Have you noticed that leftists refuse to debate?

Since the 1970's, education has been dumbed down so successfully by cultural Marxists throughout our K-12 schools, colleges and universities that there virtually is no debate in society.  For example, celebrities like to enter the political arena and showcase their opinions with unsubstantiated charges against their political opponents, safe from being challenged by the mainstream press.   If there is some sort of challenge, leftists shrink away, relying on the predictable charges of racist, sexist, xenophobic, etc.. (Again with no challenge from media...just taken for granted).  Kudos to Laura Ingraham for boldly challenging LBJ to a debate.   We need schools promoting critical thinking rather than emotion based political comformity.

"Our centuries’ old democracy depends on open discussion and debate. A free exchange of ideas often results in proposals being aired, countered, adjusted and re-asserted with refinements and compromises added. We seemed to have abandoned that fundamental premise of civil discourse and resorted instead to verbally attacking one’s opponents.

To me, it seems that the desire to inject political correctness into social speech, has resulted in the opposition being slammed as racists, sexists, xenophobes, bullies, Nazis, and other dismissive and tar-brushing labels, instead of rationally addressing disagreement with the ideas expressed.

A cogent example can be found in the wave of attacks on, or boycotts of, proposed speakers at universities. This has occurred recently at UT, and from recent memory at NYU, Middlebury College, Rutgers, University of Chicago and University of California (Berkeley) where demonstrators have sought the exclusion of speakers whose ideas or political leanings were contrary to their own. Think about that. The original purpose of a university was to analyze and debate ideas as a part of the search for knowledge and truth.

Roger Scruton on political corruption in univerisities

transcription:   "Academy has been invaded by a new way, a new form of studying.  It used to be the case at universities, you were teaching a recognized subject within a recognized curriculum, and you were carrying out research or scholarship in the humanities which was open minded, guided by the pursuit of truth, and not dismayed particularly if it came to a surprising or unorthodox conclusion.  

One of the 1st things that happens when a totalitarian govt takes over is that the universities are cleaned up.  That is to say, people who are doing that sort of thing get thrown out.  This is what happened when the Nazis took over German universities and when the communists took over Russian universities.   And it was the case in Eastern Europe in my day, with the sole exception of Poland, which had universities which were the only universities where every professor was on the right. That was because the communists were everywhere.  But, on the whole, this is the first move the totalitarian makes to stop that kind of free minded, open scholarship pursuit of truth.

So, we have been lucky in inheriting universities of that kind, but is it the case that we still have them?
We have seen the growth of an extraordinary number of new subjects in the university, in which the pursuit of truth seems to be secondary to something else.  The other thing being the pursuit of some kind of political conformity.  If you take a subject like Women's Studies, I know this is a controversial issue, but perhaps this can be talked about freely in this room...you can't talk about it freely in America, on the whole.  Anyway, there is a subject, it is very difficult to imagine that you  would succeed in that subject if you didn't have either at the outset, or certainly in the conclusion, feminist opinions.  It is a subject constructed around an ideology.  It might be that this ideology is grounded in truth, who knows?  But to question it is something which is essentially made impossible by the curriculum and by the way of teaching it.  And I think you'll find that there are quite a lot of subjects like that growing in our universities, in which conformity to an orthodoxy takes precedence over intellectual method."  youtube

Who decides what hate speech is?

Hate speech is terrible.  There should be social pressure against such displays.   But when a university administrator decides hate speech should be illegal,
then the question is, who decides what constitutes hate speech?...A university administrator?...A committee of social justice warriors?
The problem is that the hate speech label is being used to silence political opinion.   On the net, I've noticed that merely a difference of opinion or criticism is labelled hate.
The left's hate speech complaint is a ploy to empower censors on campus, social media, and  in the work place to suppress those who do not conform to the globalist/Marxist "narrative".

Cordial, friendly, inclusive?

Dear Rep. Pelosi,  California is a high tax state with some of the worst schools in the nation and a  crumbling  infrastructure,
so just what do you mean by,  "The PEOPLE come first"?
Who Rep. Pelosi and the Democrats are talking about when they use slogans like, "people come first", is illegal immigrants, felons included.   There is no mention of the downward pressure on wages brought on by the uncontrolled flow of "illegals" into the USA.  This is no humanitarian concern, either.  You won't hear a peep from Rep. Pelosi about the human misery brought on by open borders.  Not a concern about repeat rapists, deadly infectious diseases, the insane criminals, the organized criminals and terrorism happening due to the open border.   No mention of the bodies found in the desert with the eyes pecked out by birds.   The Democrats ignore rape trees.   All this uproar about rape in media yet nothing about the rape trees.  The carnage of open borders is ignored by our MSM because our MSM supports the Dems.   The cold blooded reason for allowing illegals to immigrate to the U.S. is the Democrats know that they will vote Democrat.  If the Dems thought illegal aliens might vote Republican, the wall would have been built during the Obama Presidency, along with Rep. Pelosi proclaiming, "The PEOPLE come first".

Cultural Marxists suffering HPD (Historical Perspective Deficiency)

 After decades of cultural Marxism infesting America's  K-12 schools, students have been misled by well meaning teachers, who were themselves students taught by cultural Marxists.  Our mainstream news media is cultural Marxist.   There are Cultural Marxists in the highest echelons of big business, who own the mainstream media.   History and Cultural Marxism are at odds.   So, history, along with the arts and sports are deemphasized in the education of our youth.  Camille Paglia has a few words to say about what happens when schools don't teach history due to Cultural Marxism:
"It's wrong to say that society causes rape.  I'm saying that it is the breakdown of the social code;  It is a breakdown of socialization that leads to rape.  What rape is, is an interruption by primitivism;  of barbarism; of  'the natural'.   We have to stop this constantly professing:  'Society is nothing but power oppressing the passive individual' and so on.  This is so distorted.  I think this has led to young women unable to protect themselves against rape because they don't understand...and now even more they don't know how to read...to intuit other people's motivations.  They misjudge signals.  (...)
...the way people focus on America, it's like, 'it's a terrible place for women.'  What are they talking about?  Never before in history have women been more free than in America.    What kind of ignorance of the history of culture to imagine that somehow we're living in a repressive regime for women.   It's so absurd."  my transcription from YouTube  They have to blame somebody for their sadness.  Cultural Marxism is a way to avoid introspection, since everything is political, it can't be the individual's fault for being unhappy.  

Cultural Marxists...cringeworthy - "Comedian Steve Martin’s famous portrayal of King Tut on “Saturday Night Live” has suddenly come under fire by students at an ultra-liberal college in Oregon.  Students in a humanities class at Reed College blasted the inclusion of the ancient skit in their coursework, branding it a vile example of cultural appropriation — as they demanded that it be removed entirely."  One Reed student said, “That’s like somebody … making a song just littered with the n-word everywhere,” nypost.com   Borrowing from Don Rickles, "Here comes a SJW.  We're all going to get depressed now."

Michel Foucoult - "...who saw all his work as giving us l'histoire des vérités, a history of truths as
though truths have a history.  Something is either true or not true, but nevertheless, he wanted to
rearrange the whole curriculum in such a way that when studying the thoughts of writings of people
in the past, we're not really interested in the truth of what they say, but in the power that speaks to it.
As the only commodity in the world is power.  Who has dominion over whom?  And that way, of
course, you can turn any subject, however impartial it seems in the outset, into an instrument of
ideological conflict by saying, to date, 'English studies have been an exercise of male power over
female gender.  So I am going to turn it upside down and make it an exercise of female power over the
masculine domination.'  You can turn all the subjects of the university upside down, rearrange them
as part of the agenda of liberation and that way you think you're still doing a scholarship."

"And the interesting thing is, of course, that you can then call upon a massive fake scholarship and a fake philosophy to give you authority.
The growth of the fake scholarship industry which enables people to claim authority for nonsense.  And the purpose of that nonsense being that it makes conformity to orthodoxy the only thing that you have.
If the scholarship is nonsense, what else is there?  Only the conclusions.  Those conclusions turn out to be liberal axioms from which you actually begin."   Roger Scruton on youtube

Gov Brown saved by intervention in Parliment

Many think that the climate change movement is a wolf in sheep's clothing:   The Cultural Marxists expanding the scope and power of bureaucracies.   The working poor take it on the chin, paying the mark-up for energy with Cap 'n' Trade.  Maybe we should have a debate on the topic...but, when was there ever a debate?  The globalist/Marxist Democrats are out of practice debating, having abandoned debate in favor of smear and the heckler's veto.  This works in California, but in the EU Parliament, you still have to bring debating skills, which include thinking on your feet and presenting a convincing argument.  Unequal to the task, Brown went ugly American  as he answered tough questions in the EU Parliament with insults.  Way to represent, Jerry.    
<================= screen capture source
Bad trip for Jerry - Discouraging that Brown accuses Europeans of inadequate education, given the fact that California, one of your highest taxed states in the nation, has elementary schools that rank near the bottom of the 50 states, and that 75% of black California boys don't meet state reading standards.  One would think that a California governor had other more pressing duties than jetting off to the EU and acting a fool.   My guess is he's running for President, and considering his competition,  he's got a good chance... if he can surmount the toxic handicap, in leftist circles, of being white and male, which is at the bottom of the list of "tribes" that the Democrats "support".  He'll have to lean strongly to the left in hopes of quelling the fear 'n' loathing the other tribes have towards Brown's tribe

It may seem odd that a Democrat would answer critics with the phrase, "having crocodile tears for the poor", but the Democratic Party intends to stop climate change by raising the price of energy.   In the past, worried that the poor use too much energy, politicians have suggested raising taxes on energy to reduce energy consumption....which meets with political resistance.   Cap 'n' Trade sounds less like a tax, and those folks who just watch CNN or MSNBC for their news, they won't know that Democrats are intentionally raising their energy bill.

N. Korea - The die is cast

Nothing more serious than N. Korea having ICBMs with hydrogen bomb payloads.  Embargo N. Korea now.  The longer we wait, the more cities Kim Jung-un will be able to nuke.   Embargo, then N. Korea will start the war.   Western nations don't have the will to start a war.   Kim Jong-un is relying on that, and continues to grow stronger, threatening Japan, S. Korea, Australia, and the U.S. mainland.   It was China's policy to enable NK while it developed ICBMs & nukes, and they bear the blame.  This didn't have to happen.  Now we are on the verge of a nuclear war, and after every rocket or nuke test by NK, China declares that the U.S. is too provocative.   China remains NK's main trading partner.  Cut off trade with China.   Why should we trade with an enemy who raised their special junk yard dog (NK) to have a nuclear exchange with the U.S.?   If that happens, the attack will be evaluated as Chinese foreign policy.   If the U.S. loses cities, so will China, because the President of the United States will not settle for the destruction of the U.S.  Meanwhile, Kim Jung-un needs his nukes to stay in power, and doesn't want to end up like Gaddafi, and I'm reasonably certain that Supreme Leader has not a speck of concern for human life, except his own.

Update - "With last weekend’s surprise nuclear test, North Korea has reached final stage of its crash course to develop thermonuclear weapons that can reach and destroy U.S. cities. So why are we not on a crash course to protect our cities from North Korean nuclear missiles?  Answer: Because for more than three decades, Democrats have done everything in their power to prevent, obstruct or delay the deployment of ballistic missile defense."  source

With the N. Koreans having attained nukes and high trajectory ICBMs, the new status quo is Kim Jung-un's version of Mutual Assured Destruction.  It is a choice between 2 options:
[1]  Kim is allowed to be a nuclear thug, including threatening other nations with destruction, and selling ICBMs & nuclear bombs to rogue nations, or...[2] there is a nuclear exchange.
Our present strategy is inaction and that is option [1].  Little doubt that Kim is building more missiles and more bombs while we wait.  N.K. is thought to have enough fissile materials to build 10 nuclear
bombs, and it is also theorized that they have miniaturized those bombs to fit ICBMs, but, no matter what their size now, they can be loaded on a plain looking freighter registered with some other nation.
Onto freighters to either sell a bomb or 2 or 3 to Iran, or the freighter can be used to deliver the bomb to the coast of California where it would be detonated.  So, there is no choice other than a full embargo now.  President Trump should consider that any further tests of rockets or bombs to be an act of war.

There well could be a NK nuclear bomb on a cargo ship headed for Iran or Los Angeles right now and we wouldn't know it.

Cornell U. advises snowflakes to rat on peers. Seriously.

Thoughtcrime - "Students at Cornell University are encouraged to report peers who have “negative reactions” to a  proposed LGBT safe space project..."
“Negative reactions tend to be rare. If they do occur, report it to the Office of Workforce Diversity, Equity, and Life Quality via a Bias Reporting Team Member, such as the Coordinator of the LGBT Resource Center,” the flyer reads.  According to the flyer, the Safe Place project is intended to “to affirm LGBTQ identities and lives and promote an affirmative and supportive environment” where participants “use inclusive language, avoid stereotyping, and not assume everyone is heterosexual.”(...)  “Remember that people may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity. Try making pronouns an optional part of introductions or check-ins at meetings or in class,” source
Where are the psychiatrists to study what the universities are doing to our students?    These students seem to have deep emotional issues, poised to be offended, subject to anxiety attacks, and  intolerant towards those whose opinions don't conform.  They float that a difference of opinion causes them "harm", and the press never asks them exactly what is meant by "harm".   Administrators spend a bundle convincing students about their victimhood.  It's a con game where the administrators live like royalty, and the students go deep in debt.  From grade school,  children are taught to emotionaly and uncritically accept the ever morphing leftist dogma.
  • the Office of Workforce Diversity Equity, and Life Quality
  • a Bias Reporting Team Member
  • the Coordinator of the LGBT Resource Center
  • safe places to affirm LGBTQ identities, etc.
  • pronoun changing
This is not liberal education.  It's cultural Marxism and our schools have been pushing this since the 1970's.   America's press corps got their diplomas from these leftist schools,
so if you're looking for a reason why the press won't report a story straight, here it is.

Suppression of inquiry  - A British University has blocked an academic studying a reported surge in people regretting transgender surgery.  source   It's something the whole family can do together.  source    

Marxism has it's edgier side - Criminal professors make a good living in colleges.  source

 San Diego State University teaches racism -  "Students offered extra credit to determine their level of ‘white privilege’" source    Funny, because I didn't feel privileged when I was drafted.  I checked the box  ~caucasian~ on the forms during induction, but they put me in the infantry.   I didn't feel privileged as a construction worker.  That S.D. State U. professor has more privilege than I ever had. These people are bigots
deluding themselves that they have the moral high ground.

Shakespeare harms Yale students - "Yale ‘decolonizes’ English dept. after complaints studying white authors ‘actively harms’ students.  English majors no longer required to take class focused on Chaucer, Shakespeare"  source    How many complaints does it take for university administrators to decide that Shakespeare is harmful?   And what about this "active harms" thing?   They don't mean that students have been injured by Shakespeare requiring a trip to the ER.  They really mean Shakespeare makes some students sad.  They use the jargon of "actively harms", because if they used everyday language, their complaints would sound terribly silly.   The troubling basis of their complaint,  "...studying white authors...", is plain & simple racism, which must be condemned.  
Meanwhile across the pondSpiked editor's debate shut down by student SJWs -
"... that really spoke to how crazy and censorious identity politics has become.  Where there's this idea that there are certain things you can't talk about if you're male, or if you're white.  There are certain things you shouldn't think, there are certain places you shouldn't go and have a debate.  So, this cleansing of controversial arguments from campus life I think is one of the worse problems we face...because what's happening, and we see this in America, in fact, with the tearing down of statues and the raging against Confederate symbols, and so on.    That is basically the expansion of the safe space outside the university.  Because what we're doing is we've got a whole new generation of students leaving university convinced they have a right to go through life without ever being offended, without ever encountering an idea they dislike or which makes them feel hurt or sad.   So, we're unleashing these crazy kids into the world and lo' and behold, they will want to tear down statues that offend them.  They might even want to burn books that offend them.  They will get you sacked from the job that they get....and the office they end working in, if you offend them.  We are creating little monsters."   transcribed from Delingpole broadcast:  source

Leftist deception

"... generation Trump, or the Republican base, however you want to describe them;   Those people are the existential threat to the left.   People who are not white supremacists but Western supremacists.  They're the people the left hates the most because the left is constantly advocating a course for....whether it is socialized health care and ultimately kind of communist political doctrine or whether it's cultural Marxism in the university, in the media, or in Hollywood.  People who love and embrace the values of Western civilization are the left's greatest enemies, and they have to be destroyed at all costs.  One of the ways the left does that is pretending that people who like Western values are really talking about skin color.  So it is sort of a slight of hand.  It's a nasty bit of trickery they do.  If you talk about how great the West is;  If you talk about how brilliant democracy and freedom and America is, they will suggest that it is really code for you liking white people.  Of course, it's ridiculous, but that's the way the left operates."   Milo - YouTube

Either you're hard left or you're a nazi  - Berkeley professor and the student body president recently condemned the school’s decision to allow right-wing speakers on campus.  “Our campus has responded to the rise of Neo-nazism by welcoming them to terrorize, harass and threaten our students,” he wrote, adding, “All so our naive & useless administration can double down the baby boomer free speech branding bullshit. @UCBerkeley should be ashamed.”  source  Judging by the inaccuracy and crudeness of this statement, professorships at UC Berkeley appear more of a political appointment than a scholarly position. 

Just exactly how do conservative speakers "terrorize, harass and threaten"  students?   It is the leftists, like antifa and BLM, that are doing the terror, harassment and threatening at Berkeley.  This is Mario Savio's Berkeley?  "baby boomer free speech branding bullshit"? -  It's not just Baby Boomers to blame, Berkeley professor., there have been others with a very high regard for free speech:
  • 399BC - Socrates speaks at his trial - 'If you offered to let me off this time on condition I am not any longer to speak my mind... I should say to you, "Men of Athens, I shall obey the Gods rather than you."' source
  • 1722ADBenjamin Franklin, writing as Silence Dogood - "Without Freedom of Thought there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as Public Liberty, without Freedom of Speech." source
  • 1992AD - Noam Chomsky, in "Manufacturing Consent",  - 'Goebbels was in favor of free speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you're in favor of free speech, then you're in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise.' source
Marxists not strong on history - "Campuses and Western critics in the last half-century have turned a once risk-taking and heroic Christopher Columbus into an evil emissary of disease and destruction.
History is now seen as one-dimensional melodrama in which our contemporary duty is to pick sinners and saints of the past based on our own modern (quite imperfect) perceptions of morality and then
judge them worthy of either hagiography or banishment from memory — rather than history as tragedy in which various agendas are often far more complex than just evil versus good.(...)
It is fashionable to trash the civilization that created Columbus as destructive and pathological, but those who do so often have never experienced the alternative first-hand or at length, and assume 

that their own prosperity, security, and protected freedoms are birthrights rather than fragilities that exist largely only in the West and Westernized Asia or emanate only from the Western anomalies 
of self-criticism, secular rationalism, unfettered inquiry, free expression, constitutional government, free-market economics, private property and religious tolerance."  source

Democrat's henchmen - Anitfa BLM

It has become a pattern.   Local Democrats in power look the other way, while Antifa and BLM shut down free speech with violence.   The media gives them cover by avoiding coverage of their mayhem.  Of course, if they were thumping leftists, the press would be all over it.  These thugs cross state lines with clubs, helmets, shields and beat people in public.   The police are ordered to look on from a safe distance.    Conservatives are
blamed for the violence in the press for days, weeks.  Establishment Republicans cover their asses when the partisan press has an orgy of condemnation.  In Virginia, the press condemned the slaughter by an insane person at the wheel of a car that caused death and serious injury, as it should be condemned.
But the media was one sided in their coverage of the clash.   The press was silent about the violence from the left.   They would not report on it.   Watch it on YouTube.


The video shows the left was violent.  Why didn't the press report that?  Reporters realize that they work for editors with strong political biases.   If they were to report on Antifa in a negative light, they'd stand a good chance of being condemned a fascist, with SJWs calling for his job.  Deviating from the Globalist narrative has dire consequences in leftist spheres as the recently fired engineer at Google can attest.  Leftists are silencing conservatives, and the career Republican politicians do not push back.

Scientists know all about this.  They've been playing the game for years.  They have the choice of being 'on board' with climate hysteria,
or find themselves without a career.  However,  Scientists at the ends of their careers do speak out.

Get a load of some industrial strength racism from Black Lives Matter.  The press dares not criticize BLM.

Antifa has support in the U.S. Congress - VA, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) on why law enforcement allowed Antifa to use violence.
He explained that if Antifa “was there and did things, they were there because of the Nazis and Confederates.” source  
 Antifa has support in the Trump Administration - Cohn aligned his views with the establishment media, asserting that the violent Antifa counter-protesters were
“standing up for equality and freedom” while the protesters defending Robert E. Lee’s statue were all white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK.  source
Equality?  It's not equal if some people are allowed to speak and others not, determined by thugs with clubs, masks and shields.  
As for freedom... It's under seige in the 21st Century America.  More strong arm suppression of free speech from antifa.

Fear & loathing - 66% of Americans now fear speaking their minds in a politically correct nation: poll. source
There are elections coming up, as always, so will the Dems continue their support of antifa and BLM?  ....................................(click on the pic to enlarge)=========>

The Dems have a problem - "...even though you didn’t don AntiFa garb you are going to be lumped in with them; because you’ve been winking and nodding at them and quietly accepting the normalization of extra-judicial unconstitutional violence as if it were protected speech."(...)  "The worst footage from protest demonstrations will be put on display in campaign advertising and all the claims that Democratic pundits and authors have made claiming America is festooned with 64 million gas-chamber-murdering Nazis.   Everyone who voted for Donald Trump is a Nazi.  They’re all Nazis..." source

A vote for a Democrat is a vote against free speech - Columbia Law School professor Suzanne Goldberg has laid out three methods to help students ban “threatening” guest speakers....Goldberg laid out three possible options concerned students can take if they decide to shut down an upcoming guest lecture event. Goldberg argues that students should embrace the “heckler’s veto,” or the notion that threats of violence from those planning to attend controversial events should justify administrative decisions to cancel such events..   source

The forced silence of the community caused by these violent tactics adds to the gang’s reputation and power,” he added. “This is what local law enforcement across this country is faced with when confronting MS-13 and why it is so difficult to combat this group and obtain the trust of the most affected communities.”  source  Did we ever hear of MS-13 during the Obama Administration?

What have they taught our kids?

excerpt transcribed from a Douglas Murry interview on YouTube
It's about competing virtues, just as sometimes things are about choosing between evils.  And we got caught in this competition between what I've described as justice and mercy.  And we have the tools in our own traditions;  our own traditions of rationalism and philosophy to deal with this.  Aristotle looked at this.  What happens when 2 things that seem to be virtues are in competition?  Well, you must be misunderstanding and misapplying one of them and you have to work out where that is.   In the search to be merciful, we've, among other things,  given up the idea that there should be any justice for anyone living in Europe.  Because we don't have another home.  We are in the process of wrecking the only home we have by saying that absolutely anybody from anywhere in the world, who wants to come into our home and make themselves at home is welcome.   And that is, to my mind, the most wicked thing to do.  And one of the reasons why is that you've totally screwed over future generations.  You've inherited something that you haven't passed on.
In fact, you've decided to destroy the whole thing for your short term emotional misunderstanding.  And I think that is unforgivable.
Where in our schools would students and pupils be taught to carry on this tradition?  Mainly, they are told how to war on it.  That has been happening for generations.
That's the new way to be clever and virtuous.  So maybe they won't pass it on this time.  Across America you can see that.  It seems obvious to me that students in America
haven't been taught the American idea. (...) Free speech:  they don't understand the idea.  It's not just that they want to turn up and holler and jabber, sometimes knock people out,
set alight cars if someone disagrees with their point of  view.  They don't think free speech matters, really.  source

Elites have their diplomas from degraded universities that replaced Liberal education with leftist indoctrination"...the fruits of egalitarianism are ignorance, the habit of intellectual conformity, and the systematic subjection of cultural achievement to political criteria. In the university, this means classes devoted to pop novels, rock videos, and third-rate works chosen simply because their authors are members of the requisite sex, ethnic group, or social minority. It means students who graduate not having read Milton or Dante or Shakespeare—or, what is in some ways even worse, who have been taught to regard the works of such authors chiefly as hunting grounds for examples of patriarchy, homophobia, imperialism, etc. It means faculty and students who regard education as an exercise in disillusionment and who look to the past only to corroborate their sense of superiority and self-satisfaction." source

Universities teach students to be racists, and they've succeeded.   But, administering politically correct racism (identity politics) at university can become rather a quagmire.  These students who were "taught" by cultural Marxists are in our elementary schools.

Violence brewed on Facebook

It's not just the use of Facebook by gleeful Muslims broadcasting their murders and rapes in Sweden, Facebook is a worldwide platform connecting 
mentally disturbed, potential killers with those who encourage murder and assassination.  By the way, isn't Facebook run by leftists?

"Facebook users posting to an anti-Republican group reportedly followed by the suspected Alexandria gunman celebrated his shooting rampage Wednesday that injured
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others.  According to the Belleville News-Democrat, James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, belonged to a number
of anti-Republican groups, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party,”  before he opened fire on Republican congressional members at
Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday morning." Washington Times
while on the topic of encouraging violence...President Trump is assassinated daily in the Delacorte Theater in Central Park with corporate backing including CNN.
Imagine the reaction from CNN had there been a play in Central Park daily assassinating Pres. Obama, funded by Fox news.  What is CNN thinking (?)...because if
Trump is assassinated, a genuine conservative takes over in the Oval office, and people will be taking  a hard look at those who encouraged the assassination of the President of the United States.

The politicians now have hundreds of troops protecting them while telling the rest of us to Keep Calm, Stay 'United' and Carry On. But who is going to protect OUR kids from the terror THEY let in?  Katie Hopkins

...As the reaction to these events drifts into the formulaic, and they want it to be formulaic.  They want you to get used to it.  They want you to switch on the news and say "What is it tonight?  Oh look, it's Orlando...no wait, Boston...no wait, Nice...no, Berlin....no, Brussels...no, Manchester."  And then, you adopt the supportive hashtag, and you change your Twitter avatar, and after a couple of days, you've forgotten until the next city gets blown up.  That's the policy.  That actually is the policy of the Western world.  The French Prime Minister, the Mayor of London say that these events are just now part of what it means to live in a big city.  Well, it didn't used to be.  Twenty or thirty years ago, they weren't part of what it meant to be living in a big city.  This is not a problem that is native to Nice, or to Brussels, or to Manchester.  It's a problem that's imported to Western cities.  And those Western cities that did not import the problem, for example, Warsaw, or Bucharest, or Tokyo:  First world cities don't have that problem.  They did not import that problem.
Everything is changing.  The reason why this guy was able to pull off what he did is because there is now security to get into concerts; To get into sporting events; To get in anywhere...I mean, if you go into a French shopping mall, they search your bag to make sure you've just got clothes and groceries in there.  So there's more and more security lines and these guys have figured out you don't even need to get through into the safe zone, you just wait outside the security perimeter because that is where the people are.  The old line about, "Why do you rob banks?", "Because that's where the money is."  Well, why do you wait outside the security perimeter, outside the safe zone?  Because that's where the people are, lining up in the hundreds.  And that's why, as I predicted, I'm sad to say, in a column for McCleans  in 2007, 2008 something like that....We've seen even the dumbest Jihadists conclude that the easiest place to blow people up is outside the security lines and this has happened at Brussels airport, Istanbul airport, and I think it was Ft. Lauderdale in Florida, and now, outside the secure zone at the Ariana Grande concert.  What are you going to do?  No matter how far out you move the security perimeter, eventually it stops, and that's where the people line up to get in, or a bottleneck to get out, and that's where the bomber is waiting for you.  And we now live in this absurd world where everything has to have a security perimeter. This didn't happen in the IRA days.  In the IRA days, you could still go to pop concerts and sporting events with ease.  Now, everything's got to have a security perimeter.  Now, every little pedestrian arcade has to have these ugly bollards blocking everything off.  So, we can't carry on.  Everything is changing.  The one thing that might make a difference, such as moving the security perimeter to the national border, which would seem like an obvious place for security perimeters, is the one thing politicians, mainstream politicians across the Western world will not consider.

Terror on the rise:  "6.6 Million Refugees Are Trying to Get into Europe"... mostly men of military age with no job skills, can't speak the language, unlikely to assimilate,
and expecting generous welfare....how is that good for any country?  Also, many of them want to  kill you.  (The exact opposite of what you want with a rational immigration policy).
Europe does not have adequate resources to keep them out.  Liberals in charge.  It's not a refugee issue.  It's the invasion of Europe by Muslims, who hold the demographic winning hand.
Britain, Belgium, France, Finland, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Greece, Austria are quickly becoming Islamic.
Europe defeated - It's irreversible, Europeans  have post-structuralist/Globalist leaders who believe all cultures are equal, despite the evidence.  European leaders do their best to silence free speech in order to conceal the damage done by their policy of mass Muslim migration. 
It doesn't take many Muslims to change a country - Police in Finland released a third suspect Friday in a fatal stabbing attack allegedly carried out by a Moroccan asylum-seeker, a development
that came hours after the Nordic country’s news agency said officers will be issued MP5 submachine guns in addition to their normal equipment.  source   Armed military to replace cops on Danish streets and border.  source   Moderate Swedish politicians call for military to be deployed in No Go Zones.  source  Anti-semitism on the rise in  Europe.  Rampant crime in Sweden?  source
Greece - Island of Lesbos on strike in protest against becoming migrant 'prison' - “The message (today) was that we can’t take it any more,” Mayor Galinos said. “Lesbos is in a state of emergency.”  source
Italian Veterans Group Ordered to Remove Christmas Tree to Avoid 'Offending' Muslims.
EU - More migrants needed, because....well anyhow, they can't be stopped.  source   Want more no go zones and welfare recipients with no intention of working, or even learning the language?     

Sweden -  After a significant rise in the number of hand grenade attacks, Swedish authorities are proposing a bill of amnesty for those willing to turn in their weapons.(...) In 2014, Swedish police recorded only eight cases that involved the use of hand grenades while 2016 saw that number grow to 52.(...) Much of the hand grenade-related crime has been limited to the heavily migrant populated southern city of Malmö where a grenade was randomly found in a park earlier this year while police were searching for a firearm related to a shooting that had taken place nearby.(...)  Along with grenade attacks, bombings, including car bombs, have also begun to become more frequent in Sweden. In October, the police station in Helsingborg saw its facade demolished by an explosion that Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven described as an attack on democracy.  source

"Yet the subject of immigration has been all but entirely absent from the current UK election campaign. Thirty years ago, in the interests of stopping IRA terrorism, the British state was not above preventing the internal movement within its borders of unconvicted, uncharged, unarrested Republican sympathizers seeking to take a ferry from Belfast to Liverpool.  Today it declares it can do nothing to prevent the movement of large numbers of the Muslim world from thousands of miles away to the heart of the United Kingdom.  It's just a fact of life - like being blown up when you go to a pop concert."

"All of us have gotten things wrong since 9/11. But few of us have gotten things as disastrously wrong as May and Merkel and Hollande and an entire generation of European political leaders who insist that remorseless incremental Islamization is both unstoppable and manageable.  It is neither - and, for the sake of the dead of last night's carnage and for those of the next one, it is necessary to face that honestly."  Mark Steyn

What happened to our universities?

The following excerpt was transcribed from a Camille Paglia lecture and Q 'n' A -
I'm also calling for an end to this insanity of excluding biology from gender studies.  How in the world did this happen?   How did women's studies and gender studies end teaching about gender without any reference whatsoever to biology or to hormones?  Right now, Post Structuralism dominates gender studies everywhere.  (...)
The Post Structuralists pose as leftists.  But what were they doing in the past few decades with this crazy parasitic growth of this administrator master class that's taken over the universities?...in a period of obscene rise in tuition costs...student debt that's crippling families...where were these leftists, these great leftists on our college campuses?  Were they resisting the administrators?  Were they denouncing student debts?  Were they lamenting the plight of adjunct teachers?  No-ooo, they were running to conferences talking about Foucault with their stupid elitist jargon.  They thought that's leftism?  These Post Structuralists are the worst mercenary careerists in this country.  The leading Post Structuralists...are retiring as multi-millionaires, and they pose as leftists.  It is a scandal.  Forget Foucault, for heavens sakes.  It's absolutely absurd.  So, we have to bring biology and authentic study of medicine and anthropology and history back into gender studies.  (...)
I'm on the warpath against the bureaucracy of the campuses. (...) The faculties are totally castrated.   What are they doing?   The faculties have absolutely been marginalized in this country.   They didn't utter a peep as this administrative master class took over.  The administrators who are in league with federal mandates or federal authorities in Washington (DC).   We're living in an age of Stalinism right now.
And again, the leftists talk the big talk, but they do nothing where it really matters, which is to demand a 50% reduction in the number of administrators.  And, also a 75% reduction in their salaries, which often exceeds that of the faculty members.  People should realize how many of the ills I'm decrying about, the suppression of speech and free thought on campus is coming from administrators who are these social welfare do-gooders.  Oscar Wilde was scathing about these aggressive philanthropists who dominated the Victorian Period.  -source
  • The University of Wisconsin-Madison is hiring a Specialist to plan social justice leadership retreats, host "discussion groups for marginalized populations,"   and generally "advance social justice" on campus.
Excerpt from a Victor Davis Hanson article  -  Napolitano, president of the UC system.  Her office has requested tuition increases.  Student debt is reaching all-time highs in California.  At a time that the over-taxed state is facing billion-dollar budget deficits, some retired UC professors are reported to have been earning more than $300,000 in pensions while returning as emeriti instructors;  this maxes out their total state compensation at more than a half-million dollars a year.  And yet Napolitano apparently failed to disclose that she had accumulated a slush fund of some $175 million in reserve cash.  Her stash reportedly was the result of a long and deliberate practice of requesting far more money that she actually planned to spend.  That way, she freed up capital for her own agendas — one of which seems to have been to fund lavish retirement parties. Over four years, Napolitano inter alia also billed the university more than $200,000 a year for her personal apartment. UC, like many contemporary progressive institutions, has a paradoxical view of capitalism and its fruits: Progressive social-justice warriors must be well accommodated first, if, second, they are to advance social justice.
Even as Napolitano (infamous as Homeland Security secretary for authorizing a memo suggesting that returning military veterans and right-wingers rather than radical Islamists posed the greatest terrorist threat to national security) championed social-justicea gendas, from global warming to safe and sanctuary spaces, she seemed to adopt an imperial lifestyle at public expense.  Will she be fired for gross negligence?  Malfeasance?  Probably not — and for a variety of well-known reasons.  Savvy public officials purchase de facto indemnity insurance by professing progressive solidarity. Napolitano learned long ago — during her various missteps in the Obama administration — that “noble” aims can more than justify unsavory means to obtain them. In contrast, had she entered UC from the corporate world, had she supported issues such as guaranteeing free speech on campus, or had she opposed the spread of segregated safe spaces and campus attacks oninvited speakers, then she probably would have been fired over this latest scandal.  Source

How the universities supresses free speech - "It's a Kafkaesque cycle, where the universities and the media;  These organs of group think establish an unsafe environment for conservatives, then blame and financially charge those conservatives for the environment  they, themselves, have created.  And implying, as they do so that it is the conservatives and conservative ideas that are responsible for the incidences of violence, and ignoring the fact that all the violence comes from the left."  excerpted from You Tube vlog

In the wake of Obama appeasement

"Obama is the U.S. version of Stanley Baldwin, the suave, three-time British
prime minister of the 1920s and 1930s. Baldwin’s last tenure (1935–1937) 
coincided with the rapid rise of aggressive German, Italian, and Japanese Fascism.

Baldwin was a passionate spokesman for disarmament.  He helped organize
peace conferences. He tirelessly lectured on the need for pacifism. He basked
in the praise of his good intentions. Baldwin assured Fascists that he was not 
rearming Britain.  Instead, he preached that the deadly new weapons of the 
20th century made war so unthinkable that it would be almost impossible for it to break out.

Baldwin left office when the world was still relatively quiet.   But his appeasement
and pacifism had sown the seeds for a global conflagration soon to come.
Obama, the Nobel peace laureate and former president, resembles Baldwin. Both seemed to believe
that war breaks out only because of misunderstandings that reflect honest differences. Therefore,
tensions between aggressors and their targets can be remedied by more talk, international agreements,
goodwill, and concessions.

Ideas such as strategic deterrence were apparently considered by both Baldwin and Obama to be
Neanderthal, judging from Baldwin’s naÏve efforts to ask Hitler not to rearm or annex territory,
and Obama’s “lead from behind” foreign policy and his pledge never to “do stupid sh**” abroad.
Aggressors clearly assumed that Obama’s assurances were green lights to further their own agendas
without consequences." Victor Davis Hanson

What could possibly go wrong? - Obama's National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, in response to Pres. Trump's warning to N. Korea, “History shows that we can, if we must,
tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” source
Consider Kim Jong Un with the nuclear capability to intimidate, blackmail or shake down any nation.  S. Korea and Japan would have to go nuclear, and we'd have ourselves a nuclear arms race.
Is there anyone who wants that?   Can we live with Kim Jong Un selling nukes to rogue nations?  If the U.S. tolerated nukes in N. Korea, Saudi Arabia would be forced to go nuclear (yet another nuke arms race) being the only way to counter Iran's nuclear arsenal.  We have to stop NK.
