University considers bannign the National Anthem from graduation ceremonies - because of its inks to 'increasing far right nationalism'

Via dailymail.co.uk

A spokesperson from King’s College London said: ‘We are always open to feedback from students, staff and alumni and are currently in discussion with KCLSU student officers about various elements of the ceremonies, including the use of the National Anthem.

Sounds like Kings College needs to call in J.J. Abrams to reboot the national anthem.


Liberal professors outnumber conservaties nearly 12 to 1, study finds

Via washingtontimes.com

Out of five departments analyzed by the authors, the field friendliest to conservative scholars is economics, where there are only 4.5 liberal professors for every conservative.

The disparity is highest at the most prestigious universities, the study finds. Pennsylvania State University, for instance, has a comparatively balanced faculty ratio of 6 to 1, while Ohio State University enjoys even closer ideological parity at 3.2 to 1. But a pair of Ivy League universities, Columbia and Princeton, both weigh in at 30 to 1.

If only liberals were as passionate about intellectual diversity  as they are about gender and racial diversity.

It is understood that there were protests amid fears that white students would be cast as leads and expected to portray Ancient Egyptians and slaves.

Thank goodness that hardworking SJWs are out there making sure that black stories are not being told.


Europe tells British press not to reveal if terrorists are Muslims

Via express.co.uk

In the 83-page report, the Commission said: “ECRI considers that, in light of the fact that Muslims are increasingly under the spotlight as a result of recent around the world, fuelling prejudice against Muslims shows a reckless disregard, not only for the dignity of the great majority of Muslims in the United Kingdom, but also for their safety.

“In this context, it draws attention to a recent study by Teeside University suggesting that where the media stress the Muslim background of perpetrators of terrorist acts, and devote significant coverage to it, the violent backlash against Muslims is likely to be greater than in cases where the perpetrators’ motivation is downplayed or rejected in favour of alternative explanations.”

You won’t very often see more blatant advocating for open media dishonesty. “the perpetrators’ motivation is downplayed or rejected in favour of alternative explanations“.

The perpetrators’ motivations are the perpetrators’ motivations, and we all know what those are, Allahu Akbar.

A spokesperson for Vienna Police said Ibrahim had attempted to run down passers-by while shouting “Allahu Akbar”, repeating the Islamic phrase meaning “God is Great” while struggling against officers during his arrest.

Prosecutors said all lines of investigation were open but that a “religious motive could not be excluded” after a copy of the Quran was found on a car seat, with investigators searching Ibrahim’s home, laptop and electronic devices.

Let’s not jump to conclusions.


Chicago Police officer says she fearewd using gun while being beaten

“She thought she was going to die. She knew that she should shoot this guy, but she chose not to, because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” Supt. Johnson said.

A nearby business captured surveillance video of the incident. The owner didn’t see the incident firsthand, but saw how the incident unfolded on the surveillance video.

“It is terrible. It is total disregard for law enforcement. They put their lives forward every day for us and to see somebody do this, to pummel the police officer is terrible. It is a terrible thing,” business owner Louie Rainone said.

At least these cops are finally learning that black lives matter, amiright?


Computer scientist shuts down mansplainer who told her to learn Java

Ironically, and yet very non-ironically, one of Golbeck’s research areas is online harassment, including studying cases like Gamer Gate, the Ku Klux Klan and different hate groups. “I feel like it could have been worse,” she said, adding, “that said, the whole experience has been draining.”

Hahaha, oh man, cue the violins. It sounds incredibly taxing. How inspiring that you were able to soldier through this ordeal where, undoubtedly, lesser folk would have just given up and killed themselves.

It behooves me to say at this point, that yes, Java is shit, Golbeck is right about that. But what an incredibly chilling climate we are creating when a man can’t disagree with a woman without news articles being written about it. Yes it appears he was wrong to assume she didn’t know the language, but why the hell do other people turn around and assume that he based that on her being female, rather than her not liking a language he is clearly very enthusiastic about?


HBO's glossy new thriller 'Westworld' suffers from the same sexism as 'Game of Thrones'

Via dailydot.com

Westworld offers a entertaining marriage between high-concept science fiction and glossy, expensive human drama. Its main flaw is one it shares with Game of Thrones: gratuitous violence against women. Despite the presence of interesting female characters like Dolores and theme park manager Theresa Cullen (Sidse Babett Knudsen), sexism is built into the basic concept of Westworld. As a quasi-realistic recreation of Wild West adventure tropes, it’s a male fantasy paradise.

You can never please these people. Have violence happen to women in your fiction? Misogyny. Don’t allow violence against women in your game? Misogyny. Put less focus on female characters? You better believe that’s misogyny!

Army adverts for troops who 'have to be black'

Via dailymail.co.uk

It would appear the Army advert falls foul of the law. The Equality Act 2010 code of practice states: ‘If an employer makes a statement in an advertisement that in offering employment they will treat applicants less favourably because of a protected characteristic, this would amount to direct discrimination.’

Last night the Army promised to change the wording of the advert, issued by the 102 Logistic Brigade, but it will do little to erase the impression that it has bowed to growing diversity demands being made on public organisations.

Given what we heard about the BBC last week, all I can is it must suck to be a white dude in the UK looking for work.


SJW Blames Hurricane Mathrew Deaths on 'Environmental Racism'

Via dailycaller.com

The death toll in haiti from Hurricane Matthew is 339. That's what environmental racism looks like.

Bogado has previously been published in other left wing politicians like Mother Jones, Newsweek Argentina, Colorlines.com and The Huffington Post.

This is one of those times where I feel like the story I’m commenting on is so obviously, painstakingly stupid that it’s, frankly, beyond justifying with a comment of any kind, so instead I’ll just give you this funny comment one of my facebook followers left when I posted it there:

At first I thought it was ridiculous, hurricanes can’t be racist, then I saw it’s police uniform, and it’s gun out, I kept yelling, “officer Hurricane, they Dindu nuffin” and “they got they hands up surrenderin” but that didn’t stop officer Hurricane, he shot them all, then started throwing drugs and guns all over the place to make it look like self defence… I was astounded… it was at that point I saw on the arm of the Hurricane, a swastika!!! Officer Hurricane was a Nazi!!!
