  • Crazy Glenn Beck Goes Full PC – Defends Muslims from Trump’s Temporary Travel Ban

    03/21/2017 3:35:41 PM PDT · by davikkm · 41 replies
    Poor Glenn Beck. His longtime supporters were hoping his career would survive the Trump presidency. But it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. Former conservative Beck – who endorsed Hillary Clinton for president – is now defending Muslims from President Trump’s temporary travel ban. Independent Journal Review reported: During a new interview with CBS News, Beck argues that — while he fully agrees that the world is facing a clear “Islamist threat” — the “short-sighted” way that the Trump ad

    The Coach's Team ^ | 3/21/17 | Dottie Perkins
    A major issue of concern in today’s world involves the effect liberals have when they demand everyone conform to their opinions. As a teenager, in my particular social circle there exists rather a diverse world of ideas about politics, religion and countless other “socially inappropriate” subjects of discussion. And regardless of the particular opinions offered by my peers on these issues, I often observe how willingly people change their viewpoints in order to avoid being harshly judged for holding a less than popular—that is, less than acceptable-- belief. Growing up in such an environment has become a major source of...

    The left has done a 180 since its free speech heyday of the 1960s. What used to be anything goes, and protecting the First Amendment right to say controversial things, has morphed into a treacherous map of what you can and cannot say. Universities, which were once a bastion of free speech, have now become the most hostile areas of all. If you do not agree with the left — even if you are on the left — expect to be savagely targeted. You could lose your job, your career, and reputation over just one social media post. Not to...
  • Faithless Disney, Empty Malick [Beauty & the Beast]

    National Review ^ | March 17, 2017 | Armond White
    The classic 1946 French version of Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête) featured an opening epigraph that explained the concept behind director Jean Cocteau’s live-action fairy tale: “Children believe what we tell them. They have complete faith in us.” That faith gets compromised in the new live-action musical Beauty and the Beast. Its attempt to sneakily indoctrinate children (and adults) into Disney Corporation banality recasts the nature of parent-child (and Hollywood-consumer) relations so that that bond is subsumed in state-sponsored political correctness. This new version — with its feminist Belle (Emma Watson), a crude, chauvinist-male Beast (Dan...

    Please stop acknowledging my bodily functions. "Bless you" is a phrase so reflexively spoken upon hearing a sneeze that many of us forgot or don't even know where it came from. It has obvious religious connotations but they're archaic and no longer make any sense in our modern-day world. You don't protect your friend from the devil when she coughs so please, let her sneeze in peace. Here are five reasons why "bless you" has to go. [Snip] 2. Religious political correctness.

In a Frequently Asked Questions page, officials reject the notion that the decision is steeped in political correctness. “It’s a matter of being true to our Franciscan mission and our core values of service, humility, peacemaking, contemplation, and collegiality,” they state. “This change is...

    Aided by a politically correct culture of “tolerance”, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is secretly building a “parallel” society in Sweden by infiltrating organisations and political parties, a government report has concluded. Surprisingly, the document takes aim at “political elites” for fostering a doctrine of multiculturalism and silence, which can help and facilitate the nefarious ends of anti-democratic organisation like the Brotherhood. Somewhat predictably, however, the publication of such claims in Sweden – where open criticism of liberal, multicultural ideals is rare – has caused a row, with critics labelling the report “conspiratorial” and claiming it misrepresents Islam.

    Students in Northampton used to begin Friday mornings with high fives and fist bumps from local police officers, but because of concerns from parents that program has been halted. The “High Five Friday” program aimed to bring uniformed police officers to the city’s elementary schools on Fridays to welcome students to school. The idea for the program began after a law enforcement conference in San Diego, in which High Five Fridays were promoted as a way for officers to engage with young people, WWLP reported.

Organized by Planned Parenthood, Council for American-Islamic Relations, the Communist Party, and other progressive movements, American women came to Donald Trump's doorstep to express their anger, fury, indignation, and outrage over the fact that they can't name a single right that men have and women don't.

    “Comrade, your statement is factually incorrect.” “Yes, it is. But it is politically correct.” The notion of political correctness came into use among Communists in the 1930s as a semi-humorous reminder that the Party’s interest is to be treated as a reality that ranks above reality itself. Because all progressives, Communists included, claim to be about creating new human realities, they are perpetually at war against nature’s laws and limits. But since reality does not yield, progressives end up pretending that they themselves embody those new realities. Hence, any progressive movement’s nominal goal eventually ends up being subordinated to the...

    NEW YORK (AP) — You might have thought about it, heard it. A lot. You might have even felt it: Dictionary.com's word of the year is "xenophobia." While it's difficult to get at exactly why people look up words in dictionaries, online or on paper, it's clear that in contentious 2016, fear of "otherness" bruised the collective consciousness around the globe.

    EXCERPT According to Mark Waller, the NFL’s international chief, the NFL is hoping tonight’s game in Mexico will also become a recurring international game. “My goal would be similar to the U.K., where we’re able to go back at least once a year and create our piece of the Mexico City sporting calendar,” Waller said, according to NFL.com. “Mexico City has the size of NFL fan base that would rival any city in the United States. The area is 22 million people. It’s a huge and very passionate fan base.” Tonight’s game is part of the NFL’s larger effort to...

    The appointment of Marine Corps General James N. Mattis to head up Central Command (CENTCOM) is, of course, very good news. Mattis, after all, may well be America’s greatest living general. He certainly is one of the most intellectually formidable advocates of counterinsurgency warfare. However, Mattis’ appointment –- or, to be more precise, the reaction to his appointment amongst reporters and by the Pentagon leadership — raises troubling doubts about whether the American elite understand and are committed to free speech. I say this for two reasons: First because the Pentagon has imposed new and more restrictive rules on military...

    American Thinker ^ | November 19, 2016 | James G. Robertson
    Three universities in Virginia associated with our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia, James Madison University, and George Mason University, are embroiled in free speech battles over what faculty, students, and employees can or cannot say. University of VirginiaLast week, UVa faculty released a letter to President Sullivan wherein they requested that she stop quoting Thomas Jefferson in mass emails to faculty, students, and employees. For many of us, the inclusion of Jefferson quotations in these e-mails undermines the message of unity, equality and civility that you are attempting to convey (here.) Ostensibly, the rationale had something to do...

    If you wonder where the politically correct malady that afflicts America came from, Boston University professor emeritus Angelo M. Codevilla has the answer. "The notion of political correctness came into use among Communists in the 1930s as a semi-humorous reminder that the Party's interest is to be treated as a reality that ranks above reality itself," Dr. Codevilla writes in the Fall 2016 issue of the Claremont Review of Books. Dr. Codevilla indicates that the politically correct directive began word-of-mouth as a running joke that communists told each other that went like this: "Comrade, your statement is factually incorrect." "Yes,...
