  • The Second Great Age of Political Correctness

    Reason ^ | January2022 | GREG LUKIANOFF
    The P.C. culture of the '80s and '90s didn't decline and fall. It just went underground. Now it's back. The 1994 movie PCU, about a rebellious fraternity resisting its politically correct university, was a milestone. Not because the movie was especially good—it wasn't. It was a milestone because it showed that political correctness had officially become a joke. The derisive term "P.C." had referred to a genuine and powerful force on campus for the previous decade. But by the mid-1990s, it had become the butt of jokes from across the political spectrum. The production of a mainstream movie mocking political...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman sought for causing “significant damage” to a Denver cathedral was arrested in Portland days after Denver officials said she might be in the Rose City. Madeline Ann Cramer allegedly damaged the Cathedral Basilica in Denver on October 10, authorities said. Though authorities don’t know where she is, investigators said they believe she may be in the Portland area. On Thursday, police said Cramer was arrested on SE Division around 121st after tips from the public led them to her. KDVR in Denver, a sister station with KOIN, reported the vandalism included messages of symbols...

    We graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology 50 years ago. Though it was a tough place academically, MIT taught us our crafts and the essence of problem-solving and enabled us to thrive in our chosen careers. We owe much to ”the ‘tute,” as it is fondly known, and have demonstrated that financially over the years. But no more. Today, the 160 year-old-institution, once a bedrock of science and innovation, has caved to the demands of “wokeness.” In autumn of 2020, MIT sent an email to students, including those already registered and attending, informing them that if they failed to...

    The largely pro-life country of Malta, located south of Sicily, has been facing pressure to legalize abortion and euthanasia and abandon its deeply-held principles. Activists are working to make abortion legal in the island nation, though pro-life Maltese citizens are continuing to stand strong — even as police have begun cracking down on pro-life advocacy as “hate speech.” Emma Portelli Bonnici is a candidate running for office with the Nationalist Party (PN). In a press conference, she promised free contraception and morning-after pills within six months if her party is put into power. She’s also openly pro-abortion, and filed a...

    Mass Resistance: pro-family activism ^ | October 20, 2021 | Staff
    The trial of pro-family activist Bill Whatcott continues in Toronto. As we reported in our first installment, Bill is charged with “willful promotion of hatred” for passing out controversial flyers during the 2016 Toronto Gay Pride Parade. It’s stunning (and frightening) that the Canadian government is going to these extreme lengths over a flyer that in the U.S. (and most places) would simply have been considered an annoyance at most, not a high-profile felony that carries prison time. The trial began on Oct 4. During the following three sessions (Oct. 11, Oct. 15, and Oct. 18) the Crown (i.e. prosecution)...

    The jumping off point for this Substack piece by Freddie deBoer is the story I wrote about here. If you missed it, the very short version is that a progressive data analyst named David Shor, who was literally fired from his job last year because a cancel mob went after him, is trying to warn Democrats that they are not going to win elections anytime in the next decade if they keep talking like leftist college professors. His advice to the party is simple: Talk about broadly popular things you support not about broadly unpopular things the far left is...

    The State Department has walked back comments made last week that the Biden administration is engaged in strategic talks related to “Palestine.” The State Department’s spokeswoman, Jalina Porter, to whom the report referred to as “controversy-prone,” mentioned at a press briefing last week that officials were engaged in talks with Palestinian officials “surrounding Palestine” – a nonexistent state. “Any time that we engage on issues of, surrounding Palestine they are strategic,” she said. The report noted: Porter’s reference to “Palestine” would represent a monumental shift in decades of U.S. policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The State Department’s longstanding policy, upheld...
  • NY Times' columnist Michelle Goldberg downplays cancel culture (but her readers disagree)

    To really appreciate Michelle Goldberg’s latest column on cancel culture, you need to consider how the left’s talking points on the topic have calcified over the past few years. For most of the past 5-6 years the left has been writing versions of the same story over and over claiming that cancel culture isn’t real. The progressive line is that cancel culture doesn’t exist, it’s just that some people are finally being held accountable for their bad behavior. Meanwhile, evidence of this sort of “accountability culture” going too far continues to pile up on a weekly basis. It’s an untenable...

    Two women’s volleyball coaches at the University of Oklahoma argue in a legal motion that they have the right to discipline players for their political beliefs. Player Kylee McLaughlin sued coaches Lindsey and Kyle Walton along with the OU Board of Regents earlier this year, alleging “she had been excluded from the team […] over her politically conservative views.” The OU Daily reported that McLaughlin, the OU team captain and first team All-Big 12 selection in 2018 and 2019, had made comments that “at least one” of her teammates considered “racist” following a team viewing of the Netflix documentary “13th.”...

The attack, which was caught on film showed the prayer group meeting in Portland area park Saturday afternoon when dozens of black-bloc clad terrorists walked up to the group launching fireworks, smoke bombs, and bottles. Women and children were among the group praying at the park.

    A Harvard professor of evolutionary biology has been slammed by her department's diversity head for rejecting the term 'pregnant people' and insisting on referring to people as male or female instead. Carole Hooven, who has been at the university for 20 years and received multiple teaching awards, spoke of feeling 'frustrated' at the atmosphere in academia. She told Fox News on Wednesday that she was dismayed at the insistence on politically correct terminology, which she felt was misguided. University professors were discouraged from using the words male and female, and referring to pregnant women, she said. The terms were deemed...

    LGBT activists are relentless in forcing their agenda on the American people. It’s not enough for companies to fly rainbow flags every Pride month — they have to use special pronouns, too. It’s not enough for businesses to serve LGBT people — they have to bake custom cakes celebrating same-sex weddings and gender transitions, too. It’s not enough for Christian companies to stop funding outspoken political groups — they have to stop funding Christian groups, too.Take Chick-fil-A, for example. Back in 2012, LGBT activists targeted Chick-fil-A for a “kiss-in,” to protest the fast food joint’s stance defining marriage as being...

    Liberals’ Obsession with ‘Christian Nationalism’The chattering class is very preoccupied these days with “Christian nationalism.” The pundits who speak darkly about it don’t bother to define the phrase, but it is meant to conjure up a terrifying picture of extremism. That liberals consider it a devastating slur speaks to their own anti-Christian and anti-nationalist views.The existence of patriotic Christians across the land certainly wouldn’t have alarmed the Founding Fathers. They would have found the use of “Christian nationalism” as an epithet puzzling. Indeed, they assumed that the American form of government would work best in the hands of a Christian...

    The executive director of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA), Harsha Walia, is under fire for commenting on a story about the wave of church arsons sweeping Canada by saying “Burn it all down.” Walia, a Bahrain-born South Asian based in Vancouver and described as “a community organizer and campaigner in migrant justice, feminist, anti-capitalist, abolitionist, and anti-imperialist movements” in her profile at the left-wing Intercept, made the inflammatory intervention in response to a VICE report on two Roman Catholic churches being burned down in Alberta and Nova Scotia. Many churches have been burned or vandalised in recent days,...

    Last week, Canada’s Liberal Party headed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proposed new legislation to criminalize “hate speech” online, punishable by a $50,000 fine (roughly $40,000 U.S.D.), paid to the government. Government officials, including the attorney general and the minister of public safety, announced the new bill on Wednesday. “Canadians expect their government to take action against hate speech and hate crimes. These legislative changes would improve the remedies available to victims of hate speech and hate crimes, and would hold individuals accountable. The actions we are taking today will help protect the vulnerable, empower those who are victimized and...

    The Trudeau government is proposing legal changes intended to curb online hate speech and make it easier for the victims of hate speech to launch complaints. The proposed Bill C-36 includes an addition to the Canadian Human Rights Act that the government says will clarify the definition of online hate speech and list it as a form of discrimination. "These changes are designed to target the most egregious and clear forms of hate speech that can lead to discrimination and violence," said Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada David Lametti at a Wednesday evening news conference. "They do...
