Masks are All About the Virtue Signalling

from the Blaze:

Wisconsin state employees required to wear masks even when they’re home in virtual meetings

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has taken face mask requirements to a new level, mandating that employees wear the masks even if they’re at home on virtual meetings, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

This department rule is not backed up by any public health guidance, department officials openly admit that the purpose is to virtue signal that masks are important and the department takes them seriously. From the Journal Sentinel:

Natural Resources Secretary Preston Cole reminded employees in a July 31 email that Gov. Tony Evers’ mask order was going into effect the next day. That means every DNR employee must wear a mask while in a DNR facility, noted Cole, an appointee of the Democratic governor.

“Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff,” Cole told his employees. “Set the safety example which shows you as a DNR public service employee care about the safety and health of others.”

Portland Cop Serves Woke Leftists

from the Blaze:

Portland cops handcuff female protester, get asked if female cop is there for pat-down. Male officer quips, ‘How do you know that I don’t identify as a female?’

Woke observers who heard the officer’s sarcastic reply were most definitely triggered

Portland police have endured literally months of nightly rioting that left-wing politicians and reporters routinely brushed off as “mostly peaceful protests.” They’ve been getting pelted with rocks, explosives, and other projectiles.

They’ve put up with physical violence from Antifa and Black Lives Matter militants whose latest escapade was trying to burn down a police precinct — and splashing paint on an elderly woman who dared to stand up to the mob. read more

ABL on Police Presence in Black Neighborhoods

Anthony Brian Logan is from the Hood. He grew up in the Hood. In other words, he knows of what he speaks.

He was recently discussing a Gallup poll about the need for police, across four racial demographics.

You’d never know by listening to and watching these BLM activists, woke leftists or the main stream media, but the poll reveals that an overwhelming majority of blacks polled actually want police in their neighborhoods, either at the same historic levels or more than they have now.

The Hodge Twins have some Questions for Oprah

The Hodge Twins are on fire over the nonsense being spouted by Oprah Winfrey.

They call her out – this billionaire black woman who somehow managed to make it big despite America being so racist. How is that possible they ask?

Hilarious!

Video Podcast – It’s White Privilege to get a Good Night Sleep

by: Brent Smith

The following is not tongue-in-cheek or satire.

And it is not new, as I discovered this VICE article from January, 2019.

Did you know that, “Reparations for Black People Should Include Rest?” Well that’s the title of the VICE article.

It turns that black Americans don’t sleep as well as whites, and now we discover that “time” is a colonialist invention.

Want to witness more insanity? You do? Well watch this video. Just make sure you’re seated and have your head tightly duct taped. It may explode. read more

The Chicago Tribune Punishes Top Columnist for Being Even-Handed

from the American Thinker:

Cancel culture attacks John Kass, the Chicago Tribune’s top columnist

Since 1980, John Kass has been a fixture at the Chicago Tribune, where he writes columns about political topics. The Tribune has labeled him their “lead columnist.” Kass hews conservative but works to be even-handed.

That even-handedness wasn’t enough to save Kass, though, when he asserted, correctly, that prosecutors who got massive election funding from George Soros groups are a big part of the problem with the growing lawlessness in America’s Democrat-run cities. The same leftists who loath Israel sprang to Soros’s defense: Kass, they said, was anti-Semitic, and had to be punished. read more

The Right is Afraid to Speak Up

from the American Spectator:

More Evidence That Trump’s Silent Majority Is Real

When President Trump insisted last month that his supporters included a substantial silent majority that isn’t represented in the polls, the Democrats and the corporate media devoted a surprisingly large amount of energy to “debunking” the claim. Indeed, their reaction was so shrill and ubiquitous that they seemed, to paraphrase Hamlet’s hapless mother, to be protesting too much.

A new poll released Wednesday by the Cato Institute suggests a reason for this frantic reaction to Trump’s assertion. The survey of 2,000 Americans 18 years of age and older unambiguously indicates that the reluctance of moderates and conservatives to share their political views has increased significantly since 2017. read more

Now being ‘Healthy’ equals White Supremacy

Have you ever known anyone you think just can’t be happy unless they are complaining about something?

Well here ya go!

from the American Spectator:

‘Healthy’ Is Now Racist

How “woke” are you? No matter how attuned you may be to social-justice ideology, you’re probably not as woke as Maxine Ali. She is the kind of young feminist who spells “women” as womxn while slinging around academic jargon about “normative gender binaries.” Ms. Ali does most of her “activism” on her Instagram account, which, until a few years ago, was a typical sort of “influencer” account about food and exercise. But that was before Ms. Ali got herself a master’s degree from King’s College London, where critical theory is a central component of the curriculum. Critical theory is to cultural Marxism what a hammer is to carpentry; Ms. Ali is now qualified to identify systemic oppression wherever it may be found, which is to say, everywhere.

“The social construction of the ‘healthy’ body promotes norms that preserve white supremacy,” Ms. Ali proclaimed last month in an Instagram post, which detailed at length how BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color) are oppressed by the “white normativity” involved in “discourses of health”:

When people talk about health and refer to a “healthy body,” Whiteness is often assumed because it is what we have always seen in visual representations and performances of health.…

The prevailing dietary and lifestyle practices that constitute “healthy living” glorify White middle-class standards of food consumption and living as the singularly correct standard. Within this is also an inferentially racist logic that only by embodying White norms, and by downplaying ethnic difference, can BIPOC achieve a state of health and success.

White dominance is bolstered by healthism. The strategy of charging individuals with a moral duty to stay well obscures the effects of structural racism that underpin society and produce health inequity.

Discourses of health function to re-secure white privilege. The conflation of the thin, white “healthy” body with beauty, morality and desirability aims to preserve racial hierarchies. Health discourses position Whiteness as “good” and “pure,” whilst simultaneously devaluing Brown and Black bodies and framing them as “bad,” deviant and pathological.

We cannot use the term “health” uncritically. We cannot have conversations about Wellness without acknowledging how its structures and performances facilitate the exclusion, marginalisation and harm of BIPOC. It’s time to call it out. [Emphasis added.]

Safety at All Cost Trumps the Bill of Rights Again

What’s the difference between the Communist Chinese dragging people out of their homes for “safety” sake, and today’s America?

Answer: Location – that’s all. One is forced to leave their home, the other is forced to stay put.

Now what’s the difference between the Communist Chinese welding peoples’ doors shut so they can’t escape, and demanding American citizens not leave their home under penalty of the new police State? Answer: Very little.

Is this what we’ve so rapidly devolved into?

Kentucky Couple Forced To Wear Ankle Bracelets After Refusing Self-Isolation Order

A Kentucky couple can’t travel more than 200 feet from home after authorities slapped a pair of ankle bracelets on them following an argument over COVID-19.

Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for the virus last weekend despite having no symptoms. Following her test, the health department contacted her and asked that she sign documents agreeing to self-quarantine unless she calls the health department first. Linscott refused to sign the form, the Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order. read more

WND Exclusive – Sorry, but Native Americans aren’t ‘native,’ either

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There is presently a big push not only to rewrite both history and the present regarding blacks and slavery, but now the cancel culture mob has decided to also include American Indian heritage, at the expense of the evil white European settlers/oppressors.

Actually, we know what this really is and has been about – free market capitalism vs. Marxism/communism, but that’s for another time.

The Washington Redskins football team has been cowed into dropping the name “Redskins” for something more appropriate and sensitive to the feelings of Native Americans. The Washington Code Talkers really rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it. Don’t laugh – it’s a real suggestion.

Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, does Oklahoma now have to be split in half and given back to the Indians? How is that going to work, Justice Gorsuch? read more
