    In some offensive fashion developments, one brand tried to make swastikas trendy, reports Mic. KA Designs attempted to put into production a collection of T-shirts and sweatshirts with the Nazi symbol on the chest. The white cotton garments were screen printed in rainbow colors with swastikas paired with words such as “zen,” “love,” and “peace.” KA Designs announced “the swastika is coming back […] introducing: the new swastika.” The brand also released a video on Facebook explaining why they were trying to “take back the swastika.” The video explained, “This is a swastika. It’s 5,000 years old. It’s a symbol...

  • Meet the Raging Grannies, Portland's Not-So-Secret Warriors for Civility

    The Christian Science Monitor ^ | August 16, 2017 | Patrik Jonsson
    The model of peaceful protest that's largely held since the civil rights era is being challenged, with roiling violence in American cities from Charlottesville, Va., to Portland, Ore. The Grannies, who use humor to defuse tense situations, are among those trying to calm the streets. PORTLAND, ORE.—Amid the hubbub of Portland’s waterfront “Saturday Market,” song suddenly erupts from what looks like a Mayberry sewing circle, their raised fists punctuating the chorus: “It is a time to care, not to kill....” The singers’ dresses and hats are mismatched, their song a tad out of tune, but they are, Portlanders say, ever...

  • Liberal City Police Departments Need Updated Training in Classic "Look the Other Way" Maneuver

    Vanity | August 15, 2017 | self
    This has historically been called "looking the other way", and is a classic police maneuver. It was pioneered in Al Capone's day in Chicago, when police actually were on the gangster's payroll for performing this action. Police should receive updated training in the "looking the other way" maneuver. This should include include running to the armory to check in their guns and removing their uniform shirts and hats so they are not identifiable as police. Removal of uniforms is necessary because when citizens see uniformed police they have been conditioned to believe they actually have protection. This could lead to...

    Just a little over a year ago, an employee at Yale smashed a stained glass window at the school because he was angry over the image of African Americans carrying cotton. We covered it in this post: Yale employee smashes allegedly racist stained-glass window, Yale won’t press charges. Not only did Yale not press charges, they rehired the employee with much fanfare. Now another piece of campus art has been altered for the sake of political correctness. ***snip***...you may have noticed a stone carving by the York Street entrance to Sterling Memorial Library that depict a hostile encounter: a Puritan...

    When Students for Free Thought, a group at Lawrence University, attempted to screen the documentary Can We Take a Joke? on their campus late in the Spring, they discovered that their classmates were not a particularly light-hearted , free thinking bunch. "Can We Take a Joke? includes footage of incidents where outraged college students shouted down speakers they disagree with," the film's director, Ted Balaker noted in a column distributed by the James C. Martin Center for Academic Renewal. "Ironically, that's pretty much what happened at the Lawrence screening. Some students shouted at the screen, then a dispute erupted; one...

    [snip] The theory was described to us in a series of private chats with high-ranking officials: The generals — White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis — speak frequently, see the world similarly and privately express a sense of duty to help steer Trump. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, is an ally. The New Yorkers, including economic adviser Gary Cohn and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell (with 25 years of foreign-policy experience), have subsumed some of their personal views to blunt Trump's worst...

    Star Tribune ^ | July 24, 2017 | Erin Adler
    At least two orange street signs reading "Warning: Twin Cities police easily startled" were seen in the Twin Cities Sunday. Joe Morino brought an incredulous friend to see the orange street sign he just spotted in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis. The official-looking metal sign read: “WARNING: TWIN CITIES POLICE EASILY STARTLED.” It featured a graphic silhouette of a police officer, a gun in each raised hand, shooting in both directions. “There’s a side of truth to the sign,” Morino said after snapping a picture of it. “That tells you there is something wrong with the system.” The sign, which...

    Thanks to a little-noticed auction sale, a South Bay couple are the proud owners of one of the most exclusive streets in San Francisco — and they’re looking for ways to make their purchase pay. Tina Lam and Michael Cheng snatched up Presidio Terrace — the block-long, private oval street lined by 35 megamillion-dollar mansions — for $90,000 and change in a city-run auction stemming from an unpaid tax bill. They outlasted several other bidders.

    President Donald Trump took time out of his busy schedule to greet a wedding party at his New Jersey golf club on the first day of his 17-day vacation. Trump hopped out of his golf cart to say hello and schmooze attendees of a wedding that was hosted at his National Golf Club in Bedminster on Saturday. The president sported his iconic Make America Great Again cap as he ambled over to the group and asked some of the women where the bride was. Trump was seemingly in a good mood on the first day of his 17-day golf vacation,...
