By way of Pirate’s Cove comes this from Irons In The Fire:
This kind of crap is what happens when a group has no actual problems to deal with, so they have to create something.
Students at a Virginia law school are asking the administration to remove 'controversial' figures George Washington and Robert E. Lee from their graduation diplomas.That seems problematic considering the Virginia law school in question is at Washington and Lee University.
This is something I have noticed for a considerable number of years: Most of the problems we’ve struggled against have been solved, or at least minimized. With very few “Big Things” needing to be dealt with, the Social Justice Warriors have to find something to justify their continued existence. If that means taking small matters and blowing them way out of proportion, then they’ll do just that. Examples abound. Otherwise how do you explain:
Transgendered bathroom/locker room access?I could go on because there is so many examples of this nonsense. The whole thing is silly, wastes time and money, and lets people who think they have all the answers feel better about themselves briefly before being offended by something new.
Math being redefined as racist?
Preaching the Gospel being defined as hate speech?
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. being called an “oreo”?
All this “pronoun” nonsense using made up words no one can pronounce?
Using the wrong “pronoun” being either a firing offense or a criminal act?
The idea that there are eleventy-eleven genders even though biology only recognizes two?
All the silliness about “cultural appropriation” being bad when all successful and thriving cultures have appropriated all kinds of things from other cultures?
Demanding “reparations” for slavery committed by no one alive for almost 100 years and making claims that it didn’t even exist until America created it in the 1600’s?
Western Civilization has never created anything good…except everything being used by the SJWs including things like modern medicine, smart phones, automobiles, denims, TVs, iPods/MP3 players, modern philosophy, computers, the Internet, the U.S. Constitution, and an endless list of other concepts and items?
The idea that arresting underage shoplifters stealing alcohol from a local bakery is somehow racist?
Gee, the barking moonbats can’t even leave Mr. Rogers out of their delusional hatred of Donald Trump.
That’s sad. They really need to get some help.
From the Weekend Pundit archives:
“I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.” - Thomas SowellThat's because the folks who believe it think they know how to spend your hard-earned money better than you do. They are wrong, of course.
If for some reason you feel the need to visit San Francisco you might want to consider reading this item from Legal Insurrection first.
As distasteful as it may be to discuss, complaints to SF 311 about feces on city streets increased again in 2018, including a surprising surge in Glen Park.I have only two words to add to this: Poop map.
The site also notes that so far for 2019, the count jumped to more than 25,000 calls, up seven percent compared to the same time in 2018.
And that’s the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where it’s raining very hard, the lake was showing big white caps, and where I don’t have to go to work tomorrow because I’m on vacation.
