGBT movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history. We are censoring the history lessons,” denying students “the facts of the struggle for equal rights.” Really – name three. And the annual gay-pride parade doesn’t count as being historically significant.

Coincidently, Leno is running for Mayor of San Francisco, but I’m sure this has nothing to do with his most recent push for LGBT significance. And last I checked, everyone in this country already has equal rights. Not special rights – just equal rights. read more

Podcast – The Sugar Tax – A Study of Cartoon Dialect

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The city of Seattle Washington has just instituted a massive tax on sugary beverages that is already hitting consumers hard. The tax is almost doubling the cost of sugary drinks. Consumers and small businesses are upset by it, but matters not to the Nanny State politicians and egg heads who are doing this for our own good.

Two academics have taken it upon themselves to study the dialects of childrens’ cartoon characters, and have found something both startling and apparently disturbing. Virtually all good guys (and girls) portrayed in cartoons have American accents, but villains are predominantly represented with English accents. This, they say, is a problem, because, as we know, Americans, particularly white Americans, are not supposed to be the good guys. read more

Be Prepared to be Peppered with Questions on Your Next Date

On Monday, Jeff Fisher, Jeffy, was filling in for Pat Gray on his Blaze Radio program. He spoke on many topics. One that interested me, because of the absurdity, was an article written by a radical feminist and posted on the website, “Wear Your Voice.”

The article was entitled, “10 THINGS EVERY INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST SHOULD ASK ON A FIRST DATE.”

This person, who describes herself as a, “queer femme of color,” made an actual list of the 10 things everyone, or every radical leftist, should ask of a prospective friend, date or suitor, whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, or any of a dozen or so other classifications.

She says that she keeps, “close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political.”

Well I give her credit for one thing. She, unlike many leftists, at least admits that everything boils down to politics for those on the left. They seem to have nothing else. But what do I know. I’m a heterosexual Christian White guy who’s never been oppressed. Everything I am screams oppressor. read more

British Elite Special Forces to Allow Women

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The British Special Air Service, or SAS, is the effective forerunner for American Special Forces. They rival American operators in skill and toughness.

The elite SAS was founded in 1941, for the North Africa campaign against the Nazis. This was six months prior to the Americans entering the war. Two years later, in 1943, began what we know today as the Navy SEALs. When they began, the SEALs were known as the Naval Combat Demolition Unit, or NCDU, and worked exclusive in the water.

For almost three quarters of a century, the British SAS, SEALs, SWCC, Army Rangers, Delta, Green Berets, Marine Corps Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, and Air Force Special Operations Squadrons, or AFSOC, have been male only.

Then President “Feminizer” Obama was elected and things began to change – for the worse. The era of politically correct military social experimentation was on. And what a perfect group of test subjects – ones who can’t quit or merely walk out. Soldiers, sailors, airman and Marines were trapped and forced to put up with new military P.C. directives. read more

What if someday, I decide I’m sick of the grind. I’m tried of working and earning a living. I just want to be taken care of. Heck, at this point I’m even too lazy to go to the welfare office and fill out all that paperwork in order to collect free stuff. I’m just done with all the responsibility of being a societal human.

May I then self identify as some sort of unique zoo animal? What animal? I don’t know – I’m questioning. But I will get a place to sleep, three squares a day, and my very own habitat to stretch my legs, should I desire. I mean – why the heck not? Of course this sounds completely ridiculous, or it would have maybe a decade or so ago. Now, I’m thinking it doesn’t sound that far-fetched.

After all, we humans are now able to run the gamut of self-identification. It started simply enough. We were male or female. But that was too simplistic. Then we expanded to heterosexual and homosexual. Still not good enough. If you are a homosexual female you’re not just homosexual, but lesbian. And because homosexual developed a negative connotation, it was changed to gay. I guess because homosexual men are also happy people. I don’t know.

Still, this did not define us all, so the acronym LGBT was coined. A person could comfortably identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, some in our society still felt left out – and we sure can’t have that. So the letter scramble continues, giving us the most inclusive acronym to date – LGBTTQQIP2SAA. read more

Ben Carson Needs to Straighten out HUD

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

It appears that the leftist group, ThinkProgress, is not happy with a certain U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia, Richard Leon.

So upset that they posted a lengthy article this past Friday entitled, “This federal judge keeps delaying a case to give Ben Carson time to kill civil rights protections.”

Leftists know that Carson, Trump’s Director of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is no fan of government intervention and overreach, and they are worried that he may scale back the abuses of the previous administration. Naturally they didn’t describe it this way. They, like all leftists, believe government has every right and full authority to tell us how to live our lives.

In the “Implementation of the Fair Housing Act’s Discriminatory Effects Standard; Final Rule” (15 February, 2013), Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended (Fair Housing Act or Act), prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, or financing of dwellings and in other housing-related activities on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.”

Yet, “Even today, many racial minorities and people with disabilities still face discrimination in the housing market, according to the Urban Institute,” writes ThinkProgress. read more

Leftist Latinos Demand End to Free Speech

It’s a fact – possibly provable by science – that what little common sense many high school kids have, rapidly fades away when they go off to college. With any and all parental supervision removed, students believe they have license to be stupid.

Such it was at Cornell University, when a student and member of the Zeta Psi fraternity was heard chanting, “build that wall.”

The chant was heard, “near the Latino Living Center early Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump ordered the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program,” writes the Cornell Daily Sun.

To clarify the above statement, as the Cornell Daily Sun will surely not, President Trump did not “end” the DACA program. He suspended it for six months to allow the correct branch of government, the Legislative, to craft a lawful solution.

They, like all other leftist journals, would prefer their readers to believe racist Trump just ended it. I’m not defending Trump’s decision. As it was an illegal action, I think he should have just ended it and left it at that, but I’m not president. read more

Video Podcast – Leftist Group Halts Conservative Rally

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The Antifa folks are at it again – this time in San Francisco. Via their threats they prevented a rally from taking place. The group Patriot Prayer was to hold a rally Saturday, August 26, 2017, but cancelled it.

And why? Well, there was no explanation given, but it was probably due to threat by leftist wackos, who were planning to riddle the park where the event was to take place, with dog feces.

Yes, the leftists plan was to collect dog poop from a local dog park and deposit it all over the park’s lawn. This they thought would be a fun thing to do, while ruining the right-wing rally. read more

Another “Lee” is Removed

Does the left’s insanity know no end? Answer – no, and here’s more proof. If it weren’t so pitiful and harmful, it would laugh out loud funny. It’s true what Rush Limbaugh has been repeating all these years. The main stream sports media are even more leftist than their political counterparts. And no where is it more evident that at ESPN.

from the Blaze: 

 

We knew ESPN was liberal, but you won’t believe what they’ve done now

ESPN removed an Asian-American broadcaster named Robert Lee from a University of Virginia football game to avoid controversy after the Charlottesville protests over a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

 ESPN has pulled an Asian-American announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. This is not a joke.

You May be a Conservative American if:

You are wealthy, unapologetic and not racked with guilt.

You don’t believe you gained your wealth on the backs of the poor.

You are not wealthy, but want to be and don’t wish to rob or scam anyone to get that way.

You don’t feel guilty about wanting to keep more of what you’ve earned.

You don’t hate or wish to punish the people who have more than you, simply because they have more.

You are not a racist, but the left says you are.

You are not a homophobe, but the left says you are.

You are not a bigot, but the left says you are.

You are not a sexist, but the left says you are.

You are not transphobic, but the left says you are.

You don’t believe that because men should use the men’s room and women should use the lady’s room makes you transphobic. read more
