3 Arrested for Gang Rape: More Violence Against Women Feminists Won’t Notice

Posted on | November 16, 2017 | 1 Comment

Left to right: Jason Tyquan Hammonds, James Haywood III, Brandon McKenzie

WNCN-TV in North Carolina reports:

A woman who said she was sexually assaulted turned to Facebook Live to tell her story, which resulted in the arrest of a man and two teen suspects, Cumberland County authorities said Monday.
The incident took place on Nov. 2 after the woman posted an “ad for companionship” online, according to a news release from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
The victim was later contacted by one of the three suspects asking her for a date, officials said.
The woman went to a residence in the 2200 block of Carbine Street where she encountered the three men, deputies said.
“The suspects displayed handguns and demanded the victim’s money. After emptying her pockets, the victim was told to remove all of her clothes,” deputies said in the release. “The three suspects then made the victim perform sexual acts.”
Authorities said the victim “was not sure where else to turn” about a week after the incident, so she “told her story to Facebook Live.”
Detectives said they were able to corroborate the victim’s account and arrested the trio Sunday. . . .
James Haywood III, 21, of the 2100 block of Ladyslipper Drive was charged with first-degree forcible rape, robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree kidnapping, and felony conspiracy.
Jason Tyquan Hammonds, 18, of the 2200 block of Carbine Street was charged with first-degree forcible rape, robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree kidnapping, felony conspiracy, first-degree forcible sex offense and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Brandon McKenzie, 17, of the 5600 block of Hardwick Lane was charged with first-degree forcible rape, robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree kidnapping, felony conspiracy and first-degree forcible sex offense.

Police say they are investigating the possibility that the men have victimized other women. Feminists have said nothing, for some reason.

Tumblr Feminism: So Stupid It Hurts

Posted on | November 14, 2017 | No Comments

Tumblr Feminist 1:

The way some of these people defend gender reveal parties, they talk like it’s a centuries long tradition and not something made up in the last decade in reaction against gay + trans people gaining positive social visibility

Tumblr Feminist 2:

it’s absurd how quickly it’s been normalized!

Ask yourself, what gave rise to “gender reveal parties”?

Answer: Prenatal ultrasound, which since the 1980s has become a routine method of determining the sex (not “gender”) of children (not “fetuses”) before they are born. It was impossible to have a “gender reveal” party prior to the widespread use of ultrasound technology, because parents didn’t know whether it was a boy or a girl until it was born.

Where do these Tumblr feminists get the idea that “gender reveal parties” were “made up . . . in reaction against” LGBT “social visibility”? What kind of warped self-referential paranoia does this express?

 

The Poisonous Fruit of ‘Social Justice’

Posted on | November 14, 2017 | No Comments

 

Everyone is commenting on this New York Times column in which a black professor offers an argument that could be reduced to a syllogism:

Premise A: Donald Trump got elected.
Premise B: Donald Trump is racist;

ergo,

Conclusion: Black children can’t be friends with white children.

Really, this is the essence of his argument, a bizarre non sequitur rooted in a profound sense of racial paranoia derived from the identity-politics calculations of Democrat Party “social justice” propaganda. Although he tries to marshal evidence in support of his anti-white attitude, the entire argument of his 1,500-word screed is built upon a simple foundation: Democrats, good. Republicans, racist.

Claiming that racism is so pervasive in American society as to be ubiquitous, and then making Republicans the scapegoats for this problem, has been a basic strategy of Democrats for more than 30 years. This reached its apogee during the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election, simply because Democrat operatives feared that Hillary Clinton would not get the strong black support that helped Obama win two terms in office. Anyone who analyzes the 2016 election result must admit that there was good reason for Democrats to be worried about this problem, and it seems obvious that the Black Lives Matter movement (which Hillary endorsed and which George Soros funded) was part of the Democrats’ plan to motivate and mobilize black voters. In other words, it was pure, partisan power politics.

Why should anyone believe that Trump’s victory owes more to white “racism” than to other factors? It will not do to answer this with anecdotes or social-science research demonstrating the mere fact that racism exists. No one denies this. But there is no reason to believe that racism is more prevalent in 2017 than it was in 2007 or 1997 or any other previous year. So why would a law school professor decide that Trump’s election justifies abandoning all hope of racial peace in America?

Because he’s a Democrat, that’s why.

The “social justice” gospel preached by Democrats is believed with pious devotion in academia. Republicans are effectively prohibited from employment in our universities, which have been turned into cult compounds where no one is permitted to question progressive beliefs. Professor Ekow Yankah’s bizarre arguments are representative of the ideology propagated on campuses where dissent is forbidden as “hate.” What happens when these ideas are applied in the real world?

Look no further than Baltimore, where Mayor Catherine Pugh admits that violence is “out of control” since the 2015 “Black Lives Matter” anti-police riots. Michael Walsh at PJ Media comments:

In the aftermath of the Ferguson riots in Missouri and the Freddie Gray fiasco in Baltimore, the decriminalization of crime in the name of “social justice” — long a goal of the cultural-Marxist Left — got fully underway. The result was exactly what anyone not fully invested in Critical Theory would have expected. . . .
Baltimore, a city whose best years ended more than a century ago, is a prime example of what happens when citizens are categorized by skin color or cultural background, and then have differing standards of behavior applied to them by what should be an impartial justice system. Instead of “social justice,” the outcome is social disruption, mistrust, resentment, lawlessness and, if left unchecked, anarchy and civil war.

“Social justice” is an attack on society itself. It is a wholly destructive ideology that incites conflict and unleashes the very worst impulses in human beings. No one’s life and property are safe in cities like Baltimore, yet the identity-politics formula of the Democrat Party (which is taught as gospel at our universities) leads black people who suffer under these policies to blame white people — and especially Republicans — for their problems. So the worse life becomes for black people, the more militantly anti-white the Democrat rhetoric becomes. This is how you arrive at the point where a hatemonger like Ekow Yankah is employed as a university law professor, using his faculty pulpit to preach racial hostility, and the New York Times is willing to publish his work.

 

Democrats should be ashamed of themselves, but if they had any sense of shame, they wouldn’t be Democrats, would they?





 

Late Night With Rule 5 Monday:
Twin Peaks

Posted on | November 14, 2017 | 3 Comments

For reasons best known to their marketing departments, some of the restaurants offering free food to veterans put off actually doing so until today, and one of those was Twin Peaks, one of a number of contenders in the “breastaurant” category of sports bar franchises that includes Hooters, Tilted Kilt, and probably some others I’m not aware of. The ladies at the local Twin Peaks above Planet Hollywood had eschewed their usual plaid tops for some urban camo tops, and I wish I’d had the presence of mind to take some pics. Since I didn’t, here’s one of their waitresses in more traditional uniform.

The Queer State of California

Posted on | November 13, 2017 | 1 Comment

 

News from the Left Coast:

The Palm Springs, Calif., City Council now has transgender and bisexual members — and is entirely LGBT or queer.
Lisa Middleton made history as the first openly trans candidate elected to a nonjudicial office in California (Victoria Kolakowski was elected an Alameda County Superior Court judge in 2010). She and Christy Holstege, a bi woman, won the two open seats on the City Council in a field of six candidates in Tuesday’s election. Their election means that the desert city’s council is 100 percent LGBT or queer, according to Equality California, with representation from across the spectrum of those identities.

This consolidation of LGBT power was celebrated by Equality California and the Victory Fund. The latter group spent more than $600 million during the 2012 election campaign. In politics, a highly organized (and well-funded) minority can always defeat the disorganized majority. This is why the preferences of lobbyists matter more in Washington than do the interests of average Americans. The success of the LGBT lobby in gaining complete control of Palm Springs government demonstrates this, and also demonstrates that demographics is destiny.

The media age of the population of Palm Springs is 51, substantially older than the U.S. median age of 37. Why is this? Well, Palm Springs attracts a lot of retirees, and has very few children. Those under age 15 are only 11% of Palm Springs residents, whereas nearly 20% of the U.S. population is under 15. If the residents of Palm Springs are having very few children, and the elderly residents don’t work, where will they find the workforce to provide all the services necessary to maintain this affluent community of nearly 50,000? Oh, yes — immigrants. Twenty-five percent of Palm Springs residents are Hispanic, and another 5 percent are Asian. Who do you think will be working behind the counter at the Petsmart store in Palm Springs when the rich white gay people go shopping for Christmas gifts for their cats? Who collects their garbage and hauls it to the landfill? What is the ethnicity of the housekeeping staff at the Palm Springs hospital where the white old folks go when they’re sick?

There is an obvious correlation between support for “gay rights” and advocacy of an open-borders immigration policy. Rich white liberals (gay or otherwise) tend to have few children if any, and are in favor of importing brown people to work in menial service jobs. The lesbian sociology professor flatters herself that she is supporting “diversity” as she buys her $3 Starbucks latte from the Salvadoran barista.

The Kakistocracy points out that white liberals often ride to power on brown horses, so to speak. Yet this is always a transient phenomenon, as eventually the riders will be tossed from their saddles. Herb Stein famously observed, “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop,” and the kind of demographic trend exemplified by the election of an all-LGBT city council in Palm Springs is ultimately unsustainable.
