Feminazis and #Metoo

This delightful mashup of political ideas and reality certainly defines schadenfreude.

What Happens to #MeToo When a Feminist Is the Accused?

Nimrod Reitman accused his former N.Y.U. graduate school adviser, Avital Ronell, of sexually harassing him, and the university found her responsible. But some leading feminist scholars have supported her in ways that echo the defenses of male harassers.Credit

The case seems like a familiar story turned on its head: Avital Ronell, a world-renowned female professor of German and Comparative Literature at New York University, was found responsible for sexually harassing a male former graduate student, Nimrod Reitman.

An 11-month Title IX investigation found Professor Ronell, described by a colleague as “one of the very few philosopher-stars of this world,” responsible for sexual harassment, both physical and verbal, to the extent that her behavior was “sufficiently pervasive to alter the terms and conditions of Mr. Reitman’s learning environment.” The university has suspended Professor Ronell for the coming academic year.
In the Title IX final report, excerpts of which were obtained by The New York Times, Mr. Reitman said that she had sexually harassed him for three years, and shared dozens of emails in which she referred to him as “my most adored one,” “Sweet cuddly Baby,” “cock-er spaniel,” and “my astounding and beautiful Nimrod.”

Coming in the middle of the #MeToo movement’s reckoning over sexual misconduct, it raised a challenge for feminists — how to respond when one of their own behaved badly. And the response has roiled a corner of academia.

Soon after the university made its final, confidential determination this spring, a group of scholars from around the world, including prominent feminists, sent a letter to N.Y.U. in defense of Professor Ronell. Judith Butler, the author of the book “Gender Trouble” and one of the most influential feminist scholars today, was first on the list.[snip]

Mr. Reitman, who is now 34 and is a visiting fellow at Harvard, says that Professor Ronell kissed and touched him repeatedly, slept in his bed with him, required him to lie in her bed, held his hand, texted, emailed and called him constantly, and refused to work with him if he did not reciprocate. Mr. Reitman is gay and is now married to a man; Professor Ronell is a lesbian.

OMG, we here at Loon Watch certainly wish we could have made this up. This delectable furball personifies the BS found in radical thought.
(for those who sign)
There will have to be a reckoning twixt hither and yon. The man hating doxies are watching their ‘Cow’ get gored. Previously bashed males of course can enjoy this rollicking quandary of the bent bimbos while sipping on an adult potable.
When stupidity crashes head on into ignorant fantasy, bolstered by the whimpering of the lost, the world is set right.

Idiot’s Corner

Ocasio-Cortez found herself seated next to an eight year old girl at a campaign rally. She turned to her asking, “Do you want to talk? These rallies go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your seatmate.”

The girl, who had just started to read her book, replied, “What would you want to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said the candidate. “How about why Socialism is Heaven on earth and Hell is our current system?” as she smiled smugly.

“Okay,” she said. “That could be interesting topic but let me ask you a question first.

A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps.

Why do you suppose that is?”

The political wannabe, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, ponders it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”

To which the eight year old replied, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss Socialism as a good political system, when you don’t know shit?”

Illegal Immigration

Care for a helping of irony? Mexico can provide it and then some.

Mexico is angry because

the shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora , Mexico do not like it. Can you believe the nerve of these people? It’s almost funny. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico.

The state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona ‘s new employer crackdown on illegal s from Mexico . It seems that many Mexican illegal s are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off. A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona ‘s new ‘Employer Sanctions Law’ will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, – Arizona’s southern neighbor – made up of mostly small towns – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money.

The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States. Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government instead of ours.

‘How can Arizona pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales . ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,’ she said, speaking in Spanish. ‘Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their hometowns in Sonora without jobs,’ she said ‘We are one family, socially and economically,’ she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona .

Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico , and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico ‘s citizens. It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs.

Too bad that other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona . Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing.

Perhaps we need to rewrite our immigration laws, make them more specific with less verbiage. These will do:

  1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
  2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language.
  3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
  4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
  5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
  6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or any other government assistance programs. Any who are a burden will be deported.
  7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
  8. If foreigners come here and buy land, their options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
  9. Foreigners may have NO protests; NO demonstrations, NO waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, NO bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.
  10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.

Are these too tough, racist,anti-immigrant? Or are they precisely right.
Or are you thinking they’re racist, evil and nasty toward the POOR, the DOWNTRODDEN, the PEOPLE of COLOR just wanting to partake of the American social system.

For all you who think they’re too harsh, insensitive and reek of “White Privilege” you need to know from what Country they are law.

These laws are the formal legal immigration laws of MEXICO. They are completely favorable to the desires of that Government. Live with and by them or don’t emigrate. Now tell me how racist they are.

Mexico makes sure that the problems we face today won’t exist when the people who work for a living will not be outnumbered by the people who VOTE for a living.

Who vetted this individual, Obama? We guess there is a shortage of malevolent characters here, so they selected this clown.

Court Documents: ISIS Fighter Killed an Iraqi Police Officer Days After Being Approved for US Refugee Status

An Iraqi refugee arrested in California Wednesday is accused of murdering a man in Anbar province on behalf of ISIS – less than three weeks after U.S. officials in Turkey approved his application for asylum in the United States.

Omar Ameen, 45, was arrested at an apartment in Sacramento by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

According to extradition documents filed in federal court, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials in Turkey approved his application for refugee status on June 5, 2014.

“Ameen did not immigrate directly to the United States following the approval of his application, but instead is alleged to have returned to Iraq to commit the murder that is the subject of this extradition request.”

Seventeen days later after receiving approval to resettle in the U.S. as a refugee, Ameen and a group of fellow ISIS fighters entered the town of Rawah on June 22 – one day after it fell to the Sunni jihadists – and attacked an Iraqi police officer, the documents state. [snip]

The big surprise is he didn’t go to Chicago. Much activity he would favor is common on the streets every night.
