Snowflakes on Parade

These delicates can’t be allowed to pick out a costume for Halloween lest they run afoul of some PC regulation concerning ‘Cultural Appropriation’. Why don’t they all co nekkid with their naughty bits flopping about in the chilly night time air. But then someone will accuse them of appropriating human culture. That would be true of course.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear

Throughout October, universities across the nation are warning their students against Halloween costumes some consider offensive.

Gone are the days when college students could dress up without fear of being reported to a bias response team. In recent years, more and more campus leaders have made it their mission to warn students what not to wear.

Fliers, memos, workshops and more impart the admonitions.

“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”

“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students. [snip]

At a “Conversation Circle” at Princeton University this Sunday, students will “engage in a dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

With this last we believe we’re into the area of felonious costumes.

If these fragile individuals need help with ideas, why not go forth gowned as faculty members, Pelosi, Shumer or Hollywood celebs in sumptuary raiment. A campus full of Harvey costumes should bring massive chuckles.

Honoring the NFL and ‘Free Speech’

The State owned Media colludes with the NFL to make sure that the clowns players rights to FREE SPEECH is not impinged. We note how they always stood up for thin in the past.

IF you watch a game, think about how these players were treated for their Speech rights.

NFL History – Says it all

    • In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.
    • In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.
    • In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.
    • In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.
    • In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem…)
    • In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.
    • In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
    • So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression all of a sudden….

Idiot’s Corner

All these holier than thou people either live in gated communities or have armed bodyguards. Just like Jimmy Kimmel says from his phalanx of armed bodyguards, “We need to ban guns.” Of course Jimmy, except for your protection.

Atlantic Editor: You’re A Bad Parent If You Own A Gun

[snip
] LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: The polling shows that most Americans agree with the congresswoman on this.

DAVID FRUM: Well, I wish that were true, but I think when you face the reality, it just isn’t. One of the things that we have seen over the past decade is a rising support among Americans for ever broader definitions of gun rights in exactly the way that Justice Burger warned us against. But that it where the country is.

And so it makes this — and this is a really painful thing to say — these technical fixes people look for, maybe if we had banned this implement or regulated that implement — there is something very wrong with the American gun culture. Three percent of the people own 50 percent of the weapons in this country — I mean, a tiny number of people and vast numbers of weapons.

Until you persuade people that it is just dangerous to themselves, to their children, you’re not a good parent if you have a gun in the house, you’re not protecting your family, you’re a bad parent if you have a gun in the house, until you drill that idea into people’s heads and persuade them to change the way we changed about cigarettes and seatbelts, these technical fixes aren’t going to accomplish a lot. And pubic opinion — you can make it look like it’s on your side if you ask the poll question the right way, but operationally it’s not.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s really going to go over well; telling Americans that they’re bad parents for exercising their constitutional right to own firearms. If anything, that will drive up sales. The firearm is an integral part of American culture and history. There is no escaping that, neither is the incessant push by liberals to blame the tens of millions (the overwhelming majority) of law-abiding American gun owners for the actions of criminals and insane people. Yet, the anti-gun Left keeps doing it, Americans still buy firearms in record numbers; Obama was a terrific salesman, and the Second Amendment stands strong.

Who knows, he might even have a carry permit for his own protection. The old “For Me, not for Thee” BS they much favor.
