A few years ago the Ontario Human Rights Commission toyed with the idea of assigning itself the authority to decide whom your friends should be… ’cause you can’t let ordinary racist dumb people decide that for themselves, they’ll just get it wrong.
Here in America, our looniversities are every bit as evilly wacko as the OHRC. Like f’rinstance:
Honestly, we must be freakin’ suicidal, letting this go on and on–and paying for it, too! Paying colossal amounts of money! In addition to the harm Harvard does to souls and minds, it also sucks up more than 40 billion of our dollars every year.
For which we get $40 billion worth of neo-Stalinist claptrap.
We have 24 comments here so far, by the way. Feel free to add more.
I don’t know about you, but I could hardly sleep at night, knowing that a 91-year-old man in Indiana had set up a museum of his lifetime’s travels, featuring mementos and souvenirs from all over the world. We can all breath a sigh of relief, now that the FBI has sent armed agents to break in and confiscate all his stuff.
My aunts had a lot of little knickknacks from wherever. Somehow the FBI missed them.
Quickie contest: Name one federal agency that wasn’t warped and corrupted by the Obama administration.
I wasn’t able to write a Newswithviews column this week. But since leftids have stolen our country out from under us and are trying to kill it before we can get it back, I thought this 2019 essay worth revisiting.
Make no mistake about it: theirs is a country-destroying ideology that littered the 20th century with the corpses of the innocent. Leftist governments create poverty, fear, mendacity, crime, and violence.
As we’ll shortly see for ourselves. It’s already happening.
See, they were having a panel on “microaggression,” and a second-year student had the bad manners to ask some questions. Questions! At a university! Whoa! And hard questions, at that–like, what exactly is microaggression, who needs to be protected from it and who doesn’t, etc., etc. Five whole minutes he consumed! And the lecturer was so rattled, she went crying to the looniversity authorities–who suspended the student and advised him to check himself in for psychiatric evaluation–because anyone must be mad, to question the dogma of microaggression. Stark, staring mad.
When the student didn’t go quietly to the rubber room, the authorities expelled him. So he sued them on a laundry list of charges; and most of them the judge threw out, but the suit over the erasure of the plaintiff’s free speech rights will go forward.
We pray he is awarded punitive damages steep enough to make the whole university howl. People need to be fired over this. There should be no place in America that runs just like it was the Soviet Union circa 1970. Including our colleges and universities.
The new all-purpose salutation is “Stay safe,” and I don’t much like it. I mean… how safe? One hundred percent risk-free?
If by “Stay safe” they mean be extraordinarily risk-averse, tremble in fear of germs here, germs there, germs everywhere, and always believe and obey The Government no matter how many times they’re caught lying and cheating–if that’s what “Stay safe” is getting at, I think the polite reply ought to be, “Thanks, but I’d rather stay free.”
If people are going to give up their freedoms, they ought at least be forced to think about it. (“Honest, we’ll give you back your freedom as soon as we can guarantee a germ-free environment–you have our word on it!”)
Meanwhile, they’re saying almost half of America is in favor of “vaccine passports”–that is, you lose your freedom of movement unless you can prove you’ve had your COVID shot. This is unprecedented in American history, uproariously unconstitutional–and you can bet Democrats are licking their lips over it and just can’t wait to lay it on us.
Which was what Shawnee State Looniversity tried to do to a philosophy professor: knuckle under or lose your job. They got it past a district court, but the Sixth Circuit reversed that ruling.
I mean, really–what value has the First Amendment if they can make you say things you believe to be not only untrue, but wicked according to your religion? Whose idea of “freedom” is that? [Hint: a liberal’s.]
So now the professor can sue Shawnee State for damages, and let’s pray he sets them back a bundle. Because this must stop.
What else are they going to try to make you say, once they’ve got the “trans” nailed down? They heap abomination on top of abomination, and still expect to prosper.
But I don’t call losing our freedom (to say nothing of our dignity!) prospering.
“Every business in America must sign a pledge that the election of Joseph Biden was free and fair and produced accurate, reliable results…” They call it “The Democracy Pledge”–barf bag, please–and if you won’t sign it, watch out. They will bury you.
What in the world was this freak doing in the Justice Dept.? How did such a creature emerge from our schools (I’m afraid that one answers itself). I mean, wouldn’t he feel much more at home in North Korea?
Boy, oh, boy–when libs say “democracy,” watch out! Next thing you know, it’s barbed wire, gulags, and a lot of dead bodies.
What is someone like this doing in America?
But think about that. Right there in the bowels of the government–a government whose stated duty and function is to uphold the Constitution–lurked a character who wants to force people to say things they don’t believe, or else. Or else what? Well, the Cancel Culture at the very least: destroy you and your business. Or they could just stick to the old-fashioned way and kill you.
This was in our government. And he was not alone.
Our federal government needs a thorough cleansing; but who has hands clean enough to do it?
