    Full title: Family say they have been forced to close their cafe after complaints over the Union Jack flags they stuck in their fry-ups A family cafe is being forced to close down after the owners were repeatedly abused and called 'racist' - all because they put Union Jack and England flags in their food. Tiny toothpicks with the flags have been inserted in fry up's since Cafe 164 opened in Hornchurch, east London, in 2016. But Carol Brown and daughter Candy Merrett faced a wave of abuse - mainly from people who had never eaten there, recently. ... On...
  • Jeff Deist on PC and the State-Linguistic Complex

    As the events of recent weeks demonstrate beyond doubt, political correctness is very real, deeply authoritarian, and wedded at the hip to progressive government. PC is not about respect or inclusivity, but rather a naked attempt to consciously manipulate language in service of progressive ends. Worst of all, PC creates an atmosphere in which we mostly censor ourselves. When libertarians like Daniel McAdams and Scott Horton find themselves de-platformed by twitter, it's time to see the "state-linguistic complex" for what it really is. Jeff Deist addresses the Federalist Society of Montgomery, Alabama, to make sense of it all.

    A homeless transgender woman, who strangled to death a man with whom she had a decade-long friendship after being invited to live in his Portland, Ore., apartment, was sentenced Thursday to 18 years in prison. Paris McConville, 35, pleaded guilty to one count each of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault in the August 2017 death of Ryan Thompson, 35, FOX12 Oregon reported. “In the end, he lost his life because he trusted the wrong person," Thompson’s sister, Cecily Thompson-Thiel, said in court. McConville walked into a local police station 17 hours after killing her friend and confessed, the Oregonian...

    Last week, US Defense Watch reported on the continuing social engineering destruction derby that is laying waste to what is left of the fighting spirit, warrior culture and combat power of the US military. In Six Months’ Worth of PC, Diversity and Leftist Destruction in the US Military, Part I, we discussed several events and policies that occurred or were implemented from June to August 2018. Part II continues with a myriad of examples concerning the leftist social engineering that marches on; without anyone, including Mad Dog Mattis, lifting a finger to stop it. What follows should alarm any American....

    It sure as heck ain’t your grandfather’s military anymore; nor is it your father’s or your uncle’s. It’s not even your older brother’s military anymore. Whose military is it now – Kirsten Gillibrand’s, the LGBT mafia, soccer moms, Obama-worshipping fools, cultural Marxists and walking, talking, clueless cannon fodder. Our military is focused on just about everything except preparing for war and for war against enemies who are going to be bringing navies, armies and air forces to the fight; enemies like the Chinese, the North Koreans and the Russkies; enemies who are not insurgents in the Middle East. The Chinese...

    ATLANTA -- Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb apologized Sunday for a series of offensive tweets he sent as a teenager, calling them "some stupid stuff.'' The 25-year-old Newcomb spoke less than an hour after he nearly pitched a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The tweets were sent in 2011 and 2012, when Newcomb was a senior in high school. One tweet included a racial epithet that was part of a rap lyric, and several others contained gay slurs. "I just wanted to apologize for any insensitive material,'' Newcomb said. "It was a long time ago, six or seven years...

    Gov. Phil Murphy accused a pair of New Jersey radio hosts of spreading hate speech and issued sharp condemnation of their remarks Wednesday after the two repeatedly referred to New Jersey's Sikh attorney general as "turban man." The governor accused the hosts of 101.5 FM's "The Dennis & Judi Show" of "making "abhorrent and xenophobic" remarks toward Gurbir Grewal. Grewal, the nation's first Sikh attorney general, was referred to as "turban man" and "the guy with the turban" as the hosts discussed his recent move to tell municipal prosecutors not to pursue charges for marijuana arrests.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the small lobby at the entrance of the home clubhouse at Nationals Park, Josh Hader, still in his All-Star Game uniform, sat in a puffy chair, his head tilted down, his eyes fixed on his phone’s screen, his thumbs the only thing moving. They swiped up, left thumb then right thumb, left then right, left then right, for a minute, then two, then three, before a security guard closed the door and cocooned Hader from the throng waiting outside to ask if he was a racist, sexist, bigoted homophobe. Outside the clubhouse, about 15 feet away,...

    “The World Needs More Cowboys.” This proposed new slogan for the University of Wyoming was meant to be “inclusive, by design,” according to the marketing campaign flier that was obtained by The Chronicle of Higher Education. “This is not a campaign to reinforce regressive stereotypes of Cowboys from the pop-cultural past,” the flier states. “This is a campaign to rewrite them.” The flier goes on to explain how this campaign is an opportunity to “celebrate people in every corner” because “Cowboys come in every sex, shape, color and creed” at the University of Wyoming.

    Papa John’s founder John Schnatter resigned as the company’s chairman on Wednesday night after fallout over his use of the n-word during a conference call. ... Schnatter used the n-word on a conference call in May.

    Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigned as company chairman late Wednesday after it was reported that he used the N-word during a conference call in May. The company said in a statement that it will appoint a new chairman in the coming weeks. The news comes the same day Schnatter faced intense backlash for using the racial slur while taking part in an exercise on handling public relations. Forbes first reported on the comments Wednesday, stating that Schnatter used the N-word after being asked how he would distance himself from racist groups. The question came in response to blowback Schnatter...

    The Mac used to have numerous advantages over the PC, but with Windows 10 the PC has now closed the gap. These days buying a PC gives you many more options compared to the Mac, which continues to stagnate. Business Insider's senior tech correspondent, Steve Kovach, switched his Mac for a PC to see what Windows 10 really has to offer. Following is a transcript of the video. Steve Kovach: I've been a Mac user for over 15 years. I hated PCs. They came loaded with a bunch of software that slowed down my machine, and they caught viruses way...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul tweeted out a racist and anti-Semitic cartoon Monday before swiftly deleting it amid a backlash on social media. The cartoon featured a range of minorities depicted in stereotypical terms—including a Jewish man with a hooked nose, a black man with large lips as well as portrayals of Asians and Latinos. The four men are shown punching up at an Uncle Sam figure together with a speech bubble that reads, “Cultural Marxism!” Together, with the cartoon, Paul wrote: “Are you stunned by what has become of American culture? Well, it’s not an accident. You’ve probably...

    A tiny bunch of left-wing loons with no lives, shrivelled penises, and the collective IQ of a pickled herring is trying to ban a screening of the classic 60s movie Zulu at an armed forces fund-raising event in Kent. Before I go on can I absolutely stress that while it has been widely reported – eg here and here – this is NOT a news story? The only reason I am writing about it is because it’s an excuse to say what a marvellous film Zulu is: one of those character-building experiences that every boy should have on his route...

    The cultural revolution is just getting started in medicine. And when it's done, medicine will consist entirely of venting about "white men" as the real "disease". What began with tearing down Confederate statues has now moved on to taking down portraits of people who are not even being accused of racism. They're just... white men. Nabel said no one on staff has objected to taking down portraits of past department heads, which include Dr. Harvey Cushing, the "father of neurosurgery," who studied at Harvard and Yale and became surgeon-in-chief at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in 1913. Cushing operated on hundreds...

    MARSHALL, Mich. — A high school principal in southern Michigan has apologized to two graduates whom he had chastised for wearing their Marine dress uniforms during commencement. Marshall High School Principal Scott Hutchins apologized Monday for his comments regarding the two students' decision not to wear their caps and gowns on June 3, the Battle Creek Enquirer reported. School officials had told the two students ahead of commencement that exceptions wouldn't be made to a policy requiring graduates to wear a cap and gown, Superintendent Randy Davis said. Hutchins pulled aside Pfc. Willie Couch and Pfc. Samuel Hackworth at the...

    The internet is in uproar (again). Developer DICE’s decision to include a woman on the cover art for this year’s Battlefield offering has, for some reason, antagonised the most vocal parts of the gaming internet. Within minutes of DICE revealing its new game, detractors on reddit, Twitter and various online gaming forums were spouting their vitriol, furious that DICE had sacrificed authenticity in favour of ‘political correctness’. Here’s the thing, though: it hasn’t. Women have always played a vital role in the World’s wars, and to ignore that is to be willfully ignorant. From soldiers enlisted in active duty to...

    The police captain who told sheriff's deputies to 'stage' and form a perimeter outside Stoneman Douglas High School as students and teachers were shot inside on February 14 is being replaced.

She will be removed from her position, which will instead be taken up by an officer of a higher rank, Fox News reported on Thursday. The move to replace Jordan with a major was made as part of the city's re-evaluation of its contract with the...

    Comedians are becoming increasingly reluctant to perform on college campuses due to a sensitive culture of political correctness, and college bookers don't seem to mind. According to VICE News report published last week, several successful comedians, including Judy Gold, Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock, now avoid going to college campuses because their jokes can be deemed offensive. “Why is it that everyone has to adjust to everyone else? Don’t hire me if you don’t want to hear what I have to say,” Gold told the publication. When asked to explain how she would react if her jokes offended an audience...
