There’s only a little, peripheral, funny in this bit of endy.

This week in Higher Ed!

Shut up, they explained.

Sheriff Clarke Disinvited From U. New Haven for Criticizing Black Lives Matter
St. Louis U. Students Walk Out of Allen West Speech to Protest Use of Term ‘Radical Islam’
Milo Yiannopolous Event at Florida Atlantic U. Cancelled Over Death Threat

It’s this bad.

Students Report Profs to Bias Response Team For Voicing Conservative Views
Latino Professor at Michigan State Harassed for Supporting Trump
Janet Napolitano Stands up for Free Speech on Campus

Everything is subject to control.

Students at UC Merced Told Term ‘Greek Life’ is ‘Cultural Appropriation’
Penn State Campaign to Shame Students Over Cultural Appropriation in Halloween Costumes
Musical Aida Victim of “Cultural Appropriation”

And good luck if you’re male.

Judge refuses to cave to SJW pressure campaign, reinstates male student at Brown U.
Duke Creates Safe Space for Men to Contemplate Their ‘Toxic Masculinity’
Columbia Student Claims He Was Disciplined for Calling Himself Handsome

We’re living in 1984.

James Madison U. Gives Students Seven Page Guide to Free Speech
UNC Chapel Hill Marked First Amendment Day With Panel on Safe Spaces

 

 

That’s a messed up week.

James Madison U has a seven page guide to free speech. Methinks that’s speech that’s not so free.

What makes it especially fendy is that it’s at the university named for the man who’s most responsible for the Bill of fucking Rights.

You know, the man who helped write the rules for our whole nation, including the part about free speech, that’s fewer than 7 pages long.

Can we force James Madison U. to change its name because of cultural appropriation. He’s an American, they shouldn’t be using his name at an anti-American university.

 

Now this is a bit of really endy with a part that makes it even endier.

(L.A. County Sheriff Sargeant) Owen went behind the building, where the gunman shot him with a stolen gun then stood over his body and fired four more times, McDonnell said at a news conference.

Horrific.

With this bit about the press conference on the execution.

(Sheriff) McDonnell rejected any suggestion that Lovell, who is black, may have shot in self-defense

Self-defense. Which fucking “journalist” started asking about self-defense? In an execution.

Another good man murdered because of the rhetoric of the Obama admin, Hillary!, Minitrue and the rest of the Dem party.

 

No linky, but Trump must still be doing pretty well because all I see are stories about him saying the kind of thing Bill Clinton does, with Hillary! saying a man like that doesn’t belong in the White House, stories about “Senior GOP Want Trump To Step Down!!!!!”, yeah, we know. They’ve wanted that since about a year before he was officially nominated, and stories about how Trump is losing in the polls.

Watching CNN, you’d think nothing else in the world is going on but that Trump said something Bill Clinton would do and the hurricane.

 

I think we need some funny, so you gets some funny.

Police appeal for information about chicken crossing road

 

Although I’d bet the NY Post wouldn’t think it was funny.  they should have written that headline.

That’s Cultural Appropriation!!!!!!!!!

 

First up, we have the Puppy Blender’s case where the U of Tenn “investigated” his tweet suggesting that people who are being threatened by mostly-peaceful protesters should “Run them down”.

As we all know, when a minority (certain minorities generally) attacks whitey, it’s always whitey’s fault and defending oneself is itself aggression.

Ace write

Do you think the University of Tennessee wishes Glenn Reynolds to know — to reallly know — he’s free to speak?

Or do you think they intended to install a Censorship Inside Man in his head, causing him to mind his p’s and q’s?

 

Sure they lost one with the puppy blender by biting off more than they can stomp and spit on, and I’d bet he knows he won so this won’t change his behavior much, but the less powerful will see it and be careful accordingly.

Others are starting to notice we’re in 90s redux.

I can’t believe I have to write about “cultural appropriation” again/now/anymore. But as another Clinton veers toward the White House, and a new Blair Witch movie debuts, why shouldn’t the Permanent Floating Nineties Revival embrace the other accoutrements of that decade, especially the asphyxiating political correctness that never did go out of style?

 

I see I’m not the only one who hated that decade and isn’t happy about bringing it back. I do wonder when people will start to notice that at least in the 90s we had won the Cold War and now we look as if we’ve lost it (by becoming much more commie) and Obama is rekindling it abroad.

In previous decades the remakes weren’t always bad (The Last Remake of Beau Geste was particularly good), but in this decade they all suck.

Why isn’t this in more newpapers than just the Washington Free Beacon?

Several Afghan nationals undergoing military training in the United States disappeared from U.S. military bases this month, according to Pentagon and Homeland Security officials…

Three of the Afghan military trainees fled from a Pentagon training program two weekends ago during the bombing spree in New York and New Jersey by Afghan-born bombing suspect Ahmad Rahami, raising concerns among security officials that the missing Afghan students may be linked to terrorism or plans for attacks in the United States.

If you asked yourself that question about other places reporting on it, smack yourself. Geez, that might help Trump! It Has To Be Ignored!

Talk about a maroon.

A Middle Tennessee Uber driver has been suspended after police say she refused to give a ride to a man and his service dog.

First, what are the police doing getting involved in that? That’s not a police matter, that’s a ‘Call Uber and complain” deal. Jebus.

But what that ‘person’ didn’t realize is that she’s not enough of a protected class.

Some Muslim cab drivers are refusing service to a growing number of passengers with alcohol or dogs, and officials at Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport are trying to fight it.

“Trying to fight it.” and losing.

She should have said she was Muslim and it’s against her religion. Jeez, is nobody paying attention?

Speaking of not paying attention to reality and our fine media betters ignoring anything that could Help Trump!!!!!, Hillary!

The email deal is just too murky to actually blame Hillary! for it!!!!!! I mean, there’s just no proof it was a cover-up!!!!

CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook on Sunday to answer why an IT worker who maintained Clinton’s private email server referred to a 60-day email-retention policy as a “Clinton cover-up operation.”

So CNN was on the job!!!! They uncovered it!!!!

In an interview on “State of the Union,” Tapper asked why an employee of Platte River, which hosted Clinton’s private email server, referred to the policy of deleting emails during the time after Clinton was out of office as a “cover-up operation,” a comment the IT worker told the FBI was a joke.

It Was A Joke So Spike that! We Can’t Help Trump!

 

Another narrative is that Hillary! Has Experience!!!!!!

Evidence shows she left the State Department in shambles and our nation weaker. Her record at Foggy Bottom disqualifies her to be president.

Her failures go beyond leaving four Americans to die in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the ridiculous Russian “reset” and the carnage in Syria that she and President Obama idly watched unfold — and that gets more horrific daily.

A string of investigative reports from the Obama administration shows that she botched key management jobs as secretary of state, threatening American lives and our diplomatic secrets.

Clinton’s State Department repeatedly rebuffed requests for additional security for the vulnerable compound at Benghazi, Libya. The result? Heavily armed terrorists were able to storm the compound and kill Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Can’t Note That!!!!! It Might Help Trump!!!!!!!  She’s A Political Heavyweight Who Has Experience!!!!!!

This from the media still pretending to believe her “non-contagious, made-up pneumonia” bullshit.

Inclusion: It’s Only For Some People!!!!!

You can think that “all lives matter” – you just can’t say it.

The outgoing president of the National Association for College Admission Counseling faced an uproar after he spoke the forbidden phrase of solidarity with humanity, regardless of a person’s race or creed, at the group’s conference Thursday.

Inside Higher Ed reports that Phillip Trout’s initial apology statement did not include the talismanic phrase “black lives matter.” He simply apologized for having “offended and hurt so many people” with words that are “not right,” and promised the association’s board would spend more time “addressing issues of race and human relations.”

That’s as funny and endy a deal as I’ve seen all…uhhh….last 20 minutes.

 

I love this one, it goes against the narrative. Lawrence KS has a great twitter feed.

 

One problems, what are they culturally appropriating a black man!!!!!!!!! Shouldn’t they be shooting him instead of using him as an illustration? Bastards!

Look at this that we found via Zilla

Someone made that up and it’s good so we’re going with it.

 

Someone made this up, but it wasn’t stupid enough.

An assistant professor at the University of Houston recently agreed to distribute “emotional first-aid kits” to students, apparently not realizing it was a satirical ploy by James O’Keefe.

The funniest part? Trick question, the whole dam thing is hilarious.

Don’t believe me?

To help students deal with such burdens, the emotional first-aid kits contain a baby blanket, chocolates, a plush kitten, a bag containing the smell of lavender, ear plugs, a genderless pastel teddy bear, hand written notes, and a pacifier.

(wait for it….wait for it…)

Only the pacifier gave Schindler any pause, though only out of concern that students might take them the wrong way. Instead, she suggested that the kit just contain a note encouraging students to suck their thumbs.

Yeah, argue with that. James O’Keefe was trying to be over the top ridiculous and that nitwit quadrupled down. High-freaking-larious.

 

You don’t have to make this up.

Palantir Technologies co-founder Peter Thiel is evidently paying the price for backing Republican nominee Donald Trump, as the Obama administration has slapped his company with a frivolous lawsuit alleging “racial discrimination” against Asians.

We’ve seen how the Obama admin works for too long, it’s Chicago machine politics writ large across our nation.

Most Transparent Administration Ever!

 

I wish I was making this drudgetaposition up.

Refugees terrorizing Germany, how do authorities respond?

The number of migrants under suspicion of links to terrorism as well as the amount of investigations against potential terrorists in their ranks is on the rise, the German Federal Criminal Police (BKA) told the Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung newspaper….

Senior German officials have reiterated, though, that there should be no “general suspicion” against asylum seekers. “We must not put all refugees under general suspicion, even if there are ongoing investigations in specific cases,” German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said.

I started with a different story for the next one but then I asked myself, “Can it be even more stupider?” The obvious answer was “Yes!!!!!!” so I put Dresden mosque German Minister Thomas De Maiziere into a search engine and voila!

Someone blows up a mosque in Germany, how do authorities respond?

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere called the attacks “outrageous” and condemned them sharply.

“Aggression against people who are practicing Islam is increasing in Germany,”…

Fortunately, people didn’t get hurt, but we don’t want these things to happen in Germany.”

 

Huh. So on the one hand we have German rulers importing terrorists and telling their serfs to stop being so intolerant.

On the hand, we have a mosque blown up and German rulers are telling their serfs to stop being so intolerant.

On the gripping hand, carep scrotum!

It’s funny how often our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters do not have any respect, or even liking, for the countries they ostensibly represent.

 

 

Speaking of dazed and confused, J Effin Kerry has ‘negotiated’ a Cease-Fire in Syria!!!!!

Expect the unexpected news that this cease-fire includes lots of bombs and probably some more gas attacks.

In more dazed and confused news, in speaking about Trump, Hillary! says

So it is clear that he went down with a mission, it’s been the mission of his whole campaign, from the very first day, to demonize immigrants to call mexicans rapists and criminals, to do everything he could to stir up all kinds of bad feelings about hard working people.

Hillary! also says

“To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,'” Clinton said, according to a recording of her remarks obtained by Variety. “Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.

Huh. So it’s bad when you demonize furriners but not so bad when you demonize Americans.

She does realize she’s running for president of America, doesn’t she?

Another thing she doesn’t seem to realize is that, even though she said we wouldn’t put troops in Iraq, we already have them.

Twitchy is unclear on the concept of minitrue,

Why isn’t Hillary Clinton’s ground troops gaffe bigger news?

I’ll field that one, cuz they are busy trying to get her elected.
Now if Trump had said it, we would see it in every news broadcast, Law & Order episode and commercials for dog food. Heck, they’d work it into the next few movies released.

 

So what do Clintonistas do when they gain the reins of power?

The counter at HeyJackass.com has the total number of people (and folks) shot standing at 3,000 this very morning…

nd finally, the Captain of this sinking vessel, a man who needs a milk crate just to see over the tidal wave of corruption, a guy who never met the underside of a bus he couldn’t shovel someone under (even if he needed a jack to raise the bus a little bit higher), the 9.5-digit-midget himself, Rahm.

He has brought a tone-deafness to the mayor’s office unseen in history. And now, he has a shooting total that rivals that of an actual war. He took the “Second City” and made it “Number One!” with a bullet….or a lot of bullets we suppose.

Yeah, expect more of that. More cities being blown up by their inhabitants and more inhabitants being blown up by more jihadis.

Clintonistas do not know how to lead, they think they know how to reign. Which means attacking those who disagree with you and paying off those who do while the little people, the ones who cannot give Clintons and their istas $millions, get blown up.

So we might have that going for us.

Dick and Liz Cheney have a different take, but then, they’re more optimistic than I am.

Defeating our enemies has been made significantly more difficult by the policies of Barack Obama. No American president has done more to weaken the U.S., hobble our defenses or aid our adversaries.

Yeah, we’ve been dealing with Carter’s idiocies for 30 years, I figure Obama can double that.

Let’s get into some Dem lies

Despite Mr. Obama’s claim that ISIS has been diminished, John Brennan, Mr. Obama’s CIA director, told the Senate Intelligence Committee in June that, “Our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability or global reach.”

Yeah, when Hillary! was Sec State, we saw all of our gains in the middle east blow up. We can expect her to import that blown upedness to America as POTUS.

The Cheneys sum it up

The president who came into office promising to end wars has made war more likely by diminishing America’s strength and deterrence ability. He doesn’t seem to understand that the credible threat of military force gives substance and meaning to our diplomacy.

Peace through superior firepower.

Although I have high hopes that Trump believes in peace through Moon-nuking.

Afraid of us because we’re badasses or because we’re crazy badasses, either one is fine with me.

As FrnakJ wrote long ago, we don’t need to worry about what the world thinks of us, they need to worry about what we think of them.

Those non-European countries really do not want Americans to know where to find them on the map. That usually means the Marines have that part of the map circled.

Let’s end on some absolute idiotic hilarity.

You know what’s hilarious? When people who clearly have no experience with superhero lore make up rules about superhero stuff.

That among other things, but good point.

So a little girl had a Wonder Woman lunch box, with Empowered Wymyn images on it, nothing violent, but her parents got a note telling them not to let the girl bring violent imagery into the school. There’s a pic of the letter and the lunch-box.

What concerns me more than a little girl being deprived of the chance to pay homage to a worthy fictional role model is the idea that “violent images,” “violent characters,” and “superheroes” are all conflated without context….

But this lunchbox has a picture of Wonder Woman’s face on one side, and on the other a full-body picture of her flying while extolling her beauty and wisdom. Two very non-violent qualities. What’s more, she’s holding her Lasso of Truth, which she never uses as a weapon.

RTWT, especially if you have kids in a public school and you’re out of espresso and having a hard time waking up. That’ll give you a nice shot of adrenaline.

School boards should be a controlled substance. Rare and only allowed out in America under a Dr’s supervision and heavily medicated.

 

So how do you celebrate Labor Day when you’re not working?

By working!

The things I do for you person.

 

Obama egging on BLM again. 

[H]e’s following his constitutional right to make a statement,” Obama said…

The biggest strawman argument about Kapernik was “First Amendment!!!!!”

Yeah, we know. And the First Amendment means we can call him an ignorant, divisive asshole.

“I don’t doubt his sincerity. I think he cares about some real, legitimate issues that have to be talked about.

I should say, not just Obama, Kapernik is an ignorant divisive asshole too.

Hillary! shaking down kids for their lunchcollege money.

A child under 16 can ask a single question of Hillary for no less than $2,700.

I can’t believe I’ve found a worse thing done to a child than be used as an expensive prop for electing a corrupt, dishonest Grannarch.

 

4-year old to undergo sex change operation in Australia.

Sorry, that’s about the most horrible thing I’ve read in years. Every adult involved in that needs to be castrated with a hedge trimmer (or lose tits if it’s a woman), drawn, quartered, fed to starving dingoes, then kill the dingoes and shove them into a cesspool.

Then nuke the cesspool.

 

Nough politics and horror, on to important stuff!

It turns out that there’s a rare fungus mushroom only found in Hawaiian lava flows that can cause women to spontaneously orgasm.

 

Just don’t bring back any volcanic sand.

Which leads us to another unnatural way to get it on.

Humans could become addicted to robot sex!!!!!!!

But now comes the warning – according to a expert in the field, we’ll need to be careful we don’t get addicted to artificial intelligence love making.

Of course, since it’s Minitrue, they ignore that this has already been covered in a documentary about New New York.

 

I’ll admit it, I’ve been boned by people, but never like this.

4 people and a divemaster went diving and the boat left them.

How does a tour boat leave without the divemaster?

 

Who sounded like an idiot, he told them to swim away from land until the riptides sucked them miles out to sea.

Important tip, if you’re in the water and your boat leaves you and some idiot tells you to swim away from land, don’t.  Swim toward land.

 

Nough current, future, horrible and idiotic events, how about some history?

I don’t recall seeing this at Coyote Blog, but then, I lost the link a few computers ago.

After seeing a piece of my son’s history curriculum at school, I realized for about the hundredth time just how poor an understanding most people have about the great industrialists of the 19th century, so unfairly painted as “robber barons”.  While it is said that “history is written by the victors”, I would observe that despite the fact that socialism and communism have been given a pretty good drubbing over the last 20 years, these statists still seem to be writing history.

Exactly, they did more to make America great than any 10 politicians and for that, our fine marxist betters will never forgive them.

How about a little plus ça change?

The first is Cornelius “Commodore” Vanderbilt, the person to whom the term robber baron was originally applied (by the New York Times, interestingly enough – some things never change).

Back to the lesson, no, the other lesson.

However, most of the great industrialists of the 19th century made money by providing customers with a better, cheaper product.  In the rest of this post, I will look at two examples.

RTWT, or better yet, forward the whole thing to a youngster to counter the hate and bile from our fine, ignorant, capitalist-hating,”elitist” betters.

 

Awesome story from a Knuckledragging sort of guy.

Champion’s name, and that of his partner, Nick Ray, topped a death list that the small army carried when they invaded Johnson County the day before. Ostensibly, they were on a mission to eliminate rustlers; the list, however, included small ranchers, everyday citizens, and the county sheriff—essentially, anyone whom they considered “undesirable.” (Gulp, V)…

It was, perhaps, the most unique siege in the annals of the West, mainly because Nate Champion—while thousands of rounds turned the inside of the cabin to splinters, and his friend and partner lay dying just a few feet away—had the presence of mind to keep a journal of the event.

 

Cool.

I only hope I can do the same when the NOAA, EPA and NASA SWAT teams show up at my house with my name topping their list.

 

 

But SJW busybodies want to do the same thing.  (via Paco)

Warning: The following post may cause severe damage to forehead, desk or keyboard.

…University of California Santa Cruz… bias reporting system to alert campus leaders that their feelings have been hurt or they have been called mean names by peers – complaints then probed by administrators.

…they will expand the program… with a seven-member administrative Bias Response Team deemed to be “the first responder to bias-related incidents.” (do they get a yellow and pink flashy light for their Bias Response Prius? V)

The team consists of the dean of students, director of counseling, campus chief of police, vice provost for academic affairs, associate vice chancellor of educational services, associate vice chancellor of safety services, and the campus diversity officer for students and staff.

 

An emergency response Bias Response Team. So what sort of things do they investigate?

a student upset because a peer said “You’re a guy. Dress like a guy.”…
a student upset because people “talk badly behind my back and text … mean things about me.”
a student upset because people clapped instead of snapped at a student govt. meeting…

 

Shit, I forgot that last idiocy. You’re not supposed to clap anymore and apparently, if you do, it’s a hate crime.

I guarantee that I will clap for the rest of my life. And if people tell me it’s a hate crime and I need to snap my fingers instead? I’ll applaud their efforts while laughing in their faces. Of course, I’ll probably be arrested over that. Such is life in this Age of Idiocy.

The first two I quoted are just dumb. Jebus. People talk about you behind your back and you need to call your university mommy to make it better?

Okay, that’s so utterly ridiculous I can’t even figure out how it makes me feel. Sorta laughing, sorta cringing, sorta just sad for the state of our civilization. These are the people who will be our next crop of “adults” who are supposed to keep the country working.

I guess I need to go to my safe space.

safe space

High Praise! to Harvey at IMAO for finding this.

Ohio State administrators did the right thing by telling their precious snowflakes to shut the fuck up and we were all impressed.

Now, their greek council is treating free speech the way the one at Faber U treated Delta House.

Since some anonymous people enChalkened OU, they’re cancelling Greek Week. The quote at the end is High-Larious, in a really stupid way.

“In making these changes, we understand that there are many who will feel that this is a punishment,” the governing councils stated in their letter, according to The Post. “We acknowledge that some teams have made efforts to be inclusive, but as a collective it is our responsibility to hold each other accountable with the ultimate goal of unifying the community.”

Inclusion, it’s only for some people.
