Whatever became of the idea, when in Rome?  Bravo Israeli Security. Well Done!

Must thank and hat tip LyndonB here at bmews for the link.

Gotta hand it to the Israelis for sure.  They don’t take any backtalk or crap from foreign self appointed “activists”. 
Well, not yet anyway.

Here’s how they handled one such fat faced inflated ego, who says he was on, “A fact finding mission”.


Scots activist held, strip-searched and deported by Israel

By Kirsteen Paterso, The National

A SCOTTISH activist who travelled to Israel on a parliamentary fact-finding mission has been banned from the country for 10 years over his campaign for Palestinian rights.

Convener of the SNP Friends of Palestine group formed earlier this year, Andy Murray arrived at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv on Monday.

He was detained at passport control, interrogated, strip-searched and swabbed for explosives before being taken to a cell and later deported back to the UK.

Murray, a full-time dad from Glasgow, says Israeli security services expected his arrival and held a file on him, questioning him about friends and family and accusing him of being an “enemy of Israel”.

A full time dad?  Almost missed that on first read.  Ah huh. So then ,,,, he’s unemployed? Maybe on benefits too?
Just asking is all cos it’s curious. So where’s he get the time for all this activism what with kiddies and him being full time.

Now back in Scotland, he told The National he was denied information and access to help from the British Embassy and told: “You have no rights in this country.”

The 44-year-old said: “I felt like the dirt on someone’s shoe. I have never felt that way in my life.

“I feel awful for thinking it, but at the time I just thought thank god they are not treating me like a Palestinian. I don’t know if I could have handled it.”

Murray was part of a group set to visit Palestine as part of a fact-finding trip and has declined to identify other individuals or the non-governmental organisation involved to protect their identities.

Detained on Monday, he was deported to Luton before having to pay for coach travel back to social worker wife Tracey, eight-year-old son Michael and daughter Grace, four.

He said: “I wasn’t emotional until I saw my two kids and realised how much I had missed them.

“Being friends with Palestine doesn’t mean we are an enemy of Israel – far from it. It’s just that Palestine needs all the friends it can get.”

Murray believes his detention was sparked by a meeting at the SNP conference when “someone from the Israeli Embassy” took his business card.

He said: “I made it as far as passport control. They expected me.

“From what I can gather, they had a file on me. I was interrogated very deeply and very personally. They were asking about people I know.

“They had a picture of me taken at a demo in Glasgow last week and a picture of me at SNP conference.

“They mocked the SNP, compared us to the Palestinians, mocked the fact that we lost the referendum, saying ‘what you going to do, rise up and fight the occupiers?’ It was just unbelievable.”

Oh dear, oh dear me. They “mocked” you dear Andy?  Well. Of all the nerve. Why ... you’d think those damn Jews were in their own country.
Hey wait.  They are.  But still ... they also mocked the SNP too?
Tell ya what you fat faced F***.

Find yourself a good Jewish lawyer and cry on his shoulder and then sue the state of Israel.  HA! Now that’s a gas.

Murray claims he and his clothing and belongings were swabbed for explosives residue twice and that Israeli authorities broke into his locked mobile phone and laptop.

He said officers “sneered” at him and made comments in Hebrew, adding: “I don’t know if I was ever arrested. They had not told me what was happening. They gave me no information.

“When I asked for the embassy, it was a case of ‘look out the window, do you see Big Ben? You are not in Britain now’.

“At that point I realised what I was up against.”

Murray was initially set to be deported on Friday and credits his early release to an intervention by Carol Monaghan MP, who contacted British Embassy staff after Murray got a message to his wife.

He said: “This has redoubled my commitment and my determination to fight for a just settlement for Palestine. It’s solidified every fibre in me that we must be doing something right.

“I’m going to wear my ban as a badge of honour.”

The Israeli Embassy did not respond to a request for comment yesterday.

However, Monaghan said: “This incident raises grave concerns about the relationship between the UK and Israel.

“It seems incredible that a country with which the UK enjoys good relations should treat a UK citizen in such a way. There were no reasonable grounds for his detention and eventual deportation.

SOURCE

Jews in Israel will do that you know. They’re known to speak Hebrew from time to time. So he wasn’t lying in saying they were speaking Hebrew.
The nerve of them. 
Now think about it.  If Israel wants to make more friends ....  They should give up all that expensive security stuff, and greet visitors with flowers instead of guns, just assume everybody loves them and treat all ppl that way.
They may end up with a reduction in the Jewish population, but those left standing might have all sorts of good friends.
Like blubber face Mr. Murray here.

SPACE CADETS …. NOT OF THIS WORLD

I ask you. Can they possibly get any dumber or more politically correct?

Is this what parents and some students are paying for and being educated to?

Good grief.  These are supposed to be …… I don’t know anymore.  Smart people?
They passed rigid tests I would think. 
I just plain do not understand how these young folks can buy into this crap. Can’t they think?  How in the world is a hat offensive or racist? 

And what’s with ableist ?  and transphobic ?

I bet ya if released today, they’d picket and demand closing of theaters showing
The Three Amigos. 

I remember going all the way back to the late 60’s when the Frito people were made to stop advertising Frito Bandito chips.  Does anyone else recall those commercials?

The Mexican embassy or someone or some ppl thought it denigrated Mexicans and made it look like all were bandits. In other words, they claimed the commercials were stereotyping Mexicans.  I guess you might be able to make a case for that although I don’t think the company had that in mind.

I also remember and I hope I spell it right, a radio commercial for Lufthansa in which a voice over encouraging people to visit and spend their holiday in London, ended with the tag,
Fly Lufthansa to London.  Our pilots know the skies of London.
Brit embassy didn’t take to that. It was removed of course but I still get a giggle remembering.

But this story is altogether on another planet.
These kids are not of our world.  And if they are of our world, oh boy. Are we ever in trouble.

Take a look at this.

University student union bans free Tex-Mex sombreros for being ‘racist’

The Telegraph

University of East Anglia student union officials orders Tex-Mex restaurant to stop handing out free sombreros to students
A university’s students union has banned students from getting free sombreros claiming they are “racist”.

Students were being given free sombreros by a local Tex-Mex restaurant in a bid to drum up business with a smile, before uni chiefs ordered them to stop - because it violates strict cultural appropriation rules.

The University of East Anglia student union officials even took the big floppy hats from students at the Freshers’ Fair, because non-Mexicans wearing the traditional item of headwear could be seen as offensive, according to a new initiative.

• Students’ union backs excluding white people from ‘anti-racism’ events
The Union has stated that the handing out of sombreros breached a key advertising policy which was sent to all stallholders before the event, prohibiting any use of stereotypical imagery in advertising.

It read: “Discriminatory or stereotypical language or imagery aimed towards to any group or individual based on characteristics will not be permitted as part of our advertising.”

The policy specifies 15 types of discrimination, some of which include colour, ethnic origin, and nationality.

The sombreros were seen as racist and a form of cultural appropriation, despite the fact that the restaurant’s website says it offers a “Tex-Mex experience.”

When Pedros were asked to stop handing out the sombreros they were amicable in doing so, although some students were less impressed.
Speaking to student newspaper The Tab, one first year who asked not to be named, said: “It’s ridiculous - it’s a comedy hat, not some sort of sacred religious dress.
“Who is going to get offended? Speedy Gonzales?”

Rafel Spilman added: “What utter b*****ks.”

But the Union defended their madcap stance on the floppy hat.

Campaigns and Democracy officer Chris Jarvis said: “We know that when it comes to cultural appropriation the issues can sometimes be difficult to understand and many don’t realise that they may be about to cause offence or break a policy.

“So we’re discussing internally how we can improve our briefing to both external organisations and our own members so that people aren’t caught out at the last minute.”

He added: “At the SU we want all members feel safe and accepted, so at all events we try to ensure that there is no behaviour, language or imagery which could be considered racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or ableist.”

The offending sombreros were being handed out at the University of East Anglia freshers’ fair in Norwich last week.
Pedros Tex-Mex Cantina is an independent, family-owned restaurant that opened in 1991 in Norwich.

source, the telegraph

starts with B, has five letters and ends in ks?  utter b*****ks.
Is that bullocks?  The paper couldn’t print out that word?

the future of islam at the heart of europe looking up. not so good for europe though.

It’s one thing entirely if the Germans are crazy enough to decide to F*** their own damn country.
But yet again .... only this time without intention I hope, they are about to screw all of Europe. While I know there are also many Christians among them, the majority are not.  The host country will eventually disappear. Europeans need to break up the EU and citizens should be arming themselves.
That’s what I believe based on what I heard a short while ago.
In fact I didn’t believe what I heard and so went looking to verify.

Yup .... 

Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland and by the way .... while we are at it, a fond memory or two even for the French,

and a sad goodbye to EUROPE too.

Why?
Because that mad menopausal Frau Merkel is ... well here. Read it for yourself and while you do, keep in mind Germany is at the very heart of Europe and those countries that make up the EU no longer need passports to travel among member countries. I can not believe he’d say this without her approval.


Migrant crisis: Germany ‘can take 500,000 asylum seekers a year’

Germany can cope with at least 500,000 asylum seekers a year for several years, Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel has said.

Germany expects more than 800,000 asylum-seekers in 2015 alone - four times the 2014 figure.

Mr Gabriel reiterated that other EU states should share the burden.

The UN’s refugee agency, UNHCR, says a record 7,000 Syrian migrants arrived in Macedonia alone on Monday and 30,000 were on Greek islands.

The migrants, mainly Syrians, are engaged in a long trek which takes them from Turkey, across the sea to Greece, through Macedonia and Serbia, and then to Hungary from where they aim to reach Austria and Germany.

The migrant influx has unsettled European governments and prompted diverse responses. Hungary’s conservative leadership is building a border fence to try to keep them out, but German politicians have expressed pride in crowds who welcomed new arrivals.

A Greek minister said on Monday that the island of Lesbos, which sits off the Turkish coast, was “on the verge of an explosion” due to a build-up of 20,000 migrants.

The government and UNHCR have brought in extra staff and ships to process them.

Despite the huge influx expected into Germany this year, Mr Gabriel said it was prepared for more in the longer term.

“I believe we could certainly deal with something in the order of a half a million for several years,” he said in an interview with Germany’s public ZDF television.

But he also urged other members of the EU to play their part.

The EU is due to unveil proposals on Wednesday to distribute 160,000 refugees among member states on a mandatory basis.

The crisis has divided the 28-nation European Union, especially the issue of obligatory quotas.

Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Romania, are opposed. Poland’s President Andrzej Duda reiterated his country’s position on Wednesday.

“In Europe the talk is all the time about fighting the results, and little on how to liquidate the reasons. Europe is in a kind of a closed circle,” he said.

Use Your Brain

The Law Of Intended Consequences


Stupid Idea:

“Excuse me while I whip this out ...”

RCMP Storms Beach After iPhone Case of Mistaken Identity

GRAND BEACH, Man. — A Manitoba man has turned his cellphone case over to police after it caused panic on a crowded public beach.

The black case, shaped like a handgun, was tucked in the waistband of the man’s shorts on Sunday while he was at Grand Beach north of Winnipeg.

RCMP were called and responded with real rifles and Tasers. They found the man sitting on the beach with family members, including children, and quickly determined he was only armed with an iPhone.

Sgt. Bert Paquet says the 34-year-old man was questioned and voluntarily gave officers the case for disposal. He will not face charges.  [ Drew: Open carry in Canada is illegal, eh? ]

“While the individual knew this item to be a fake gun, our officers did not,” said Paquet.

“Some people do not realize the risks associated with openly carrying or displaying these replicas in a public space. Anyone who owns this type or similar devices should safely dispose of them immediately.”

Moar? Sure, why not ...

Last week, Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison of the New York Police Department posted a message on Twitter warning consumers against buying the case.

The New Jersey State Police also recommended that people not buy the case.

“This cell phone case is a terrible idea,” the department said in a Facebook posting. “Officers do not have the luxury of time when making split-second decisions while interacting with the public.”

The prosecutor’s office in Ocean County, N.J., also commented on Facebook.

“Please folks — this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea,” the posting read.
...
Michael J. Bouchard, a Michigan sheriff, said last week there was too much potential for dangerous misunderstanding if a student walked into a school or a person walked into a bank with one of the cases.

“It looks like literally you have a weapon sticking out of your back pocket,” he said in an interview with WXYZ-TV in Detroit. “We are not a big fan of it on any level.”
...
Reviews for the cases on Amazon suggest that consumers see the same safety hazard as law enforcement officials — and are even more frank in their derision.

“Wonder if the imbeciles who buy this case will live long enough to enjoy it,” wrote an Amazon user under a listing for one of the cases. “Amazon should remove it from their site.”

“What moron came up with this idea?” wrote another reviewer. “We live in a society where every time there is an incident involving police, people immediately whip out their cell phones to record it.

“Can you imagine the reaction of police in the middle of a tense situation seeing someone pull this device out?”

It doesn’t take more than a millisecond of thought to realize what a monumentally stupid idea this accessory is. Whoever adds it to their shopping cart might as well toss in a Darwin Award too.

Man oh man. Some people are either really really stupid, or just plain confrontational. This one is way beyond passive / aggressive. It’s looking to cause a problem.

Use your brain people. Even if you live in a thug culture environment you’re better off packing real heat than pretending to. A pretend weapon can get you in just as bad a situation as a real one, and then you have no way out.

Want a way out? Here’s what I call using your brain ...

nutty professor says, “america overreacted to 9/11, widespread panic ensued in America”

The woman is a moonbat. A loony tune.
And people seek her advice ?  Yup.

Irish-born Professor Richardson is an internationally renowned scholar of terrorism and security studies and regularly advises policy makers.

So now ya know why things are so screwed up.

I’m no expert on “the troubles”, but I don’t recall the Brits being attacked with such a staggering loss of life in one day in any city here.

Americans ‘overreacted’ to 9/11 terror attacks because they’re not as resilient as Brits, says Oxford University’s first female vice-chancellor

· Terrorism expert Professor Louise Richardson said 9/11 provoked such a response because violent extremism was a ‘new experience’ in the US

· Widespread panic ensued in US after atrocity caused almost 3,000 deaths

· First female vice-chancellor said UK is more ‘resilient’ in the face of terror

· Said combating psychological impact of terror is the best counter measure

By Eleanor Harding, Education Correspondent For The Daily Mail

Americans ‘overreacted’ to the 9/11 attacks, according to the newly appointed first female vice-chancellor of Oxford University.

Terrorism expert Professor Louise Richardson said the 2001 atrocity provoked such a response because violent extremism was a ‘new experience’ in the US.

Widespread panic ensued in America after al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger airliners and flew them into buildings, causing almost 3,000 deaths.
In contrast, British citizens have shown themselves to be more ‘resilient’ in the face of terror when dealing with violence during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, she said.

Professor Richardson, who lived and worked in the US for many years, said that combating the psychological impact of terror was the best counter measure.

She said: ‘The whole genius of terrorism is to have a greater psychological impact.

‘The reason random attacks have so much more impact is that if no-body is chosen, no-body is safe and the fear is much more widespread. I think central to any counter-terrorism campaign should be a resilient population.

‘And I have to say the British population in the course of the Troubles and violence in Northern Ireland proved really quite resilient I think – far more so than the US and the scale of the reaction and overreaction in the US to the 9/11 atrocity.

‘This was a reflection of the fact that this was a such a new experience for the US.’

Irish-born Professor Richardson is an internationally renowned scholar of terrorism and security studies and regularly advises policy makers.

Professor Richardson, who has led St Andrews for more than six years, was nominated to become the first female vice chancellor in Oxford University’s history.

just what we always needed. a kosher taliban.

Whodda thought a Jewish cult or sect, I call em a group of 18th century idiots,
would turn themselves in to the Taliban.

You’d think they would have enough sense to keep their head under the parapets, especially with the stupid looking dress they wear. I mean come on, look at this guys hat.  I’d be curious to know exactly where in Jewish scripture, it says the men have to look like damn fools.  And they do.  Just what the fuck we need in today’s world.  Like Jews don’t have enough problems to deal with, along comes a kosher Taliban.
What next?  I suppose at least they aren’t 5th century. But hell, these jerks aren’t even 20th yet.  I understand this edict is the order of a smallish group within the Hasidic sect.  I know they don’t represent anyone but themselves.  However … sorry folks.
I find them embarrassing in the extreme. 

I read this only today in the iNews, which I failed to find on line for this story. So my source became a place I never heard of before after a Google search. It adds a lot more than did the article I read. 

Just to give you some idea besides this issue, here’s something from the comments section which I saw reported on TV years before the Daily Beast article in 2012 that is quoted here.

Consistently in New York state, where Hasidim cluster, the departing party (male or female) who is going “off the derech (path),” loses both custody and visitation with their children, in order not to confuse them by living in households with two different practices. Members of the community will show up to support the spouse remaining in the community and rumors spread about the terrible behavior of the one departing.  Usually, they’re considered unstable, crazy, and if a woman, whorish.  There have been some notorious metal breakdowns and suicides among those who leave, due to the treatment from the community.
Judges in New York are elected and Hasidim are generally monolithic voting blocs, voting as directed by their Rebbes.  Consequently, judges tend to be in the pockets of the Hasidim.
Women can get away without driving in NY Hasidic communities because a. Families usually live within walking distance of the school and b.  NYC has great public transportation.
Lastly, most husbands don’t have to worry about getting into trouble for not getting to work on time because they’re transporting their children because THEY DON’T WORK.

From a 2012 Daily Beast article:

Take the overwhelmingly Hasidic Kiryas Joel, the poorest place in America. As the Times reported last year, “half of [its] residents receive food stamps, and one third receive Medicaid benefits and rely on federal vouchers to help pay their housing costs.” And boy, do they have children: The median household in Kiryas Joel has six people, and the median age is twelve. Many of its men learn Torah full-time instead of working, and the community’s low high-school graduation rate would be even lower if its religious schools had real academic standards. These kids are hardly being “socialized to the world of work.” And it’s not just Kiryas Joel: back in 1996, at the heart of “welfare reform,” a full third of Williamsburg’s Hasidim received public assistance.

And there is this.

The Israel-based leader of the sect, Yissachar Dov Rokeach, caused another upset last year when he reminded his women followers that they must shave their heads in accordance with its religious requirements, that any food prepared by a woman without a shaved head is not kosher and that they must not wear noisy shoes. If these requirements are taught in the sect’s schools, it will be interesting to see how the Ofsted Inspectors reconcile this with preparing the students “for life in modern Britain”.

London: Hasidic Jewish Sect Bars Women Driving

Rabbis of the Hasidic Jewish sect Belz in part of north London have instructed women that they must not drive as this breaches the “the traditional rules of modesty in our camp”.

image

A letter sent to the community warns that children driven to school by their mothers will be turned away.

The letter, which was signed by Belz educational leaders and endorsed by rabbis, also said women could be banned from their schools if their mothers drove them from August onwards.

It cited increasing numbers of “mothers of pupils who have started to drive” which it said had led to “great resentment among parents of pupils of our institutions”.

Stamford Hill’s residents are predominately Hasidic Jewish and only New York is believed to have a larger community of Hasidic Jews outside of Israel.

Many of London’s Jewish community are descendants of those fleeing progroms and state repression from the 19th century onwards. Arriving poor, they followed other groups of refugees in establishing communities around the docks in East London.

Like the Hugenots (French Protestants) they followed, many prospered and moved to more pleasant parts of London, especially to the north west in areas like Golders Green and Stamford Hill. The trend continues with many less religious Jews moving further to the outer suburbs and Essex, to the east of London. For the more observant, the area of NW London provided a place where the community could cohere.

Several eruvs have been set up to enable more activities, like pushing wheelchairs, to occur outside the home on the Sabbath. A number of Jewish schools, both private and part publicly funded serve the community. 

Stamford Hill is, well, hilly. It is built on part of the escarpment of the Thames’ river valley and as such is quite steep. For mothers with large families, the use of a car eases the burden of taking children to school, especially if the children’s ages mean they go to several different schools or nurseries (kindergarten) or to separate boys’ and girls’ schools. The rabbis’ order has therefore proved controversial:

Dina Brawer, UK Ambassador of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance, said that “the instinct behind such a draconian ban is one of power and control, of men over women. In this sense it is no different from the driving ban on women in Saudi Arabia. That it masquerades as a halachic imperative is shameful and disturbing.”

While many Chasidic women do not drive, this is thought to be the first formal declaration against the practice in the UK.

One local woman said that the policy “disables women. The more kids they have, the more they need to drive.” But she believed that some women would take no notice of the policy. “They say one thing, they do another,” she said.

The Belz, who originated in Ukraine in the early 18th century, are one of the most prominent Hasidic sects and re-established their headquarters in Israel after the war. When its leader’s grandson celebrated his wedding in Israel two years ago, some 25,000 guests attended.

It is not the first time the Jewish community in Stamford Hill has caused controversy. In September last year posters put up by a Jewish group for a religious parade warning women to only walk on one side of the road were removed by Hackney council after they were deemed “unacceptable”

This is a very, very, very long article with lots of background info if interested at the link.
I would recommend the comments section where there are some interesting comments.

ISIS Don’t Speak Texan

It Wasn’t A “Draw Mohammed” Contest

It Was A “Draw, Mohammed” Contest

And ISIS Lost

ISIS Claims Credit For Attack At Texas Art Show

Both gunmen instantly shot dead

A former terror suspect has been named as one of the gunmen shot dead by police after two attackers blasted an unarmed security guard in the ankle during an anti-Islam art contest in Texas on Sunday night.

Two heavily-armed men, who are believed to have been carrying explosives, were killed by police after opening fire outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Dallas, at around 7pm during a controversial event where caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad were being displayed. Followers of Islam deem that any physical depiction of the prophet - even a positive one - is blasphemous.

A senior FBI official has identified one of the men as Elton Simpson, who was previously the subject of a terror investigation, according to ABC News.

He had been convicted of lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa five years ago, but a judge ultimately ruled it could not be proved that the was heading there to join a terror group.

After his identity emerged, FBI agents and a bomb squad swarmed Simpson’s apartment in north Phoenix, Arizona and used a robot to carry out the first sweep of his home, the channel reported. The second gunman’s identity is not yet known. 

Followers of ISIS had been calling for an attack online for more than a week after learning that the competition in Garland would feature a ‘draw Muhammad’ art contest, with a prize of $10,000 for the best caricature.

After the attack, the SITE Intelligence Group reported that an Islamic State fighter claimed on Twitter that the shooting was carried out by two pro-Isis individuals.

In a series of tweets and links, a jihadist named as Abu Hussain AlBritani, which SITE said was British IS fighter Junaid Hussain, claimed that ‘2 of our brothers just opened fire’ at the Prophet Muhammad exhibition in Texas.
...
The contest was just minutes from finishing when multiple gunshots were heard.

The two suspects had pulled up in a vehicle with with explosives, before getting out and firing at a security officer, 57-year-old Bruce Joiner, who was employed by the independent school district and wearing a ‘police-style uniform’. He was later taken to hospital in a stable condition and was released on Sunday evening.

Garland Mayor Douglas Athas toldCNN that the first suspect was shot immediately while the second was wounded when he reached for his back pack, and then shot again.

Geert Wilders and Pamela Geller award the prize to the winning artist

The event featured speeches by Pamela Geller, president of the AFDI, and Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his outspoken criticism of Islam. Wilders received several standing ovations as he quoted former President Ronald Reagan and Texas founding father Sam Houston.

“Muhammad fought and terrorized people with the swords. Today, here in Garland, we fight Muhammad and his followers with the pen. And the pen, the drawings, will prove mightier than the sword,” Wilders said during his speech.

Geller said during the event that her group had spent thousands of dollars on private security guards, several of whom could be seen standing on stage. Wilders left immediately after his speech, and Geller was not seen by an Associated Press reporter inside the hall after the shooting.

After the shooting, about 75 attendees were escorted by authorities to another room in the conference center. A woman held up an American flag, and the crowd sang “God Bless America.”


And what was the winning entry? UK’s Daily Mail is too chickenshit to publish the picture. We’ve got a long way to go, and this war is only just beginning.

the really stupid do manage to thrive. and that’s one thing that’s wrong with our world

I’ve ranted and bitched about the addition of the letters “ism” to almost everything these politically correct days.  And the addition of the term “phobia” attached to various words.  It’s always, without any exception, placed there by the loony damn left and taken up by the press. Always pisses me off and we all know those terms are used as verbal cudgels against conservatives and anyone who dares question the red rats on the left.

Well, today I ran into another new one, new to me and possibly you as well.
Just what the hell is a “Transphobic?” I never saw the word before today, never heard it spoken either.
So I looked it up.
I got the following definition.

“Unreasoning hostility, aversion, etc., toward transgender people”.

I guess I should have been able to figure that out .

Seems a PC head teacher decided that children as young as three years old, should be made to sign a pledge , “Not to use transphobic language in nursery school.”

Here’s the schmuck who thought it up.

And here’s the story. 

We live in a very sickly world when ppl like her thrive.  And altho it isn’t a part of this article, how’s this for the same sort of distorted thought process.

After a spate of rapes, a killing or two and assaults, the police in one city thought they should offer young women some good advice.
They had posters made up suggesting to the ladies to not allow a friend to wander off alone. When you go out together, stay together, always have a companion.  Simple, innocent.  Innocent?  Well not quite according to the more militant sisterhood of femi Nazis.
They were highly critical of the police and said the posters were patronizing and actually anti female.

That’s our screwed up world ppl. 
Anyway .... on with the latest phobia.

Parents anger after children as young as THREE told to sign contract promising not to use ‘transphobic language’ at nursery

· Turnham Primary School demands pupils sign ‘agreement’ before starting
· Includes line asking children to ‘refrain from using...transphobic language’
· Shocked parents say asking three-year-olds to sign agreement is ‘bonkers’
· Chairman of school’s governing body apologised for any offence caused

By Eleanor Harding, Education Correspondent For The Daily Mail

Children as young as three are being asked to sign a contract pledging not to use transphobic language at school.
The pledge is contained in a ‘home-school agreement’ which all children must sign before they start at Turnham Primary School in September.

The infants must also promise to refrain from using homophobic and racist phrases and to be tolerant of people with different sexual orientations and lifestyles. Each child must print their name and provide a signature to confirm that they understand their ‘responsibilities’ while attending the school.

It is understood that teachers at the South-East London school introduced the document to help stamp out playground prejudice against transgender people and a wide range of disabilities and cultures.

But yesterday the chairman of governors said that they knew nothing about the change to the contract, which was also dismissed as ‘bonkers’ by parents who said pre-school children could not be expected to understand such complex issues.

Yesterday, one mother said: ‘My son is three yet he is meant to pledge not to use “transphobic” language.

This just fills me with dread about what sort of politically correct, tick-box bureaucracy runs this school.

‘How am I meant to explain it to my three-year-old that he must sign on the dotted line not to do something which he is not even aware exists when he can barely hold a crayon?

student union equality event tries to ban all men and white folks.

Student Union’s equality event that banned all men and whites

Wanna bet if a white group announced a meet that excluded the over protected and favored special racial groups, there’d be riots and cars and buildings burned and all sorts of mayhem.

I suppose the good news is that not all of her fellow students agreed with her.  Amazing what’s allowed to attend schools.

Photos and more are here for the rest


Pictured: Diversity officer who banned whites from her ‘anti-racism’ event at British university wiping away fake tear in front of ‘no white men’ sign

· Elected diversity officer Bahar Mustafa caught in racism and sexism row
· Facebook picture shows her faking tears in front of a ‘no white men’ sign
· She was criticised after planning diversity meeting that banned white men
· Goldsmiths University students arranged meeting to ‘diversify curriculum’

By Martin Robinson for MailOnline

This is the university equality officer at the centre of a sexism and racism row pictured in front of a ‘no white men’ sign showing their tears dripping into a cup.

A picture of Bahar Mustafa, 27, student union Welfare and Diversity Officer at Goldsmiths University in London, pretending to cry was posted online as she was being accused of discrimination.

The handmade poster also refers to a ban on ‘cis’ or cisgender men, a term used of those whose mental gender and physical sex match, which is the opposite of transgender.

The event’s online page said it was open to ‘self-defining BLACK and ETHNIC MINORITY women and non-binary people with gender identities that include “woman”.’

A notice about the meeting later appeared to show the ban had been dropped, stating: ‘Allies now welcome!’

The post was met with outrage by students of the university, one of whom described the exclusive policy as ‘patronising beyond belief’. The story was covered by student newspaper The Tab just hours after Miss Mustafa first posted the image.

Goldsmiths’ union eventually backed down after a backlash from students.

The ban on men and white students is surprising, since the organisers claim to promote ‘zero tolerance’ for ‘all forms of prejudice, discrimination and oppression’.
A senior union member told student newspaper The Tab that Miss Mustafa’s actions had made it ‘very difficult’ for male students.
In the hours after the story made national news yesterday, a friend of Miss Mustafa again posted the picture of her pretending to cry to Facebook.
He wrote: ‘When you thought the cup in the picture was big enough for white tears’.

In February, Miss Mustafa, whose Twitter biography says she is ‘queer, anti-racist feminist killjoy’, also organised a ‘BME ONLY social’ before showing the film Dear White People.

Today her friends posted supportive messages on her Facebook page and also offered her a place to stay if she needed it.

But not everyone was so supportive.
One Facebook friend, called Jessie, wrote: ‘You do not speak for me. I voted you into the position of Welfare and Diversity Officer.

‘Your passion is inspiring. But I can’t defend this. We cannot best “them” by being them. We cannot demand to be included by excluding.

‘To specifically exclude a group of people from any event is to become the oppressor. As the oppressed, we should not wish to inflict upon others that pain which we know to be harmful to us.

‘This is not the Goldsmiths I love’.

Sniper pats Moore on the head

This is brilliant! I don’t know where to start.

Let’s start at the last paragraph. If I was a hostage I WOULD want the sniper to take the shot. But, if it was Michael Moore, I wouldn’t blame the sniper for this:

So tenderfoot, I leave you with this final thought: what if you found yourself in some sort of hostage situation where you were held at knife-point by some crazed person and they were dead set on making an example of you by bleeding you out on Hollywood Blvd in front of the world, and the only way out was with the precision aimed fire of a sniper? Would you want that coward to take the shot? Because knowing how you feel about snipers such as myself and your hatred of firearms, I’d probably drop the mag, roll the bolt and go get a Jack & Coke before helping you out.

Full letter here.

Mandatory labeling for foods containing…

DNA? Yes that’s right.

A recent survey by the Oklahoma State University Department of Agricultural Economics finds that over 80 percent of Americans support “mandatory labels on foods containing DNA,”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t everything we consume, with the exception of salt and water, contain DNA?

The Oklahoma State survey result is probably an example of the intersection between scientific ignorance and political ignorance, both of which are widespread.

No! Say it isn’t so! Okay, it is so. Original article here.

“snipers are cowards who shoot ppl in the back.” michael moore is such an ahole, words fail

blubber face lefty wacko michael moore says snipers are really cowards, in reference to the new film just released.

I had forgotten about this worthless anti-American large pile of walking crap.
Now I see headlines with his very ugly fat face staring out at me, telling us that soldiers doing a job and saving their own, are cowards.
I don’t think I should print all the things I would like to make him suffer with.

He and those like him are exactly why the west is lost.  He is breathing. They are all still breathing, and doing harm.  Not because of a difference of opinions. Because he and his 5th column actively unravel the threads that hold our civilization, such as it is, together.

Moore would soil himself if he ever found himself in a combat situation.  So easy to sit in your gilded cage and remark on brave soldiers. 
Swine.

‘They are cowards not heroes’: Michael Moore slams ‘military assassins’ as Oscar-tipped movie American Sniper storms box office

Documentary maker Michael Moore said snipers ‘shoot you in the back’
Said that he was taught that snipers were ‘cowards’ and ‘not heroes’
Tweets came a day after Clint Eastwood’s film American Sniper came out
Movie starring Bradley Cooper is a biopic of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle
He was credited with most confirmed kills in American military history: 160
The film is tipped for Oscar success after receiving six nominations

By Mia De Graaf For Dailymail.com and Jennifer Newton for MailOnline

Filmmaker Michael Moore has slammed snipers as ‘cowards’ who ‘shoot you in the back’ on the same weekend Oscar-tipped movie American Sniper hit cinemas.

Clint Eastwood’s biopic of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, starring Bradley Cooper, has become a box office hit since its release last week.

Taking to Twitter in rage, Fahrenheit 9/11 director Moore seethed: ‘My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.’
