    The candidate for a seat in the UC Berkeley student Senate promised safe spaces for squirrels, better access to acorns and support groups for those experiencing habitat loss. His name was Furry Boi, he campaigned in a squirrel suit and he attracted immediate attention. "omg i love him he's so cute," Iris Melody Xu, a UC Berkeley student, wrote on Furry Boi's Facebook page. "Finally, a candidate I can get behind," someone else wrote. But when the character that sophomore Stephen Boyle had created as a joke actually won one of the Associated Students of the University of California's 20...
  • Students target frats for 'cultural appropriation' (no more Toga Parties)

    Campus Reform ^ | April 26, 2018 | Toni Airaksinen
    Student senators at the University of Washington-Seattle recently introduced a bill that would require fraternities to prevent "cultural appropriation" during social gatherings. [Snip] ... the bill is necessary because many "mainstream [fraternity] celebrations further perpetuate stereotypes minority groups have to face," adding that they contribute to the "harm that minority students face" on campus.
  • In a World Where Everyone's Offended by Everything, Can Comedy Exist? (Much Apu About Nothing)

    One of the greatest comic minds of the twentieth century, Mel Brooks, said late last year that "stupid political correctness" would be "the death of comedy." "It's not good for comedy," Brooks said in September 2017.  "Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks.  Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behavior." It's safe to say Brooks speaks from a podium of unparalleled wisdom on this matter.  His movie Blazing Saddles remains one of the least politically correct movies Hollywood has ever made.  It's also probably the funniest.  Brooks has said that that "political correctness...
  • Columbia Student Complains About Professor Saying 'Negro' During Lesson About 1960s

    A Columbia University student publicly complained about her professor using the word "Negro," even though he said it in a lesson about 1960s America. The Columbia Daily Spector ran a story Thursday about what happens "when professors make racially insensitive remarks." The paper cited a complaint by student Maria Fernanda Martinez of a perceived "microagression." Martinez said her professor told the class it was appropriate to use the term "Negro" when discussing the 1960's, a time when that was the politically correct term for African-Americans.

    My brother was kind enough to pass this article along to ruin my weekend: We Nneed the Singular They and It Wont Seem Wrong For Long. He thought it could provide fodder for my Monday Moanin post, and that it did, splendiferously. He noted that while it was written by an educated woman who clearly knows better, her allegiance to the 198 or so newly discovered genders demands that she take this position.The article is written by Stephanie Golden, a ground breaking editor in her own right who has been serving humanity with gender equality copy since the late...

    A female student who told school administrators she'd been sexually assaulted by a teacher was suspended and then forced to apologize to the accused perpetrator and hug him, according to an indictment against three Colorado school officials handed down Wednesday. Principal David Gonzales, Vice Principal AJ MacIntosh and counselor Cheryl Somers-Wegienka of Prairie Middle School in Aurora, Colo. were named in the indictments, FOX31 Denver reported. The Cherry Creek School District informed parents MacIntosh and Gonzales were placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the court proceedings. Somers-Wegienka stopped working at the school before the indictment. The indictment stems...

    Eater, a food and restaurant review blog, is pretty much thumbs down on Chick-fil-A. Not that they have anything against their food, its their lack of SJW credentials, their failure to conform to correct group-think with respect to same sex marriage that earned them the distinction of being voted off the food island. Im here to report that the increasingly ubiquitous chain serves a pretty good fast-food breakfast, a pretty great frozen coffee, and a pretty average chicken sandwich. Im also here to report that its the only top 10 quick-service restaurant that doesnt mention sexual orientation in its online...

    George Orwell would have been the first to admit that by controlling language you can control people's attitudes. The government has been doing that for years with code phrases like "Abortion" (also known as ending the life of a baby) and "Earned Income Tax Credit" (also known as welfare). But now liberals are getting upset that President Trump is ripping several pages from their new-speak lexicon. The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nations top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases including fetus and transgender in any official documents being prepared...

    It seems like only yesterday we were discussing the release of Hibaj Barbie just in time for Christmas. Her arrival has caught the attention of others as well, including James Robbins in USA Today who writes that the doll is not exclusively targeted at Muslim parents which is good because theyre not a reliable source of Christmas revenue. One obvious market for the doll is the liberal, non-Muslim parent who wants to make a statement to the world about tolerance and intersectionality.This is the kind of person who dresses a baby boy in pink to trap the unwary into...

    A federal appeals court has found that a 40-foot-tall cross on a Maryland state highway median just outside Washington violates the U.S. Constitution. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond ruled Wednesday that the 92-year-old monument known as the Bladensburg cross amounts to government sponsorship of a particular religion. [] The American Humanist Association said it endorses Christianity while ignoring non-Christian veterans.

    I work for a college which is very liberal these days, in your face banners and condescending "workshops" open to all frequently, with "diversity credit" (reference below). It's sickening enough. Including having Moochelle Uhbama here the other year. But since Trump was elected, now we get hand-wringing e-mails about "hatred" and that we need to beware of evil right-wing people who cause violence (LOL). Got another one today.

    A school board in Portland, Ore., has dropped Lynch from the names of two elementary schools,claiming it had negative connotations and made some people feel uncomfortable. The move Wednesday evening by the Centennial School Districts board also included a slight alteration to the name of a third school. But the move has sparked criticism, including on social media, from some community residents and former students. They claim the boards decision is a sign of political correctness running amok. The district had received complaints in recent years that the names of Lynch Meadows Elementary School, Lynch View Elementary School and Lynch...

    In todays edition of Whats Wrong With America? we focus on education.Nearly half of all U.S. students graduate with an A average. Thats right: Nearly half of Americas Class of 2016 are A students. Meanwhile, their average SAT score fell from 1,026 to 1,002 on a 1,600-point scale suggesting that those A's on report cards might be fool's gold. USA Today Thats up from 38% in 1998. At this rate 100% of the progeny of Gen Z should be A students. All dumber than a box of rocks. So maybe theyll be able to figure out how to...

    ESPN's audience saw a decrease in conservative leaning viewers between 2015 and 2016, according to a new analysis. Deep Root Analytics conducted the study which found that ESPN viewership in 34 of 43 television markets saw a decrease in Republican viewers between the years that kick-started the presidential campaigns and election. Multiple channels in the ESPN family saw their viewership move to the left of the political spectrum. While ESPN and ESPN 2 saw just a 5 percent and 10 percent decrease in Republican viewers respectively, ESPN News viewership became 36 percent less Republican. The decrease in conservative viewers was...
