Commie Homophobia in China

Posted on | April 26, 2017 | No Comments

LGBT activists recently got into an uproar about Chinese homophobes:

Basketball team members in China carried a banner saying “defend core socialist values” and “keep homosexuality far from campus” at a university [April 16], sparking outrage.
Ling Bing, the women’s basketball team coach at Huazhong University of Science and Technology of Central China, posted a photo of team members carrying the banner online, The New York Times reported [April 20].
“Protect traditional Chinese morals,” read the banner. “Defend core socialist values. Resist corrosion from decadent Western thoughts. Keep homosexuality far from campus.”
Upon receiving backlash for posting the picture, Ling noted what he perceived to be a “double standard” — gay students flaunt rainbow flags at graduation, but the banner held by his basketball team was deemed wrong, as reported by The New York Times.

What kind of crazy world are we living in, when the only people speaking in defense of “traditional morals” are Chinese Communists?

Because Sluts Should Be Ashamed

Posted on | April 26, 2017 | No Comments

Hannah Witton gives young women bad advice on YouTube.

Of the many bad ideas to emerge from feminism, few are as harmful as the attempt to de-stigmatize promiscuity. I say “attempt,” because the stigma will always remain, no matter how much rhetorical ammunition feminists unload at their target. Our basic sense of right and wrong tells us that screwing around — fornication, to use an old-fashioned word — is a bad idea, and is especially harmful to the interests of women. When you examine the anti-male rage of radical feminists, you find that most of their grievances can be traced to the emotional harms suffered by women in what is nowadays called “hook-up” culture. And these harms occur more frequently because so-called “pro-sex feminism” tells young women they can screw around without consequences. There is thus an internecine conflict between two feminist groups, the liberal “pro-sex” wing of the movement and those radicals who, in the 1980s, became known as “anti-sex” feminists. (This conflict was described, from a radical perspective, in the 1990 book Sexual Liberals and the Attack on Feminism.) It is by no means unusual for a young woman to become a liberal feminist as a teenager excited about the “empowerment” of sexual “liberation,” only to shift to radical feminism after enduring the inevitable humiliations any young woman is apt to experience while chasing hedonistic thrills.

“You can sleep with hundreds and hundreds of people,
and as long as each encounter was special in its own way
— fun, consensual, full of mutual understanding
and respect — great, no problems there.”

When I encountered this remarkable claim in a video by British YouTube personality Hannah Witton, I was astonished. No intelligent person could really believe this, but “pro-sex” feminism involves a lot of allegedly clever young women (Ms. Witton is a mere 25) promoting such arrant nonsense to an Internet audience of teenage girls. This irresponsible advocacy of bad behavior contributes to the hypersexualized climate that is quite literally driving young women insane. The epidemic of mental illness among adolescent girls — depression, anxiety, eating disorders and even gender dysphoria — is a direct consequence of a perverse popular culture that shouts sex! sex! sex! at young people 24/7.

 

Experts in England are worried:

Now a new study shows a worrying rise in mental health problems among teenagers in the UK. According to the Department of Education, which spoke to 30,000 pupils aged 14-15, more than one in three teen girls suffer from anxiety or depression. It’s a rise of 10 per cent in the past decade, leading experts to call it a “slow-growing epidemic.”
Out of the girls surveyed, 37 per cent had three or more symptoms of psychological distress, for example feeling worthless or unable to concentrate, compared to 15 per cent of boys.

Of course, feminists are concerned about this, but how can feminism be the solution when feminism is so much of the problem? If the experts are serious about this mental-health “epidemic,” they need to address the problem of “pro-sex” propaganda from the likes of Hannah Witton:

Feminist rhetoric against “slut-shaming” requires a belief that promiscuity has no harmful consequences, either to the individuals involved or to society at large. Anyone who believes that is a fool. . . .
Ms. Witton has just published a book about sex — full of “anecdotes, confessions and revelations,” she promises — and any skeptical reader should ask, “What is the basis of her authority to dispense sex advice?” What makes Hannah Wilton any more knowledgeable about this subject than any other 25-year-old woman? In the Google Age, anyone can quickly access anything they really need to know on the subject of sex, so what sort of expertise can this young woman claim that would qualify her to lecture the rest of us? And if you’re offering advice on sex, shouldn’t success be a criteria? . . .

Report: Police Investigating Eric Clanton in Berkeley ‘Anti-Fascist’ Attack

Posted on | April 25, 2017 | No Comments

Activists accuse Eric Clanton of attacking Trump supporters in Berkeley.

Last week, Diablo Valley College instructor Eric Clanton was accused of being the masked anarchist who used a heavy bicycle lock to smash the head of a Trump supporter at an April 15 Berkeley rally.

Now the Golden Gate Xpress, a student newspaper at San Francisco State University, has confirmed that Berkeley police are investigating Clanton, and the interim president of Diablo Community College has issued an email statement: “The adjunct faculty member that has been alleged to have committed this crime is NOT currently teaching at DVC.”

An editorial in the Diablo Valley College student newspaper complains:

National news networks from all the way from Florida to New York were calling DVC offices for an explanation or a confirmation of the internet witch-hunting allegations. . . .
4chan is notorious for their past as internet renegades who pride themselves as witch-hunting investigators hunting through the internet looking for clue to unravel internet anonymity. . . .
However, this style of investigating in the open also removes the private and personal aspect to an investigation.
What if the person being targeted had nothing to do with this event? Their reputation has been tarnished without any due process.
What happened to being innocent until proven guilty? Instead, one is guilty until proven innocent.

When did the Left suddenly discover this concern for due process? Too bad leftists weren’t worried about due process when feminist witch-hunters were destroying male students in what K.C. Johnson and Stuart Taylor have called The Campus Rape Frenzy. Oh, but the Obama administration and Democrats approved of denying students due process in those cases, whereas in the case of masked thugs committing violence against Trump supporters, Democrats find themselves on the other side of the “due process” argument. The inconsistency of the Left in such matters exposes the crude partisanship of their politics, which is based on a blind hatred of Republicans, and which justifies any means of advancing the Democrat Party agenda. One can defend due process (and abhor vigilantism) while at the same time recognizing that citizens attempting to identify a masked criminal are on the side of truth and justice.

Let everyone carefully examine the evidence that 4chan compiled about the Berkeley bike-lock attacker and decide for themselves whether Eric Clanton has been incorrectly identified as the suspect. Your opinion in this matter has no force in law, and therefore does not infringe Clanton’s legal rights from a due-process perspective. If it is true that Clanton’s “reputation has been tarnished” by 4chan’s activity, Clanton might undo this damage very easily by issuing a statement denying that he attended the April 15 rally where this criminal attack occurred.

Eric Clanton has not made such a denial.

What he has done instead is to delete much of his online presence in what some might interpret as an attempt to destroy evidence.

Suppose, as a hypothetical, that Eric Clanton is innocent. Are the police in Berkeley doing anything to identify, apprehend and prosecute the person responsible for violently attacking Trump supporters April 15? If an innocent man has been wrongly accused, it is up to the Berkeley police to absolve Eric Clanton by apprehending the real attacker.

In the meantime, Eric Clanton could defend his “tarnished” reputation merely by denying that he was in Berkeley on April 15. The fact that he has not denied being in Berkeley — when six days have passed since 4chan accused him of the bike-lock attack — is rather suspicious, isn’t it?

Again, the evidence compiled by 4chan is publicly available online for your examination, and you have a right to form your own opinion.



 

Tampa Teacher @LoraJane Hates Christians, Promotes LGBT in Class

Posted on | April 25, 2017 | 1 Comment

 

The state of Florida pays Lora Jane Riedas to promote atheism and homosexuality at Riverview High School. She also teaches math:

A teacher in Orlando, Florida is under fire for allegedly forcing students to take off their Christian cross necklaces, and for “promoting an LGBT agenda” in class.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the Liberty Counsel organization sent a letter to Hillsborough County Superintendent Jeff Eakins claiming that teacher Lora Jane Riedas “barred at least three students from wearing Christian crosses on necklaces in her classroom, claiming they are ‘gang symbols.’”
Riedas, a math teacher at Riverview High School, also engaged in gay rights political activism during class time, according to the complaint.
“Ms. Riedas clearly seeks opportunities to engage in GLSEN-directed classroom activism, which has called on teachers to use its ‘Educator Guide’ to promote GLSEN’s views about homosexuality and gender confusion on ‘Day of Silence,’ and to do so this Friday, April 21, 2017,” Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver wrote.

 

Did I mention she’s a Democrat? Because that’s what this is really about. Democrats hate Jesus, Democrats run the public schools and they want every kid in Florida to be an atheist homosexual Democrat. If you are a Florida parent who voted for Donald Trump, your tax dollars are paying for schools where Democrats teach your children to hate you.

How did this happen? Democrats control the university system (nearly all political donations by top professors go to Democrats) and a university degree is required to become a public school teacher. Because Democrats control teachers’ unions (which gave nearly $30 million to Democrats in 2016), they also control the hiring process in public schools, and are usually able to dominate local school board elections. Democrats use their control of the taxpayer-supported education system to promote the Democrat Party agenda, indoctrinating children with atheism and socialism, and encouraging sexual deviance among young people.

It is impossible to exaggerate how decadent the U.S. public school system has become. Liberty Counsel reports that Riedas’ lesbian partner, Riverview High chemistry teacher Valerie Chuchman, “dressed as a nun for school spirit week, complete with a ‘cross necklace’ made of skulls. She tweeted she has ‘a bad habit’ and the point is to be ‘creepy.'”

When the Democrats who control the school system talk about “diversity” and “inclusion,” this is a code for attacking Christianity.

In their letter to the superintendent of Hillsborough County schools, the Liberty Counsel lawyers cite two Supreme Court decisions:

The law is also clear that parents, not agents of the state, including Ms. Riedas, and certainly not GLSEN, have the right to direct the upbringing and associations of their children. The law presumes that parents possess what a child lacks in maturity, experience, and capacity for judgment required for making life’s difficult decisions, not activist school employees.  “The fundamental theory of liberty upon which all governments in this Union repose excludes any general power of the State to standardize its children. . . The child is not the mere creature of the State;” Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510 (1925). (Emphasis added). “The history and culture of Western civilization reflect a strong tradition of parental concern for the nurture and upbringing of their children. This primary role of the parents in the upbringing of their children is now established beyond debate as an enduring American tradition.” Wisconsin v. Yoder, 406 U.S. 205 (1972).

The public school system is anti-Christian and also anti-American. Why? Because the Democrat Party hates Christians and hates America.

 

Rule 5 Sunday: Hyundai Race Queens

Posted on | April 23, 2017 | 1 Comment

It’s time again for our weekly break from politics and celebration of God’s creation, especially the part of it that’s young, female, and human. Since my Elantra got crunched Friday night in a hit & run, I’m on muscle relaxants and pain pills, and thinking about the next set of wheels, since this one is probably going to be totaled after the insurance adjusters get a look at it. Since Hyundai has built my last three cars (except for that Jeep my brother gave me) it’s only natural I’d be thinking about one of those, and since it’s Sunday, I’m also thinking about “race queens”, the good looking ladies Asian car makers have showing off their cars at various races and exhibitions. Today, our appetizer is Kim Ha Um, who as you can see works for Hyundai.
