Five items in total…

“So, why would a state board of education want to hire teachers too ill-educated to be a teacher? Why would a state want to put teachers in the classroom who can’t read? Simple, it’s all to satisfy the left’s fanatical, self-destructive obsession of seeing racism in every single aspect of life… Detractors of the test claim it is all about racism because fewer African American and Hispanic candidates pass the literacy tests compared to whites. According to the state, 46 percent of Hispanic candidates and only 41 percent of blacks pass the test… Their conclusion is unsurprising: the test is racist.” – Warner Todd Huston, “New York about to eliminate test meant to see if teachers can read… because raaacism!” – Constitution, March 13th, 2017.

M-103 passes: Now the “hate-crimes” will begin in earnest

Friday, March 24th, 2017

“There is (also) concern that the motion will, in some manner, chill valid criticism of Islamist terror, or will not make allowance for legitimate criticism or analysis of Islam. Such criticism would now be forced to wear the degrading mantle of Islamophobia. Given this welter of mixed impressions and varied understandings of the very point of the motion, how effective can it be?… There is the key term itself, Islamophobia. As I have suggested in an earlier piece, this recent coinage, Islamophobia, is itself a contested term” (1).

Posts down recently…

This will happen from time to time, my health isn’t always that good, and sometimes I just need to take a break.

I try hard to gather cogent information for those who do not have as much time as I do to go through large amounts of information, and I hope that my efforts will go some distance towards filling a useful niche.

It seems unlikely that I will find myself unable to post anything for some time yet, but if that day ever arrives, I will say so.

“This does not even begin to touch on the random attacks in the inevitable ‘clash of civilizations’ being abruptly foisted upon Europe and America by these Deep State lunatics, who at the behest of the international bankers and corporations do not care how much violence takes place as long as they can work towards removing all borders, using the inevitable violence and terrorism that results to clamp down on everyone’s civil liberties, human rights, and constitutional guarantees, in order to solidify and consolidate their power.” – Rahul D. Manchanda, “Deep State sgainst Trump’s visa ban because their false flag agents are from those nations” – Modern Diplomacy, March 9th, 2017 .

Four items in total…

“I am very disturbed by a growing phenomenon in the west I would describe as hijab reverence – what seems to me a partly well-organized, a partly jump-on-the-bandwagon campaign among our left-wing cultural elites… The hijab is not prescribed by Islam, as countless Islamic scholars have told us. It is a cultural custom invented by men in the most patriarchal regions of the planet. In its modern incarnation, it is often a political tool signaling anti-western sentiment… In one high-density Muslim enclave in Sweden, a sticker recently appeared in a public place, reading, ‘Women who don’t wear a headscarf are asking to be raped.’ Is that really an attitude we want to give the slightest opening to here?” – Barbara Kay, “A chastity belt worn on the head: There is nothing wonderful about the hijab” – The Rebel, March 10th, 2017.

Five items in total…

“The vast majority of teaching staff have spent their entire lives in a classroom. From nursery to primary school, from primary onto secondary, then on to college and university and back into the classroom as teachers… They have virtually no concept of reality outside of the school gates. And what is extremely worrying is that these are the people who are entrusted to shape young minds… This is why for the last twenty years we’ve seen school leavers who can barely function in society, have no social skills, are completely over-sensitive and have next to nothing to offer the job market except for a deep knowledge of ‘racism’ and safe spaces’.” – Darren Holdstock, “The vast majority of teaching staff have spent their entire lives in a classroom” – British National Party, March 11th, 2017.

Turkey’s arrogant intrusion into Danish sovereignty

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

“Turkey announced a series of political sanctions against the Netherlands on Monday over its refusal to allow two Turkish ministers to campaign there, including halting high-level political discussions between the two countries and closing Turkish air space to Dutch diplomats… The (Turkish foreign) ministry also objected to what it called a ‘disproportionate’ use of force against demonstrators at a protest afterward… (Erdogan) went on to advise Turks living in Europe not to vote for parties that he described as ‘enemies of Turkey’…” (*).
