Don’t get me wrong, Racism is real, and it’s a problem. But not as big a problem as governments and corporations leveraging it for influence and power to create the worst sort of discrimination of all. The despotism of an elite that systemically denies everyone, regardless of color, outside its ruling class, not just opportunities but the natural rights with which we are all born.
Here in the States, one college professor has chosen a different aspect of the sex world to destigmatize and redefine. An assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at Old Dominion University, Allyn Walker, gave an interview this month about a book he wrote that seeks to distinguish between pedophiles and “minor-attracted people” who do not act on their attraction. He identifies minor-attracted people by the acronym MAP.
In addition to the obvious expense to the taxpayers of Exeter who have to pay to defend the SAU and then foot the bill for any settlements, the Education Department is a stain on our proud town. These incidents indicate a systemic problem with the department. That problem is a lack of respect for students, their parents, and the goal of educating our children.
Not so long ago, there were groups of people who were provided with everything free. They were given food, shelter, clothing, education and medical care without charge. They were protected from violent crime. They never feared unemployment. They were provided with fairs, festivals, and other free entertainment. They owned nothing and by many accounts, were happy. They were called slaves.
Should the suspect decline mediation, physical restraint may be appropriate. However, physical restraint shall only be employed under the direct supervision of a medical professional. Upon determination that physical restraint is called for, the police shall “call time out,” and request a backup doctor be dispatched. They may proceed with restraint only after receiving the doctor’s written authorization.
The state seems to be moving back towards its conservative roots, but the Seacoast and Exeter specifically are entrenched with Liberal and Democrat elected officials. This prevailing ideology also means our local school board, which ironically is housed in the original Tuck High School. The name on the building is as close as this board comes to conservative thinking.
We’d hear about how there weren’t enough women on corporate boards, but not how there weren’t enough female garbage collectors; there’d be complaints about how actresses didn’t earn as much as actors, but not about how female fashions models command far more income than their male counterparts. It was never about equality. It was always about power and prestige.
The need for this law was brought to light because the daughter (can we still use that term?) of a California Assemblyman stopped at the entrance of the boys aisle and said she was not allowed entry. Now, you might think this would have been a good opportunity for a teaching moment, but no, it is much easier to create a new law. This new regulation puts a further burden on stores still working to recover from a year of COVID. This law will require people to monitor and control compliance.
Had the skin colors been reversed, with white students aggressively confronting peaceful black students, the white students would have been summarily kicked out of school for committing a hate crime. But because the racially confrontational students were black, Arizona State’s woke administration swept the incident under the rug by characterizing it as nothing more than a harmless disagreement.
he previous attempts at societal and thought control by virtue signaling have basically been ignored by the normal people. The recent flips of the tail have been thrown on the table and been ignored. Virtue was not enough to move control forward. We are suffering through speeches about electric cars and solar panels and heat waves. The lectures about racism have not changed many attitudes.
Who decides that Green Eggs and Ham is bad but Out of the Darkness is suitable for children’s minds? When the actions of these boards are uncovered, there is no accountability. There are no suspensions or terminations. There are claims of First Amendment rights and the protections the boards require to be able to ram through their agendas.
One may be quick to blame Western Civilization, but barbarity occurred throughout Eastern Civilizations as well. The collapse of the Roman Empire was hastened by attacks from Asiatic tribes, and the Mongols routinely enslaved the vanquished. The morality of one culture or country ransacking another wasn’t really addressed until after World War II, which only occurred at great American expense.
Those who have been indoctrinated in all things leftist, instead of educated, have become a growing flock of sheep in America who are willing to surrender real freedoms for illusory government guarantees of comfort, security, and faux happiness sans rules and morality.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Reminds Us, Bowing To The Woke Mob Is A Bad Idea: A Growing List Of Examples
While Smith was clearly naïve in suggesting that the English language is relatively easy to learn, his overall point that English-speaking stars help make the sport easier to sell is obviously true. The level to which the situation is problematic is certainly debatable, but Smith’s position was certainly reasonable. But reasonableness doesn’t matter to the woke.
To use a tennis analogy in respect to MLB, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision in early-April to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver was an unforced error. And a costly one. After receiving pressure from Democrats and their media regarding Georgia’s controversial-but-not-really-controversial voting law, Manfred bowed to Cancel Culture and demands from the MLB Players Union and succumbed.
Corporations are like water, taking the shape of the vessel in which they find themselves — even if it’s shaped like Beelzebub himself. Legion now are the stories of the business and individuals who’ve value-signaled over a bathroom bill in North Carolina or some other such thing while simultaneously making millions off lands whose un-woke laws represent everything these wokesters claim to despise.
New Yorkers don’t need the city government to attack Columbus. They need the city to reopen so that they can go back to work and earn a living again as their countrymen in Florida and other free states are now doing.
Government-funded institutions should not be holding and promoting events where the attendees’ skin color is a determining factor for admission; particularly when those attendees are school children. It’s wrong.
Punish legislators, both at the state and federal level, that won’t fight these woke companies by primarying them. Punish the companies by boycotting them and avoiding their stock. Agitate for legislators to tax them at obscene levels.
Rather, the New York Times provides a guide on the matter and asks, “Are you a person, place or thing?” before presenting neopronoun examples such as “bun/bunself,” “kitten/kittenself,” and “prin/cess/princesself.” Mine, at least right now, is besidemyself.
United will polish its woke credentials by giving its clientele what it wants most — diversity in the cockpit. United has announced that 50% of its new pilots entering training will be females or people of color.
They probably thought they’d finally come up with a school mascot so banal, so antiseptic, so plain vanilla that it couldn’t possibly offend anyone. That is, until a school official suggested that evergreen trees could conjure thoughts of black people being lynched.
In this installment of our weekly conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative examine the controversy surrounding voter ID laws, and how the recently-passed voting law in Georgia affects the larger debate.
DeSantis has clearly become the primary target of the mainstream media. They’re trying to have him replace Trump as the face of conservative America’s evil, and go after him at every opportunity. There’s only one problem: DeSantis is really, really good.
