    Who’s ready for the nation to be covered in rainbows again this year? Apparently Walmart is, as it just released its newest collection for its gay clothing options this pride month. While the store seemed elated about its new clothes, users on social media, who are arguably tired of woke crap being literally everywhere, blasted not only the collection but Walmart as a whole. The video advertisement, which was shared on Walmart’s Instagram page, showed queer people gathered all together for a photo shoot. “Queer people have magic that we can share,” a man said at the start of the...
  • When I Went To The Doctor For Kidney Stones, She Cared More About Pronouns Than Patient Care

    When I woke one recent morning to severe pain from a bout of kidney stones, I knew I had an excruciating day ahead of me. I didn’t realize how excruciating until I arrived at George Washington University Hospital’s emergency room where one of the ER’s resident physicians greeted me wearing a pin: “Ask Me About My Pronouns.” The remainder of my morning became a real-life demonstration of how woke physicians prioritize ideology over patient care. The bloodwork taken upon my arrival showed a high white blood cell count, and during my stay, I complained of pain in both my kidneys....

    There’s been a shocking update in the Scottie Scheffler saga. The world’s top golfer was arrested for allegedly “dragging” a police officer during a confusing and chaotic moment en route to the golf course.. As it turns out, ESPN reporters were also on the scene and revealed the true story. According to them, the Keystone cop managing the traffic went on an unhinged power trip and turned into a banshee. He was not “dragged,” the ESPN reporters claim. Once this news broke, charges were quickly dropped against Mr. Scheffler. We thought that was the end of it—aside from the massive...
  • Half of trainee doctors at UCLAs prestigious medical school 'are failing basic tests after dean who's anti-white ignored affirmative action ban and terrorized staff with DEI rules'

    A DEI-fixated dean at UCLA's world-famous medical school has allowed standards to plummet by discriminating against white and Asian applicants, it is claimed. The David Geffen School of Medicine in Los Angeles boasts Nobel Prize winners on its faculty and accepts just 173 students out of the 14,000 who apply to it each year. But it has plunged from sixth to 18th place in the rankings since the appointment of Jennifer Lucerno as dean of admissions in June 2020 amid claims that the admissions bar for underrepresented minorities is now 'as low as you could possibly imagine'. 'All the normal...
  • Death of American staple as CEO tanks her own company's stock by announcing they're 'not as relevant' anymore

    An iconic American eatery's stock has plummeted in recent week after the company's CEO said the restaurant is no longer 'relevant'. Cracker Barrel, the Southern country-themed restaurants with 662 locations across the nation, has been diminishing in popularity over the past decade - with its loyal clientele of elderly people failing to return after the pandemic. The business tanked even more when its chief executive Julie Felss Masino told investors, 'We're just not as relevant as we once were.' While speaking on an investor call, Masino, who took over the CEO position nine months ago, admitted, 'Some of our recipes...

    Washington DC's woke Mayor Muriel Bowser will travel on a taxpayer-funded jaunt to Las Vegas with her team just hours from now. It comes just weeks after the Democrat faced backlash for attending the lavish Masters golf tournament that cost $5,000 per person, Bowser personally revealed. The mayor will travel with a team of 14 on an 'economic mission' to the International Council of Shopping Centers at the Wynn Las Vegas on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, according to her public calendar.

    The mayor of Warsaw has banned the display of religious symbols such as crosses from city hall, making it the first city in Poland to do so. He has also informed officials that they must respect the rights of same-sex couples and people’s preferred pronouns. News of the regulations were first reported today by Gazeta Wyborcza, a leading daily newspaper. It notes that the policies are part of new internal guidelines intended to counteract discrimination. “Warsaw is the first city in Poland to adopt such a document,” Monika Beuth, the spokeswoman for mayor Rafał Trzaskowski, told the newspaper. Under the...

    Courts in England are reportedly looking to scrap the requirement for barristers to wear traditional wigs amid claims that they discriminate against lawyers with “Afro-Caribbean hair”. The iconic manner of dress in English courtrooms may become wokism’s latest scalp as demands have been made to abandon the requirement of barristers to wear wigs in front of the court because they are “culturally insensitive”, The Telegraph reports.

    Boise’s Cathedral Of The Rockies is one of the worst churches goat pens around. They’re a pro-LGBTQQIP2SAA, pro-choice United Methodist Church (ie, not a church at all) that we last wrote about after they sent out a church newsletter encouraging congregants to help abortion-minded women by paying for their abortions, abortion pills, and traveling expenses to cover the costs of their baby-killing in light of the overturning of Roe. v. Wade. During a recent service, they put on a feminist remix of ‘Be Thou My Vision’ titled ‘God of the Women.’ Written by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette in 1998, she says...

    American Thinker ^ | 16 May, 2024 | Andrea Widburg
    It’s a standing joke in my family that I love Keanu Reeves. It started in my 30s when I loved how he looked, but over the years, it’s morphed into respect for a man who works in a filthy industry but seems to have retained a strong moral compass and avoids all of Hollywood’s worst trends. It says something about the man that the Hamas lovers have come after him. One of the hallmarks of totalitarians is “hit lists.” Indeed, if you’re at all familiar with Giovannino Guareschi’s delightful Don Camillo books from the 1950s, which describe a small Italian...

    From NEXTDOOR policy. “…We stand in solidarity with neighbors advocating for racial justice and those speaking out against hate. These issues are relevant in neighborhoods everywhere -- that’s why we allow conversations in support of Black Lives Matter, Stop Asian Hate, and other movements that advocate for racial equality and civil rights anywhere on Nextdoor as long as they adhere to our community guidelines. Content posted in opposition or as a rebuttal to support for racial equality is counterproductive and harmful. We ask that neighbors be mindful of engaging constructively in discussions on these issues. While neighbors are free to...

    Do you currently enjoy a workplace environment that is free of violent criminals? Is your work bathroom reserved for members of the same sex as you? You might not enjoy those commonsense benefits for much longer. The Biden administration is flexing the bureaucratic state’s muscle to force businesses to comply with its progressive worldview.Last month, the Biden administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that it was suing Sheetz, a popular gas station and convenience store chain in the mid-Atlantic, for alleged racially discriminatory hiring practices. Sheetz is a great American success story. It was opened by Bob Sheetz in 1950...

    In dissertation titled 'Cite a Sista,' Tracie Jones-Barrett stole an entire passage on 'ethical considerations' from her classmate.. In June 2021, a year into the cultural aftershocks of George Floyd's death, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology set out to meet the moment, as so many other schools had, by hiring more diversity officers. MIT welcomed six new deans of diversity, equity, and inclusion, one for each of the institute's main schools, as part of a "DEI Strategic Action Plan" launched the previous year. Aimed at boosting the representation of women and minorities, in part by developing DEI criteria for staff...

    A “woke” Washington, DC, judge is facing backlash after he opted to cut loose an 18-year-old accused of firing more than two dozen rounds from an AR-15 into a car full of people. Lloyd U. Nolan Jr., a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, last week ordered Amonte Moody to be released on house arrest ahead of his trial — despite acknowledging that the teen’s alleged actions could have killed someone. Moody, who was slapped with charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, had allegedly sprayed 26 shots at an SUV carrying four people on Independence...

    In a solemn, pre-dawn ceremony, the flag that's been flying over Minnesota's State Capitol for decades was lowered for the last time. Voices hushed in a crowd of more than a dozen onlookers at 5 a.m. on Saturday as the flag with Civil War-era imagery was carefully carried from the darkened Capitol rooftop to the building's front steps, where two National Guard members folded it into a tri-cornered shape and presented it to the state's Historical Society for preservation. As the sun rose, a new official banner was hoisted on the same flagpole overlooking St. Paul, a stripped-down design featuring...

    WOODSTOCK, Va. — A Virginia school board voted Friday to restore the names of Confederate military leaders to a high school and an elementary school, four years after the names had been removed. Shenandoah County’s school board voted 5-1 to rename Mountain View High School as Stonewall Jackson High School, and Honey Run Elementary as Ashby Lee Elementary. Friday’s vote reverses a decision by the school board in 2020, a time when school systems across the South were removing Confederate names from schools in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Survey comes after federal judge shouted down on campus More than one third of Stanford University students say using physical violence to stop a speech is acceptable in at least some circumstances, according to a new report. The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression conducted the survey after federal Judge Kyle Duncan’s speech on campus was shouted down last year. The report evaluated students’ perspectives about free speech on campus and protests in the aftermath of the event. FIRE Chief Research Advisor Sean Stevens told The College Fix the research found “considerably higher” support for canceling a speaker among Stanford...
