Title: SJW Watch 2016: The Left Eats Itself in an Orouboros of Faggot Proportions
Post by: cis scum 1.0 on May 08, 2014, 03:12:55 PM
It'd probably be nice to have a megathread where we post all of those stories about ridiculous SJW bullshit, and especially backlash to them, especially when concentrating on the left eating itself. This new piece from the Guardian (slightly left of Lenin) is just fantastic

Quote
Why are so many white men trying to save the planet without the rest of us?
Climate change affects minorities and women, the elderly and the poor. But the leadership of the environmental movement is pale and male. That doesn't look like progress

Americans are regularly told that climate change is happening here and now, in real time, and that nobody will be left unscathed. Just this week as a corporate-backed disinformation campaign continued to fuel lobbying against climate science and on behalf of a failed vote on the Keystone XL pipeline, the White House released a landmark climate change report, underlining that "[c]ertain people and communities are especially vulnerable, including children, the elderly, the sick, the poor, and some communities of colour." According to the even more landmark IPCC report, that goes for the developing world and rich countries alike.

Just the other day, the National Wildlife Federation announced its new president – a white male "whiz kid". Last month, the Climate Reality Project, founded by Al Gore, replaced its female chief executive with a white man. Last November, the National Parks and Conservation Association replaced its veteran leader with another white male. The Union of Concerned Scientists is due to announce its new leader as early as next week. Spoiler alert: it's not going to be a woman.

Public opinion research in the US suggests women, Latinos, African-Americans, Asians and Native Americans are more concerned – and more directly affected – by climate change than other populations. Doesn't it make sense to include those who are most at risk in decisions about how we fight the defining challenge of our time?

Now take a look at the top executives at eight of the top 10 groups devoted to fighting that fight:

Sierra Club? White male.
Nature Conservancy? White male.
League of Conservation Voters? White male.
World Wildlife Fund? White male.
Environmental Defense Fund? White male.
Friends of the Earth? White male.
National Audubon Society? White male.
Nature Conservancy? White male.

The very top of "Big Green" is as white and male as a Tea Party meet-up. It doesn't look like change. It doesn't even look like America. So is it any wonder environmental groups are having trouble connecting with the public on climate change? Corporate and conservative funding of climate denial is one thing, but it's beyond past time for the leaders of this movement to look at how their choice in leadership is affecting their strategy and messaging.

It's not as if there haven't been opportunities: the last few years have seen a generational change as more and more founding activists of the 1970s have retired. But rather than embrace the turnover as a chance to make change, we have exceptions to the old-white-man rule:

  •     The Natural Resources Defence Council has a woman president in Frances Beinecke, but she just announced her retirement.
  •     Greenpeace on Tuesday chose the well-known activist Annie Leonard as their president. Women also lead at Environment America, Defenders of Wildlife and Rainforest Action Network. And not to knock their leadership, but those are much smaller organizations. They are far from the top when it comes to getting money from donor foundations – which tend to be headed by white males, too – and operate on smaller budgets. They are also less likely than Big Green groups to get the access to White House officials who would help them shape climate policy.
  •     Women and minority candidates have been applying for those top jobs, in some cases getting shortlisted. And they have been getting the top environmental jobs in government for years: Barack Obama chose Lisa Jackson to head the Environmental Protection Agency and Steven Chu to head the Energy Department during his first team. He promoted Gina McCarthy to the top job at the EPA. Even George Bush – though he blocked action on climate change – appointed Christine Todd Whitman to head the EPA.

Set aside for a moment the equality-in-the-boardroom part. America is in the midst of a demographic transformation. By mid-century – as the effects of climate change really begin to bite – whites will no longer be the majority population. In California, Latinos became the single biggest ethnic/racial population last March.

And yet the environmental groups that are calling for sweeping changes to the economy – moving away from oil and coal to carbon-free sources of energy – seem incapable of making a transition themselves.

"The community should challenge itself in the same way that it challenges corporate America to change the business-as-usual trend," Kalee Kreider, a former environmental advisor to Al Gore, wrote me in an email. "It's well past time for the environmental movement to look more like America and the world."

That gap between activists and Americans has resulted in some bad decisions. In 2009, with Obama in the White House and Democrats controlling both houses of Congress, Big Green took a roll on the once-in-a-generation chance of trying to pass climate change legislation. Their strategy? Engage in a series of clubby, back-room negotiations with the chief executives of oil and utility companies to reach a deal that achieved some carbon cuts – while limiting the costs to big business. The insider deal suffered a spectacular collapse.

Then there's the messaging. Environmental groups are only now beginning to wake up to the idea that bombarding the public with graphs and statistics is not, on its own, going to persuade people that climate change has anything to do with their own lives.

Meanwhile, beyond Washington, and beyond the male-dominated preserves of Big Green, women activists are just getting on with the job – without that White House access or the expensive consultants paid for by the biggest of big donors.

It's worth remembering that one of the biggest victories for the environmental movement in recent years – last month's indefinite delay on the Keystone XL pipeline – was achieved thanks to the efforts of Bold Nebraska, a tiny environmental group with just three paid staffers, which assembled an unlikely coalition of ranchers, Native Americans and other activists operating in one of the country's most conservative states.

The president of Bold Nebraska who was so instrumental to that breakthrough? Why, that would be one Jane Fleming Kleeb.

Now not only are they cannibalizing shows that they like (eg GoT), but now they are even attacking the defenders and clerics of their new religion, Environmentalism.

Yo I don't know if this is the place for this but...

Yesterday Patton Oswalt tweeted a bunch of retractions of fake offensive statements that he never actually made.  I used to just assume Oswalt would be a super liberal SJW but he's constantly going after things like Salon for their bullshit.  https://twitter.com/pattonoswalt

Things like:

Patton Oswalt ‏@pattonoswalt  May 7
PLEASE disregard last Tweet. Already deleted. Transphobia is hurtful, and I'm a big fan of HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH.

Patton Oswalt ‏@pattonoswalt  May 7
Forgive me. Previous Tweet deleted. Sorry. Yes, we all know what "grape", "ape", "tape" & "cape" rhyme with. I'm an asshole.

Patton Oswalt ‏@pattonoswalt  May 7
The FUCK is wrong with me? Last Tweet deleted. The victims of the Holocaust deserve our highest respect, not penis limericks.



And people lost it on him.  Some getting angry about the tweets he never made, others saying things like that a tweet about a fake tweet containing the word rape is a rape joke.  He's been retweeting all the criticism so go on over and check it out if you care.  It starts the morning of may 7th.

My favourite response was this one:
alan rosales ‏@alanrosales26  May 7
@pattonoswalt my favorite part is how no one is taking issue with the holocaust joke.  Buzzword, pop-culture relevant outrage only, please!

Comedy Central Picks Stephen Colbert Replacement (Exclusive)
UPDATED: Larry Wilmore will host a new weeknight show, "The Minority Report," set to premiere in January

Comedy Central has found its heir for The Colbert Report.

With host Stephen Colbert departing at the end of the year in preparation for his new show at CBS, the cable network has tapped Larry Wilmore as his replacement, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. An announcement could come as early as Monday.

The 52-year-old writer-actor, who has been with Comedy Central's The Daily Show as its "Senior Black Correspondent" since 2006, will get the 11:30 p.m. half-hour starting in January. A twist on the former occupant's title, the show is called The Minority Report With Larry Wilmore.

Patton Oswalt is a liberal but he is also a comedian, and comedians need freedom of speech to make a living. Comedians can never go full SJW.

Same with Louis CK. He's a liberal with common sense, which explains why he went after common core. I wonder that if his old Opie & Anthony appearances ever get out in a big way, how that would be handled by the mainstream. One of my favorite bits is when they did slave girl role playing with some black chick.

Just a few years ago, the Democrats claimed to be the free speech party.  While there was a segment that was hellbent on destroying wrongthink, it is only very recently have they started gaining more power.  That is because for decades, the religious right was the anti-free speech group to rebel against.  Now that the anti-free speech group is Twitter/Tumblr and academia, it's going to be interesting in the next few years.  I suspect that the leftist wrongthink brigade is going to start driving away the free speech contingency.  Not enough to make up for the millions of Mexican anchor babies (see: Benny the Snake) that will more than fill their shoes but the left eating itself is going to start costing some toss up elections for Democrats, probably as early as this election cycle.

Beyonce was part of the really dumb #BanBossy campaign (apparently it's a terrible and stifling word destroying the future of so many young women, but using bitch in every three seconds is empowering), and well that's not endearing her with feminists

Quote
Feminist writer bell hooks caused quite a stir this week during a panel discussion at the New School in which she called Beyoncé a terrorist.

While discussing the artist’s recent Time Magazine cover with Janet Mock, hooks said, “Then you are saying, from my deconstructive point of view, that she is colluding in the construction of herself as a slave. I see a part of Beyoncé that is in fact anti-feminist — that is a terrorist, especially in terms of the impact on young girls.”

Hooks’ comment has sparked spirited disagreement among black feminist scholars online. Fusion captured some of the conversation:

Feminista Jones, black feminist writer:

    “Beyoncé is very much in control of her image, meticulously so actually. She makes decisions about how she is presented and I’m with Ms. Mock-I believe Beyoncé presents herself in ways that make her most comfortable and happy.”

I caught this guy's standup once, and there is no way this show works. He doesn't go for laughs, he goes for nodding and applause from liberals. At least Colbert isn't above sacrificing the message for a good hard gut laugh. This dude is basically "AM I RIGHT, FOLKS?" incarnate.

Yeah, Beyonce turning into some feminist icon was one of the strangest moments in 2013.  A chick who spent the past 15 years singing/warbling about getting nailed, bleaching her skin to look as white as possible, and performing at private shows thrown by third world dictators is somehow the new face of feminism.  I'm guessing the push was made because they wanted a pretty face to represent feminism, not unlike hiring prostitutes to protest for FEMEN and PETA using nude models.  They realized that sex sells but a 5'4" 240 lb shebeast with a mustache is not going to win many converts over.

Beyonce already failed at left-friendly black representation because she has passing privilige, embraces white standards of beauty, has a high attachment rate with white men in terms of attractiveness, and other things that put her on the same shitlist as Tyra and Halle, so trying to be femme-friendly was the next best thing, but once again, her experiences as a black feminist don't mean shit to them unless she looks like Lupita

To be fair, the push for Beyonce to be the new face of feminism was done by Sheryl Sandberg, a white Jew who has been dumping millions of dollars in flailing feminist campaigns.  I don't think black feminism as a whole cosigned Beyonce, especially if the woman behind the woman is a white feminist.

BBC sacks veteran DJ after 32 years for playing 'The Sun Has Got His Hat On'. . . because he accidentally played original version which includes the 'N' word

    David Lowe, 68, gave 32 years of service to the BBC as a local broadcaster
    But he lost his golden oldies show on Radio Devon for innocent mistake
    Mr Lowe innocently played a 1932 version of The Sun Has Got His Hat On
    He didn't realise that the original version features the N-word
    One listener complained, and Mr Lowe offered to apologise on air
    But the BBC refused and insisted that he 'fall on his sword' by quitting

The BBC was accused of ‘appalling’ double standards last night after forcing a veteran DJ to quit after he innocently played an old version of The Sun Has Got His Hat On which featured the ‘N’ word.

David Lowe was ordered by bosses to ‘fall on your sword’ – even though Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson kept his job when he appeared to mumble exactly the same racist term.

Mr Lowe lost his job after playing a 1932 version of the song, performed by Ambrose & His Orchestra, on his Sunday night golden oldies show on BBC Radio Devon.

Unknown to Mr Lowe, a popular presenter who has spent 32 years with the BBC, the second
verse features the line: ‘He’s been tanning n****** out in Timbuktu, now he’s coming back to do the same to you.’
The BBC took action after just one listener complained to say he was ‘horrified’ by what he heard.But last night the Corporation faced a storm of protest over its treatment of the 68-year-old host, who had immediately offered to apologise on air when he realised his ‘genuine error’.Friends and colleagues rallied to his support, while fans used Twitter to express their incredulity.

Roy Corlett, Mr Lowe’s former boss at BBC Radio Devon, said: ‘To end David’s career in this way when Clarkson was given a rap on the knuckles is absolutely appalling. It is an outrageous way to treat a loyal and distinguished employee. You couldn’t wish to meet a nicer man.’

BBC sacks veteran DJ after 32 years for playing 'The Sun Has Got His Hat On'. . . because he accidentally played original version which includes the 'N' word

    David Lowe, 68, gave 32 years of service to the BBC as a local broadcaster
    But he lost his golden oldies show on Radio Devon for innocent mistake
    Mr Lowe innocently played a 1932 version of The Sun Has Got His Hat On
    He didn't realise that the original version features the N-word
    One listener complained, and Mr Lowe offered to apologise on air
    But the BBC refused and insisted that he 'fall on his sword' by quitting

The BBC was accused of ‘appalling’ double standards last night after forcing a veteran DJ to quit after he innocently played an old version of The Sun Has Got His Hat On which featured the ‘N’ word.

David Lowe was ordered by bosses to ‘fall on your sword’ – even though Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson kept his job when he appeared to mumble exactly the same racist term.

Mr Lowe lost his job after playing a 1932 version of the song, performed by Ambrose & His Orchestra, on his Sunday night golden oldies show on BBC Radio Devon.

Unknown to Mr Lowe, a popular presenter who has spent 32 years with the BBC, the second
verse features the line: ‘He’s been tanning n****** out in Timbuktu, now he’s coming back to do the same to you.’
The BBC took action after just one listener complained to say he was ‘horrified’ by what he heard.But last night the Corporation faced a storm of protest over its treatment of the 68-year-old host, who had immediately offered to apologise on air when he realised his ‘genuine error’.Friends and colleagues rallied to his support, while fans used Twitter to express their incredulity.

Roy Corlett, Mr Lowe’s former boss at BBC Radio Devon, said: ‘To end David’s career in this way when Clarkson was given a rap on the knuckles is absolutely appalling. It is an outrageous way to treat a loyal and distinguished employee. You couldn’t wish to meet a nicer man.’

HEre's the thing about priviliege checking:
When you are debating the solutions to complex problems, thinking about preconceived notions and how they might affect your views is a good thing. Teaching people how to think about how their life has shaped their views and to understand how people might have different views because of the events in their life is a good critical thinking methodology to teach.

The issue is that its always "You're white and that's bad" - of course that's now "You're white, male, straight and cis not mentally ill enough to want to hack off your genitals and that's bad and so are you.". No spic, chinks, niggers, bitches, cunts, or self-centered queers are required to check their privilege and think about how the got shit they didn't deserve (like being admitted to all the ivy league schools with a mediocre SAT because you are black), or how they assume things that aren't necessarily true or universal.

There are definitely areas where men have it way better than women, and I do think it's helpful to keep these things in mind. But the thing is, I can't really imagine these people making the point of "female privilege: being far less likely to be murdered than a man" even if it's just as true.

I can't really imagine an ~academic, intellectual~ teacher who unironically uses the term 'check your privilege' using such a class for anything but creating more needless tension between genders, races, etc and basically brainwashing people into feeling more hate and self-hate than they already do.

I went to an Ivy for undergrad (neither Yale or Harvard), and it wasn't until that experience when I was exposed to any of this shit. It was eye opening and disgusting. Being the typical single-parent black kid in these scenarios, you still get everyone's "apologies" and self-hate, even if you don't fit their drug-dealing, daddy's-locked-up-and-mom's-on-drugs-and-i-didn't-learn-to-read-until-i-was-17 narrative. My freshman year, I took an intro to Womens and Gender Studies class and left that semester or quarter or w/e it was at the time really put off. The only one with any sense or hint of perspective was the professor, who actually knew her shit and wasn't afraid of the truth, even if it hurt feelings.

I'll say one thing, though. At the end of my undergrad I knew one thing:

I didn't wanna live in a hateful, racist world, but I also don't wanna live in a world where whites are castrated freaks who shake and cry every time they pay a bill on time. People just need to calm the fuck down and be people. Stop acting like nogs and troons and just be. Nobody wants to deal with anyone's shit from either side.

Not just that, but women's prison sentences are shorter in general, and I've never known a guy to be able to cry his way out of trouble. Bring this up and feminists start going on about counter balancing their lack of agency or some bullshit. The top of the privilege tree is not a rich white male CEO in his 40s, or even a daddy's money 21 year old bro. Its an attractive white woman in her early to mid 20s.

Its also worth pointing out that not all white privilege is universal. Some of it actually mislabeled middle-class privilege because most whites have self respect and try to get into the middle class instead of settling for being nigger rich lower class. But bring up any of this shit and oooo boy.
They also lack the understanding that "privilege" is a terrible word to describe it, because not everything that influences your views is a win or a gain. A poor who grew up on the streets with a drug addicted mom is better able to take care care of themselves than a middle class kid with two helicopter parents, but its really hard to say that the person who is self-sufficient is better able to take care of themselves after moving away from home because they have crack whore mom privilege.

Harvard’s Kennedy School Adds Privilege-Checking to New-Student Orientation

The wonks in training at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government will soon be subjected to a new and touchy-feely line of inquiry: Checking Your Privilege 101. In response to growing demand from student activists, administrators committed Friday to adding a class in power and privilege to its orientation program for incoming first-year students.

“We’re at one of the most powerful institutions in the world, yet we never critically examine power and privilege and what it means to have access to this power,” says Reetu Mody, a first-year masters student in public policy and a campus activist. “We’re excited to have the administration on board for training all Harvard Kennedy School first years.”

Privilege — a catchall term for the perks an individual enjoys in society because of his race, gender, or class — has been used to analyze social inequality for decades. It’s also enjoying something of a moment, thanks to social-justice bloggers and their critics, like Princeton freshman Tal Fortgang. In a viral article for the conservative Princeton Tory, Fortgang wrote that calls to “check his privilege” — that is, to consider how his good fortune might impair his ability to empathize with others in any given debate — “threaten to strike down opinions without regard for their merits” and “solely on the basis of the person that voiced them.” Being told to check his privilege is not overt reverse racism, Fortgang admitted, but it “toes the line.”

Mody has some sympathy for Fortgang and his ilk. “If what you’ve been told all your life is you’re really talented and you deserve what you have, it’s going to be really hard to find out Maybe I don’t deserve it, and all these other people equally deserve it but never even had a shot,” she says. “Schools are not giving students a space to manage that loss of identity.”

She says most of the resistance to discussing privilege comes from those who (mistakenly) believe it’s about making individuals feel guilty. That’s why Mody thinks Kennedy School of Government makes a good pilot program for institutionalized privilege-checking. For them, examining the world and your position in it isn’t just a feel-good liberal intellectual exercise; it’s a practical tool for people who hope to be leaders.

Mody and other students began to organize for privilege training in the fall, when they bonded over their shared experiences of classroom hostility toward racial critiques. (Mody herself once walked out of a class on implicit cognitive biases when the professor told her, “This isn’t a discussion about racism.”) In October, they held an HKS Speak Out, where students shared stories of racial insensitivity, and in the spring, they created a Tumblr where more students joined the conversation anonymously — crucial, Mody says, at a school where everyone plans to run for office.

“Sometimes I feel that whole topics would be glossed over or completely misunderstood if I weren’t there to share my poor minority perspective,” one contributor wrote. “I remember sitting in class first semester and thinking, ‘No wonder the policies in America are so ass backwards! Harvard policy makers have no idea what they’re talking about, no accurate historical knowledge, no personal context, and no humility or courage to simply admit they don’t know and ask someone who does.’”

Last month, they held a privilege walk: 77 students occupied the school’s courtyard, where two facilitators led a “privilege visualization exercise.”

HKS Speak Out is still deciding what the content of the orientation program will be. “The substance of the training, while still under discussion, is to prepare students to understand the broad impact of identity on their decision-making and to engage them in constructive tools for dialogue,” Mody says. She’s reluctant even to name a text she’d put on the syllabus, though she’d like to mandate faculty training in privilege and power too. She likens it to the math classes masters candidates are sent to so they can apply economic theories.“If you don’t have an understanding of sociology, political science, critical race theory, feminist critique, and revisionist history,” Mody warns, “it’s going to be very difficult to talk about certain groups’ experiences, and why these other groups continually have this advantage in society.”

On the surface, it sounds like one affirmative action hire (a black man) is attempting to elbow aside another affirmative action hire (a woman).  It's all about politics, isn't it, whether on the national stage or in an office environment.  Our once great country is looking sadder every day, and the established order is to blame.  Beyond that, you'd have to look at the character of the American people, themselves, who are notorious in their desire not to be accountable.

@Chen888 @JimJensen  In the face of limited evidence, many people insist that Jill Abrahamsen was the victim of sexism.  Yet Chen888 and others insult JimJensen for suggesting affirmative action was involved in hiring decisions.  JimJensen's evidence is that the New York Times--whose editorials explicitly endorse affirmative action--hired a female executive editor and then a black executive editor.

It is possible that race and gender factor into most New York Times newsroom personnel decisions.  If so the solution is not to become a partisan for Jill Abrahamsen or for anyone else but instead to condemn the New York Times for failing to treat people as people.

nice to see this liberal rag conducting a war on women

But if they are hurting and need to cut costs,  what makes them think others aren't in the same boat.

So once more liberals say what others should do,  and can't do what they preach.

Warning: The Literary Canon Could Make Students Squirm
By JENNIFER MEDINAMAY 17, 2014

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Should students about to read “The Great Gatsby” be forewarned about “a variety of scenes that reference gory, abusive and misogynistic violence,” as one Rutgers student proposed? Would any book that addresses racism — like “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” or “Things Fall Apart” — have to be preceded by a note of caution? Do sexual images from Greek mythology need to come with a viewer-beware label?

Colleges across the country this spring have been wrestling with student requests for what are known as “trigger warnings,” explicit alerts that the material they are about to read or see in a classroom might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans.


The warnings, which have their ideological roots in feminist thought, have gained the most traction at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where the student government formally called for them. But there have been similar requests from students at Oberlin College, Rutgers University, the University of Michigan, George Washington University and other schools.

The debate has left many academics fuming, saying that professors should be trusted to use common sense and that being provocative is part of their mandate. Trigger warnings, they say, suggest a certain fragility of mind that higher learning is meant to challenge, not embrace. The warnings have been widely debated in intellectual circles and largely criticized in opinion magazines, newspaper editorials and academic email lists.[/u]

“Any kind of blanket trigger policy is inimical to academic freedom,” said Lisa Hajjar, a sociology professor at the university here, who often uses graphic depictions of torture in her courses about war. “Any student can request some sort of individual accommodation, but to say we need some kind of one-size-fits-all approach is totally wrong. The presumption there is that students should not be forced to deal with something that makes them uncomfortable is absurd or even dangerous.”

Bailey Loverin, a sophomore at Santa Barbara, said the idea for campuswide trigger warnings came to her in February after a professor showed a graphic film depicting rape. She said that she herself had been a victim of sexual abuse, and that although she had not felt threatened by the film, she had approached the professor to suggest that students should have been warned.

Ms. Loverin draws a distinction between alerting students to material that might truly tap into memories of trauma — such as war and torture, since many students at Santa Barbara are veterans — and slapping warning labels on famous literary works, as other advocates of trigger warnings have proposed.

“We’re not talking about someone turning away from something they don’t want to see,” Ms. Loverin said in a recent interview. “People suddenly feel a very real threat to their safety — even if it is perceived. They are stuck in a classroom where they can’t get out, or if they do try to leave, it is suddenly going to be very public.”

The most vociferous criticism has focused on trigger warnings for materials that have an established place on syllabuses across the country. Among the suggestions for books that would benefit from trigger warnings are Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” (contains anti-Semitism) and Virginia Woolf’s “Mrs. Dalloway” (addresses suicide).

“Frankly it seems this is sort of an inevitable movement toward people increasingly expecting physical comfort and intellectual comfort in their lives,” said Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, a nonprofit group that advocates free speech. “It is only going to get harder to teach people that there is a real important and serious value to being offended. Part of that is talking about deadly serious and uncomfortable subjects.”

The term “trigger warning” has its genesis on the Internet. Feminist blogs and forums have used the term for more than a decade to signal that readers, particularly victims of sexual abuse, might want to avoid certain articles or pictures online.

On college campuses, proponents say similar language should be used in class syllabuses or before lectures. The issue arose at Wellesley College this year after the school installed a lifelike statue of a man in his underwear, and hundreds of students signed a petition to have it removed. Writing in The Huffington Post, one Wellesley student called it a “potentially triggering sculpture,” and petition signers cited “concerns that it has triggered memories of sexual assault amongst some students.”

Here at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in March there was a confrontation when a group of anti-abortion protesters held up graphic pictures of aborted fetuses and a pregnant professor of feminist studies tried to destroy the posters, saying they triggered a sense of fear in her. After she was arrested on vandalism, battery and robbery charges, more than 1,000 students signed a petition of support for her, saying the university should impose greater restrictions on potentially trigger-inducing content. (So far, the faculty senate has promised to address the concerns raised by the petition and the student government but has not made any policy changes.)

At Oberlin College in Ohio, a draft guide was circulated that would have asked professors to put trigger warnings in their syllabuses. The guide said they should flag anything that might “disrupt a student’s learning” and “cause trauma,” including anything that would suggest the inferiority of anyone who is transgender (a form of discrimination known as cissexism) or who uses a wheelchair (or ableism).

“Be aware of racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, cissexism, ableism, and other issues of privilege and oppression,” the guide said. “Realize that all forms of violence are traumatic, and that your students have lives before and outside your classroom, experiences you may not expect or understand.” For example, it said, while “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe — a novel set in colonial-era Nigeria — is a “triumph of literature that everyone in the world should read,” it could “trigger readers who have experienced racism, colonialism, religious persecution, violence, suicide and more.”

After several professors complained, the draft was removed from a campus website, pending a more thorough review by a faculty-and-student task force. Professors and campus administrators are expected to meet with students next fall to come up with a more comprehensive guide.

Meredith Raimondo, Oberlin’s associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said the guide was meant to provide suggestions, not to dictate to professors. An associate professor of comparative American studies and a co-chairwoman of the task force, Ms. Raimondo said providing students with warnings would simply be “responsible pedagogical practice.”

“I quite object to the argument of ‘Kids today need to toughen up,’ ” she said. “That absolutely misses the reality that we’re dealing with. We have students coming to us with serious issues, and we need to deal with that respectfully and seriously.”

But Marc Blecher, a professor of politics and East Asian studies at Oberlin and a major critic of trigger warnings at Oberlin, said such a policy would have a chilling effect on faculty members, particularly those without the job security of tenure.

“If I were a junior faculty member looking at this while putting my syllabus together, I’d be terrified,” Mr. Blecher said. “Any student who felt triggered by something that happened in class could file a complaint with the various procedures and judicial boards, and create a very tortuous process for anyone.”


On one hand I want to :razor: at that bullshit, but on the other hand I'm so happy to see all of these pozzed university teachers who are now backpedaling and furiously trying to change the tide now that they've realized they are going to engulfed and destroyed by their own creations. They are taking what they taught them to their logical extant, and teachers are really not happy about it.

Because these failures believe life is a zero sum game.  If a white man did well, that obviously meant that a minority got fucked over.  So if whites start self flagellating, then obviously minorities will start doing better.

I watched the video CK linked then decided to watch the other videos in that series. I'm up to the part about how even the White Privilege Conference is oppressive because white people are there and how you absolutely need segregation because  "people of color have to deal with the suffering, pain and grief they've felt over experiencing white supremacy, even in this context" :tuss: (the person who said this, and was also tricked into saying "rape is not inherently bad" because she's an idiot, was just listed as a "White Ally" in the video, but she's actually Abby L. Ferber, Huffington Post writer, book author and one of the organizers of the conference) and holy shit this just gets worse and worse. Same video also had a professor with dyed purple hair who equated capitalism with "heteronormativity", so I guess if a guy likes dicks and is a capitalist that means he suffers from internalized homophobia.

As someone who still espouses liberal values I find it annoying as shit that this ELITE, ACADEMIC mind-masturbation is actually considered something that helps disadvantaged minorities. If all these fucking people got together to think of ways to actually help out, say, children born in poverty who need to eat their own shit to survive, they might actually have managed to help out; but I guess that's not as important as vague navel-gazing theories about how "the modern sense of self and individuality is a white construct" or whatever the shit.

The same applies to internet social justice. All the money that went into Anita Sarkeesian's pockets could have been used to literally save lives.

Adam Carolla Says He Called Out NPR’s Attempt to ‘Ambush’ Him in Truly Epic Fashion: ‘We’ll See If He Has the Balls to Air It’


In preparation for an interview with Adam Carolla, NPR allegedly dug up what the news outlet thought would be controversial audio from the comedian’s podcast. It was apparently a recording of someone doing a highly stereotypical Asian voice.
Source: AdamCarolla.com

Adam Carolla and Jo Koy (Source: AdamCarolla.com)

Carolla says NPR thought it was him. It wasn’t.

The person behind the voice was actually comedian Jo Koy, who just happens to be Asian. Carolla revealed on his podcast Monday that he wasn’t shy about calling out NPR for the poorly planned “gotcha” attempt.

“I said, ‘Well, I appreciate you trying to ambush me, but that wasn’t me. That’s Jo Koy, who happens to be Asian, and the guy, he muttered… ‘Well, that helps.’ We’ll see if he has the balls to air it,” Carolla said.

He also claimed he told NPR to “do your research next time” they want to interview him and insinuate he is racist. The comedian did not identify who at NPR conducted the interview.

It will be interesting to see if that particular segment is included in the NPR interview, which Carolla says has yet to air.

Carolla also addressed his interview with left-leaning Salon.com, which pressed him on the racial makeup of comedians and his feelings about gays. He said it has become common that news outlets attempt to “ambush” him during interviews.

“It’s incredible that you’re doing a finger-pointing thing about you and your stereotypes, but you’re constantly working in the ‘white male’ part,” Carolla said, reflecting on his recent interviews. “I cleaned out f***ing garbage on a construction site. For the love of f***ing christ, I cleaned carpets before that.”

“By the way, I’m you’re worst nightmare. I’m the guy whose mom was on welfare, I’m the guy who got the free lunch meals over at the school, I’m the guy who got the government cheese, and I’m the guy who picked up garbage on the construction sites, and I’m the guy who was told, ‘you can’t be an L.A. fireman because you’re a white male’ … So don’t try to paint me into this white privilege bulls**t … I’m never going to buy into it, I lived it!”

‘You Have Become What You Hated’: Comedian Explodes on Progressive Left Over Censorship and Hypersensitivity

Radio hosts Gregg “Opie” Hughes, Anthony Cumia and comedian Jim Norton, of the popular “Opie and Anthony Show” on SiriusXM, went on a fiery tirade Tuesday against “trigger warnings” and the current culture on college campuses, which they argue is producing childish adults unprepared to deal with the “real world.”
Why the Hosts of Popular ‘Opie and Anthony Show’ Are Fed Up With the Progressive Left

NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 17: Anthony Cumia, Greg ‘Opie’ Hughes and Ron Bennington SiriusXM’s O&A20: Unmasked With Opie & Anthony Special Celebrates 20 Years Of Opie & Anthony at Carolines On Broadway on April 17, 2014 in New York City. Cindy Ord/Getty Images for SiriusXM

Norton also scolded the progressive left for becoming “exactly what you hated.”

“You have become exactly [like] the conservative, religious book burners of the 40s and the 50s and the 60s. You are it!” he said. “You are the speech repressors, you are the hypersensitive ones, you are the ones who want people fired immediately, you are the ones calling for people’s jobs. You have become what you hated.”


The discussion that preluded his rant got heated after Norton brought up a recent story out of Wellesley College where “hundreds” of outraged college students objected after a lifelike sculpture of a sleepwalking man in his underwear was erected on campus. Students ended up creating a petition to have it removed.

“Oh my god,” Hughes responded. “We are raising a nation of pu***es, we’ve been saying it for years.”

In another example, Oberlin College in Ohio and other colleges have considered putting “trigger warnings” in college reading materials so that students don’t get upset or offended about controversial material. The New York Times recently reported that the warnings have “ideological roots in feminist thought.”

The warnings seek to shield students who may take offense from any racism, sexism, ableism, classism and other forms of potential discrimination or oppression.

“It’s really embarrassing this place the culture is in — there’s just no honesty in it,” Norton said.

“These little f***ing children are so afraid of reading about something unpleasant because it may trigger unpleasant feelings,” the comedian added. “They are coddled, hair-patted little babies.”

Hughes cringed thinking about what would have happened when he was a student if he had raised his hand and said, “I can’t read this, it’s triggering some emotions.”

“The teacher would tell you to shut your f***ing mouth, sit down and listen — and then you’d get home and get smacked,” Cumia joked.

Mayor Who Told Bullying Victims to ‘Grow a Pair’ Is Refusing to Back Down: ‘Enough’s Enough’

California Mayor Cameron Hamilton has some blunt advice for those who are being bullied: “Grow a pair.”

“I’m against bullying, but I’m getting damn tired of it being used as a mantra for everything and the ills of the world, when most people have to just grow a pair and stick up for them damn selves,” the Porterville mayor said at a city council meeting last week.

CNN describes the mayor as “looking and talking like an Old West figure,” and he’s not backing down despite claims that his comments were homophobic.

“My sister is a lesbian and, as I have told the gay community, I think that when you reduce somebody to their sexuality, that’s the only identifying factor that you give them — my sister is so much more than that, and so are the rest of the gay people that I know,” the mayor told Glenn Beck on Wednesday. “We’ve got to get past this sexuality thing.”

Hamilton said proposed safe zones for bullying victims offer an “illusion of safety at best,” because “sooner or later you’ve got to come out of that safe zone … and the world is going to be there again to look you straight in the face and say, ‘I’m going to bully you because you’re going to allow me to.’”

He rejected the notion that standing up to bullies leads to violence, saying “growing a pair” could mean verbally standing up to bullies or getting together with your peers and making it clear that such behavior will no longer be tolerated.

“I will not step back from my way of talking,” Hamilton said. “I will not say that we don’t need to stand up because we actually do. More people are coming on to the story across the nation with the same value that I have, and saying, ‘enough’s enough.’”

The thing to remember when it comes to liberals and SJW types is to never apologize to them.  Apologies only matter to them insofar as using it to further shame you, drag you through the mud, etc.

Case in point: 
Paula Dean, however you may feel about her, admitted in a deposition to saying "nigger".  In the deposition she was asked if she had ever used the N word.  She responded with yes, and explained that, now get this, when she worked as a teller at a bank, a black man came in with a gun, robbed them, put the gun up to her head, and all that jazz.
She admitted to calling this man a nigger.  This is what SJW retards were up in arms about.  No matter that any self respecting black person, or any person for that matter, would call a black man who robs people at gun point a nigger.  Paula Dean apologized profusely on multiple cable news shows and morning shows.  It didn't matter.  It only got worse for her because the apology was never the point.  The media used her as a spectacle.  She was the embodiment of white guilt to them.  The apology was just entertainment to them, like a cat playing with a wounded mouse desperately trying to escape its cruel claws.  Reminder, she was the victim of a violent crime, but this was of no consequence, because if you're white and the victim of a violent crime committed by a black person, you don't matter, unless you called the attacker a nigger, in which case it's your fault and you deserved it.

Also, SJWs and their ilk are at their core, cowards. All it takes to defeat them is to tell them to shut the fuck up and it's enough to send them scurrying to their safe spaces.

So Mark Cuban is getting a lot more defense from prominent black people than I anticipated.  There are still thousands of screeching SJW idiots calling him a horrible racist but a lot of very smart people are defending him.

I wonder why he got such a light sentence from the SJW folk.


Edit:  Oh nevermind, I googled "Mark Cuban Jewish" and got my answer

Mark Cuban Apologizes to Trayvon Martin’s Family For ‘Black Kid in a Hoodie’ Comment
The Dallas Mavericks owner is backtracking part of his comments about race and bigotry in U.S. during a candid interview with Inc. Magazine at a Nashville Conference


Dallas Mavericks owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban issued an apology via Twitter Thursday for statements he made during an interview about race and prejudice with Inc. Magazine.

Cuban admitted during a candid conversation about embattled L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling that he holds his own prejudices.

“If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it’s late at night, I’m walking to the other side of the street,” Cuban said during the interview, published Wednesday. “And if on that side of the street there’s a guy who has tattoos all over his face, white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere, I’m walking back to the other side of the street.”

Cuban became the target of Twitter backlash Thursday as many interpreted his comment about a “black kid in a hoodie” as reference to the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. The billionaire owner issued a Twitter apology to the Martin family on Thursday, saying it probably wasn’t the most appropriate example.

“In hindsight, I should have used different examples,” Cuban tweeted. “I didn’t consider the Trayvon Martin family and I apologize to them for that.”

He added, “beyond apologizing to the Martin family, I stand by the words and substance of the interview.”

Here is the offending quote. Note the incredibly problematic and dire use of everyday fucking guy talk.

Quote

    Craig Mazin: The real name for She-Hulk was Slut-Hulk. That was the whole point. Let's just make this green chick with enormous boobs. And she's Hulk strong but not Hulk massive, right? … She's real lean, stringy…

    David S. Goyer: She's still pretty chunky. She was like Chyna from the WWE.

    Mazin: The whole point of She-Hulk was just to appeal sexistly to ten-year-old boys. Worked on me.

    Goyer: I have a theory about She-Hulk. Which was created by a man, right? And at the time in particular I think 95% of comic book readers were men and certainly almost all of the comic book writers were men. So the Hulk was this classic male power fantasy. It's like, most of the people reading comic books were these people like me who were just these little kids getting the shit kicked out of them every day… And so then they created She-Huk, right? Who was still smart… I think She-Hulk is the chick that you could fuck if you were Hulk, you know what I'm saying? … She-Hulk was the extension of the male power fantasy. So it's like if I'm going to be this geek who becomes the Hulk then let's create a giant green porn star that only the Hulk could fuck.

I'm literally shaking I have not seen language this brutal since a high school cafeteria.

I think a lot of this stuff is less about self-esteem BS and more about trying to calm down parents living vicariously through their kids.  I remember playing organized sports as a kid and every year there was at least one insane parent screaming about ripping some kids head off for bumping into their kid in a contact sport.

Imagine how bad that shit must be in black neighborhoods btw.  Filled with people betting,, grunting and screaming at children, going IN YO FACE NIGGA when their sociopath-in-training intentionally knocks out a kid half his size, etc..

I ‘Don’t Give a Damn’: Popular ESPN Commentator Goes on EPIC Rant About Mark Cuban and Race After Being Labeled an ‘Uncle Tom’

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith refused to backdown on Friday after he came under fire for defending Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s comments about bigotry in a recent interview. Despite being labeled an “Uncle Tom” and a “sellout” by some in the black community, Smith made it clear that he stands by what he said “100-fold.”

“‘Stephen A. Smith is a sellout,’ ‘Stephen A. Smith is an Uncle Tom,’ ‘Stephen A. Smith ain’t black,’ ‘you ain’t one of us’ — these are the kinds of things that were said to me yesterday,” Smith said on ESPN’s “First Take” Friday.

Regardless, he said he doesn’t care who disagrees with him and they would be smart not to expect an apology.

(ESPN)

“When I say I don’t give a damn… that does it no justice,” Smith said. “I stand by everything that I said yesterday tenfold, 100-fold. And I don’t care who in the black community disagrees with me — I’m not interested in their disagreement on this particular issue because they are not looking at the bigger picture here.”

While Cuban did say he’d “cross the street” if he saw a black kid in a hoodie at night, he also said “in the same breath” that he’d have reservations about a bald guy with tattoos all over his body, he continued.

“Everybody wants to ignore that,” Smith said. “I don’t want to say everybody because I’m not speaking for everybody. … We want to pounce on him making this statement and alluding the black folks or talking about somebody in a hoodie that happens to be black… He talked about the prejudices that exist in all spectrums by all of us. Are we going to sit here and literally act like we don’t have any prejudices?”

Smith went on to argue that what Cuban said is “100 percent correct.” The commentator also addressed the “elephant in the room,” which he said many white people won’t talk about out of fear of being labeled “racist.”

“I look at our unemployment rate consistently being double that of folks in white America. I do understand that, to some degree, there’s a level of racism that we all have to overcome… but that doesn’t mean every single issue is race related,” he said. “Sometimes it is about how you represent yourself, it is about how you present yourself.”

He wasn’t even close to done:

    “When I talk about not having a command of the English language, and still you want a job, and you want to have a career, but you don’t want to get your education, you don’t want to go out there and pound that pavement. Everything’s about the sprint, it’s not about the marathon, it’s not about you putting forth the necessary effort and due diligence over the long haul to get the thing you need. That’s a reality in our community.”

Smith also explained that not everyone in the black community can be Lebron James, Jay Z or Dwayne Wade — because they are “special.”

The rappers and professional athletes don’t represent the real “American dream,” they represent a “fantasy turned reality,” he added. Rather, Smith said he looks at himself as a good representation of that dream.

“Queens, New York City, left back in the fourth grade, grew up poor, the lever of education that I had was a public school system, I ultimately graduate from high school, I go to a historically black institution like Winston-Salem State University, I graduate with honors, there is no journalism program, I still graduate with honors, I still beat out thousands of people to get an internship… and I’m on national TV everyday.”

This is pro-watch as fuck, best black real talk I've seen in a while

Well of course!  Goons have this childish thought process where any differing opinion is simply "wrong".  No matter how well a person defends their position, if it is against goonthink, they label the person "mean" and "terrible".  They are evil and must be banned!  We can't entertain such thoughts!

What that means is telling off cis bigots for sneering at the fetishes of proud transwomyn wanting to be shit on.  Literally.  It's the latest thing by the ultrapozzed to try to shame the shamers.  Be loud and proud about your disgusting fetishes.  Now Zeitgueist can feel proud about getting off on beating black women and Fire can feel proud about jerking it to Princess Maker games.

Let’s say L and D are friends.  L is sex repulsed.  D is not.

If D mentions their sexual exploits and L says, “EW, GROSS, HOW CAN YOU DO THAT?  UGH, I’M GONNA VOMIT,” that’s L yucking D’s yum.  L shouldn’t do that, because it’s rude.

Also the below image is very, very real.  I pulled it from this site: http://humboldt.edu/events/2014/03/01/3445/  I think we're reaching peak poz at an accelerated rate.  Leftist sexuality continues to further integrate with children and childlike things.

Double post because pozzed shit keeps popping up on my radar.

The latest tumblr craze: don't yuck my yum

What that means is telling off cis bigots for sneering at the fetishes of proud transwomyn wanting to be shit on.  Literally.  It's the latest thing by the ultrapozzed to try to shame the shamers.  Be loud and proud about your disgusting fetishes.  Now Zeitgueist can feel proud about getting off on beating black women and Fire can feel proud about jerking it to Princess Maker games.

Let’s say L and D are friends.  L is sex repulsed.  D is not.

If D mentions their sexual exploits and L says, “EW, GROSS, HOW CAN YOU DO THAT?  UGH, I’M GONNA VOMIT,” that’s L yucking D’s yum.  L shouldn’t do that, because it’s rude.

Also the below image is very, very real.  I pulled it from this site: http://humboldt.edu/events/2014/03/01/3445/  I think we're reaching peak poz at an accelerated rate.  Leftist sexuality continues to further integrate with children and childlike things.

the way she phrases it, i cant tell if she believes that being fat is a protected choice she's exercising (like owning a gun) or if she believes she has no control over it.  the rest of the things she lists are kind of protected concepts (abortion, owning a corporation, no one can force her into marriage).  Maybe she is subtly acknowledging that she's fat by choice?

Mich. teacher suspended over blackface lesson plan

A community is outraged after a Michigan public school teacher was removed from the classroom for showing a video of white entertainers in blackface.

District officials are looking into whether 59-year-old Alan Barron's lesson plan on African-American history and Jim Crow racial segregation laws was inappropriate.

The Monroe News reports that Barron showed a video of how white people used blackface to imitate African Americans during what they considered entertainment in the 1800s. According to parents whose children are in the eighth-grade class, the administrator thought the lesson plan was offensive and racist.

Parent Adrienne Aaron, whose husband is African American, told The Monroe News her daughter was not offended and that she felt that the subject needs to be discussed.

"She was more offended that they stopped the video," Aaron said of her daughter. "It had nothing to do with racism. History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we've come in America. How is that racism?"

Many parents and students are supporting Barron, who is retiring at the end of this school year after 36 years in the classroom.

During his suspension, Mr. Barron is not allowed to attend district functions, including an annual banquet where retiring teachers are honored.

Fair enough, but it's just idiotic to be pissed by an objective display of the past.

Slavery and genocide are considered bad by a majority of humanity, but they are part of the past and still happen in the present, and to be offended by a mere discussion of their occurrence is just pathetic political correctness gone mad.

I already don't like SJWs, but this when even they go full retard (by their standards), and this sort of faggotry is why the poz meter of society has exploded through the roof as of late.

This looks like too huge of a coincidence to me, especially since somebody at the school saw fit to mention it to the journalist.

I'm going to be a cynicist and wonder if the administrator had a longstanding beef with the teacher and looked for the pettiest, most humiliating possible excuse to deny him his presence at the ceremony.

Of course, the mere fact that the administrator could believe it might pass as a remotely plausible excuse would be shameful enough in itself.

Just using myself as an example, the overwhelming majority of my ancestors were German immigrants that arrived in the US and Mexican Texas in the early 1800s and never owned slaves. My family fought for their new home in the Texas Revolution, and again to defend Texas during the Civil War, so 149 years on what should I be responsible for exactly? We were never major landowners, and none of them were rich by any means. A lot of American whites come from people and families like this.

It's been 150 years since slavery ended and we've sort of come to a "What the fuck more do you want from us?" situation from most whites, and a lot of black "leaders" continue to race pimp because it's lucrative and keeps them in positions of power. Some of the founders were slaveholders and some were abolitionist. Blackface was a thing that happened and people should probably learn about it. But things are so shitty and backwards socially that even discussing the past in a realist, academic fashion is "racist" now.

Too many people still hold on to the history of Slavery in this country as some histrionic force driving their demands for ever expanding government subsidies like its going out of fucking style. So if they don't want to talk about Slavery or especially inconsequential bulllshit like blackface in public schools as much as they used to then I'm all for it. Gen Y is already beyond fucked anyway with the poz but it still couldn't hurt.

I suspect that this is probably what happened.  If you know anything about teaching and how schools work now, you would know it's quite hard to fire teachers, especially in a unionized state like Michigan.  This guy had tenure and was essentially impossible to fire at this point.  He's probably been useless for years given that he's been teaching for 36 years.  They have likely been building a case for years against this guy.  Hell even in a right to work state like Texas where teachers don't have tenure, it's still hard to fire useless teachers.  My wife complains about it all the time since she's a department head at her school.

No, I mean right to work http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right-to-work_law (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right-to-work_law) where Teachers are NOT required to join the union.

Although Michigan is on the list as well. 

At will employment just means that you can be fired for any reason, which is not true in teaching, where even though employment is contractual based, a lot of documentation is required to not renew someone's contract.

Like 25% easy was just watching the clock and they could never be fired unless they fucked a kid. I'm not talking about just bad at the job teachers but serious clock watchers.

My mom was a teacher and between her and what I saw as a consumer at one of the best the public school system can offer its the union that was the cancer. There was plenty of money for books etc but those bad teachers could never be dislodged due to the union.

One of my history teachers in HS only gave us 2 homework assignments and 1 test each quarter. So if you didn't turn any Homework in, you failed the class. Still, she was lazy as fuck.

I didn't go to a top school.  Most of the teachers there were worthless and just did not give a shit if anyone learned anything.  To be sure, there were some teachers who did care greatly but they were vastly outnumbered by the clock watchers.  Napster (shows you how old I am) was allowed on the computers there so you had teachers downloading music and then playing it.  Unfortunately there weren't many attractive teachers that you could fantasize about fucking either.  A bad experience overall :myecred:

Still beats going to a small town school.  You didn't even get the few teachers who cared; everyone was related to each other and their focus was watching each other's asses and clinging to what sports they were good at than actually teaching anything.  I was a smart kid but was way behind the other kids at a low quality city school and took a little bit of time to catch up.

relevant excerpt [sic] from http://slatestarcodex.com/2014/04/22/right-is-the-new-left/

Quote
A friend recently pointed out that conservatives aren’t, on average, very smart. He illustrated this with a graph of IQ vs. political belief which confirms that the left has a significant advantage.

But I look at my Facebook feed, and here is what I observe.

I see my high school classmates – a mostly unselected group of the general suburban California population – posting angry left stuff like “Ohmigod I just heard about that mayor in South Carolina WHAT A FUCKING BIGGOT!!!”

I see the people I think of as my intellectual equals posting things that are conspicuously nuanced – “Oh, I heard about that guy in South Carolina. Instead of knee-jerk condemnation, let’s try to form some general principles out of it and see what it teaches us about civil society.”

And I see the people I think of as the level above me posting extremely bizarre libertarian-conservative screeds making use of advanced mathematics that I can barely understand: “The left keeps saying that marriage as an institution isn’t important. But actually, if we look at this from a game theoretic perspective, marriage and social trust and forager values are all in this complicated six-dimensional antifragile network, and it emergently coheres into a beneficial equilibrium if and only if the government doesn’t try to shift the position of any of the nodes. Just as three eighteenth-century Frenchmen and a renegade Brazilian Marxist philosopher predicted. SO HOW COME THE IDIOTS ON THE LEFT KEEPS TRYING TO MAKE GOVERNMENT SHIFT THE POSITION OF THE NODES ALL THE TIME???!”

(I will proceed to describe this level extensionally: Jonathan Haidt, Bowling Alone, time discounting, public choice theory, the Hajnal line, contract law, Ross Douthat, incentives, polycentric anything, unschooling, exit rights)

And, I mean, I know the reason I get so many people trying to come up with bizarre mathematizations of politics is because those are the sorts of people I select as my friends. The part I don’t get is why so many of them end up weird libertarian-conservative. Certainly not because I selected them for that. I don’t even think they were weird libertarian-conservatives a few years ago when I met a lot of them. It just seems to have caught on.

And my theory is that in a world where the upper class wears black and the lower class wears white, they’re the people who have noticed that the middle class is wearing black as well, and have decided to wear white to differentiate themselves.

It’s the reverse of the 1950s. Assume you’re a hip young intellectual in the 1950s. You see all these stodgy conservatives around you – I don’t even know what “stodgy” means, I just know I’m legally obligated to use it to describe 1950s conservatives. You see Mrs. Grundy, chattering to her grundy friends about how scandalous it is that some people read books about sex, lecturing to the school board on how they had better enforce her values on the children or she will have some very harsh words to say to them.

And you think “Whatever else I am, I’m not going to be a mediocrity like Mrs. Grundy. I’m not going to conform.” Which, in the 1950s, meant you became a leftist, and talked about how stodgy society was fundamentally oppressive, and how you were going to value different things, and screw what Mrs. Grundy thought.

And gradually this became sufficiently hip that even the slightly less hip intellectuals caught on and started making fun of Mrs. Grundy, and then people even less hip than that, until it became a big pileup on poor Mrs. Grundy and anyone who wanted even the slightest claim to intellectual independence or personal integrity has to prove themselves by giving long dissertations on how terrible Mrs. Grundy is.

But when Mrs. Grundy herself joins the party, what then?

I mean, take that article on Dartmouth. A group of angry people, stopping just short of violence, invade a school building and make threats against the president unless he meets their demands. Every student must be forced to attend moral instruction classes inculcating their (the protesters’) values. Offensive terms must be removed from the library. And the school must take care to admit people of the right race. When was the last time you could hear a story like that and have it be even slightly probably that the mob was rightist?

It’s hard to argue that Mrs. Grundy is not a proud leftist by now, still chattering about how scandalous it is that people read books with the wrong values, still giving her terminally uncool speeches to the school board about how they had better enforce her values on the children (and if she can get the debate society on board as well, so much the better).

There must be overwhelming temptation among hip intellectuals to differentiate themselves from Mrs. Grundy by shifting rightward.

And perhaps so far this has been kept in check by the second rule of our cellular automaton – you can’t take a position that would get you plausibly confused for a person of lower class than you.

I was tickled by a conversation between two doctors I recently heard in a hospital hallway:

Doctor 1: My daughter just got a full scholarship into a really good university in Georgia.
Doctor 2: Congratulations!
Doctor 1: Thanks! But I’m hoping she’ll choose somewhere closer to home.
Doctor 2: Why? Because you want to be able to visit her more?
Doctor 1: There’s that. But the other problem is that the South is full of those people.
Doctor 2: So? Colleges are like their own world. Your daughter probably won’t even encounter many of them.
Doctor 1: I know. But I keep worrying that just by being there, she’ll make friends with them, and then end up bringing one home as a boyfriend.


“Those people” is my replacement, not the original term used by the doctor involved. The doctor involved said a much less polite word.

She said “fundies”.

Fundies – in all of their Bible-beating gun-owning cousin-marrying stereotypicalness – have so far served as the Lower Class With Which One Must Not Allow One’s Self To Be Confused. But I think that’s changing. Sorting mechanisms are starting to work so well that, at the top, the fundies just aren’t plausible. In our model, people from class N can be confused with class N-1, but never with class N-2. But as the barber-pole movement of fashion creeps downward, fundies are starting to become two classes below certain people at the top, and those people no longer risk misidentification.

I notice that, no matter how many long rants against feminism I write, everyone continues to assume I am a feminist. It’s like, “He doesn’t make too many spelling errors, his writing isn’t peppered with racial slurs – he’s got to be a feminist. He probably just forgot the word ‘not’ in each of his last 228 sentences.”

And I wonder if maybe the reason why I am outraged by the debate team but not by the South Carolina mayor isn’t that I feel a greater threat from the debate team, but because I feel like there is a greater threat of me being mistaken for the debate team.
If impotent expressions of outrage divorced from any effort to change things are ways of saying “I’m not like this! I promise!” And I get less outraged than some other people about South Carolina because I feel confident enough in my intelligence that I don’t worry anyone will mistake me for a fundie. But I feel less confident no one could mistake me for the sort of person who judged those debate championships, so I need to shout at them to show I’m Not Like That. This would actually explain a lot.

If some intellectuals no longer need to worry about being mistaken for fundies, that frees them to finally breath a sigh of relief and start making fun of Mrs. Grundy again. And that means they’ve got to become conservatives, or libertarians, or anything, anything at all, except for leftists.

So far it is just a few early adopters – the intellectual equivalent of the very trendy people who start wearing some outrageous fashion and no one knows if it is going to catch on or whether they will be soundly mocked for it.

And they are having a really difficult time, because a lot of conservative ideas aren’t that great. Like, reality leaves you a lot of degrees of freedom when you’re deciding your political self-presentation, but it doesn’t leave you an infinite number of degrees of freedom, and the project of creating something that is both anti-leftist enough to serve as a fashion statement but reality-based enough not to be dumb is still going on. The reactionaries are doing an excellent job maximizing the “anti-leftist” criterion. The “reality-based” criterion is a harder egg to crack, but it makes me think of Drew Summitt, Athrelon, and some of SarahC’s more political moments.

As the Commissioner puts it, “Evolution is at work here, but just what is evolving remains to be seen.”

When I put it like this, I realize I’m not becoming more conservative at all. I’m becoming anti-leftist. Actually, put that way a lot of people seem to be anti-leftist. I can’t think of a single specific policy proposal supported by Glenn Beck. Can you?

And I think the best explanation is that all my hip friends who I want to be like are starting to be conservative or weird-libertarian or some variety of non-leftist, and Mrs. Grundy is starting to become very obviously leftist and getting grundier by the day, and so the fashion-conscious part of my brain, the much-abused and rarely-heeded part that tells me “No, you can’t go to work in sweatpants, even though it would be much more comfortable”, is telling me “QUICK, DISENGAGE FROM UNCOOL PEOPLE AND START ACTING LIKE COOL PEOPLE RIGHT NOW.”

And I said this is my favorite of all the explanations. Why?

Because if it’s true, and it spreads beyond a couple of little subcultures, it means my worst fears are misplaced. The future isn’t a foot stamping on the face of a a college debate team forever. It’s people – or at least some people – rolling their eyes at those people and making fake vomiting noises. And then going too far, until other people have to roll their eyes at those people. And so on. Instead of a death spiral we get a pendulum, swinging back and forth.

But I would hope for something even better than that. Like, at each swing of the pendulum, people learn a little. I was really impressed with how many smart and decent people thought that the Eich thing was wrong (…and wore kilts, and played bagpipes…shut up). Fashion does not accrete, but maybe reality does. And I would like to think that the rationalist movement is a part of that. And if that’s true, that’s a way in which reality will eventually come to overpower fashion and the arc of the universe might tend toward justice after all.

Same here.  I went to one of the best public schools in the entire nation.  My history class senior year was taught by an old lady with tenure, and every day was the same.  The lesson plan was one of the following:

1)  Open your books and read the chapter while you fill out a multiple choice worksheet.  Group discussion of the assignment and sharing of answers is allowed. 
2)  Watch a movie.  Like not even PBS Documentary type movies either.  We are talking actual Hollywood movies here. 
3)  Pop Quiz!  (Open book, open note).

The teacher never once taught us anything.  It was just her sitting at her desk, drinking "coffee" out of a thermos, and watching the clock, while the class half-assedly flipped through a textbook and socialized with each other.  If you wanted to get up and go outside to get a drink of water or go to the bathroom, you didn't even need to ask permission.  It was the most worthless class I've ever had.


I also had a health class taught by the Football coach.  Every day was the same:

"Sit down, shut up, and open your books to this chapter and read it to yourself SILENTLY until the bell rings"
 :say:
 :clint:

It was literally just reading a textbook alone in complete silence for the entire period.  Once a week we had an open book quiz.  No talking of any kind, either by the class or by the teacher.

I went to one of the top 100 PUBLIC (i.e anyone living in the district goes there) high schools in country and I was shocked at how much teaching dead weight was there. Like 25% easy was just watching the clock and they could never be fired unless they fucked a kid. I'm not talking about just bad at the job teachers but serious clock watchers.

My mom was a teacher and between her and what I saw as a consumer at one of the best the public school system can offer its the union that was the cancer. There was plenty of money for books etc but those bad teachers could never be dislodged due to the union.

Same here.  I went to one of the best public schools in the entire nation.  My history class senior year was taught by an old lady with tenure, and every day was the same.  The lesson plan was one of the following:

1)  Open your books and read the chapter while you fill out a multiple choice worksheet.  Group discussion of the assignment and sharing of answers is allowed. 
2)  Watch a movie.  Like not even PBS Documentary type movies either.  We are talking actual Hollywood movies here. 
3)  Pop Quiz!  (Open book, open note).

http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2014/06/university-of-chicago-students-offended-by-gay-rights-activists-use-of-transphobic-slur.html

Quote
CHICAGO - LGBTQ students at the University of Chicago are circulating a petition objecting to slurs gay rights activist Dan Savage used during a exchange at the school's Institute of Politics event last week. They said they were made to "feel uncomfortable" by a "transphobic slur" used during Savage's presentation.

The incident occurred when, according to several sources, Savage and [the event hostess Ana Marie] Cox began discussing [Savage's] personal history as a gay man. According to a first-year student and member of the LGBTQ community who asked to be identified as Hex, Savage used the slur t—– as an example in an anecdote about reclaiming words. Cox then added, “I used to make jokes about t—-ies,” audience members recounted.

“That was one of the most hurtful parts,” Hex said, explaining the perceived insult was that Cox used the slur to refer to the group of people she joked about. “In that context, it was like being applied to all transgender people,” it said. (“It” is Hex’s chosen pronoun.)

Won't be long before tranny becomes "the t-word".  This article is so pozzed they censored it... hahaha.

There was an attempted rape scene in Louie the other day and the left-wing bloggers are either calling him a genius or declaring that they will never watch his show again.

Writing for Nerve, Beejoli Shah said she had experienced sexual assault, and wasn't interested in understanding an assailant's thought process.

“No matter how much I've respected Louis C.K.'s work until now, I'll never be watching his show again,” she wrote. “I no longer care about understanding the other side of evil,” she said. “I already understand it. I have no sympathy for it, in my life, or on screen. … Using assault as a device, simply to show a character's faults? I already knew Louie was flawed. I didn't need to know that Louis C.K. was too.”

Do you think this bitch got wet when Louis CK triggered her?

How the fuck is this controversial and revolutionary anyway?  Denis Leary had a couple of rape scenes in Rescue Me, and was raped at least 3 or 4 times (3 times he was drugged by his g/f, once by his wife while he was awake).  That shit was like 2005.

Post by: Nate Higgers on June 11, 2014, 03:11:05 PM
Here is an article that is making the rounds and causing some hindquarters to be sore:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/07/watch-what-you-say-the-new-liberal-power-elite-won-t-tolerate-dissent.html

The tl;dr edition is that basically a new 21st century elite that is based on academia, media entertainment, and high level government bureaucrats is growing in power and using its power to shut down anyone who doesn't fall in line.  This can be interpreted as the left eating itself because the new new left is being led by this one group of people who doesn't give a shit about agree to disagree.  They have their viewpoints and if you run afoul, you risk being shitcanned.

The highlights:

Quote
In ways not seen since at least the McCarthy era, Americans are finding themselves increasingly constrained by a rising class—what I call the progressive Clerisy—that accepts no dissent from its basic tenets.

Quote
The rise of today’s Clerisy stems from the growing power and influence of its three main constituent parts: the creative elite of media and entertainment, the academic community, and the high-level government bureaucracy.

Quote
the contemporary Clerisy increasingly promotes a single increasingly parochial ideology and, when necessary, has the power to marginalize, or excommunicate, miscreants from the public sphere.

Quote
The modern Clerisy’s homogeneity springs from their social conditioning. Educated along similar ideological lines at major universities, they tend to be geographically concentrated in wealthy, “progressive” places, where few dissent from the prevailing worldview. As such they breathe, as analyst Walter Russell Mead suggests, “within a cocoon.” Inside their urban cocoons they operate from a thoroughly internalized set of progressive tropes on such issues as the environment, urbanism, gender and race. In practical terms, such as in their support of President Obama and the Democratic Party, they are both broadly allied with centers of power and influence, much as the clergy was in Medieval and early modern times.

Quote
More important still is the bureaucracy’s ability to control society through unelected agencies, something that grew even during Republican administrations, but has achieved unprecedented scale under President Obama. Increasingly, agencies such as the EPA and HUD, seek to shape community development patterns—for example on land use policies —- that traditionally fell under local control. With their power, the agencies have harassed unfriendly conservative organizations, as seen by the IRS, and monitored the populace’s private conversations, seen in the case of the NSA. But to some prominent members of the Clerisy, these power grabs haven’t gone far enough.
 
Leading figures of the Clerisy, like former Obama budget advisor Peter Orszag and Thomas Friedman, argue that power should shift from naturally contentious elected bodies—subject to pressure from the lower orders—to credentialed “experts” operating in Washington, Brussels or the United Nations. The popular will, according to the Clerisy and its allies, lacks the scientific judgment and societal wisdom to be trusted with power.

Quote
Today’s Clerisy attempts to distill today’s distinctly secular “truths”—on issues ranging from the nature of justice, race and gender to the environment—and decide what is acceptable and that which is not. Those who dissent from the accepted point of view can expect their work to be simply ignored, or in some cases vilified. In the Clerical bastion of San Francisco, an actress with heretical views, in this case supporting a Tea Party candidate, who was pilloried, and lost work for her offense.

Quote
The stifling orthodoxy from the technocrats and media elite is benign compared to the inquisitional behavior can be seen in institutions of higher education. It is nothing short of tragic, notes civil libertarian Nat Hentoff, that a 2010 survey of 24,000 college students found that barely a third thought it “safe to hold unpopular views on campus.”

Such attitudes seem natural in an environment where, according to various studies, liberals outnumber conservatives by between eight and fourteen to one. Whether this reflects natural preferences among the well-educated or is partially due to institutional discrimination remains arguable. But consider that 96 percent of all Presidential donations from the nation’s Ivy League schools went to Barack Obama, something more reminiscent of Soviet Russia than a properly functioning pluralistic academy. Nor is there any sign that this trend is slowing. Between 2007 and 2010, a University of California study revealed that “far left” and liberal views grew from 55 percent to almost 63 percent of full-time faculty while the conservative segment dropped from roughly 16 % to less than 12%. If the academic left simply waits long enough, it could look forward to a conservative-free faculty on many campuses.

A similar, if less uniform, clerical consensus suffuses the media culture, led by the television networks and the leading newspapers. In fact nearly half of all Americans consider the media too liberal, more than three times as many who see it as too conservative. Overall, reports Pew, the percentage who feel news is tilted to one side has grown dramatically from 53 percent in 1985 to 77 percent in 2011.

To be sure, there remain important exceptions to this rule, notably Fox News and talk radio, and the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal. Yet the right’s hold on the major media is demonstrably weak, and likely to decline further once Murdoch himself is no longer on the scene. A detailed ++UCLA study found that of the twenty leading news outlets in the country, eighteen were left of center.

Despite the journalistic embrace of the idea of diversity, a recent Indiana University Study notes that journalists themselves have become increasingly homogeneous.  Journalists are far more likely to be college educated than they were in 1970, and less likely to be a racial minority than just a decade ago. But the biggest change has been an ideological one; barely seven percent in 2013 were Republican, compared to nearly a quarter in 1971.

Quote
This consensus of views prevails as well in the electronic media. As the liberal author Jonathan Chait suggests, the media increasingly reflects not just commercial values, but “a vast left-wing conspirary.” He adds: “You don’t have to be an especially devoted consumer of film or television (I’m not) to detect a pervasive, if not total, liberalism.”

Yeah, good shit, isn't it. 

This article asserts that:
* They force her to dress up as Aunt Jemima
* They force her to stand outside and ring the supper bell
* OMG they refer to her as JellyRoll which is slang for black people pussy
* Racist, rapist son forces himself upon her then brags about his conquest on twitter (they smooched for the camera)

I'm sure that woman who didn't complain is going to really benefit from the media firestorm that will surround her now.  No way this will negatively impact her life.

Maybe angry white SJWs will call her names for not being outraged enough.  :)
Maybe the negative press will force them to close the place and she'll be out of a job.  :)
Maybe crazies will now know her name, place of employment and what she looks like and can harass her in person. :)

Yup, this is definitely for the good of that poor gainfully employed woman.  She can finally leave that hellhole and get one of those millions of plum new jobs that are open to middle aged women in the service industry.

clearly she is too opressed to see how those white folks are opressing her and too intimidated to take a stand because whites have all the money.  Clearly something must be done to protect the noble negros and to denounce all white males and get more interracial dating for young white girls to free them from the patriachal yoke of their fathers. :christina:

Plus, there is nothing more SOUTHERN than the idea of an older black woman/grandmother type figure ringing a dinner bell for the family to come in, sit down, and enjoy some southern/soul food. Yes, the connotations of slavery are there, but more likely than not, people just think of large southern black families calling each other to the fucking dinner table.

It's a picture of her and a thank you/congrats celebrating her 17 years with the restaurant.


If your chosen vocation is in the restaurant business and you get a job like this in a celebrity restaurant for 17 years, you've got to be considered a raging success in that industry right?  Unless you're a famous chef with your own place, a job like that is as high as you can get.
It's a real bummer that people are using her for their own gains and jeopardizing her happiness and livelihood in the process.  She's actually a real success and they're painting her as an Aunt Jemima impersonator, undermining her life's work.

An article almost custom made for this thread: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/18/sexist-racist-online-sabotage-wont-win-posing-online-feminists-leftists

To start off, the subheading:

Quote
Those posing online as feminists and leftists, attempting to provoke infighting, underestimate the strength of our movement

If the movement can be easily provoked into infighting, then it isn't a strong movement to begin with.  With full media backing and a sympathetic political system, it is interesting how some 4chan trolls can cause significant damage.

Quote
#YesAllWomen reveals the constant barrage of sexism that women face

The Guardian is still trying to milk the Elliot Rodgers story of its last few drops.  Feminists, SJWs, and leftists were salivating for an event like that.  For a hot minute, the MSM obliged and it seemed like everyone was focused on how misogynist this guy is and the feminists were happier than a pig in shit.  Until, wait a minute, he killed more men than women and as more people read his crazy ass manifesto, being a woman hater was one of a laundry list of issues.  Then the topic moved away from misogyny to narcissism to mental health issues because it turns out that he's been seeing psychiatrists and popping crazy pills since he was eight years old or some shit like that.  The misogyny angle went as soon as it came, to the anger and shock of feminists who were so certain that this event was going to kick off an anti-male revolution, not unlike the kid in Tunisia who inadvertently kicked off the Arab Spring for setting himself on fire in protest.  As you all know, #banbossy was a huge moneysink that didn't achieve anything and Belle Knox went away after negative attention kept mounting higher and higher until it was too indefensible, especially when she dropped out of college to go on a stripping tour.  So feminism needed that big break, thought they had it with Elliot Rodgers, and it slipped through their fingers.

Quote
This week, sexist and racist trolls have borrowed the tactics of the CIA and Scotland Yard and sent in agents provocateurs to spread disharmony among online activists. Using stock photos and the stolen information of real activists, users of sites such as 4chan started hashtags including #Endfathersday and #whitescantberaped that are deliberately designed to provoke sections of the social justice left into internal arguments.

I didn't know 4chan could rustle their jimmies so easily.  It isn't 4chan's fault that people fell for the obvious troll, it's hashtag activists who are too stupid to see an obvious joke.

Quote
A network is only as good as the bonds of trust upon which it is built. That is why the agent provocateur is such an effective form of sabotage – online and offline.

So some fat 17 year old nerd who posts on an anime image forum is now an agent provocateur?  roffle

Quote
Of course, radicals and progressives have never needed much encouragement to cannibalise our own passions. Infighting is a feature rather than a bug of social justice movements, though it is hardly unique to the left, and if we wait for everyone to get along before we start to create change, we're going to be waiting a very long time. Existing tensions, however, are vulnerable to exploitation – and these trolls have hit the weak nerve of the modern feminist movement, capitalising on the often troubling ways it has dealt with criticism from constituencies of women considered marginal. Our enemies know us better, perhaps, than some of us hoped.

I had to laugh at this.  Maybe because the movement is full of people who are a few cards short of a deck, advocating for extreme measures, and incessantly whining about being triggered by the most pissant shit.  Again, it's not the fault of 4chan for trolling people so easy as it is the online justice league being too incompetent to figure out how to work their way through obvious trolling.  Dumb people are always angry about something and social justice warriors tend to be an irate set.  Has anyone administered IQ tests to these people to see if they're a standard deviation or two away from functioning adults, you might be surprised!  It isn't so much that going to college means anything, Benny the Snake is a retard and graduated with an English degree.  Thanks to grade inflation and letting anyone in with a pulse, having a college education is no longer an indicator of intelligence.

Quote
The reason sexist trolls fretting alone in their bedrooms are frightened of political women online, particularly women of colour, is the same reason they won't win. Despite our differences, and even because of our differences, we are powerful, and we are many, and this is our time, not theirs.

:lolno:

4chan trolls aren't the ones fretting, it's the online feminists who are fretting about whether their latest tweet was too racist or transphobic.

(Summary of another long-ass post on the title topic by Scott Alexander (http://slatestarcodex.com/2014/06/14/living-by-the-sword/) which, as usual, is very worth reading in full)


Charles Clymer was a respected and successful SJW.

(http://i.imgur.com/cAKqOxO.png)

Until Twitter SJWs suddenly decided he wasn't part of the cool kids' club anymore:

Quote
As far as I can tell, Clymer said on Twitter that Jesus would have been pro-feminist and that religion needs to try harder to be pro-choice and pro-feminist. Someone interpreted this as “using a women-centered hashtag to promote religious beliefs” and decided to see what else she could find on him. You may read the page and decide for yourself, but as far as I can tell, what she found was:

- He’s around the 75th percentile for Internet jerkitude and some of the people he was jerks to were women
- He banned people from his Facebook page, reasons unclear, and some of them were women
- He said he was in the feminist movement “80 percent for the cause” but that he also felt good when things he wrote became popular

This was sufficient to paint a big target on his head. We then proceeded to the ritual of Dredge Up Everything He Has Ever Written And Interpret It As Further Evidence He Is Terrible.

Quote
I wonder if a good definition for “social cancer” might be any group that breaks the rules of cooperative behavior that bind society together in order to spread more quickly than it could legitimately achieve, and eventually take over the whole social body.

But society, like whales, is very big [citation needed]. Long before a group can take over society, it reaches a size where it needs to develop internal structure and rules about interaction between group members. If you collect a bunch of people and tell them to abandon all the social norms like honesty, politeness, respect, charity, and reason in favor of a cause – then the most likely result is that when your cause tries to develop some internal structure, it will be overrun by a swarm of people who have abandoned honesty, politeness, respect, charity, and reason.

Contrary to what our medical orgonomist friend says, I don’t think the Communists were much of a social cancer. The political communists, the kind we got in the US, mostly stuck to the rules. But look what happened to them. They got all excited about how the governing power structures were evil and needed to be destroyed. They set up various organizations dedicated to destroying the governing power structures. And people proceeded to decide that the governing power structures of those organizations were evil and needed to be destroyed. As a result, Communist parties were rent by constant factional warfare and they never got around to destroying the society they lived in at all.

And look what happened to Mr. Clymer. His whole spiel was about throwing out the virtue of charity – how when people have been accused of things, we should condemn them automatically, no chance it’s wrong, false accusations rarer than comet strikes. And then…

Quote
if you elevate jerkishness into a principle, if you try to undermine the rules that keep niceness, community, and civilization going, the defenses against social cancer – then your movement will fracture, it will be hugely embarrassing, the atmosphere will become toxic, unpopular people will be thrown to the mob, everyone but the thickest-skinned will bow out, the people you need to convince will view you with a mixture of terror and loathing, and you’ll spend so much time dealing with internal conflicts that you’ll never get enough blood supply to grow large enough to kill a whale.

You will get things like #StopClymer and #Jacobinghazi.

Thus the Archipelagian Principle: Given infinite freedom of association, most people end will up in more or less the community they deserve.

That video was great, cunty bitch put in her place.  I love how she starts the name calling and when he retaliates she plays the victim card.  Feminists would get more respect if they took what they dished out without trying to play the victim card. 

She made them close the debate because she couldn't be mature about it and the only thing she prepared was her personal attacks against him.  Good to see the moderators had the good taste to end it before it got even uglier. 

She, like most feminists, wants to be incredibly nasty to all men but wants everyone to treat her with the utmost respect because she has ovaries and a vagina.  Regardless what she says about wanting equality for women, her actions show us that she does not want equality but rather supremacy.  Double standards. 

What a cunt.

They will take it to the next level and try to get you fired from your job.  Most corporations are chickenshit and are afraid of looking like being on the wrong side.  If that means getting rid of an accused bigot in hopes that they won't be associated with bigotry, then 9 times out of 10, they will do it without thinking twice.

The movement will end when the left no longer has the juice to get anyone fired.

It's a double-edged sword for them, too. For every WHITE CIS MISOGYNIST who posts under his real name and gets fired, there are 100 SJWs who post under their own real name.

What corporation with a sane HR department would google one of them and choose to hire a SJW-lawsuit-waiting-to-happen? I took HR classes in college as part of my business degree. While it was mostly a total bore, the overriding theme was how to *avoid lawsuits*!

It'll be interesting to see how these all do in the next few years. And interesting to see the excuses they have for they fail. Just kidding, it'll be racism.

They will claim that the lives of the super poor are much better than they used to be.  Who cares if the country is literally out of toilet paper?  If you were using toilet paper to begin with it means you were, by definition, a member of the bourgeoisie!!

So I just want to go on record.  If I was personally able to create matter out of nothing, cure all the sick with just a wave of my hand, and defy every single rule of economics because of *magic powers*, then yes, OF COURSE I would be a socialist.  Why wouldn't I be?

Socialism is a very realistic and viable form of government in SciFi and Fantasy literature.  Goons are correct about this topic.

They have a machine that creates matter from energy (replicators), and energy is nearly infinite from *future technology*.  This means the day to day needs of the masses are no big deal, including a ridiculous amount of leisure activities (holo decks).   This system of hyper abundance, combined with a one world government, has for the most part ended war.  At least in the West (the Federation). 

In the East (non federation space), they don't have this technology and thus they continue to go to war with each other over scarce resources.


At least that's my very limited understanding anyways.  I'm sure a Trekie Nerd (Probably Aran) will correct me.

More people than the federation have replicators, but you've largely nailed it. War is over habitable planets and raw resources, since a replicator can turn the refined resources into a finished product nearly instantly.

The difference is for TNG or DS9 or something the Ferengi, who are super capitalist caricatures have some quantum material that cannot be replicated, and it becomes the intergalatic currency.

More than that. Jesus was very much into social equality and tearing down "the man".

The difference is that, unlike goons, Jesus didn't believe that the successful should be punished or murdered - just that they should share their success with the less fortunate and not treat less successful people like shit. Also he believed that everyone who could work should work - there was a difference between poor and lazy.
(I think we've discovered the secret of why goons hate christianity so much right there)

When I was like 13 It used to annoy me in scifi that leftist shit was everywhere in sci fi. Then I realized if you had basically free energy, hyperintelligant AI, and virtually unlimited resources of course markets dont make sense.

But then I readin the SA scifi book thread that "the Culture"(one of those societies in one of the books) would be great to have right now. And I debookmarked that tab. It makes people think those types of societies are normal or acheivable within their lifetime. A lot of goon attitudes make sense, they rarely think the leftist shit through and its probably just a holdover from when they read fucktons of scifi.

Even if you had unlimited free energy and instant matter creation from thin air, there would be still be markets.  Economics is all about economising scarce resources.  Hand made objects and original thought would become the things people paid a premium for.

"The culture" I mentioned even got around that by saying the AI could create any symphony,art style, etc anyone could ever want better than the best. But even then yea some stuff would scarce along those lines. I was speaking generally about markets as most of them would be gone. (energy, food, transportation, health etc)

Well yeah obviously.   Of COURSE capitalism will be the best system possible until literally every single want a human could ever have is 100% free from a thermo-dynamics physics perspective.  Even if food, and shelter can be created out of thin air because of *technology*, you are still going to have markets for any and all possible concepts that are limited in nature.

That's not true at all.  Except for some outliers like disease and old age, it's almost impossible to die for lack of food, water, or shelter in the West right now, and goony fags are still the minority.

Obsessions with non-essential activities like vidya games, tech for its own sake, collecting useless shit and watching (as opposed to playing) sports has risen, but so has devotion to solving the remaining things that kill people or otherwise endanger them.

The biggest problem in a society with limitless energy/technology would be difficulty in recovering if something ever put an end to the system that created it.  The ability to adapt to a crisis is still a pretty important part of human behavior, and animals that evolve into a specific niche become totally helpless and quickly go extinct if it's destroyed.

In Star Trek its possible to tell the difference between replicated and orignals, but IIRC they don't go into exactly how that comes to be. I think as a plot sort of thing some people claim they can taste the difference between natural and replicated things, but I don't think it was ever a point.

Food is programmed into replicators manually, it's not magically scanned or anything, and it's hard to get exactly right. So if you're familiar with a natural food, it's probably not going to taste right replicated

outing myself as 10 years old when the SNES was hip but anyways I remember in that old JRPG Chrono Trigger it was about time travel and you head into the post-apocalyptic future where nothing natural can grow, robots are trying to murder all the remaining humans and it's perpetually storming and dark because of giant smoke clouds in the atmosphere, grim stuff.

The inn/save point in that time(and why any Humans are still alive) is a machine that heals all wounds and relieves exhaustion. Every time you use it you get two messages: "Hit Points restored" and "But you're still hungry..." A cool touch. Probably a commentary on how you need to work a little for something to appreciate it and that techno-wizardy can't substitute the biological needs our bodies are anchored to from the species' origin. A heroic thing you do for the remaining humans is find some natural seeds in a bio-lab or something like that.

Aren't we kinda already reaching these crazy synthetic high points? We're already a niche society where most people get their food from giant hubs and if you lost that hub system they'd all die within a week. Ask a Gen Y for a food source that isn't a supermarket, restaurant or pizza delivery. It's a natural result of our population growth and advancement of society but it's also kinda sad how few people can even handle some recreational farming or reject entirely the concept of hunting.

And then you see the goons who eat literally nothing but frozen meals, burgers and pizza and actively hate vegetables/healthy cooking. The fuckers who claim that it's impossible to eat healthy for cheap because they've never done it(bulk rice and dry beans motherfuckers) and again man the fuckers who leave childhood and still hate all vegetables. Now you can dislike a few, everybody has different tastes. Myself I enjoy the taste of onion but prefer it only as flavoring since the texture of onions kinda bugs me as I eat. No big deal. But you've got them goony fucks who actively avoid it! Never even go back and try it again! So many veggies you can turn into filling as a meat dish just by cooking them till they're soft and adding a touch of pepper.

I think there's a disturbing amount of goons who'd take the replicator without a second thought. They've given everything else up.

Like the "not entirely unlike tea" crap from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

One of the other big themes in sci-fi is that if we reach the point where we clone things for food we'll hit a point of exponential genetic failures or something. And it'll taste terrible without a soul!

It often lead to profoundly dumb advice that made nature seem like a diseased wasteland. Berries in a forest? Can't eat those, they've been sitting out in the open. Always be vigilant, the bears are everywhere. Don't drink the water, you'll get sick. The fish is full of worms and toxins, don't eat them. Eat roots, they're highly nutritious!

See, that depends on where they are and  how preppy they get.

Having a 72-hour bug-out bag for each family member is just good sense.
If you live near a large body of water, having an alternative energy source and some floatation devices isn't a bad idea.
Living in a subdivision and having a "Year's supply of survival food"? Ya'll nuts and stupid.

For people in cities/subdivisions, the probably of crazy starts about one week and goes to 100% past one month. If you think you are staying in your house in the burbs for longer than that, you are dreaming. Either emergency services have reached you, or civilization has completely fallen and you are going to need to move to an area where you can start farming.

Out in the country, where its 1) going to take longer for help to reach you 2) its more likely that if things have truly gone to utter shit you will be able to remain in place for the duration and 3) you are more likely to have your survival gear serve double-duty as camping supplies, its much fuzzier.


Bonus story:
I worked with a guy who lived next to one of the crazy preppers just before Y2K. He was unloading cases of canned goods and bottled water. My friend asked his neighbor what he was doing, my neighbor replied he was getting ready for chaos caused by Y2K.

"Aren't you ready?" The neighbor asked.

"You don't own a gun, do you?" My friend asked.

"No." replied the neighbor.

"Oh. Well then I'm all set." My friend replied before heading inside his house.

The joke is that my friend owns several firearms, and thus would be able to take his neighbor's supplies because he would be unarmed

Socialism is a very realistic and viable form of government in SciFi and Fantasy literature.  Goons are correct about this topic.

IIRC wasn't money/currency along with the profit motive essentially "discontinued" in the Star Trek universe or something?

They have a machine that creates matter from energy (replicators), and energy is nearly infinite from *future technology*.  This means the day to day needs of the masses are no big deal, including a ridiculous amount of leisure activities (holo decks).   This system of hyper abundance, combined with a one world government, has for the most part ended war.  At least in the West (the Federation). 

In the East (non federation space), they don't have this technology and thus they continue to go to war with each other over scarce resources.

The difference is for TNG or DS9 or something the Ferengi, who are super capitalist caricatures have some quantum material that cannot be replicated, and it becomes the intergalatic currency.

Even before they completely got rid of the dumb "no currency" system, they had "credits" anyway.  Gene Roddenberry was goon prime.

* Hated Religion
* Seriously was one of those "we should outgrow war" faggots
* Relentlessly talked about how stupid people who's opinions he didn't like were
* Perma :smug:
* Was well known to throw literal temper tantrums when his "vision" was being violated by other writers.

I always  :lolno: at people who laugh at preppers, not the goony zombie apocalypse preppers,  the real ones. If you don't have at least the bare minimum of supplies or preparation for a major event, you are an idiot.  Katrina and Sandy have proven that small hurricanes can completely shut down a region. Watching people from New Jersey flood out of state to get fuel was icing on the cake. People were acting like animals and it was a good time to be armed. That was in less than a week. If you can ride out the first two months of an end of western society event, you will probably be just fine.

One *small* thing to come of Sandy was that a lot of liberals (unfortunately not enough) learned the hard way how nice it is to have the ability to defend yourself and not depend on the police.  I know a lot of liberal nerd fags who now completely agree that we should be allowed guns.  They are TFR gun people, in that they hate themselves for supporting even *one* Republican issue, but it's a start.

Gene Roddenberry was goon prime.

When I was taking a class that veered into copyright law, we talked about a fun lil' fact about that piece of shit Roddenfaggot.

Alexander Courage was commissioned to write the original show theme song, and as soon as he finished, Gene snuck behind him and wrote shitty lyrics to it, lyrics so shitty he knew they'd never be used, and the contracts entitled him to 50% of the royalties.

It would be like if one man built a house and another man washed a window and then they both got paid half the cost of the house.

Doing that did completely change how contracts for orchestrators and composers contracts were written so they didn't get fucked over again. I'd like to imagine that if Matt Groening tried to do that to Danny Elfman he'd have strangled him in his sleep.

Even if you had unlimited free energy and instant matter creation from thin air, there would be still be markets.  Economics is all about economising scarce resources.  Hand made objects and original thought would become the things people paid a premium for.

"The culture" I mentioned even got around that by saying the AI could create any symphony,art style, etc anyone could ever want better than the best. But even then yea some stuff would scarce along those lines. I was speaking generally about markets as most of them would be gone. (energy, food, transportation, health etc)
Seems marxism is all about hand-waving away criticism, both now and in the future

Nah, The Culture didn't hand wave away problems, they were just so advanced that literally anything was possible.  The only rule in Culture society was "Thou shall not murder another sapient being be it organic or AI".  The civilization was controlled by Minds who are hyperadvanced AI that are smarter than like a billion planets of humans combined with each planet containing 10 billion humans.  They are incomprehensible to humans and, for all intents and purposes, are literal Gods with the ability to create or do anything thanks to unlimited energy and the ability to use it.  Everything a human can do, a Mind can do it about a quadrillion times better.  Humans and other organic sentients basically live in boredom because they have little to do beyond sex (you can change your sex on the genetic level whenever you want), games, and Special Circumstances.  Special Circumstances is what all of the books deal with because that is where humans are inserted into less advanced societies to try and push them in the right direction and away from brutality, oppression, 3rd world dictatorship tactics (and some of the civilizations have literal institutionalized rape and torture to the point where they are basically what a highly advanced Imperial Japanese civilization would look like).  Special Circumstances also deals with Outside Context Problems, which are events that a society cannot foresee and often are societal and civilizational killers (see Spain's initial encounter with the Aztecs for a real world example). 

The Culture books are quite good and I recommend them to anyone.  None of the stories ever deal with or mention the lives of everyday humans, they just mention them in passing because honestly a book about a society where your every want, desire, need, etc. could be met and exceed is going to be relatively boring and read like wish fulfillment.

Even if there was unlimited free energy & instant matter creation from thin air, there would still be markets simply because of greed.  Goons who think that society in 100, 200, or even 500 years from now will be like some fucking borg-esque hivemind from Star Trek are most likely suffering from an undiagnosed form of autism. The concept of currency/money will never go away, period—meaning markets are here to stay in one form or another.

Greed cannot compete with an unlimited energy matter repicator and a 100% realistic virtual world.  What use is currency in a world where your every need, want, desire, etc. can be had with a push of a button?  I want to beat the shit out of people?  Go into this virtual world and go at it.  I want to constantly have a vagina on my penis?  Virtual world.  I want a planet for myself the size of Jupiter with Earth Standard gravity?  Matter replicator.  There is nothing that cannot be done, no request too ridiculous, and nothing outside of the realm of possibility.  True it only works in a sci-fi/fantasy world where resource scarcity is not a problem (unless we can figure out a way to create energy from nothing) and it's all theoretical, but there is a point where all economic systems as we know them, break down completely.  A truly post-scarcity civilization is essentially a post-singularity civilization and isn't really comprehendible to the human brain because we can't imagine it.

Another left eating the left article: http://pando.com/2014/07/25/gawker-no-longer-even-trying-to-pretend-its-not-grotesquely-hypocritical-on-tax/

Gawker, legitimately one of the worst sites out there on the internet, has been bashing various companies for not paying enough taxes.  Except, oops, it has a bunch of shell corporations that it uses to avoid paying taxes as well.

Exact same fucking thing happened with Warren Buffet when he made headlines in all the liberal news outlets by saying "I'm a billionaire and member of the 1% and I demand you raise my taxes!  I don't get taxed nearly enough!!!"

Turns out the company he owns (Berkshire Hathaway) was undergoing a long IRS investigation for evading taxes.   Yep, literally the same day he did his "The government isn't taxing me enough!!" speech, his company was being fucking investigated by the IRS for not paying taxes.  What a hypocrite douche.


Of course this is true with all liberals.  Look how many Hollywood leftists send their children to expensive private schools while at the same time raging about vouchers, or bitch and moan about companies evading taxes, while at the same time paying their team of Guatemalan nannies in all cash under the table with no fucking W2's.

Necrobumping but relevant.

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/01/not-a-very-pc-thing-to-say.html

Quote
Around 2 a.m. on December 12, four students approached the apartment of Omar Mahmood, a Muslim student at the University of Michigan, who had recently published a column in a school newspaper about his perspective as a minority on campus. The students, who were recorded on a building surveillance camera wearing baggy hooded sweatshirts to hide their identity, littered Mahmood’s doorway with copies of his column, scrawled with messages like “You scum embarrass us,” “Shut the fuck up,” and “DO YOU EVEN GO HERE?! LEAVE!!” They posted a picture of a demon and splattered eggs.

What a very triggering event and it involves a Muslim.  It must be Islamophobia right?

Quote
His column, published in the school’s conservative newspaper, had spoofed the culture of taking offense that pervades the campus. Mahmood satirically pretended to denounce “a white cis-gendered hetero upper-class man” who offered to help him up when he slipped, leading him to denounce “our barbaric attitude toward people of left-handydnyss.” The gentle tone of his mockery was closer to Charlie Brown than to Charlie Hebdo.

Ah, so he was attacking SJWs.

Quote
The Michigan Daily, where Mahmood also worked as a columnist and film critic, objected to the placement of his column in the conservative paper but hardly wanted his satirical column in its own pages. Mahmood later said that he was told by the editor that his column had created a “hostile environment,” in which at least one Daily staffer felt threatened, and that he must write a letter of apology to the staff. When he refused, the Daily fired him, and the subsequent vandalism of his apartment served to confirm his status as thought-criminal.

Good for him for having the balls to stand up to these losers.

Quote
This was the same inversion of victim and victimizer at work last December. In both cases, the threat was deemed not the angry mobs out to crush opposing ideas, but the ideas themselves. The theory animating both attacks turns out to be a durable one, with deep roots in the political left.

Wow, this is pretty unprecedented to read on such a wankrag like New York magazine.  The whole article is a pro-read but here are some good selections.

Quote
Trigger warnings aren’t much help in actually overcoming trauma — an analysis by the Institute of Medicine has found that the best approach is controlled exposure to it, and experts say avoidance can reinforce suffering. Indeed, one professor at a prestigious university told me that, just in the last few years, she has noticed a dramatic upsurge in her students’ sensitivity toward even the mildest social or ideological slights; she and her fellow faculty members are terrified of facing accusations of triggering trauma — or, more consequentially, violating her school’s new sexual-harassment policy — merely by carrying out the traditional academic work of intellectual exploration. “This is an environment of fear, believe it or not,” she told me by way of explaining her request for anonymity. It reminds her of the previous outbreak of political correctness — “Every other day I say to my friends, ‘How did we get back to 1991?’ ”

Quote
It also makes money. Every media company knows that stories about race and gender bias draw huge audiences, making identity politics a reliable profit center in a media industry beset by insecurity. A year ago, for instance, a photographer compiled images of Fordham students displaying signs recounting “an instance of racial microaggression they have faced.” The stories ranged from uncomfortable (“No, where are you really from?”) to relatively innocuous (“ ‘Can you read this?’ He showed me a Japanese character on his phone”). BuzzFeed published part of her project, and it has since received more than 2 million views. This is not an anomaly.

In a short period of time, the p.c. movement has assumed a towering presence in the psychic space of politically active people in general and the left in particular. “All over social media, there dwell armies of unpaid but widely read commentators, ready to launch hashtag campaigns and circulate Change.org petitions in response to the slightest of identity-politics missteps,” Rebecca Traister wrote recently in The New Republic.

Quote
Two and a half years ago, Hanna Rosin, a liberal journalist and longtime friend, wrote a book called The End of Men, which argued that a confluence of social and economic changes left women in a better position going forward than men, who were struggling to adapt to a new postindustrial order. Rosin, a self-identified feminist, has found herself unexpectedly assailed by feminist critics, who found her message of long-term female empowerment complacent and insufficiently concerned with the continuing reality of sexism. One Twitter hashtag, “#RIPpatriarchy,” became a label for critics to lampoon her thesis. Every new continuing demonstration of gender discrimination — a survey showing Americans still prefer male bosses; a person noticing a man on the subway occupying a seat and a half — would be tweeted out along with a mocking #RIPpatriarchy.

Quote
Binders, however, soon found itself frequently distracted by bitter identity-­politics recriminations, endlessly litigating the fraught requirements of p.c. discourse. “This was the first time I had felt this new kind of militancy,” says the same member, who requested anonymity for fear that her opinions would make her employer uncomfortable. Another sent me excerpts of the types of discussions that can make the group a kind of virtual mental prison.

Quote
Bettina Aptheker, a professor of feminist studies at the University of California–Santa Cruz, recently wrote an essay commemorating the Berkeley Free Speech movement, in which she participated as a student in 1964. She now expressed a newfound skepticism in the merits of free speech. “Freedom of speech is a constitutional guarantee, but who gets to exercise it without the chilling restraints of censure depends very much on one’s location in the political and social cartography,” she wrote. “We [Free Speech movement] veterans … were too young and inexperienced in 1964 to know this, but we do now, and we speak with a new awareness, a new consciousness, and a new urgency that the wisdom of a true freedom is inexorably tied to who exercises power and for what ends.”

 :goonette: "Free speech is acceptable as long as you're not a shitlord"

Quote
The p.c. style of politics has one serious, possibly fatal drawback: It is exhausting. Claims of victimhood that are useful within the left-wing subculture may alienate much of America. The movement’s dour puritanism can move people to outrage, but it may prove ill suited to the hopeful mood required of mass politics. Nor does it bode well for the movement’s longevity that many of its allies are worn out. “It seems to me now that the public face of social liberalism has ceased to seem positive, joyful, human, and freeing,” confessed the progressive writer Freddie deBoer. “There are so many ways to step on a land mine now, so many terms that have become forbidden, so many attitudes that will get you cast out if you even appear to hold them. I’m far from alone in feeling that it’s typically not worth it to engage, given the risks.” Goldberg wrote recently about people “who feel emotionally savaged by their involvement in [online feminism] — not because of sexist trolls, but because of the slashing righteousness of other feminists.” Former Feministing editor Samhita Mukhopadhyay told her, “Everyone is so scared to speak right now.”

I'm hoping that we actually reached peak SJW last year and we're now starting to see the backlash.  Even though the SJW machine was in full force, numerous SJW stories popped up that turned out to be exaggeration, making mountains out of molehills, or pure fiction.  The machine will still be in full force this year but I think we're going to see more and more people get fed up with the movement in general and will start pushing back.  I think people are seeing more of the ugly side of this bullshit instead of the idealistic vision that people had of the movement from 2011-2014 (or thereabouts).

As long as there's money to be made, the outrage will not end, and there is still plenty of money coming into these SJW causes from overpaid nerds and wealthy social manipulators.  Just because a few of the more introspective and observant liberals are starting to give up the cause doesn't mean that the bulk of these broken people are going to relent.  While it's useful to understand that they are indeed a very small minority of the whole, they are tireless and reasonless (as the two are generally related), and more akin to Fidel Castro in his prime giving 8 hour speeches daily than a reasoned debater or thinker who can accept input as well as giving it.

It's going to get worse until the money stops pouring into liberal think tanks and the college breeding grounds where SJW outrage is born.  Given that each economic stabilization measure created by politicians seems to have a much shorter half life than before, I'd say it's not going to be too long, but it will certainly get worse before it gets better.

That's why I said hope.  I'm trying to keep hope alive, man.

The UVA rape story did a shitload of damage to the cause.  Not just in our niggerdeath hugbox but in real life as well.  SJWs and feminists went all in, UVA suspended frat activities, and everyone was getting whipped up into a fever pitch.  Then it turns out the story was bullshit and a lot of people were pissed.  It's why feminists are pretty much laying low for the moment.  Whether they want to admit it or not, that story really damaged their cause and whether they want to admit it or not, a not insignificant number of people are going to be double checking or just outright ignoring/disbelieving anything that comes out of Rolling Stone.

As I said in my earlier post, the SJW machine will be in full effect but this year, I believe we're going to see more pushback from people. In the past, as shown in the Chait article, they were too afraid to speak up.  I think that is no longer becoming the case.  I suspect that more people are going to start calling bullshit on obvious bullshit and the movement will begin unraveling from there.  SJW shit won't go away this year, the next, or probably even 2017 but it will be a lot weaker than it is now.  Mostly because these people often have to resort to making shit up to seem legitimate and even progressive people are going to shy away from it eventually, which they may already be doing slowly but surely.

You guys really fail to understand that a *lot* of left-thinking people will vote for Hillary, regardless of SJWs.  These range from people who don't pay any attention to SJW shit to people who know all about it but WE CAN'T HAVE A RETHUGLICAN!!  The days of people seeing what their party is become and changing your opinions because of it are long gone.  People have bred in a very hard-lined "us vs them"
 mentality, and they will vote for Hillary in droves, if only to not have a R in the white house.

Rest assured, whomever the GOP picks, will be branded as Bush II.  It's going to be funny to see all the gymnastics they do to explain why it's ok that Barry did most of the same things, but it's now EVIL that a R wants to continue, but... just hold onto your butts.

Living in a subdivision and having a "Year's supply of survival food"? Ya'll nuts and stupid.

Since we're necroing I'll jump on this one.

There's more reason to lay in a good stock of food than natural disaster/rahowa prep. Let's say that you get an injury or illness that puts you on the shelf for six months or a year. Having a stock of food along with a rainy day fund to cover your bills will go a long way toward helping your peace of mind. With all that Mormon shit available on the market, it's not like a single person's/family's year stockpile will take an entire backyard bunker to store up and a lot of it will keep for a good long time.

Pretty tasty, too.

I'm wasn't saying not to keep a good stock of canned goods that you rotate through. What I was saying is dumb is have a big supply of the freeze dried "20 year shelf-life survival food"; its expensive and you aren't going to be in your house long enough to eat it.

Not that just owning survival food makes you an instant retard; If you've got a few sacks of Mountain House or a couple MREs tucked away in a bug out bag, you're all good. Having a bunch of cans of tuna, soup, and veggies that you replace as you eat them as part of normal meals is also fine.

It did as much damage as the fake Duke lacrosse rape story, which is none.  It's not a score card, it's a demographics issue.  The ruling demographic (Baby Boomers) are way too fagged up by their special snowflake status to ever push the envelope by challenging the narrative they've accepted all their lives, and they're too old to change now anyway.  Every single one of the conservative Baby Boomers I know agree that the Republicans are wet nurse homosexuals who lost their spines years ago, yet there's not a single one I know that doesn't vote R line downward.  No amount of media bullshit is going to change this until the following generation, who had to grow up with the faggotry like Earth Day and had dirty footed hippies brought into their class who they secretly resented, get on top and sway the political picture.

Ignoring and disbelieving the media is one thing, actively shouting the King has no clothes in a crowded room is quite another.  And things will get much worse before that happens.

Liberals have never given one shit about free speech.  They may have mouthed support for it temporarily.  But they were only for free speech as long as it potentially gave them more power.

Now that liberals are in power, free speech can only hurt their cause.  So of course they're against it.  Constant criticism for the tiniest misspeak, crack the whip to make sure people know their place.  White's freedom of speech?  Privileged and therefore should not be allowed.

"Free Speech" has not for one second, ever, been about any kind of actual principled moral stand with Liberals.

The UVA rape story did a shitload of damage to the cause.  Not just in our niggerdeath hugbox but in real life as well.  SJWs and feminists went all in, UVA suspended frat activities, and everyone was getting whipped up into a fever pitch.  Then it turns out the story was bullshit and a lot of people were pissed.  It's why feminists are pretty much laying low for the moment.  Whether they want to admit it or not, that story really damaged their cause and whether they want to admit it or not, a not insignificant number of people are going to be double checking or just outright ignoring/disbelieving anything that comes out of Rolling Stone.

It did as much damage as the fake Duke lacrosse rape story, which is none.
At the time I thought the Duke case was the high water mark for what was then termed "political correctness".

I was dead wrong.

No one gave a shit that they were totally wrong and prosecuted three total innocents with iron-clad alibis for a crime that clearly didn't happen.

Still no one gives a shit.  This isn't the first story Rolling Stone has almost completely fabricated or juiced-up.

Now PC has metastasized and turned into the SJW movement.  At least there is some humor in the SJW's young feeding on their creators.  Don't for one second have any empathy for Chait.  He has long been one of the leaders of the "you can't say that" movement and it is hilarious watching them being devoured by their own creations.

oh yea the books were written by a scottish socialist. Hes one of the more egregious examples. His books are actually well written but holy fuck that guy presses it hard.
from a few months ago, but.. Ken Macleod?  The Cassini Division was an interesting book but there's one section where he just masturbates furiously to a socialist utopia society.  People sit around waiting for things to happen, waiting for someone to deliver them food.  There's plenty there.  Who made it?  Who knows?  Some people get up and decide to start handing out food.  Some don't, they just sit around.  All is perfect.  All they had to do was wait around for the right experts to design the perfect society.  If something needs to happen, it happens.  If people just want to sit around and do nothing, they can.

Basically the stupidest navel-gazing "yep socialism would be just perfect if not for a few stubborn selfish rich manipulators standing in the way" :smug:

Jumping on the entire "Chait loves free speech when its free speech he agrees with" bandwagon.  When Jason Richwine published his findings on how unlimited 3rd Immigration wasn't the panacea that certain types were making it out to be, Chait was one of the faggots calling for him to be tarred and feathered in the public square.

Basically more of the "Who? Whom?" effect Sailer is always going on about as well as the Left's entire "dissent is only allowable when we're doing it" hypocrisy.

What's worse Rolling Stone or Nancy Grace?
measuring from a single event on the egregio-meter, they're pretty similar
* RS gets pluses for overall size and breadth of scope, by tarring and feathering frats across the country while also kneecaping one of the most prestigious public institutions of learning in the US. But, while burning white hot, points off for the relatively short duration before bullshit was called

*NG's coverage of, say  :zimmer:, are laser-focused one person, so the social impact was meh.  it's clear that she's she's paying her mortgage with the outrage. the duration and the intensity are a virtuoso performance. i appreciate her "all in" effort to tune the PC engines to run on low-outrage fuel.  however, it's insulting that cnn headline news thinks the world is so boring that it need her to get viewers.

over all,
* no one really goes to rs for real journalism any more, and haven't for ... decades? (november's madcap comedy guarantees that trend will continue for another decade or so, despite the attempt to mount an "even if it's fake, the message needs to get out there" campaign.  kali lowe stories were more believable. )

taibbi was ok, and at times i found him enjoyable, but he could be shrill too and outside of a small-ish audience he's an unknown.  i think the expectation is lower that anything in rs is newsworthy to anyone over 16.

*  cnn has a horrible reputation for real journalism as well, but it's still ubiquitous meaning NG is too.

ng is the worst, and wins early, by t.k.o.

Some people were trumpeting Al-Jazeera as being some non biased form of "real" old school journalism; I stayed away figuring it was too good to be true. They showed their true colors with their editors' memos on the Charlie Hebdo coverage. Yep, they're pro-Islamist shills.

Most journalists these days go the advocacy journalism route: most of them don't really give a shit if something is objectively true or not, the message is more important than the story.  The good news is that even though the internet has a lot of poz, the internet has removed most of the gatekeeper aspects of journalism.  The UVA rape story would not have been taken down as fast as it did without the internet.  The media will still pretend that they are the definitive source for news but it has been eroding pretty quickly and will only accelerate further.  In 25 years, New York Times, CNN, or Fox News isn't going to mean anything to anyone.

If you stay away from any stories involving Israel, Palestinians, or Islam in general (80% of the site), Al-Jazeera can be an interesting read, since you get a very outsider perspective on events. During the early stages of Iraq/Afghanistan it was interesting to get the other side's perspective. Actually its usually a good idea to stay away from the Arabic penisula. The less Qatar cares about something, the better the reporting.

I figure this isn't worth a thread about it but someone I know had to do a report on "The New Left Challenge to Soviet Socialism" or something and the end result (besides a report for the professor) was that he scanned a 1970s English book from the USSR (https://archive.org/details/PhilosophyOfRevolt) "analyzing" (shitting all over) the New Left including the Frankfurt School, Marcuse, Sartre, and other familiar faces.

It's interesting (for me anyway) because it's basically an ideologue being all "holy shit what the fuck is wrong with you people, what have you done to Marxism?"

Old school economic-focused leftists viewed most racial conflicts as perpetuated by the upper class to keep the lower classes arguing amongst themselves while furthering their own ends (look at, say, who actually benefited from slavery in the south). Whenever the New Left convinces itself that focusing on changing the culture from microaggressions (or whatever) is the new priority number one, old school leftists point out this is retarded and in a way further moves away from what they view as the core cause.

Then the old school leftists are usually called stealth reactionaries or something and ignore the criticism. Then actual conservatives figure out how to make fun of the New Left and essentially tell regular people how fucking crazy they are. And then Reagan or whoever gets voted in.

The truth is that gaining the approval of some oppressed e-celeb who spends all day tweeting or getting a cisbiggot e-celeb to apologize for saying 'faggot' is an easy way of making yourself feel good about improving the world; helping people who are genuinely disadvantaged and have a hard time just keeping themselves alive is not.

This is why rich white, 20something, literal goons like Alex Lifschitz can actually convince themselves that they're "fighting for the oppressed" while not letting anyone touch their share of daddy's fortune. You don't need to do that, you just need to poz out about how Grand Theft Auto is keeping women enslaved and you're a good, caring person.

Today I'm fairly sure I'd get an HR write-up

It seemed to happen almost overnight though

Tropic Thunder happened, pretty much.
i remember the push to make "retarded" non-pc way before that. Way before tropic thunder

Retard strikes me as one of those offensive terms no one is actually offended by.  Like, who are you even offending when you call someone retarded?  Retarded people are too stupid to care.  So that leaves, who, the parents of retarded kids?  Dumb, but not quite retarded, people?

There was a huge stigma against the retarded including forced sterilization. It seems like removing this word from common usage is an attempt to gloss over the darker history people associate with the word. The term mentally handicapped is more insulting and doesn't describe the actual issue accurately. Their brains are literally retarded and develop at a much slower pace. Most of their weird quirks are a result of missing important developmental milestones within their limited window at infancy. In most cases they will never develop beyond the mentality of a young adult but they can still improve with proper care. Handicapped implies they a broken and cannot be fixed.

I asked an actual retarded person about this once and his response was basically "I know I am retarded and I don't see it as an insult because it is true. People should expect less of me because of it. The people who try to treat my like I am not retarded are the ones who make me uncomfortable."

Looks like people outside of the usual forum nerd and gamer circles are starting to wake up to the madness of social justice warriors. I saw this today on EOSHD:

http://www.eoshd.com/2015/03/clarkson-should-have-gone-to-rehab-say-bbc-as-top-gear-inquiry-begins/

Now, for context: EOSHD is a site strictly about cameras and filmmaking equipment. Like, 99,9% of it is news or reviews of cameras, lenses and other shit like that, aimed at people who use internet to look up on test charts for the latest RED cameras and see test videos of stabilizers etc. And that site is now (admittedly, spurred by the Jeremy Clarkson fiasco) writing about how fucked up the internet social justice warriors are.


Quote
Humour and creative risk taking are being pulled under by a faceless crowd of sanctimonious trolls. A culture is taking over, heavily pre-disposed to a savage online shaming game. As filmmakers and creative artists we should be aware of what is happening and try to prevent it… because we could be next.

...

“It seems to me that the speed and anonymity of the internet has released a demon in otherwise perfectly normal people, transforming them in seconds into spiteful, vengeful, mean-spirited psychopaths.

“Every now and then, their collective self righteousness leaps from out of the hermetic world of the internet and into real life. And when this happens, their randomly selected victim can have his or her reputation destroyed.
...

If this is not the perverted culture we want in our creative industries, now is the time to stand up for what we really believe in – the freedom of speech, the importance of humour and tolerance.

The pushback on these fuckers might be closer than we think  :reagan:

I get the feeling that since Shirtgate and the false rape accusations in Rolling Stone.  The SJWs are finally getting called out for their bullshit.

I think a good part of it too is that there is a lot more "original sin" type of social justice.  In other words, as a white cishet male, I am every -ist and -phobe that everyone can concoct and my duty is to spend the rest of my life atoning for these sins and also I'm not allowed to make any more babies, especially white babies, lest some tumblrette scoffs at how I'm delaying the inevitable.  That is very tough to keep people for too long.

Also this flavor of SJW is in favor of absolution of responsibility, especially for blacks.  Whether SJWs want to admit it or not, most of the first world is a law and order type of society: if you break the law, you should be punished.  SJWs believe in a sliding scale of justice where melanin means more than the crime committed.  Again, that is going to be very difficult to get enough people on board because tax paying citizens don't want niggers plundering their houses and raping their wives/daughters because they won't get punished.

They went too far because they're fucking idiots.  Most of them are so narcissistic that they refuse to budge from their wildly unrealistic visions of how a society should be run.  The only reason why they get taken seriously is because most employers don't know about internet trolls and take tumblr campaigns seriously.  As society gets more calloused to these, people won't have to worry about losing their job because they said Charlotte McKinney had big titties on their Facebook account.

I agree that they're on the downswing. It probably sounds retarded but I unironically give Gamergate some credit. It was the first time a group of people basically said "fuck this", and while it didn't change any mainstream debate on its own, it had the weird side effect of bringing together like-minded keyboard warriors to start creating noise whenever stupid SJW shit was going down. Shirtgate probably would've gone under the radar if Gamergate people hadn't made a big campaign out of it (on their subreddit and subsequently on Twitter).

Also, I think the reaction to the Charlie Hebdo shootings from that particular portion of the left (:unparsons: "While I condemn the killings, let's also equally condemn the cartoon makers...") pissed off a good amount of people. Most importantly, other people on the left, who might've been giving them some leeway to that point.

Yeah the left picked up a lot of Generation X free speech liberals in the 80s, 90s, and 2000s.  It's going to be a hard sell to say "Okay, let's ditch free speech so that way someone can't be called fat anymore."  Misgendering someone isn't violence and neither is telling a fat chick to not grab that seventh slice of pizza.  The irony that these people are the ones crying so much over privilege is not lost on society as a whole.

I wouldn't declare victory yet because I imagine this shit will come to a head for the 2016 elections.  If you don't vote for Hillary, you're a misogynist.  The media will screech so hard about Hillary having a vagina that people who may vote for her will vote against her out of spite.

I have a feeling some fee-fees are going to be hurt over this:

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/mar/23/uva-rolling-stone-rape-investigation-suspended-aft/

Basically, remember that Rolling Stone expose that basically brought down a shitstorm on UVA and the frats there?

Welp, the police suspended their investigation because they couldn't find any evidence there was even a party at the particular frat from the case.

GJ nu-liberals, for basically setting your cause back years by not vetting your martyrs first. I know that rape is a huge issue on college campuses and particularly at frats, and you managed to somehow pick exactly the wrong person to blow the lid off the whole thing. Cool. It'll be really super cool when probably a fair amount of girls who get raped on campus think about what happened to "Jackie" and don't ever say a fucking word about it. You fucking dipshits.

But of course, I imagine we'll see the shrillest, most obnoxious voices (none of which will actually be members of organizations that actually HELP rape survivors) quadrupling down since their feelings supercede their actual desire to make sure actual victims aren't marginalized and convinced they should stay silent.

It's certainly typical Rolling Stone MO to just write whatever it wants to fit the narrative they decided on going into a story and do nothing to look at any facts that might dispute it because *~MY OUTRAGE PIECE~*.

Which is sad because IMO even if they constant pull shit like this in terms of the quality of writing (writing an interesting story) they tend to be good but I guess doing actual journalism is really hard???

I'm practically  :allears: for the people who will start into the "She couldn't remember anything right because she has PTSD" or "Well everyone should've believed her anyway!!" because we need to say that 100% of all claimed rapes actually occurred so as to not harm those who were actually raped.

I joke about it, but I certainly am not pro-slavery or anything. But when I found out I had several slave owning ancestors I was like "well, that's interesting."

None of what my very distant ancestors did changes or affects who I am. Sure, you can trace some threads of how people were raised down to you, but I'm pretty sure the fact that King Henry was my ancestor (true) has little bearing on who I am. The fact that Affleck gets hung up on this shows a lot about his self-confidence and very little about his 7x Great Grandfather.

Also lol at Henry Louis Gates: in another article I read on it, he said in a leaked email Affleck's slave owning ancestor "wasn't even a bad guy."

How far you go back on that brah? And up all the lines? Because up until a couple years ago I thought the family history was "Dad's family is from France and Canada, didn't immigrate til after the war, Mom's family were Scotch-Irish and didn't come in til the 1800s and were poor farmers."

Then upon research I found several mid-size plantations with a bunch of slaves, in a couple branches.

Students block Sather Gate to protest police brutality, express campus climate concerns

A group of about 50 students and some community members gathered at Sather Gate on Tuesday, protesting police brutality and what they called a hostile campus atmosphere for the underrepresented minority population.

Initially led by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, the protest was organized as part of a series of coordinated responses nationwide to police brutality. According to Rafael Malik, a member of the network that organized the event, the protest was meant to drum up support for the cause on campus. After Malik and other members of the network left the protest, a diverse group of students continued protesting through the afternoon.

At 11:30 a.m., the group convened outside Sproul Hall and by 1 p.m., more than 50 individuals blocked pedestrian traffic through the passageway under Sather Gate.

On a few occasions, passers-by’s attempts to break through the blockade were met with violent responses. UCPD spokesperson Lt. Marc DeCoulode said there were three reports of assault during the protest, while no arrests were made.


UCPD officers were looking on from a distance throughout the protest, and DeCoulode also noted that the officers were in communication with campus administration before and during the event. Protesters violated campus “time, place and manner” rules governing public forums and rallies, DeCoulode said, by blocking Sather Gate, though UCPD did not take any action.

“It may have been inconvenient, but people did at least have a way to get around,” DeCoulode said.

The protests were largely peaceful. UC Berkeley freshman Luke Thomas said many students “stumbled across the event” and joined the blockade as a spontaneous expression of solidarity because they identified and empathized with the movement.

“I was just walking to class and was told I couldn’t pass,” said senior Janae Castellanos. “So I decided to join them.”

At about 2:20 p.m., the group of protesters involved with the Stop Mass Incarceration Network departed to attend a similar demonstration in Oakland. Afterward, no one leader was directly responsible for the actions of the group blocking Sather Gate, nor was any student group affiliated.

Cori McGowens, a member of the campus Black Student Union, said there was no affiliation between BSU and the protest.

While many protested police brutality, freshman Aumunique Borja spoke out against what she perceived to be a hostile campus climate for the black population and said she felt like an “endangered species” on campus.

Throughout the afternoon, chants ranged from repeated affirmations that “black lives matter” to denunciations of the campus, such as: “UC Berkeley is racist as hell — shut it down, shut it down.”

Students block Sather Gate to protest police brutality, express campus climate concerns

A group of about 50 students and some community members gathered at Sather Gate on Tuesday, protesting police brutality and what they called a hostile campus atmosphere for the underrepresented minority population.

Initially led by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, the protest was organized as part of a series of coordinated responses nationwide to police brutality. According to Rafael Malik, a member of the network that organized the event, the protest was meant to drum up support for the cause on campus. After Malik and other members of the network left the protest, a diverse group of students continued protesting through the afternoon.

At 11:30 a.m., the group convened outside Sproul Hall and by 1 p.m., more than 50 individuals blocked pedestrian traffic through the passageway under Sather Gate.

On a few occasions, passers-by’s attempts to break through the blockade were met with violent responses. UCPD spokesperson Lt. Marc DeCoulode said there were three reports of assault during the protest, while no arrests were made.


UCPD officers were looking on from a distance throughout the protest, and DeCoulode also noted that the officers were in communication with campus administration before and during the event. Protesters violated campus “time, place and manner” rules governing public forums and rallies, DeCoulode said, by blocking Sather Gate, though UCPD did not take any action.

“It may have been inconvenient, but people did at least have a way to get around,” DeCoulode said.

The protests were largely peaceful. UC Berkeley freshman Luke Thomas said many students “stumbled across the event” and joined the blockade as a spontaneous expression of solidarity because they identified and empathized with the movement.

“I was just walking to class and was told I couldn’t pass,” said senior Janae Castellanos. “So I decided to join them.”

At about 2:20 p.m., the group of protesters involved with the Stop Mass Incarceration Network departed to attend a similar demonstration in Oakland. Afterward, no one leader was directly responsible for the actions of the group blocking Sather Gate, nor was any student group affiliated.

Cori McGowens, a member of the campus Black Student Union, said there was no affiliation between BSU and the protest.

While many protested police brutality, freshman Aumunique Borja spoke out against what she perceived to be a hostile campus climate for the black population and said she felt like an “endangered species” on campus.

Throughout the afternoon, chants ranged from repeated affirmations that “black lives matter” to denunciations of the campus, such as: “UC Berkeley is racist as hell — shut it down, shut it down.”
The protests waned about 4 p.m. Campus senior Jonathan Verdugo said protesters left to avoid any physical altercation after students, who were angry with the demonstrators, started “bull-rushing” them.

You Americans have some sort of issue when it comes to racism that me and most of the world can't understand; (lefty) whites feel that because some great-great-great grandfather of theirs owned slaves they are now to "repent" for the "atrocities" that they committed, and with blacks it's even worse, my country actually showed some time ago news about Ferguson (mostly as an afterthought) and my mother's first reaction was "Why do Americans always try to make it about race?"

It's baffling to far east western europeans (the non pozzed variety) like myself why you make such an issue about race, it's not like in europe there wasn't slave work and our blacks don't complain about the injustices they feel because some ancestor of theirs felt the whip.

Is it some institutionalized thing?

Because there's a political party in this country (the one that was pro-slave ownership and pro-Jim Crow actually) that has subsequently tricked an entire race of people into thinking they have their best interests at heart. The white followers of this party generally think they are doing the right thing by pandering to them and making up for "past wrongs," but the leaders of the party want to destroy the black Americans' initiative, industriousness along with their nuclear families so they can make them 100% dependent on their policies/government and therefore get them to vote as a block. In order to keep them in line they have discovered it's best to constantly stir up or manufacture racial animus and blame it on non-party-members or members of other races.

Blacks in this country still live on plantations run by Democrats, they're just called projects now; and instead of making them do work for free they just pay them a pittance to vote a certain way and not work.

As an American, dunno if this is totally accurate, but here's my take on it.

Unlike other countries, where chattel slavery was at one point explicitly legal at one or another in some form for a century or two at least (oftentimes more) and thus getting all bitchy about it seems stupid in hindsight, America is a young nation that had never been happy with the idea as a whole ever since we were founded (the founders of the Constitution had to engage in some creative compromise just to get both sides to agree to let it be before anyone at the convention would sign the dotted line), and since then slavery always was a contentious subject up until the end of the Civil War, where it legally ended despite the wishes of the defeated half of the nation, and Reconstruction was such a clusterfuck it only made everyone more bitter, segregation was made legal after Plessy v. Ferguson in response, that too was eventually overturned in the 1960's to more outrage, and all the bad blood still hasn't gone away from that.

In short, America's history is too short for everyone to let bygones be bygones yet.

I have ancestors who fought for the Confederacy - don't know if any were wealthy enough to own slaves - but I recently found out about multiple men related to me from the side of the family that stayed in Germany who fought for Nazi Germany, including an SS Sturmbannführer and a guy in charge of a panzer company which got nicknamed with our uncommon last name.

Guess I have to apologize to blacks and the Jews now for what people related to me did. :librage:

It is a political ideology based around lack of religion that ironically enough ended up adopting religious ideas and practices based on social science. White is a diverse group of hundreds of nations and cultures all grouped in to a single package so that they can be cast as the bad guy or "non-believers" of this cult.

Slavery is the white peoples original sin they all must individually atone for since there has not been an equivalent white Jesus dying on the cross event to gain them forgiveness.

Patriarchy is the males original sin and the females equivalent to slavery all men are oppressors and always will be.

These combined allows them to explain away the accomplishments and contributions that white males have made to society and history as not being good enough to counteract their damage and oppression.

Of course white isn't a real race and patriarchy isn't a real thing but any evidence you offer to disprove this is invalid because it was created by the white males.

My favorite quote on Black advancement:

Quote
"I admit freely enough that, by careful breeding, supervision of environment and education, extending over many generations, it might be possible to make an appreciable improvement in the stock of the American negro, for example, but I must maintain that this enterprise would be a ridiculous waste of energy, for there is a high-caste white stock ready at hand, and it is inconceivable that the negro stock, however carefully it might be nurtured, could ever even remotely approach it. The educated negro of today is a failure, not because he meets insuperable difficulties in life, but because he is a negro. He is, in brief, a low-caste man, to the manner born, and he will remain inert and inefficient until fifty generations of him have lived in civilization. And even then, the superior white race will be fifty generations ahead of him."

Quote
Recently, the internet somehow found out that Ben Affleck had asked PBS not to include a scene of him discovering that one of his ancestors owned slaves in his episode of Finding Your Roots. The show is about using DNA technology and genealogical research to trace a famous person’s family history in order to find interesting things to say about them for an hour. During this process, PBS happened to find evidence that one of Affleck’s ancestors was a slave owner. At Affleck’s request, his episode—titled “Roots Of Freedom,” because irony is the best—left that part out.

Now Affleck has posted a message on Facebook explaining why he asked PBS to make this edit to his family history, and why he’s admitting the truth now. Basically and unsurprisingly, Affleck says he was “embarrassed” by this revelation. “The very thought left a bad taste in my mouth,” he said in the Facebook note, which is why he decided he’d rather keep it a secret. However, Affleck says he regrets that choice, adding “we deserve neither credit nor blame for our ancestors and the degree of interest in this story suggests that we are, as a nation, still grappling with the terrible legacy of slavery.” He goes on to say that he’s happy his family history is getting people to talk about slavery, even if he doesn’t like knowing that one of his ancestors—a man from Georgia named Benjamin Cole—owned slaves.

Affleck also used his Facebook post to respond to accusations that he was censoring Finding Your Roots by making his request. He says that the show “isn’t a news program,” and that it was assumed that the show wouldn’t include things things like, say, whether or not your family owned slaves. PBS has said that it is now investigating this issue, but host/producer Henry Louis Gates, Jr. released a statement saying that he and his staff were simply “focused on what we felt were the most interesting aspects of [Affleck’s] ancestry.”

I don't get it :jesse:

Its because the democrats have decided that to stay in power they will be the new owners of blacks.  They have made modern day blacks into perpetual victims utterly reliant on the democrats and their free hand outs.  The democrats want a weak willed black community who doesn't have its act together, that is incapable of running their own affairs so the democratic party can come in and save the day, giving them free hand outs, lowered standards, and infinite fucking chances whenever they do something wrong.

The black community is worse off now than they were in the 1960's because of the democrats policies to make the black community into a victim class.  They invented this critical race theory to back up their assertions that all blacks are inferior to whites.  Since its popular now to say everyone is equal, they have to come up with some reason as to why blacks underperform consistantly in the USA.  The reason they chose is slavery, and they teach blacks from birth that their whole problems are because of whites being racist and because of slavery.  They use pseudo intellectuals and half truths to rewrite history to show this view, and demonize anyone who doesn't agree with them in their anti white hugbox.

The USA is pozzed beyond belief, and I just hope some republican or independent person gets elected and changes things around.  Not a huge fan of republicans either because they have their own agenda. neither republican or democrat cares about the people, only the votes and power they can get.

They make it all about race because it reinforces their claims that blacks are opressed.  The problem is that with modern technology, cell phones and cloud storage, it is getting harder and harder for their narrative to be the only one out there, and when they make outlandish claims we can easily review the facts and call them out on their lies and misrepresntations. 

Unfortunately they have captured much of the youth into beleiveing Democrats are for young people and minorities and even have their agenda taught in schools as mandatory views to teach.  They hide all evidence of white slavery, and downplay severely the elements of whtie slavery they can't outright supress.  Most American schoolchildren don't even know that whites used to be slaves because the public American school system downplays the opression and hardships whites went through in order to accentuate what blacks went through.

tl;dr Blame the Democrat party for making blacks into a perpetual victim class utterly dependent on Democrat social programs.  They have to believe that they are victmis, so they make every incident they can about race and push the view that the black/minority was injustly targetted by white racism in order to make their party line seem relevant still.  They teach kids from birth now their view that blacks are perpetual victims and refuse to teach them the truth of slavery because it would undermine their power structure of black voters.

Ferguson in response, that too was eventually overturned in the 1960's to more outrage, and all the bad blood still hasn't gone away from that.

In short, America's history is too short for everyone to let bygones be bygones yet.
Wrong.

America's history is plenty long enough to let bygones be bygones.  We could easily do that if the parties that be wanted bygones to be let bygones.  The democratic party refuses to let bygones be bygones and teaches all blacks and whites that while they are both equal whites are still racist and holding blacks back.  That the incarcaration rates of blacks are because of white racism and not because of poor personal choices.  That the black graduation rate is low not because the black communities do not place an emphasis on education but because of a racist school system that is harder on blacks than it is on whites.

They make everything about race so they can been viewed by the blacks and latinos and all minorities as the ones who are fighting the evil republicans and racist whites for them.  They get, and have, the minority vote because too many blacks are indoctrinated from birth to beleive that blacks in the USA are all victims of racism by whites and that every time they face adversity or hardship it is because of white racists. 

Blame the democratic party for this.  The republicans have done bad shit too, so don't go to them in response.  But it is the democrats and their policies of teaching blacks they are perpetual victims of white racism.  And now modern acedmia is buying that lie and coming up with pseudo intellectual pieces and theories to explain how whites still are holding blacks down and to support the anti white view.  And whites are believing this because they too have been taught from birth this bullshit is true.

It is not because the USA is too young a country, it is because the perpetual victim culture the democratic party enacts on the black communities.  When you take a black out and teach them from birth they can be just as good as anyone and then don't tell them that every time they fail its because of whites, they will make something of themselves.  it takes work, and they will never learn personal responsibility when the democrats teach them they have no personal responsibility because all whites are responsible for all their actions.

The swastika is also a generic religious symbol, not just Hitler's favorite logo, but your remark is still pretty lol.

From what I gather the actual swastika is an inverted version of the religious symbol:

You mean flipped and rotated.  But if you've seen more than a dozen temples in Asia you'd know those symbols are on there in every possible orientation.

I love 'microagression' as another term that's exactly as fucking stupid as it sounds.

Just like 'mansplaining,' 'lived experiences,' 'triggered,' 'rape culture' etc, if you think about what the words actually mean, the entire SJW vocabulary seems like self-parody that they've been fooled into repeating.

A microagression's value is (clearly) one millionth of an 'aggression'. So, if you can average 2 or 3 interactions with people per hour, 16 hours a day for 75 years and manage to see a microagression in every single fucking one, that could add up to one full aggression over the course of a lifetime.

Since words on paper and screens can also inflict microaggressions, the internet has accelerated this process by orders of magnitude, and you could conceivably collect a full aggression in just a few years, if you're a proper cunt.

If you take a step back and actually see the words and vocabulary the SJW's are using, its hilarious.  George Carlin had a great bit about them using language to obfuscate the meaning of their words.  Language should be used to explain ideas, but SJW's use it to hide their meaning.  Using the most words for the least actual meaning.

Soft language for soft people.  Lucily I have never encountered an SJW in full SJW mode in real life.  I doubt I could keep a strait face, I'd think it was satire and start cracking up if someone tried to use those words in my presence with a strait face.

This accurate, at least for me. I only ever see people like this on the internet or maybe on TV even though I don't watch it often. I'm sure a lot of that depends on where you live. I live in a middle class working neighborhood. No one I know around here has time to give a rat's ass about SJW causes because they're too busy working, raising their family, and doing fun things on their days off. This is because they have a basic grasp of the realities and responsibilities of life. We work for what we have and don't expect the world or our environment to bend itself to our will.

SJWs live in this broken part of their brain (I know, the whole thing, right?) where they are constantly oppressed -- mainly by people like us -- and EVERYTHING NEGATIVE that happens to them is totally not their fault and happened because of the CisHet Patriarchy. I honestly think SJWs have a really tenuous grip on reality.

SJW's don't live in reality.  Whenever evidence contradicts their dumb ass opinions they ignore it or claim its wrong and move on.  They can't back up their opinion with logic or facts.  Its like arguing with a feminist, they are so off base from reality that it is impossible to use actual events and facts and stats to disprove them.

SJW: cops are assassinating black people
normal person: statitics actually show more whites are killed by cops than blacks
SJW: You are wrong those are racist stats you heard that from a racist you are a racist racist racist RACIST

SJW's are really easy to troll in real life because they can't live and exist exactly as mandated by all their retarded dogma, it's just not possible. If you know their playbook just point out when someone does something haram and the rest of the group will probably agree that PersonX just did a really shitty thing. PersonX will now try to explain how they obviously didn't mean it and blah blah blah, it can be pretty entertaining especially if you're drinking.

An easy way to get the ball rolling is to pull up an interesting picture you took on your phone and hand it over, if they start flicking through to other pictures then you can point out that they've just invaded your privacy and that's a really shitty thing to do, you were only showing them that one picture, the jury of their peers will probably agree and shame will be dished out.

And everyone should experience being accused of mansplaining in real life, it's pretty good.

Post by: LITERALLY A RAPIST on May 03, 2015, 02:04:51 PM
the only SJW i know IRL is a late 40s woman who just finished off her PhD in the same lab as my wife about 3 or 4 years ago. she's been working at a lab in europe for the last few years. she never actually talks about social justice issues when im present, only to my wife, probably because my wife doesn't keep up on politics/whatever and won't really argue. she's very much a if you don't think this is as big of a problem as I do, you're part of the problem person. she lectured my wife on the dangers of robin thicke's song and rape culture, and accused my wife of supporting rape culture when she said she didn't think it was a big deal. other than that, she brings it up at the most random times. i posted on FB once something like "goals for presentation: crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentations of their women" and she posted "so you only have straight males and lesbians for enemies? best of luck on your presentation! :)"

she's big on talking about sexism in academia, but when she had a strong case for being the victim of it (being kicked out of a lab by a guy who has not once graduated a single woman from his lab and found excuses to kick them out after decades of having a lab) didn't do anything about it. she was in a romantic relationship and living with a traditional indian professor who is sexist as fuck, and even was married behind her back because of some weird indian arranged marriage thing so that his parent's friends daughter could have american citizenship. she still didn't leave him and continued to stay shacked up with him. she's constantly broke as fuck and my wife would give her money so that she could eat lunch. at our wedding i gave her 20 bucks so that she could manage to pay for a train back to her hotel. keep in mind that this was after she had been working for 2-3 years. she's never paid back any of this or did things for my wife like pick up the tab for lunch or whatever.

in fairness to her though, she did do a lot of inner school mentoring when she lived in the city, but she rationalized all the problems and behavior as being the fault of white people.

i think one of the funniest reactions from her was when she was staying at our apartment a few years back. i was talking about how i sold my old semi-auto rifle and got a bolt-action for deer hunting. she had this terrified look on her face, and asked if the gun was in the apartment. i told her it wasn't (left it at my parent's house because i bought it there and was waiting for paperwork to go through) and she instantly looked relieved. the irony is that she was in the navy for a few years like 20 years ago, and knows that i was in the army for a few years and understand how to safely handle a weapon. but you could see the pain and discomfort on her face in the idea that there might be firearm in the apartment, as if while she was sleeping it would crawl out of the closet and stand over her bed, locked and loaded.

As far as I give a shit, they're just short dudes who look like they used to be emo, back in high school. Tons of gays here and tons of gay jokes. As long as they're not along the lines of "Hey guys, what did one faggot say to the other faggot!?" it's all good.

I'm in the hornet's nest, as far as a racist pants shitting SASS poster is concerned. I'm yet to have someone raise an eyebrow at anything I've said or "correct" my opinions/statements. We all tread lightly when we discuss political events and keep the scope our thoughts and opinions really broad.

What I'm getting at is they don't exist in actual society. They're all holed up in their apartments, parent's basements or dorm rooms, spewing shit to the internet.

One time I heard some people talking about gamergate, at a bar. I turned around, said "Everyone involved is a piece of shit," looking to poke the bee's nest. The replies were "Haha! Yep, pretty much!" and "Oh! Absolutely!"

People only care about sports and booze. Nobody gives a shit about anyone else's feels, offline.

Sometimes your special helper character the Catholic priest comes in and fucks the kids for bonus points. After that a Rabi weighs the bucket of clits and foreskin for accurate payout.

The left eats itself: legal consequences edition.

My Title IX Inquisition (https://archive.is/knW9p)

TL:DR some female professor who wrote a perhaps ill advised article (https://archive.is/tJjeZ) about university codes relating to professor student relations ended up getting smacked with Title IX lawsuits from multiple sources, much to her bewilderment. Turns out Title IX is basically the way SJWs can inflict legal consequences on people who dare voice wrongthink within certain contexts (in this case, academia).

Some choice quotes below, but it is worth reading.

Quote
Still, I assumed that academic freedom would prevail. I also sensed the students weren’t going to come off well in the court of public opinion, which proved to be the case; mocking tweets were soon pouring in. Marching against a published article wasn’t a good optic — it smacked of book burning, something Americans generally oppose. Indeed, I was getting a lot of love on social media from all ends of the political spectrum, though one of the anti-PC brigade did suggest that, as a leftist, I should realize these students were my own evil spawn.

 :adam:

That is a particularly funny line to have at the beginning of the article when the entire rest of the article is basically an incredibly verbose way of saying "what is this bullshit and where did it come from?"

Quote
Things seemed less amusing when I received an email from my university’s Title IX coordinator informing me that two students had filed Title IX complaints against me on the basis of the essay and "subsequent public statements" (which turned out to be a tweet)

Quote
I wrote back to the Title IX coordinator asking for clarification: When would I learn the specifics of these complaints, which, I pointed out, appeared to violate my academic freedom? And what about my rights — was I entitled to a lawyer? I received a polite response with a link to another website. No, I could not have an attorney present during the investigation, unless I’d been charged with sexual violence. I was, however, allowed to have a "support person" from the university community there, though that person couldn’t speak. I wouldn’t be informed about the substance of the complaints until I met with the investigators.

Apparently the idea was that they’d tell me the charges, and then, while I was collecting my wits, interrogate me about them. The term "kangaroo court" came to mind.

Quote
We finally agreed to schedule a Skype session in which they would inform me of the charges and I would not answer questions. I felt the flush of victory, though it was short-lived. I said I wanted to record the session; they refused but said I could take notes. The reasons for these various interdictions were never explained. I’d plummeted into an underground world of secret tribunals and capricious, medieval rules, and I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone about it.

Quote
Much of this remains puzzling to me, including how someone can bring charges in someone else’s name, who is allowing intellectual disagreement to be redefined as retaliation, and why a professor can’t write about a legal case that’s been nationally reported, precisely because she’s employed by the university where the events took place.

Quote
And there are a lot of grudges these days. The reality is that the more colleges devote themselves to creating "safe spaces" — that new watchword — for students, the more dangerous those campuses become for professors. It’s astounding how aggressive students’ assertions of vulnerability have gotten in the past few years. Emotional discomfort is regarded as equivalent to material injury, and all injuries have to be remediated.

That was our only face-to-face meeting, though there were numerous phone calls, emails, and requests for further substantiation, including copies of emails and tweets. I tried to guess what all this was costing — two lawyers flying back and forth to conduct interviews of the complainants, myself, and an expanding list of witnesses, review the sources for a 5,200-word article, adjudicate their findings, and compose a thorough report. I’m no expert on legal fees, but I was pretty sure the meter was ticking in $10,000 increments.

:smalljewrub:

Quote
At the end of the interrogation, the investigators asked if I wanted to file my own retaliation complaint against the student who’d revealed the charges. I said that I believed all parties involved were using the process for political purposes. I declined to press charges against anyone.

They’d issue a report on their findings within 60 days, they said, though on what basis I had no idea. The standard that applied was "preponderance of evidence," they’d explained — "more likely than not" as opposed to "beyond a reasonable doubt" — but that seemed pretty vague. Note that I was never actually presented with any of this evidence. Given that the investigators doubled as judge and jury, and the extralegal nature of the proceedings, I wished I’d been more ingratiating.

Quote
I also find it beyond depressing to witness young women on campuses — including aspiring intellectuals! — trying to induce university powers to shield them from the umbrages of life and calling it feminism.

Quote
As of this writing, I have yet to hear the verdict on my case, though it’s well past the 60-day time frame. In the meantime, new Title IX complaints have been filed against the faculty-support person who accompanied me to the session with the investigators. As a member of the Faculty Senate, whose bylaws include the protection of academic freedom — and believing the process he’d witnessed was a clear violation of academic freedom — he’d spoken in general terms about the situation at a senate meeting. Shortly thereafter, as the attorneys investigating my case informed me by phone, retaliation complaints were filed against him for speaking publicly about the matter (even though the complaints against me had already been revealed in the graduate student’s article), and he could no longer act as my support person. Another team of lawyers from the same firm has been appointed to conduct a new investigation.

I deal with generally pretty intelligent, high functioning college students at work who span both left and right. The commonalities are they seem to have an incredibly smug sense of absolute righteousness on everything--they know best and are condescending if you don't agree with them. Simple things, like interpretations of company policy, merchandising plans, etc are all things they have opinions on and if you don't do it their way and you have the authority to have the final say it's :rolleyes:: "Oh, OK, IF YOU SAY SO." with a knowing shake of their head and the unspoken "but you'll see I was right when you fail."
:goonbeer:
They also can't deal with setbacks well. At school, they can do this Title IX stuff, or got to student mediation groups, protest or whatever. They have an idea that they don't have quite that power in the real world, but knowing that they seem to just resolve to quit. "Well, they'll see. I'm just going to quietly leave. I'll act like everything is normal, and then I'll just walk out! Maybe not tomorrow, but in a month, when they least suspect it! Then they'll be screwed, but I'll never go back! Maybe they'll learn a lesson!" I've had a couple pull this and I believe several others are planning to over my perceived injustices like "making them work," or "not letting them use their cellphones," or "not being cool like the last manager." It's like the Professor Chaos Theory of Labor Relations.
(http://i.imgur.com/5VroqEq.gif)
"Won't let me go on break before Susie, even though I was here first today? Well I'll call in next Tuesday! MUAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

The funny thing is they don't think I see right through their monkeyshines. Same when they "helpfully suggest" things to me, or "Just Let Me Know, Some of The Employees Are Saying Blah Blah" in a transparent attempt to manipulate me into doing something they want. They think they are brilliant power players or psychological chessmasters and I have no clue about their secret agendas.
:lolno:

I know adults have been bemoaning the state of college students forever, most notably in the 60s, so I hesitate to say "it's never been this bad" but I really cannot remember us being so smug and sure we knew everything about the world when I was getting out of school 15 or so years ago. I can't imagine how horrible it must be to be a professor on a campus in this environment.

Yup.

These fuckwit social science/liberal arts faculty created this atmosphere, nurtured it, and protected it from outside interference by hiding behind bullshit regulations EXACTLY LIKE TITLE IX. And now they are just beside themselves that the facist little inmates they created have taken over their asylum and are using their tools against them for frivolous reasons.

:tom:


Because of the budget sequester (thanks for that idea Obama, LOL) federal funding for research is drying up and things at research institutions are getting much more competitive and efficient, which is how they should be. If you want taxpayer money to research cancer treatments or ALS or whatever you should only get it if you are a cream of the crop researcher and know what the fuck you're doing.

On the pozzademia side, republicans control like 70% of the state legislatures now and an assload of governorships, so they are squeezing the lifeblood of these fucking leftist do-nothing social science faculty as quickly as they can get away with it. It's way past time for this bullshit to happen. The sooner the higher ed bubble bursts and has a real market correction, the better.

I know I have been and/or can be a smug bastard, but during my high school jobs and jobs thereafter to present, I have never once shown up late to work, never called in sick, never called in saying I couldn't show up to work for some bullshit reason, whatever. 
I'd wager every generation has always had this sort of smug "i'm a bad ass you can't tell me what to do attitude", but at least my parents, grandparents, uncles, and other farm hands instilled in me some fucking work ethic.  Phrases like, "Take pride in your work", "The only thing you truly own in life is your reputation", "Do your best no matter what because you never know who is looking and will open a door of opportunity for you", etc. have all been said by my elders.

The problem is if you showed that ad to Gen Y kids they'd all say they agree with the stuff in it, and they'd abide by it, but then they'd do the opposite anyway and :bieber: out if you called them on it.

Calling in sick is a big one. They don't even think they should have to give a reason why they call out, because clearly if they need to, they need to. I had an assistant manager tell me they didn't like to ask employees why they were calling out because "it's an invasion of privacy." That same one, when I expressed mild doubt to them that a sick employee was really sick, proceeded to tell that employee what I'd said (in confidence, manager to manager) and said employee then ragequit because I was "talking disrespectfully about her to other employees" and that was inappropriate and she was uncomfortable working in such a horrible environment.

Before you worked a shit job because you could support a family with one. You also worked that job until they fired you or the store went under or burned down, and if you worked there long enough you were going to get promoted.

Gen Y was raised to be comfortable and safe (ie all the political correctness crap that we've been seeing since the 90's). Instead of how they should have been raised, how to deal with life and survive autonomously. This plus the everlasting recession, Gen Y is grossly unprepared to handle the world. All growth is painful, and since they have been sheltered: Gen Y is in for hell. Gen Y will not have a better life then their parents and I have no ideal what the future holds for them other than the 'herbivore male' phenomenon.

Another way of looking at it: what are the odds that the place you're at will continuously be the best place to work for several decades? Pretty close to zero, unless you're the CEO. And what are the odds that you're the absolute best person the company can have for your job for several decades? Also close to zero.

Now that we're past the "99% of people are farmers" and "everyone who isn't a farmer is a human cog in a factory" phases of our economy, it only makes sense for people to shift around/get shifted around more. If you're doing it right, you'll get ahead faster changing jobs every few years; bigger network, more skills, etc. Obviously there's a balance to be had on both sides, but people lamenting that we no longer have a "my dad/grandpa worked at the factory pulling the same lever for 35 years and he had pride!" situation are delusional.

If you dont match the full % your company offers, you are a dumb :yoof:

I mean its not like you even have to wait 30+ years to access that 401k money.  You can borrow against it at age 30 for a down payment on a house if you wanted.  It's not really a big deal.  If your company matches 5% thats really just a 5% pay raise.  Not matching is like saying "no, I demand you pay me 5% less money!"

That was sort of my point: pretty much no one goes from broom pusher to Vice president anymore... at least not at the same company. If you want upward mobility you pretty much need to job hop.

There are exceptions, of course. Costco hires from within and works hard to retain talent; you don't hear people complain about working for Costco. Amazon pays you leave.


Part of it is also that people are more mobile and the world is smaller; before someone would leave their small Iowa town for New York City, and they might as well have moved to the moon: occassional letters, maybe a phone call on the holidays. People used to live and die in the same town they were born in. Now people go through addresses like they go through underwear.

my wife's just starting out in her career and i remind her of shit like that. no matter how cool you are with your boss and how great of a worker you are, it means jack shit to the guy sitting in an office six states away who makes decisions on who to fire.

Every one of those bullet points surely has a story behind it, and most of them is probably some lazy faggot or something, but the ones about never pointing out the chef's mistakes, and if you have a good idea phrase it like it was the chef's idea, fuck you nigga.

aside from the stuff about sucking the Chef's dick most of that boils down to "be observant" and "don't be like the last few retards we hired who always got caught with their pants down by a rush because they were masters of spending 40 minutes talking and 20 minutes working" with a side of "if you've never cooked before please don't come in and blubber about the long shitty hours"

"YES CHEF" is for stuff like getting dopes fresh out of culinary school to recognize that they can be a Food Network Star once they make the hop from Cook to Chef and until then please shut the fuck up and do your prep

some of that shit makes sense. But seriously fuck working at a place where I have to show up before chef determines I'm sick enough. Especially since my guess is the answer is "You made it in, you're not that sick!"; so also fuck eating there because I don't need plague carriers making my dinner.

The chef just sounds like a fucking douche I'd hate to work for: "Make sure not to make chef look bad or hurt his fee-fee's by pointing out when he's retarded!" Granted being a fucking douche covers 90% of all chefs, so it could just be odds being on my side."

If a place has a rule of "you have to show up so we can judge if you're sick" and you have any ounce of self respect, you shouldn't work there. I already get kinda pissy that my current colleagues come in with the fucking flu, I'd rather companies stop encouraging that shit.

There's really no reason to do that anymore. A company will drop you like a bad habit the second it will look good to the shareholders. They don't give two shits about you, and you should absolutely job hob at the soonest opportunity if it matches your career goals. You are fucking retarded if you have any loyalty to your employer.

That was sort of my point: pretty much no one goes from broom pusher to Vice president anymore... at least not at the same company. If you want upward mobility you pretty much need to job hop.

There are exceptions, of course. Costco hires from within and works hard to retain talent; you don't hear people complain about working for Costco. Amazon pays you leave.


Part of it is also that people are more mobile and the world is smaller; before someone would leave their small Iowa town for New York City, and they might as well have moved to the moon: occassional letters, maybe a phone call on the holidays. People used to live and die in the same town they were born in. Now people go through addresses like they go through underwear.
Meritocracy is dead. I know people who have been fired for being too good at their jobs. They kept making quotas and earning their bonuses and the company decided that they were costing too much.

my wife's just starting out in her career and i remind her of shit like that. no matter how cool you are with your boss and how great of a worker you are, it means jack shit to the guy sitting in an office six states away who makes decisions on who to fire.

These niggas need to know that ultimately you get what you pay for.  Even if that job posting is a joke, I have seen places that have crazy demands for minimum wage + $2/hr type of jobs and it's hilarious.  At $9.50 an hour, you're not going to get much in terms of quality.  At best, you might get an ex-felon who wants to turn his life around or a housewife who is working part time to save up for Christmas presents or a vacation.  Typically, you get niggers, white trash in between their meth binges, and lazy fucks who just want to do the bare minimum to scrape by.

The worst is working for a chef who owns his own place. I worked as kitchen staff for this guy who opened his own place and he was even more high-strung and douchey than normal because he owed so much money I don't think he slept at night. It really made him a cheap bastard too.

this piece is great, and will of course be ignored/decried by most of the left

Quote
Instead of focusing on the rightness or wrongness (or even acceptability) of the materials we reviewed in class, the complaint would center solely on how my teaching affected the student's emotional state. As I cannot speak to the emotions of my students, I could not mount a defense about the acceptability of my instruction. And if I responded in any way other than apologizing and changing the materials we reviewed in class, professional consequences would likely follow.

i can't do more quotes now but it has great section headings like The real problem: a simplistic, unworkable, and ultimately stifling conception of social justice

tl;dr college professors being formally reprimanded for offending students' feelings by covering boilerplate course material

He knew it would make him popular and get a rousing reaction, because most of the senior girls were dating dudes who were already out of college. Like, mid-20's dudes rolling up to a high school prom and shit. Their parents didn't approve, so he was going for the 'fuck you dad' vote, and got it.

How old is that kid?  Did they really come up with that shit on their own or was it programing from the teachers?


Way back in fucking kindergarten I had to do an art project for Columbus day.  Guess what my picture was of?   A white guy on a ship, leading a bunch of brown guys around by a rope.  The brown guys had their hands cut off and blood was shooting out.


Where the fuck do you think I got the idea that that was an appropriate picture to draw for Columbus day?  Did my 6 year old self read some history books and study this on my own or did it come straight from the fucking teacher's mouth.   I was in god damn KINDERGARTEN for fucks sake.

The brainwashing starts really fucking early and it is unrelenting.  They don't stop beating you over the head with this SJW shit in the public school system.  I mean Jesus fuck, I just met a chick at a party last week who was a high school teacher.  She was a really hippy looking chick too.  I asked her what subjects she taught.  Guess what she said?   "I teach two different classes right now actually.  US History and a class on Social Justice"

AN ENTIRE CLASS ON SOCIAL JUSTICE.    I wonder what class they got rid of to make room for the Social Justice class?  How much you want to bet this isnt an elective either and everyone is required to take it in order to graduate?

And could you even imagine what this  :goonette:'s US History class is like?  Of course its going to be 90% social justice anyways.  How much of her history class do you think is devoted to the evils of the American empire?  :rolleyes:

On a related topic what are the percentages of Americans who take advantage of company sponsored 401k matches if offered at their jobs?  I know I'm not going to be at my company for more than 2-3 years but I have been trying to max out my match as best I can, especially since it's 100% vested.
So far the 3 jobs I've been at it's hovered between 30-40% eligible employees contributing at all. I'd say about 15% hit the max match. It's probably higher now at my last place since they were switching to the "everyone is enrolled and you have to opt out", but during one of the info sessions some woman interrupted the presenter before he even finished the opt out sentence asking him if she can opt out so who knows.

Where I work (full of engineers and technical staff), the general consensus for retirement is that the time they start thinking about retirement is at 45 when they realize that oh shit retirement is just around the corner.  Most of them don't contribute anything to their 401k, let alone max matching, reaching the $18k limit, or additional retirement contributions like an IRA or HSA.  They should know about the benefits of compounding interest but a lot of these guys/girls didn't grow up with much so their 20s and 30s are spent splurging on new cars, decking themselves out on all the latest and greatest turkey hunting gear, or traveling to a new country every year.  I'm not saying you need to scrimp and save and not do anything fun but at least do the employer max match; that's just free money you're missing out on.

Apparently when I was in kindergarten or 1st grade I once came home in tears and asked my mom if I was going to get AIDS and die, because this was the very early 90s and they were really pushing the "anyone can get AIDS, it's totally not 90% dudes taking it up the ass" angle. I didn't even know what homosexuality was until around middle school because I lived in a quiet suburban community where people minded their own business and it wasn't something talked about at home, but someone at the school decided it was real important to make little kids understand that they too could get AIDS.

I got the talk in first grade from my parents because of how hard the media and school pushed the AIDS panic shit in the mid-80's. That and seeing Ryan White with AIDS was terrifying to a six year old.

I was sure I'd get AIDS from going on sleep overs or from Mosquitos or scabs in the pool or on and on.

That said school also pushed really hard about how bad the holocaust was, and one girl piped up with how her grand parents escaped Europe before WWII. She was always a huge bitch and pushed people and did shitty stuff to others. I got in huge trouble for saying out loud "I wish your Grand Parents hadn't escaped so you wouldn't be in this class."

I started off third grade by being packed into an all Spanish speaking class with five other white kids, complete with Spanish speaking teacher, to promote "diversity" or some such nonsense. I spent the first week complaining to both parents how I couldn't understand my new teacher. After a week my mom finally caves and calls the school and was horrified to see I wasn't exaggerating.

Then I had the crazy feminist teaching my 8th grade class that routinely berated the "men" present, 13 year-old boys, for societal problems. This was in Massachusetts in the 90's.

Apparently when I was in kindergarten or 1st grade I once came home in tears and asked my mom if I was going to get AIDS and die, because this was the very early 90s and they were really pushing the "anyone can get AIDS, it's totally not 90% dudes taking it up the ass" angle.

I used to watch Captain Planet when I was a kid and I'd get worried about pollution and shit and my grandmother would just make fun of me, saying "the planet's not going anywhere."  She also bought me Obama's book, telling me "you need to know your enemy."

Who knows what kind of faggot I would be without depression-era grandparents sharing their wisdom.

in a high school class I was in (a literature class through a university for college credit), every book we read and wrote about and discussed for the class was in some way related to minorities.
we read a book about niggers, a book about half-nigger half-white people, another book about niggers, a book about native americans, a book about gays, and the lone exception to the rule was As I Lay Dying, but that book is garbage anyways so it doesn't count

We read Othello too but were told Othello was TOTALLY African and black and everyone in it was racist to him (but Shakespeare was still bad because he totally used niggers as props through Othello/as curiosities rather than real people ok)

but the funniest part was that in the class, everyone was white except for two indian kids, because since it was a college class, no niggers signed up for it. shameful white privilege!!! (and yeah we had to read about white privilege, as well as how the Redskins football team is super racist and about how Europeans destroy cultures!)

probably sounds like it's made up but it's all true. I think the fact that the high school didn't make the curriculum is what made it so bad, but it was still awful.

Where I work (full of engineers and technical staff), the general consensus for retirement is that the time they start thinking about retirement is at 45 when they realize that oh shit retirement is just around the corner.  Most of them don't contribute anything to their 401k, let alone max matching, reaching the $18k limit, or additional retirement contributions like an IRA or HSA.  They should know about the benefits of compounding interest but a lot of these guys/girls didn't grow up with much so their 20s and 30s are spent splurging on new cars, decking themselves out on all the latest and greatest turkey hunting gear, or traveling to a new country every year.  I'm not saying you need to scrimp and save and not do anything fun but at least do the employer max match; that's just free money you're missing out on.

Don't worry. By the time this generation retires, all 401Ks and other private retirement funds will have been 'borrowed' by government to pay for more gimmedats. Saving money is racist and privileged you know.

In 2nd grade we made mobiles that showed various things about ourselves, and what I chose for my biggest fear was pollution, because I'd read a whole bunch of stuff about acid rain and whatnot and how the earth was going to become uninhabitable shortly.

By the time I hit middle school I'd started to cotton on to the fact that we weren't seeing the mass extinctions that had been predicted and that things were actually getting a bit cleaner.

We read Othello

This one time when my high school English class was reading Othello, it was the "groggy period" like an hour after lunch/an hour before everyone went home. Basically the "fuck this shit" hour of the day where we were all full from eating and the teacher was burnt out from coffee + retiring at the end of the year.

In the most white-bread town/the most white-bread school, the teacher yawns and goes "Aaron can play Othello" (using the real name cuz fuck you Aaron you piece of shit nigger go throw some more rocks at cars and crank out another kid you goddamn tolken piece of adopted shit.) Anyways, yep, the one nigger in the whole goddamn town gets to read Othello's lines.

I've never seen a class go from nearly asleep to full-on alert, so fast. The backpeddeling was short lived and hilarious. "I-I-I-I didn't mean...." "Yea, I know, honest mistake"

Anyway, when we all come home from school, to visit for the holidays (cept Aaron cuz he never left his parent's house) the running joke is "I wonder how Othello is doing with that child of his."

I save for retirement as if social security didn't exist and I suggest others do the same. If you get it its just gravy. Its not like you are ever gonna collect more than you put in. Whereas what you invest in IRA/401ks will be worth several times more than you put in because its invested rather than spent down the black hole of government spending.

You literally have to get another person to sit across from them and explain to them like a child about how their money would be bettered serviced elsewhere because short of employer auto opt-in pension schemes etc., most are fucking clueless.

The government can implement a "bail-in" plan where the burden of paying off a bank's debts falls on its creditors and shareholders. "Creditors" includes depositors, because technically the money you have in the bank is an unsecured loan.

It'd be a very slim chance of that happening.  The idea of such a thing happening would cause such a massive withdrawal that the :smalljewrub: in charge of investor banks would scream bloody murder before that would happen.  I can see the government raising the social security limit from $118k/yr to something like $1 million, I can see them pushing the retirement age to 70, and basically telling people that they better be saving because you're only going to get a $1000 a month check from Social Security when you retire.

The earnings (or capital gains, whatever) on your contributions aren't taxed, so they could just start taxing those.

God only knows how much time/money/effort/paper you had to spend on any sort of graphs or analysis of any kind. I could not imagine wanting to know how Macy's did the last 3 Christmas seasons and having to go into a big file cabinet with dated folders, in order to find quotes you might have already thrown out.

I remember hearing something about a "Quotetron" in Wolf of Wall Street. That made me imagine some 10 inch screen where the user had to type furiously into a command line then wait five minutes, just to pull basic info. Not a damn clue but I couldn't be more greatful for Google and Morningstar.

As for "this shit should be taught in school." It was. In 5th grade. For 5 days. The ol "mock stock market" assignment that nobody took seriously because nobody had any clue what they were doing. Just picture some braindead 5th grade reading teacher who couldn't understand the basics of stock trading herself, trying to muddle through the layout of a stock quote. The only thing I remember from that assignment was reading the stock section of that day's newspaper, wondering "What am I comparing this to? How am I supposed to know if it's gone up or down over the last few days?" because I literally didn't know you needed access to yesterday's paper or the previous day's paper, in order to figure that shit out.

Wound up saying "fuck it" and picked 5 random stocks. Pretty sure everyone else did the same and the winner of the mock stock contest might as well have been drawn from a lotto ball tumbler.

I don't mean to start a financial discussion derail, but even for the average investor I'd recommend an actively managed mutual fund to smooth out the volatility. Most investors can't stomach the the ups and downs of just owning an index, and there's behavioral research to show that investors sell out at the bottom and buy back in at the top. The S&P 500 is not diversified, you own 500 of the largest US companies, no exposure to the rest of the developed world. Of course you can build a diversified portfolio of index funds properly weighted for your risk-tolerance, but again, the vast majority doesn't do this.

Dolezal said she found a threatening package in the NAACP’s post office box in February, KXLY reported. The city of Spokane later sent out a press release that the package contained racist messages and death threats. The city statement reiterated that it was the ninth hate crime Dolezal had experienced.

“It is deplorable and shocking that Ms. Dolezal should be experiencing hateful and malicious threats. We stand strongly in solidarity with her, as a university and as a campus community,” Eastern Washington University President Mary Cullinan added in a statement.

But postal workers told police the envelope was not timestamped or canceled. The only way the letter could have gotten into the box was if it had been placed there by a post office employee or by someone who had the P.O. Box key.

Dolezal told the station she would never falsify something so serious.

The gubmint ain't gonna steal your 401k lol.  But they will raise taxes and withdrawals are taxable.  Not sure how they can fuck with shit like Roth IRAs that aren't taxed on withdrawals.

All they have to do is pass a law that freezes retirement based investments until the bearer is of retirement age, or freezes contributions for a certain time.  It means you have no ability to pull it out in case you see a stock market crash on the horizon or need the money for something else.  Of course it would destroy any additional 401k or IRA contributions, but there is a lot of money there right now and may be peaking soon since very soon more money is going to be taken out of those funds than is contributed by younger workers who it would hurt the most.  It's also not very likely unless the government gets super desperate for money or the stock market is on the brink of a disastrous crash but it is definitely a way to take your money without overt motions to do so.

Sedanchair, we've found a trans black woman you can aspire to be after you complete your descent into gender reassignment:  http://www.buzzfeed.com/claudiakoerner/a-civil-rights-leader-has-disguised-herself-as-black-for-yea#.ta3Y84WP8

Meet the white girl who pretended to be black for years, passed off her adopted black brother as her son, became head of the local naacp chapter in Spokane and was outed by her parents

This is so over the top that I have trouble believing it isn't some sort of grand troll on the part of buzz feed

Don't have time to read the articles about this at the moment, why exactly did her parents out her?
she kept making up crazier and crazier stories and started involving racially motivated child abuse.

LOL that's exactly what I said.  It won't be rolled out except in a crisis situation.  But considering how many unfunded health care and retirement liabilities are coming in our future, how much the nation is going to be aging in the next 10 years, and how inadequate tax revenues are from the millennials, it's not off the table long term.  My point was just that it is possible for them to take your retirement money without overtly dropping balances to zero.  Hell, there are people alive who were around when gold was "illegal" to own, there's certainly precedent. 

How much shit legislation has already been pushed down the pipe recently (TPP, Obamacare) despite outrage from a huge portion of the public?  If we have a replay of 2008 (and if we do, trust this one will be much, much worse), all they have to do is dial the media spin up to 11 and trot out a bunch of retarded single moms/Laqueeshas/economics "experts" to speak up with a cloud of ignorance and people will buy in.  Sure, everyone smart will immediately stop all voluntary contributions unless they're 10 or less years off retirement, but that's a small price to pay for the money that's already in the pot.

I don't mean to start a financial discussion derail, but even for the average investor I'd recommend an actively managed mutual fund to smooth out the volatility. Most investors can't stomach the the ups and downs of just owning an index, and there's behavioral research to show that investors sell out at the bottom and buy back in at the top. The S&P 500 is not diversified, you own 500 of the largest US companies, no exposure to the rest of the developed world. Of course you can build a diversified portfolio of index funds properly weighted for your risk-tolerance, but again, the vast majority doesn't do this.

PLEASE ignore this. Buy the cheapest fund you can. Actively managed funds do not beat the market. You can buy cheap index funds for other sectors.

The omnipresent practice of denying girls action figures has somehow hit a new low. Remember how in the Jurassic World movie, most of the dinosaurs—especially Chris Pratt’s Raptor squad—were constantly referred to as girls? Well, as Jurassic World action figures, they’ve all been genderswapped into boys.

Yes, the packaging for every single Raptor action figure—as well as most of the other dinosaur figures—refers to each dinosaur as “he,” as seen in this product description from Hasbro’s official site.

I was out with some friends Friday night and one of the guys in our group had recently returned from Afghanistan. He told me more than once this haji would offer the soldiers his sister for $10 USD. I asked if he meant $10 to fuck his sister, and he said "No, $10 and she became your property. That's how much they value women over there."

Unrelated but he also said one of the other guys in his unit would toss pork rinds out the humvee window to the kids to run up for candy. He said they loved 'em.

The original Jurassic Park toys had Ellie Satler who came with a triceratops. And the only reason I got her was because I wanted the goddamn baby triceratops to go with my bigger one.

The new JP toyline has next to zero human figures. It's just two solider guys who come with a tiny pathetic vehicle and a dinosaur. Every other action figure in the series is some sort of Dinosaur.

The Lego toys come with Chris Prat(they're using the same Starlord face for him in this line too) and the female scientist. But the big draw for even the lego sets are the dinosaurs. The vehicles and bases are second rate for the lego toys as well because they have to compensate for all the custom dinosaur parts.

Hell for the official hasbro Toyline they're re-using the original Jurassic Park Compound toy, a toy that's over 20 years old is getting repainted for the new movie and it's coming with the I-Rex.

Because you know what for a dinosaur movie, kids just want the dinosaurs. Everything else they really don't care about.

Hell they're not even releasing stand alone vehicles for the action figures either. Just adult collectible scale models of the jurassic park trucks which can't interact with any of the toys.

Still though the original movie and lost world has the best toys. JW toys got close to recreating the proper dinosaur action figures. But Everything about the original JP toys were great. Sturdy as shit, came with weapons, and the green tour jeep is as iconic as the Delorean or Batmobile.

Yeah it isn't uncommon. The Transformers toy molds were already well over a decade old by the time they were brought over in 1984. My Little Pony was an entire toyline based on re-using the same mold as was He-Man and the masters of the Universe.

Quote
    Often referred to as #SJW on twitter, these people are (according to Roth) the worst. And should be served up on a platter in The Green Inferno…

    Roth: I wanted to write a movie that was about modern activism. I see that a lot of people want to care and want to help, but in general I feel like people don’t really want to inconvenience their own lives. And I saw a lot of people just reacting to things on social media. These social justice warriors. ‘This is wrong, this is wrong, this is wrong.’ And they’re just tweeting and retweeting. They’re not actually doing anything…

    So “Green Inferno” is your reaction to the #SJWs of twitter?

    Roth: Yeah. I actually wrote it, and when I finished the draft Kony 2012 happened. I was like this is it. Everyone is going, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ They’re drinking their mugs going ‘Don’t you care about child soldiers and kids being raped how can you not tweet this video?’ Everyone got so self righteous and publicly shaming…

    But the SJW culture has gotten so out of control. That you feel that everyone, are they doing it because they believe in it? Or do they just want to look like good people?

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/herocomplex/la-et-hc-eli-roth-green-inferno-sjw-20150709-story.html

I know a lot of people dislike Roth, but I'm personally pretty ambivalent about him. I liked Cabin Fever and the first Hostel movie well enough, Hostel 2 not so much. After this, though, I'm a lot more interested about Green Inferno.

Funny anecdote; the movie is an unofficial remake of Cannibal Holocaust, which was a reactionary film against the sensationalist journalism, western self-righteousness and mondo documentaries of the '70s. Now the remake is a reactionary film against SJW's and slacktivism. The more thing change, the more they stay the same.

Unsurprisingly SJWs are trying to block the release of the film, complete with a useless change.org petition: https://www.change.org/p/eli-roth-to-cancel-the-launch-of-the-dehumanizing-film-green-inferno

It doesn't seem to be taking.  He caters to a small niche so it's probably not getting the traction that SJWs are hoping it'd get.

Well it's a gore horror movie. I'm pretty sure there's zero overlap between gorehounds and SJW:s.

I mean SJW goons will bitch and whine about some milquetoast shit like Gallows because in the trailer there's a chick crying, while Cabin fever: Patient Zero has melting bikini bimbos literally ripping each others tits off. Shit'd probably give the damn puritans a heart attack.

The absolute greatest part of these far-left slapfights is reading those individual, pointed interactions that slip you right into bizarro world and make you feel like you'd get along fine with the weirdo Black Israelite/African nationalist dudes in your shared hatred of white pinko shitlibs. It's like that Nation of Islam summit that George Rockwell took American Nazi Party members to where they applauded a Malcolm X speech.

Quote
On a recent episode of WTF With Marc Maron, former Daily Show writer Wyatt Cenac recalled a moment when host Jon Stewart exploded at him in front of the entire late night show’s staff. It all pertained to Stewart’s imitation of 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain; an impersonation that just went too far for Cenac. At the time prior to the 2012 presidential election, Cenac was the only black writer and found Stewart’s knock on Cain coming from “kind of an ignorant place.”

Fox News was already on Stewart’s case over the offensive impression. In response, Stewart was planning a segment entitled “everything I do is racist.” When Cenac heard this, he raised his objection over the whole bit in an email to the Daily Show staff.

“I was the one black writer there. It was this thing where it’s like, when you’re the one — whether you want to or not — you’re speaking for everybody. I felt like I had to speak for all the minorities, because there’s nobody speaking for them,” Cenac told Maron.

When Cenac emphasized his reservations again during a writers meeting, Stewart blew his lid:

“He got incredibly defensive. I remember he was like, ‘What are you trying to say? There’s a tone in your voice.’ I was like, ‘There’s no tone. It bothered me.’ … And then he got upset. He stood up and he was just like, ‘Fuck off. I’m done with you.’ And he just started screaming that to me, and he screamed it a few times. … ‘Fuck off! I’m done with you.’ And he stormed out. I didn’t know if I had been fired,” remembered Cenac.

Following the incident, Cenac had an emotional breakdown.

Added Cenac, “I represent my people, and I try to represent them the best that I can. I gotta be honest if something seems questionable, because if not, then I don’t want to be in a position where I am being untrue not just to myself but to my culture, because that’s exploitative.”

Racism is bad!!!   (unless we are making fun of a republican black guy)

Pretty typical of libtards though.   How many "militant feminists" out there would call Sarah Palin "a fucking CUNT!!" over and over again without even thinking twice about it?

Doublethink is a pretty important part of the liberal thought process.

Quote
Jose Antonio Vargas, the illegal immigrant documentary filmmaker behind the controversial new TV show, White People, lives in a $1.2 million apartment, GotNews.com has learned.

Vargas, who is an illegal alien from the Philippines with ties to the Obama White House, lives at 460 Natoma St. Apartment 16, San Francisco, CA.

The two bedroom 1,370 square foot is in an exceptionally white part of San Francisco if demographic profiles are to be believed.

South of Market is pricing out the very poor people who are most hurt by the income inequality that naturally results from Vargas’s liberalism.

I guess Vargas is doing the job Americans won’t do… host a television show on a popular network.

He was also arrested on the Mexican boarder, then released by his contacts in the government, the Obama administration, has used him to push their immigration plan. So, its fun to use all of this in debates against his supports. Been here since he was 13, now 31, and still not even trying to citizenship.

On, Sanders

I watched the whole documentary and they fucked up the entire portion of the scholarships discussion in one big way.

Sure white people get more scholarships (statistically they should because more people in the country are white than any other demographic), that isn't what people are angry or frustrated about. They are angry that the requirements are much more difficult to get scholarships if you're white.

At no point did they mention that black and many minority scholarships and school acceptance in general require lower scores and lower GPAs than white ones.
(http://i.imgur.com/zgc4zEN.jpg)
The fact that the black friend also didn't get a scholarship is hilarious because his grades & scores had to have sucked big time.


They also didn't quantify the types of scholarships people receive. I got 3 scholarships to go to school that paid for only tuition for about 2-3 semesters. My girlfriend at the time got a full ride (room, board and books) from one scholarship. So between us white kids we had 4 scholarships but only 1 was really worth something. Qualifying for a $100 or $500 scholarship from your church helps but it isn't the same as getting multiple years and room and board and books paid for.

Copypaste from 888 vidya thread:

She realized how lame SJWs are when she was betrayed by her very own. A dude from Huffington Post outright insulted her in one of their streams. Even on Tumblr, the site where the consensus on the Charlie Hebdo massacre was that "well, they WERE racist bigots... :)", most Suey Park posts after the Colbert feature were negative towards her. If you looked at the notes, there were "agender" girls with "they/them pronouns" reblogging "Suey Park is hysterical, watch her get owned by Based Colbert xD" posts. The way Colbert sucked up to Anita, who is only a tiny bit below her in terms of radicalism, only made things worse.

The truth is that Suey's views, despite her wording being more naked and less diplomatic than the norm (outright saying that white men are the enemy or that free speech is nonsense), were not REALLY going against what should be logically considered "acceptable" within that clique. ESPECIALLY given that she's a "PoC". Her biggest mistake in the eyes of her ex-allies was attacking a guy that liberals worship as a saint of social justice. It's not that she was hateful, but that she was hateful towards the wrong straight white man.

The prophecy in the thread title continues to be realized....

https://www.reddit.com/r/GamerGhazi/comments/3h9fan/gamerghazi_casual_bigotry_and_you/

"Gamerghazi" is the anti-gamergate SJW faggot subreddit.  Apparently, some of the SJW faggots there have been implying that the black lives matter protesters shouldn't have interrupted Bernie Sanders, who they love (more than niggers, but you can't say that.)  "This is NOT OK".   Oh, and no discussion allowed, this is locked.  Hahahaha.   It's worth a read just for the cringe, so sorry no highlighting.

Quote
The following was written by People of Color on Ghazi's mod team, and the rest of the mods stand with them.

Previous posts on the subject: A Very Important Gamer Ghazette: Bernie Sanders and #BlackLivesMatter[1] , Stop posting about Bernie and BLM.[2]
We need to talk.
Well, actually, no. We don’t need to talk. You need to listen. We gave you an avenue to talk, and that ended up being not productive, so in this case we’re telling you all to be quiet and listen.
It’s sort of ridiculous, having to post yet another mod notice about casual bigotry on this subreddit in the span of about a week. It’s like we’re constantly trying to hit the head of a nail, and yet constantly missing. Yet we can’t let this go, because this is what our subreddit is meant to do: call out people for casual bigotry and discuss how to do better.
So far, we’ve been calling out the casual bigotry… but instead of asking how we can do better, we’re digging trenches and otherwise refusing to budge. Instead of listening when being called out, we’re getting users commenting on how they did not like being called racist, repeating the same actions and behaviours that were being called out in previous posts, and otherwise stubbornly assert that BLM was inherently in the wrong and that Sanders was being silenced.
It is a never-ending series of frustrations. After all, GamerGhazi is a progressive community, and we’re supposed to be better than this. In the past several days, however, GamerGhazi has become less of a safe place for people of color, and has instead become more akin to a typical default subreddit, complete with casual and unconscious racism.
We can see the comments now. “But I’m not racist! My comments had nothing to do with racism!” We know you don’t think you’re being racist. We just spent an entire moderator announcement arguing and fighting over that point, so we don’t really need to hear it yet again. Right now, it really doesn’t matter whether you think your comments were subtly racist or whether you believe that you personally do not espouse racism. Your comments were racist, and you were unconsciously being racist. Arguing that this doesn’t apply to you will not help, and we do not want to hear it.
Whether you intended to be racist or not, the issue is that GamerGhazi is racist.
Has the subreddit always been racist? Has the subreddit gradually become more racist over time, as the community grows larger? Is this something we’ve only begun to notice now? We don’t know, and in truth, we don’t really care to know. The question of whether this is a recent development or whether it has always been this way does not matter. What matters is that, at this current moment, this subreddit is racist.
Oh, it’s not overt racism laden with racial slurs and “anti-racist is codeword for anti-white”. You’re pretty good at saying that’s not okay, and call people out on that kind of behavior. Instead, it’s the little things, the unsaid implications, and the outright prioritizing of a white man’s voice over black people’s voices. It’s the indignity expressed on behalf of all white allies everywhere because one white ally got interrupted on a stage in Seattle. It’s the comments complaining that BLM should have interrupted Republicans, instead of Democrats. It’s the assertion that BLM should have interrupted a different rally, and not this particular one that happens to be related to your pet issues. It’s the idea that putting pressure on allies is bad even though it has been a staple of progressive politics for years now. It’s the moderation reports accusing moderators of being too emotional, too political, too toxic, too personal, and too angry when the moderators are calling out casual racism in the comments. It’s all of these and yet more, contributing to a racial hierarchy that favors white voices over the voices of people of color, and which seeks to silent the latter.
GamerGhazi, whether intended to be or not, is racist. And that needs to change.
Calling out your fellow allies in the fight for social justice is hard, because it’s generally assumed that we already know this type of thing. Additionally, certain voices are valued more than others, consciously or not. Many of us moderators are people of color, and it’s even harder to speak as a marginalized voice, because we have all been raised and socialized to act like our oppressors, to speak like our oppressors, and to not openly challenge our oppressors, lest we be seen as uppity, divisive, “rocking the boat”, and ungrateful. In the case of social justice, many people value the voice of the privileged ally over the voice of the oppressed person. From comments such as “I support feminism, but not all men do x” to “I think generalizing cis people is unhelpful”, such statements help to perpetuate injustice and silencing.
The unsaid implication is “I support the concept of BlackLivesMatter, but I wish the black activists who interrupted Sanders were not so rude about it” and “I am not racist, but I think it is problematic that the black people decide to call out the white person speaking on their behalf.”
This is casual racism. And this is not okay.
This is not a discussion for you to assert that you are not racist and that you are personally offended. As it has already been said, we do not care. If you want to assert that you are personally offended by this post and that this does not apply to you, you are part of the problem. And we are not accepting this anymore.

The following was written by People of Color on Ghazi's mod team, and the rest of the mods stand with them.

Previous posts on the subject: A Very Important Gamer Ghazette: Bernie Sanders and #BlackLivesMatter[1] , Stop posting about Bernie and BLM.[2]
We need to talk.
Well, actually, no. We don’t need to talk. You need to listen. We gave you an avenue to talk, and that ended up being not productive, so in this case we’re telling you all to be quiet and listen.
It’s sort of ridiculous, having to post yet another mod notice about casual bigotry on this subreddit in the span of about a week. It’s like we’re constantly trying to hit the head of a nail, and yet constantly missing. Yet we can’t let this go, because this is what our subreddit is meant to do: call out people for casual bigotry and discuss how to do better.
So far, we’ve been calling out the casual bigotry… but instead of asking how we can do better, we’re digging trenches and otherwise refusing to budge. Instead of listening when being called out, we’re getting users commenting on how they did not like being called racist, repeating the same actions and behaviours that were being called out in previous posts, and otherwise stubbornly assert that BLM was inherently in the wrong and that Sanders was being silenced.
It is a never-ending series of frustrations. After all, GamerGhazi is a progressive community, and we’re supposed to be better than this. In the past several days, however, GamerGhazi has become less of a safe place for people of color, and has instead become more akin to a typical default subreddit, complete with casual and unconscious racism.
We can see the comments now. “But I’m not racist! My comments had nothing to do with racism!” We know you don’t think you’re being racist. We just spent an entire moderator announcement arguing and fighting over that point, so we don’t really need to hear it yet again. Right now, it really doesn’t matter whether you think your comments were subtly racist or whether you believe that you personally do not espouse racism. Your comments were racist, and you were unconsciously being racist. Arguing that this doesn’t apply to you will not help, and we do not want to hear it.
Whether you intended to be racist or not, the issue is that GamerGhazi is racist.

As a liberal who goes here time to time to whine and someone who likes Sanders, the commentary defending Black Lives Matter protesters has been absolute peak SJW bullshit. That Ghazi post is hilarious. Keep in mind this started when one of Netroots Nation's directors basically sabotaged the two candidates who actually showed up to their forum by essentially letting Sanders and Also Running For President Martin O'Malley get their event disrupted. Hillary Clinton, who smartly avoided this shitshow, came out of this looking good and a canned response to BLM on Facebook was enough to surrogates to pick up on a "BERNIE SANDERS DOESNT CARE ABOUT BLACK LIVES" narrative. This included the guy who fucking runs Daily Kos, and most of that site has been in left infighting mode for weeks now.


I've been saying it since late 2014 but this whole year has me convinced: we've reached the apex of SJW politics already, and while they still have a lot of institutional power, this shit is starting to break down.

Thank god

edit: I also directly credit the new PC with Trump's current standing in the polls and think whoever gets the GOP nomination will keep up a somewhat similar attitude

I admit, Trump has done way better than I thought (I laughed him off completely when I heard he was jumping in). And I appreciate his appeal. And fuck, I've liked him a few times, especially when he was talking about how politicians are bought off to their faces.

But I just can't believe someone currently disliked by more than half the country (this is what favorability tells us) is going to wind up the nominee. He'll either flame out at some point or the GOP establishment will figure out how to

shit maybe you're right

I don't think we'll have reached the apex until SJWs start taking more... let's say, "direct" action to enforce their views on the general population. At that point it will be interesting to see whether society collectively decides whether to keep their heads down or to respond in kind.

The UVA rape case was the beginning of the end.  SJW shit still carries on but it's been quieter overall than in 2014.  Outrage fatigue is setting in because so many of the outrages are outright fabricated and/or overstay their welcome (like #niglivesmatter).

"build a wall" isn't very sensible but it's a lot better than "do nothing about immigration because it helps the democrats votes"

Trump is the only republican candidate that I'm convinced would actually fucking do something.  Cruz looks to me like another faggot that will just chill in office and do nothing once he's in.  Rand Paul I probably politically agree with more than any of them but I cannot vote for him because he has no presence.  What we need right now is a guy who's going to actually stand up to foreign leaders.  WE've had 8 years of a beta academic nigger who's just a successful goon, really.  If he's not campaigning he has no forcefulness at all and he throws temper tantrums when people disagree with him.  This is hurting us on the foreign stage more than anything.

Of course, the SJWs will tell you it's because we're not all trannies.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/28/science/many-social-science-findings-not-as-strong-as-claimed-study-says.html?_r=2

So much social justice bullshit is tied up in various social science studies.  The IFLS/SWPLs smugly point to various pro-left research papers and insist that trannies really are just women born in men's bodies and that rape is everywhere.  From the NYT surprisingly, we're finding out that a lot of social science studies just aren't holding up:

Quote
The report appears at a time when the number of retractions of published papers is rising sharply in a wide variety of disciplines. Scientists have pointed to a hypercompetitive culture across science that favors novel, sexy results and provides little incentive for researchers to replicate the findings of others, or for journals to publish studies that fail to find a splashy result.

So basically researchers are incentivized to publish bullshit results that follow along with the narrative and is shocking and loud enough to get published.  Since this is social science, we can obviously conclude that a number of left/far left assertions that rely on these papers are now bullshit and in question.  We knew this but it's interesting that the central point of poz is reporting on this.  Maybe women really want to prioritize child rearing over having a career that will peter out at lower management.  Maybe adopted children under gays experiences a lower quality of life than their equivalent straight parents.  Maybe if you put a dress on a boy and make him like the color pink that you can't mold his sexuality?  Maybe not everything is nuture and there is some nature, no matter how much you don't like it?

Social justice has definitely taken a hit in 2015 compared to 2014 and maybe 2013.  The biggest thing going right now is #niglivesmatter and they are rapidly wearing out their welcomes.  By 2017, I hope these losers are back to being ignored and ridiculed.

Well. This is.... You know what? I'm at a loss for words. Anita may have just fucked up with the force of a tactical nuclear device, and there's really nothing to do but quote the articles. To surmise it simply: Anita just accused Eron of Domestic Abuse, citing Quinn's 209 order. In doing so, she may have just made herself criminally liable. She did so after Chelsea Van Valkenburg wrote this gem, leaked from her upcoming book, State of Play:

http://pastebin.ru/mKWTlczR


I will take this moment to remind you that Valkenburg attempted to vacate her own retraining order, since she was potentially on the line for perjury, meaning she's not only openly lying here, but she's just fucking handing evidence over to Eron's lawyers at this point.

Now for where Team Anita comes in:

https://archive.is/UV16b#selection-2373.0-2373.4

I do like that Anita just quietly admitted that Gamergate was kicking her ass, but seriously, she really wants to throw her hat into the ring to support Quinn? After Quinn already vacated her restraining order because it was clearly unconstitutional?

I mean, hey, it's not like we have evidence of her having violent and destructive behavior, amusing herself by trying to start shit and physically fuck people up, fucking up a charity stream for her own ego, perjuring herself, bragging about fucking up that charity event, claiming she's murdered someone and got away with it during a nude photo shoot, calling anything that paints her narrative as anything other than bullshit "harassment" (to the point where several prominent youtubers pointed out that merely saying her name constituted harassment according to her), spreading around peoples' personal information for the purposes of fostering their harassment, swatting someone, and running what is thought by many to be a fradulent support network that is solely used to continue the doxxing and harassment of others.

Liberal arts colleges aren't that bad, at least here in the flyovers. No different than big state schools, honestly, other than being smaller and making you take some diversified courses. Leftists are still present, but there's also plenty of people who either actively disagree, or at the very least don't care. At least here in the flyovers. Not sparing any of the ones on the coast.

On the other hand these chicks got to live a life they never would have if not for this GG shit. 

Gamergate can make them so terrified that they can't sleep at night, but posing on the red carpet and things of the sort with literally hundreds of people around who could be an evil Gamergater doesn't make them blink an eye. 

Ever notice they rarely cancel appearances with groups that have a bigger sphere of influence than just vidya games or lol women in tech?

This is the inverse of the "progressive who allies with Muslims because oppression" phenomenon.

A lot of Muslims have grown up hating the Republicans and conservatives, they buy into the Glenn Greenwald/Reza Aslan/SJW bullshit to the extent that it helps insulate their religion from criticism and meanie atheists....but, at the end of the day, they're still Muslims. So there's now this weird hybrid of cultural identifiers like "Socialist" and "Feminist" and strategic use of social justice politics, but still actually just being a conservative Muslim the second you run into a conflict.

I'm not sure how the Jews feel about this.

“is a sadbrains an SJW?"

"More or less."

“More less than more. There are many sorts of social justice warriors, just as there are many sorts of birds. A sandpiper and a sea eagle both have wings, but they are not the same. The singers love to sing of warriors forced to go online to fight some wicked shitlord, but most SJWs are more like this ravening Seraph84 than they are a warrior of social justice. They are evil men, driven by greed, soured by malice, despising the gods and caring only for themselves.

Sadbrains are more deserving of our pity, though they may be just as dangerous. Almost all are common-born, simple folk who had never been more than a mile from the house where they were born until the day some slacktivist came round to take them off to fight for social justice. Poorly shod and poorly clad, they march away beneath the hashtags, ofttimes with no better arguments than canned rhetoric or an ad hominem, or a strawman they made themselves by posting stdh.txt. Bloggers post with Bloggers, Tumbrinas with Twitterers, Facebook friends with Facebook friends. They've heard the songs and stories, so they go off with eager hearts, dreaming of the wonders they will see, of the wealth and glory they will win. War seems a fine adventure, the greatest most of them will ever know.

Then they get a taste of battle.

For some, that one taste is enough to break them. Others go on for years, until they lose count of all the keyboard battles they have fought in, but even an SJW who has survived a hundred fights can break in their hundred-and-first. Twitterers watch their followers unfollow, Celebrities lose their fans, posters see their friends trying to hold their spaghetti in after they've been publicly shamed. They see the SJW who led them there cut down, and some other SJW shouts that they are hers now. They take a wound, and when that's still half-healed they take another. There are never enough cheetos to eat, their asses start to hurt from sitting, their clothes are unwashed and stinking, and half of them are shitting in their breeches from being banned.

If they want new followers or a shares or maybe more e-cred, they need to shame other users, and before long they are shaming acquaintances too, the normies whose feeds they're posting on, posters very like posters they used to be. They shitpost on their feed and call them racists, and from there it's just a short step to calling their bosses too. And one day they look around and realize all their friends and kin are gone, that they are fighting beside strangers in a movement that they hardly recognize. They don't know where they are or how to get back home and the cause they're fighting for does not know their names, yet here she comes, shouting for them to form up, to make a line with their accounts and memes and sharpened rhetoric, to stand their ground. And the knights come down on them, faceless men clad all in proxies, and the iron thunder of their charge seems to fill the world...

And the goon breaks.

He turns and runs, or crawls off afterward over the corpses of the slain, or steals away in the black of night, and he finds someplace to hide. All thought of home is gone by then, and likes and follows and causes mean less to him than a freezer burned hot-pocket that will let him post another day, or a liter of Mountain Dew that might drown his fear for a few hours. The sadbrains lives from day to day, from post to post, more goon than man. In times like these, the poster must beware of sadbrains, and fear them...but he should pity them as well”

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/28/science/many-social-science-findings-not-as-strong-as-claimed-study-says.html?_r=2

So much social justice bullshit is tied up in various social science studies.  The IFLS/SWPLs smugly point to various pro-left research papers and insist that trannies really are just women born in men's bodies and that rape is everywhere.  From the NYT surprisingly, we're finding out that a lot of social science studies just aren't holding up:

Quote
The report appears at a time when the number of retractions of published papers is rising sharply in a wide variety of disciplines. Scientists have pointed to a hypercompetitive culture across science that favors novel, sexy results and provides little incentive for researchers to replicate the findings of others, or for journals to publish studies that fail to find a splashy result.

So basically researchers are incentivized to publish bullshit results that follow along with the narrative and is shocking and loud enough to get published.  Since this is social science, we can obviously conclude that a number of left/far left assertions that rely on these papers are now bullshit and in question.  We knew this but it's interesting that the central point of poz is reporting on this.  Maybe women really want to prioritize child rearing over having a career that will peter out at lower management.  Maybe adopted children under gays experiences a lower quality of life than their equivalent straight parents.  Maybe if you put a dress on a boy and make him like the color pink that you can't mold his sexuality?  Maybe not everything is nuture and there is some nature, no matter how much you don't like it?

Social justice has definitely taken a hit in 2015 compared to 2014 and maybe 2013.  The biggest thing going right now is #niglivesmatter and they are rapidly wearing out their welcomes.  By 2017, I hope these losers are back to being ignored and ridiculed.

Haven't looked at this thread in a while but the main problem with social science is that if you publish a study with null findings (say you are trying to test the hypothesis that whites are more likely to be violent than blacks net of x y and z and you find no significant differences) the study will be ripped to shreds and not published. There are an overwhelming number of "false positive" studies in just about every social science. Also replication research is unheard of because it's not "novel" and not considered an "original contribution." The best studies to look at are true meta-analyses because they tend to cut through all the bullshit and show that the science is a fraud, despite even robust methods being at most social scientists' disposals these days...then you have whole factions within these disciplines that simply say "Fuck science, let me just talk to people and frame everything as 'narrative.'"

There are exceptions. Criminologists tend to be more honest than other sociologists, for instance, but they still have many of the same problems. No surprise that other social scientists often consider criminologists overly conservative or even fascist.

This, 100 times.  We should have journals review articles for publication before getting to the findings.  If the research was set up properly, a null result should still be interesting and should still be reported.  Reviewers should look at the setup and vote whether they believe the setup was done correctly.  If accepted, at that point results should be attached to the paper and it should be published.

They're not even really trying anymore.

Vapes bill themselves as a safer way to wean yourself off of smoking and make nicotine a safer drug. But niche vape marketing that's rich with sexist tropes is creating a toxic taboo around the culture and driving away a mainstream consumer base, especially women.

...

The tropes of vaping culture drip of toxic masculinity. In fact, women are more likely to try vaping than men, and more likely to want to. Mic spoke to several vape shop employees who said women and men are equally represented in the real-life vaping community. But looking at vaping's most visible ambassadors, you'd never know it.

The hypermasculine image that vape marketers are selling is a self-fulfilling prophecy that could lock vaping out of the mainstream if the community can't overcome the stigma.

...

"The views of the community from the outside are more negative than ever," vaping reporter and blogger Shawn Avery said. Avery writes for the brand blog of Drip Club, an online retailer and brand curator that could be called the Gilt or Thrillist of vaping. He's one of the few writers combing the Internet — as well as L.A., the modern Mecca for vaping companies and communities — for insights into the vaping community, writing everything from tongue-in-cheek listicles about vaper stereotypes to researched stories about nicotine addiction and transparently flawed anti-vaping research papers.

"The non-vaping public sees vaping the same way they see fedoras," Avery said. "They associate it with this awful MRA [men's rights activist], neckbeard culture."

A better model for the current state of vaping culture might be the niche tattoo culture, urban skating communities or motorcycle detailing shops — where logos slathered in gothic letter-print cover shop walls, where Hot Topic-style black cargo shorts live on, where men are engineers and trailblazers and women are bombshells, pin-ups and fighting fuck toys.

One look at footage from this year's Electronic Cigarette Convention in Los Angeles — notable presenters included Jason Mews of the of the Jay and Silent Bob films — shows a subculture dripping with the trappings of toxic masculinity. It's too easy to see how many women would be driven away.

This is actually real, it's not a parody.

Feminists these days can't stand it if something isn't catered specifically towards them.  If anything is catered towards men, they get triggered and pissy about it because it means it's something that they can't control.

I buy those $10 hookah pens for concerts and music festivals. When I realized I bought about $100 worth of them, over the past year and a half, I decided to stop by the vapor shop and see what they have.

Listened to the clerk sperg on for about 15 minutes about the box, batteries, coil, heating module, etc. Big NOPE.

Not about to spend $150 on a pile of parts and some juice, just so I can spend hours trying to figure it all out and then have venue security suspect there's THC oil inside.

I'd do $120 for the whole joint, if it didn't seem so goddamn annoying to operate.

You know you can buy them for about a third of that price if you don't buy from a vaping sperg and if you ever decide you want to broadcast "i'm a faggot" to the world.

If white men are the power holders you would think it would make sense not to alienate them from the movement. Good thing there are plenty of limp wristed liberal pussies who will still go along with it.

The Atlantic has become a pretty pozzed, generally left leaning rag, but they published an amazingly "Oh shit, maybe we brought this on ourselves and it's too late" article about social justice, political correctness, and the rising tide of microaggressions and trigger warnings and how it's ruining Gen Y and Z:

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2015/09/the-coddling-of-the-american-mind/399356/

It's long but worth the read. It has all the observations about and arguments against this stuff I've been seeing on here and TNE, going back years. They collect anecdotes about literally every single example of this shit from the news that I've seen posted on here in the past 2 years.

Quote
Something strange is happening at America’s colleges and universities. A movement is arising, undirected and driven largely by students, to scrub campuses clean of words, ideas, and subjects that might cause discomfort or give offense. Last December, Jeannie Suk wrote in an online article for The New Yorker about law students asking her fellow professors at Harvard not to teach rape law—or, in one case, even use the word violate (as in “that violates the law”) lest it cause students distress. In February, Laura Kipnis, a professor at Northwestern University, wrote an essay in The Chronicle of Higher Education describing a new campus politics of sexual paranoia—and was then subjected to a long investigation after students who were offended by the article and by a tweet she’d sent filed Title IX complaints against her. In June, a professor protecting himself with a pseudonym wrote an essay for Vox describing how gingerly he now has to teach. “I’m a Liberal Professor, and My Liberal Students Terrify Me,” the headline said. A number of popular comedians, including Chris Rock, have stopped performing on college campuses (see Caitlin Flanagan’s article in this month’s issue). Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Maher have publicly condemned the oversensitivity of college students, saying too many of them can’t take a joke.

Two terms have risen quickly from obscurity into common campus parlance. Microaggressions are small actions or word choices that seem on their face to have no malicious intent but that are thought of as a kind of violence nonetheless. For example, by some campus guidelines, it is a microaggression to ask an Asian American or Latino American “Where were you born?,” because this implies that he or she is not a real American. Trigger warnings are alerts that professors are expected to issue if something in a course might cause a strong emotional response. For example, some students have called for warnings that Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart describes racial violence and that F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby portrays misogyny and physical abuse, so that students who have been previously victimized by racism or domestic violence can choose to avoid these works, which they believe might “trigger” a recurrence of past trauma.

Quote
We have been studying this development for a while now, with rising alarm. (Greg Lukianoff is a constitutional lawyer and the president and CEO of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which defends free speech and academic freedom on campus, and has advocated for students and faculty involved in many of the incidents this article describes; Jonathan Haidt is a social psychologist who studies the American culture wars. The stories of how we each came to this subject can be read here.) The dangers that these trends pose to scholarship and to the quality of American universities are significant; we could write a whole essay detailing them. But in this essay we focus on a different question: What are the effects of this new protectiveness on the students themselves? Does it benefit the people it is supposed to help? What exactly are students learning when they spend four years or more in a community that polices unintentional slights, places warning labels on works of classic literature, and in many other ways conveys the sense that words can be forms of violence that require strict control by campus authorities, who are expected to act as both protectors and prosecutors?

Quote
How Did We Get Here?

It’s difficult to know exactly why vindictive protectiveness has burst forth so powerfully in the past few years. The phenomenon may be related to recent changes in the interpretation of federal antidiscrimination statutes (about which more later). But the answer probably involves generational shifts as well. Childhood itself has changed greatly during the past generation. Many Baby Boomers and Gen Xers can remember riding their bicycles around their hometowns, unchaperoned by adults, by the time they were 8 or 9 years old. In the hours after school, kids were expected to occupy themselves, getting into minor scrapes and learning from their experiences. But “free range” childhood became less common in the 1980s. The surge in crime from the ’60s through the early ’90s made Baby Boomer parents more protective than their own parents had been. Stories of abducted children appeared more frequently in the news, and in 1984, images of them began showing up on milk cartons. In response, many parents pulled in the reins and worked harder to keep their children safe.

The flight to safety also happened at school. Dangerous play structures were removed from playgrounds; peanut butter was banned from student lunches. After the 1999 Columbine massacre in Colorado, many schools cracked down on bullying, implementing “zero tolerance” policies. In a variety of ways, children born after 1980—the Millennials—got a consistent message from adults: life is dangerous, but adults will do everything in their power to protect you from harm, not just from strangers but from one another as well.

Quote
These first true “social-media natives” may be different from members of previous generations in how they go about sharing their moral judgments and supporting one another in moral campaigns and conflicts. We find much to like about these trends; young people today are engaged with one another, with news stories, and with prosocial endeavors to a greater degree than when the dominant technology was television. But social media has also fundamentally shifted the balance of power in relationships between students and faculty; the latter increasingly fear what students might do to their reputations and careers by stirring up online mobs against them.

We do not mean to imply simple causation, but rates of mental illness in young adults have been rising, both on campus and off, in recent decades.

Quote
Because there is a broad ban in academic circles on “blaming the victim,” it is generally considered unacceptable to question the reasonableness (let alone the sincerity) of someone’s emotional state, particularly if those emotions are linked to one’s group identity. The thin argument “I’m offended” becomes an unbeatable trump card. This leads to what Jonathan Rauch, a contributing editor at this magazine, calls the “offendedness sweepstakes,” in which opposing parties use claims of offense as cudgels. In the process, the bar for what we consider unacceptable speech is lowered further and further.

Quote
But in 2013, the Departments of Justice and Education greatly broadened the definition of sexual harassment to include verbal conduct that is simply “unwelcome.” Out of fear of federal investigations, universities are now applying that standard—defining unwelcome speech as harassment—not just to sex, but to race, religion, and veteran status as well. Everyone is supposed to rely upon his or her own subjective feelings to decide whether a comment by a professor or a fellow student is unwelcome, and therefore grounds for a harassment claim. Emotional reasoning is now accepted as evidence.

Quote
However, there is a deeper problem with trigger warnings. According to the most-basic tenets of psychology, the very idea of helping people with anxiety disorders avoid the things they fear is misguided. A person who is trapped in an elevator during a power outage may panic and think she is going to die. That frightening experience can change neural connections in her amygdala, leading to an elevator phobia. If you want this woman to retain her fear for life, you should help her avoid elevators.

Quote
Surely people make subtle or thinly veiled racist or sexist remarks on college campuses, and it is right for students to raise questions and initiate discussions about such cases. But the increased focus on microaggressions coupled with the endorsement of emotional reasoning is a formula for a constant state of outrage, even toward well-meaning speakers trying to engage in genuine discussion.

What are we doing to our students if we encourage them to develop extra-thin skin in the years just before they leave the cocoon of adult protection and enter the workforce? Would they not be better prepared to flourish if we taught them to question their own emotional reactions, and to give people the benefit of the doubt?

The comments are full of support from the article, but of course a few brave Millenials wade into there to defend the sancticty of their generation and point out how much more awesome they are than any generation previously:

Quote
What unhealthy thinking is that? That millenials are among the most educated as well as the most self-taught generation? TOXIC!

Quote
That's nice, what you've *done*, but your attitudes remain some of the most close minded of any generation especially compared to millennials. We're the ones who have fought for gay rights, trans rights, lead some of the biggest second wave Black Civil Rights' protests, and changed the way people even participate in activism. Thank you for the foundation you set, sure, but we're the ones keeping it up while the few of y'all who understand the Internet sit online to insult the generation YOU raised.

I believe a lot of it has to do with the fact that more and more of The Atlantic readership, as well as writers, editors, etc. are finding themselves on the wrong side of the SJW crusading.  These days if you're not a tranny or a black woman, someone will be calling you out for being problematic.  The Atlantic was generally down with shutting people up if they were white and born with a penis but white vagina havers are now coming in the crosshairs and that's going too far!

One of my favorite examples of this was our Brooklyn Bruiser doxx thread. This fucking gigantic loser was stomping around SA, being offended by someone calling a TV show primarily featuring black characters a "black series", and somehow finding misogyny under every nook and cranny and being offended by everything...


...while elsewhere he was making lists of famous women he wants to fuck in order of how bad he wants to fuck them (lists shockingly devoid of diversity!) while commissioning other dudes to write rape fiction featuring underage fictional characters played by actual underage actresses. THAT somehow wasn't offensive or triggering to him.

When we busted him on all this, his defense was "my gramma died and i was in a bad place for a while".

None of these people are actually triggered or offended, and in their personal lives a 'trigger warning' online or wherever has never deterred them. We've just incentivized victimhood so much, and human beings chase incentives. Hell, trees will bend and stretch to catch sunlight, TREES respond to fucking incentives. You don't need a mile of 888 to discuss or solve the problem. Stop incentivizing victimhood, go back to incentivizing personal strength and grit and hard work and rugged determination, and *poof*, you've got a self-correcting problem!

ESPN/Disney sees the spigot of money from cable rebroadcast fees quickly drying up. 2Q of this year saw the biggest amount of cord cutting ever, and its like a snowball rolling down hill from here. Major media companies have no choice but to cut the ancillary bullshit they bloated up on over the last decade, with ESPN likely being the worst offender of this. I don't think I've watched "sports shows" in years that wasn't actually a live broadcast of a game. "Peak cable sports" has already passed us. And the massive contracts ESPN signed with the major sports leagues will be their undoing.

Houston shoots down a LGBT ordinance by a wide margin: 61 to 39

Teh gays are shrieking about how a campaign that focused on men going into women's restrooms is why people shot it down.  While that's a good point but the truth is that Houston is full of blacks, hispanics, and oilmen.  Blacks and hispanics are not down with gay people and they sure as shit aren't down with dudes in dresses who demand to go into women's restrooms because of muh feels.  The media who has reported on this completely ignore this angle but the demographic breakdowns of the vote will eventually surface and we'll see that blacks for sure voted overwhelmingly against it.

You will never get white liberals to admit that blacks still aren't down with the gays, even though Obama is now in favor of gay marriage (maybe...he's spent most of his political career against gay marriage) so that means all blacks should be on board right?

ESPN killed Grantland today, after laying off 300 employees a few days ago.  Grantland was riddled with poz, which seems odd considering it's supposed to be a website about sports.  I don't mean poz articles about sports (although there was plenty of that) but lots of Tumblriffic rants and raves about the patriarchy, capitalism, etc.  Why the fuck would someone who'd want to read about sports want to hear the umpteenth article about white privilege?  Who the fuck knows.

ESPN/Disney sees the spigot of money from cable rebroadcast fees quickly drying up. 2Q of this year saw the biggest amount of cord cutting ever, and its like a snowball rolling down hill from here. Major media companies have no choice but to cut the ancillary bullshit they bloated up on over the last decade, with ESPN likely being the worst offender of this. I don't think I've watched "sports shows" in years that wasn't actually a live broadcast of a game. "Peak cable sports" has already passed us. And the massive contracts ESPN signed with the major sports leagues will be their undoing.

I guess it's no coincidence that Comcast decides NOW to implement their even stricter bandwidth limits and "unlimited internet data" packages.

Nothing brings a smile to my face more than seeing a SJW being confronted with the fact that Tyrone and Pedro ain't down with that gay shit.

Crossposting from Trooooons:

The leftist :ultlibrage: outrage :ultlibrage: over this has been AMAZING. I think it'll sustain me all the way until early 2016. They spent so much fucking money and brought in all kinds of celebrities and shit to lecture H-town and it didn't work because we still don't like queers. They were forced to put it up to a vote, and now they're pitching a bitch fit that the citizens have said no.

Semi-regular reminder that Gawker is trash and its fans are even worse.

Short version: Mom and dad go out on Halloween to get costume stuff for the kids, get killed in a wreck.  Cop goes to their house and finds their four kids there by themselves.  Grandma can't get there until the next morning, so cop decides not to tell them about their parents until grandma is there, and he also doesn't want to ruin the holiday by dumping something on them that'll change their lives forever.  Kids go to the police station, are treated to burgers and fries and candy and other treats, and don't find out what happened until the next day.

The original title was "This Cop Lied to a Bunch of Orphans", and ofc the comments section is wall-to-wall variations on how the officer is LITERALLY HITLER for deceiving them.  :facepalm:

They're trying to put up a front saying that Houston is heavily segregated. Basically trying to say you can walk outside and not deal with one of every race everyday.
