Columbus Wasn’t Indigenous – Neither Were American Indians

by: the Common Constitutionalist

As Columbus Day fast approaches we are reminded again why the loony left is so aptly named and why we describe them as “low information.”

We all know Columbus didn’t just innocently “sail the ocean blue in 1492.” We all know it should be: “Columbus came in with the tide, for the sole purpose of Genocide.”

We know Ferdinand and Isabella said: “So Chris – we hear you want to sail off and discover a new world or something.” And Columbus said: “Nah – I thought I’d go kill some Injuns.” “Great Idea – here’s some cash for the trip.”

And for this reason, liberals across the nation have been protesting the celebration of this murderer. Instead of Columbus Day, many cities and enclaves of higher learning have begun making the politically correct change to “Indigenous People’s Day.” Last October Seattle made the switch to “a holiday that will honor and celebrate the cultural contributions of Native Americans.” Hooray for Indigenous People! Boo for genocidal European illegal immigrant interlopers!

And this week at the University of Oklahoma,  a student “organization” calling themselves “Indigenize OU” is making demands that Columbus be thrown on the ash heap of history and replaced with the aforementioned “Indigenous People’s Day.” This “organization” actually consists of four – yes four American Indian students. read more

Sponsoring the Agents of Our Own Demise

by: the Common Constitutionalist

According to U.S. Census Data, “the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of [legal] immigration into the United States.”

“Pew Research has estimated that immigration will cause the population of U.S. Muslims to more than double over the next two decades—from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030. This demographic change is entirely the product of legal admissions – that is, it is a formal policy of the federal government adopted by Congress.”

And over 50% of Muslims currently residing in America believe they have a choice of being governed by Sharia, instead of the Constitution and U.S. law. Their reasoning is that the Constitution was written by man, whereas Sharia is the law of Allah. As their population expands, we should expect that percentage to grow.

Similarly, National Review reported , “Dearborn, Michigan is home to just under 100,000 people, about 40 percent of whom are Muslim. In 2013, a leaked government document revealed that more people from Dearborn were on the federal terrorist watch list than from any other city except New York,” and NYC has a population of well over 8 million. read more

The University of Intolerance

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Imagine you are a “Black Lives Matter” student organizer at a university. Let’s just pick any college – say – Boise State University in Idaho. And just say you are organizing a two day “Black Lives Matter” event and wish to get the word out to other students and faculty.

You contact the student newspaper, the Arbiter,  to advertise the event. You’re not looking for a handout – you’re willing to buy ad space, but the school paper refuses to sell the ad space to promote the “Black Lives Matter” event. They claim the content is not acceptable.

Now does anyone think we wouldn’t hear about this on every national news broadcast, every morning program, the View, etc.? There would be such an outcry; you would think someone had been murdered.

But we didn’t hear about this, because I made it up, but it would be the same scenario if it were regarding same-sex marriage or an LGBTQIA, E-I-E-I-O event. The outrage over the intolerance of the school paper and the small minded bigoted student editors would be cacophonous!

There would be no where you could go without hearing the cries of hatred and prejudice. read more

Not All Educators Are Impoverished

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The other day I had a bit of a verbal dustup with a young lady at the gym regarding teachers and teaching in general. She overheard a friend of mine and I talking about how teachers only work nine months but get paid for 12 – not to mention their benefits and retirement.

As it turns out she was not merely a teacher, but a hard-line union advocate. She said that we were all wet. She actually was a bit more colorful, but that was the gist. She said that the “average” salary is severely skewed because of the amount of teachers who have been teaching for years. She claimed to know teachers who are forced to go on food stamps and other forms of assistance. She added that teachers work much harder than people think and it requires a lot of education.

Neither I nor my friend bothered to confront her. We were caught a bit flat-footed and simply didn’t feel like getting into it at the time. It also seemed to me that any confrontation would be fruitless, considering her attitude.

I admit that teachers salaries do vary from state to state. Generally, the more liberal the state, the more a teacher makes. And why is this? Is it because liberals care more about “the children?” No – it’s because the teachers unions in liberal states are in bed with the very politicians that vote on their contracts. It’s a money laundering scheme. The politicians agree to a fat union contract, the teachers pay union dues and the dues are funneled back to the politicians’ reelection campaign.

Good teachers can never be paid what they’re worth because the system will not allow the cream to rise to the top. That’s the way unions work – all unions. read more

Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative Is a Scam

by: the Common Constitutionalist

One of President Obama’s pet initiatives is the My Brother’s Keeper Foundation. The initiative was set up to help the minority community’s
“persistent educational gap between boys of color and white boys.”

“In May, the president said that business and nonprofit leaders who support My Brother’s Keeper are ‘not doing this out of charity’ or to assuage societal guilt. They’re doing this because they know that making sure all of our young people have the opportunity to succeed is an economic imperative.”

And in April, Obama announced that My Brother’s Keeper is “spinning off from the White House and becoming an independent foundation, in preparation for his departure from the Oval Office in 2017. My Brother’s Keeper Alliance will be modeled in part after the Clinton Global Initiative, started by former president Bill Clinton in 2005. The foundation will channel corporate and individual donations to existing programs for minority youth.”

Well, what better foundation for one crook to model after than another – the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton (crime family) Foundation. Oh, they’ll channel corporate individual donations all right. It’s called pay to play and the Clinton’s have perfected it. Why wouldn’t Obama model his foundation after theirs? read more

Going to College? – Become a Mute

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s a very exciting time for some kids. Many children have already begun to pack up to leave home for the first time and head off to college. In about three weeks or so, kids from all over will begin to move out of the house and into the dorms at the University of New Hampshire (UNH), in Durham New Hampshire.

Hopefully the children are ready for the change from home life to campus life, but I doubt it, unless they have already received and memorized from cover to cover the “UNH Bias-Free Language Guide.”

If the students have not already done this, they had better get to it, for things could get uncomfortable on campus for the unindoctrinated.

The guide’s indoctrination begins immediately, without even a welcoming message.

Under the heading, “Language as Leadership,” the guide says, “Language has been described as complicated, intriguing and beautiful. Benjamin Lee Whorf said, ‘Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we can think about.’ Some writers have commented on language as the biggest barrier to human progress…”

Right away we can see where this is going. Language, is in fact the way most people express thoughts, not the opposite, and it “determines what we can think about?” What?! Actually it appears that the thought and language police will determine what students “think about.” And language isn’t a barrier to progress, but is the biggest barrier to the continuity of community and country. But I’m sure were not supposed to broach that topic on campus. read more

The New Nationalism Is Latino-Centric

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When one mentions nationalism, for most people, it conjures up a vision of national pride. A USA, USA -we’re number one, love for America. Some might even refer to this as jingoistic.

Well, not anymore – at least for ThinkProgress  and some in Hollywood. You see, as ThinkProgress writes: “Latinos Are Now the Majority in California. Will Hollywood Change to Reflect That?”

I can’t say I’m surprised by this, given that probably 10% of Mexico’s population resides in California. ThinkProgress adds that “by 2060, half of all California residents will be Latino.” I don’t think it will take that long.

So what’s the lefts beef this time? It seems that Latinos aren’t being represented fairly in Hollywood. “In 2013, only 5.2% of network TV writing positions were filled by Latinos, and only 2.7% of directors. Among silver screen actors, they accounted for only 4% of Oscar contenders for the major categories, between 2002 and 2012. They only received 1.6% of the primetime Emmy nods between 2002 and 2013. And the reality is that the vast majority of actors and actresses are relegated to stereotypical roles: maids and criminals.”

But what is Hollywood supposed to do? Heck, on my cable system, there must be 20 or more Spanish language channels as opposed to what -one, two, maybe three black channels. Sounds to me like they are being represented fairly adequately. read more

Will a Trans Military Satisfy the Left?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The left will never be satisfied. No matter how many times conservatives, the religious, and others compromised, hoping this will finally satisfy the left, it will never be enough.

The radical left, a tiny but obnoxiously loud minority is now evidently dictating policy for the entire country. And as I stated – no matter how much we give them, it will never be enough.

Now that homosexuals have been given the right to wed countrywide by five of the nine Olympians, I’m sure many on the right thought to themselves – well – glad that’s over with. At least we don’t have to fight over that anymore. Maybe the left will finally take a break and let us be for a while. Well – think again.

Right on cue, as if some wacky leftist think tank has a check list of demands, and they’re just ticking them off one by one, the issue of transgenders in the military is popping up again.

Homosexuals in the military. Repeal don’t ask don’t tell – check.

Homosexual marriage in all 50 states and the known galaxies – check. read more
