    The College Fix ^ | August 3, 2018 | Michael Jones Auburn University
    Critic calls research ‘postmodern word salad’ University of Toronto scholar Stephanie Springgay’s newly published research alleges that there is more to felt, the material, than typically perceived. In her paper, “‘How to Write as Felt’: Touching Transmaterialities and More-Than-Human Intimacies,” published online in late July by Studies in Philosophy and Education, Springgay suggests that felt, a “dense material of permanently interlocking fibers,” can be linked to racism and capitalism. “[T]his paper addresses ‘the problem of education’ that is predicated on cis-heteronormative White supremacist settler colonial logics that assume knowledge enters from an outside, that is predicated on progress, and that...
  • Elizabeth Warren: Democrats can be ‘party of white working class and Black Lives Matter’

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | August 3, 2018 | Lauren Gambino and Ben Jacobs in New Orleans, Louisiana
    Kamala Harris attacked critics of “identity politics”. Elizabeth Warren insisted that Democrats could be both the “party of the white working class and the party of Black Lives Matter” while calling the American criminal justice system “racist”. And Cory Booker said it was time “to get folk woke”. At the Netroots Nation conference in New Orleans on Friday, leading Democratic presidential hopefuls embraced the concept of intersectionality, viewing any conflict between economic populism and racial and social justice as a false choice. “I have a problem with that phrase, ‘identity politics,’” said Kamala Harris, the junior Democratic senator from California,...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reportedly asked President Trump to nominate Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick this week; urging the Commander-in-Chief to put forward Merrick Garland to replace outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy. According to the Hill, Schumer made the request in private; asking Trump to advance Garland after his nomination process stalled in 2016. “A person familiar with the conversation said on Thursday that Schumer told Trump in a phone call that lasted less than five minutes on Tuesday that the move would help unify the country,” writes the Hill. The Democratic leader penned an editorial in the New York...

    As 28-year-old Ocasio-Cortez begins her meteoric rise in politics – observers have pointed out that she has an asteroid named after her, called 23238 Ocasio-Cortez. "It's true! Science was my first passion," she tweeted on June 12, adding that the asteroid was named in honour of longevity experiments she conducted out of Mt. Sinai Health System in New York. "My research won 2nd place globally in Microbiology at @intel ISEF," she said in the tweet, referring to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. "At [Boston University] I started as science major, changed to Econ ???? #nerdalert" The asteroid in...

    A Sacramento, Calif., area home is up for sale, but it comes with a catch. The homeowner has a political preference in mind for the next owner of her house, which has been in her family for decades. "She entertained people from all walks of life," said the homeowner who asked we not use her name for fear of retaliation. "I told her [the realtor] that I didn't want her to sell it to a Trump supporter," said the woman. She wants a sale contingent upon how someone votes, but is that legal?

    FULL TITLE: Women's March ditches pink 'p***yhats' - because they're exclusionary and racist against brown genitals No, we're not making this up. There are plenty of good reasons not to wear a pink pussyhat. No one really needs a list of them, because "they look utterly ridiculous" should suffice. People who wear them look like complete morons, they aren't taken seriously, and that undermines their cause. Even if I were to suspend disbelief and buy into the idea that the "Women's March" was honestly about meaningful women's issues - and not just a catch-all for a collection of socialist Cause...

    California NAACP Denounces ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ as ‘Racist,’ ‘Anti-Black People’ BY: Alex Griswold November 8, 2017 3:11 pm The California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is calling on lawmakers to strip "The Star-Spangled Banner" of its status as the national anthem. The state civil rights organization has been circulating two petitions in the California State Legislature, one that calls the song "one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon," and another that praises former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the anthem, the Sacramento Bee reported. "This song is...

    The rage is still strong in some Trump opponents who plan to band together to "scream helplessly at the sky" on the one year anniversary of the 2016 election. Facebook events around the country invite people to gather together and let out a "primal scream for the current state of our democracy" on Nov. 8. The idea came from Boston, where people will gather in America's oldest park, the Boston Common, to scream. Other liberal cities like New York, Austin and Philadelphia picked up the idea.

    NEW YORK — Fifteen states and the District of Columbia sued Wednesday to block President Donald Trump's plan to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation — an act Washington state's attorney general called part of a "dark time for our country." The lawsuit filed in federal court in Brooklyn asked a judge to conclude that the president's action involving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, is unconstitutional.

    Snowflakes. Deporables. Libtards. You've heard them all. Nonsensical as they are instantly understandable, these new-school insults are a testament to how polarized we are as a country, as scary as it is kind of funny. We're caricatures of ourselves, which is one of the many brilliant takeaways from American Horror Story: Cult. This season begins on election night, when Ally (Sarah Paulson) becomes completely undone once Trump wins. She's an archetypical left-winger: a married lesbian with a child, an eco-friendly Prius and oddly specific phobias that'll make her lose control when she's triggered. Ally becomes hysterical once the results come...

    A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office. Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner.

    Next Thursday, Washington sculptor James Kelsey will unveil Piss Trump, a giant photography piece depicting Donald Trump naked, crucified and suspended in a tank of piss. Kelsey says it's not totally his intention for Piss Trump to be inflammatory. "I want the unveiling to be a catharsis for us," he says. "Not another reason to express anger." Piss Trump resembles Andres Serrano's 1987 Piss Christ, a photo of a ghostly crucifix tinted yellow by the dark urine in which its submerged. The controversy over Piss Christ was exacerbated when the work won an award that was partly funded by the...

    When Seattle police officers write use of force reports they no longer call a suspect a suspect. “Community member” is the new term. Several officers say the term is offensive, explaining their work with violent suspects. Sources point to the suspect who shot three officers last month after a downtown Seattle armed robbery. When officers involved in that incident were writing their use of force reports they were required to refer to the shooter, Damarius Butts, as a “community member,” not a suspect, police sources said. Police fatally shot Butts after they said he shot the officers. “I think this...

A mob will always justify its violence as righteous.We’re getting closer to the inevitable moment when someone is literally murdered on an American campus because a right-winger tried to speak.

    Many less than delectable looking bare bottoms were aimed at the Trump towers in recent days. In the White House briefing room, the media tried to follow suit and got a lesson in how Trump trumps haters. For a full week, the press stories -- funny how they all seem alike -- charged that the White House was a scene of “turmoil and chaos.” Once again, they prematurely pronounced Trump dead. Rasmussen told another story altogether. Voters indicated by 45% that we were heading in the right direction, “a higher level of optimism than found during any week of the...

    Trump currently dismisses climate change as a hoax invented by China, though he has quietly sought to shield real estate investments in Ireland from its effects. But at the Republican presidential contender’s Palm Beach estate and the other properties that bear his name in south Florida, the water is already creeping up bridges and advancing on access roads, lawns and beaches because of sea-level rise, according to a risk analysis prepared for the Guardian. In 30 years, the grounds of Mar-a-Lago could be under at least a foot of water for 210 days a year because of tidal flooding along...

    From Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter, the left has been reborn. Can it find a way to harness the populist uprising that brought Trump to power? In late October 2011, I was volunteering at the Occupy Wall Street library in lower Manhattan. Tucked into a corner of Zuccotti Park, the library was staffed mainly by anarchists of an exceedingly orderly bent. If society were suddenly freed from coercive institutions like libraries, these people would gladly spend the morning sorting donated books by Dewey decimal number—as they were doing in the mild fall weather. I was there for only...

    Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., indicated Thursday that he is exploring all possible procedures at his disposal to delay certification of the Electoral College results during a joint session of Congress on Friday. Perlmutter hasn't committed to putting up a roadblock to finalizing the results, but his office confirmed that he is "reviewing certain laws and the U.S. Constitution as it pertains to efforts to undermine our electoral process." The rules allow lawmakers to protest the counting of Electoral College votes, but because the votes are counted during a joint session of Congress, a senator would also have to protest the...
