“World Without Whiteness” Professor DOUBLES DOWN

vlcsnap-2016-04-27-17h07m35s185After making headlines earlier in the month for his “Imagine A World Without WHITENESS” presentation, Portland Community College history and humanities professor James Harrison defended his statements, while once again channeling John Lennon, and blaming the media for the outrage.

He compares his plight to the time when the media took Lennon’s quote of “We are more popular than Jesus” out of context, and calls the outlets who covered his last event “yellow journalism”, despite the fact that several uncut videos were posted, including the entire 38 minute speech.

After his diatribe, he went on to give his latest presentation, “How Some Human Beings Became White”, where he says that people of several different European nationalities were not considered “white” at first, until they separated themselves from black folks and integrated more with those of English and French decent, until they were eventually accepted as “white”, and thus, benefiting from their “whiteness”.

“If you are of Irish decent, or Italian decent, you’re not officially white. The Polish race? They weren’t white. Greeks were not white. Hungarians were not white. Slowly but slowly, they became white. So, that whole movement along the line of ‘what is white’ it’s not fixed at all. What it does is, it provides something, again, that you need to look up, something called ‘white privilege’; the privilege of having white skin. Which a lot of people say, ‘ehh, I don’t believe it’ but again, if you’ve never heard of it, there’s a tendency to doubt it, to dispute it, and say ‘that’s not true’. I encourage you, if you heard anything that I said that you doubt, you can ask me about it. There’s a new world coming. In fact, it’s already here”

“Once the Irish become accepted, then they don’t want other groups coming in. Those are now the barbarians. They were the barbarians, and now the outsiders are barbarians. And so the Irish become as prejudice as any other group. Now, at this point, I need to tell you when I’m using that, I am using a generalization, it does not mean that every single person of Irish decent, but just the group as a whole begins to move. And whether you like or participate in it, you benefit from that move”

And here’s his entire presentation, 37 minutes uncut:

“White Fragility” Is The New White Guilt Concept

vlcsnap-2016-04-27-16h04m12s19Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month” has shed light on several concepts that have been brewing beneath the surface for years behind closed doors in academia. One such idea is called “white fragility”, where you’re racist if you push back against the people who imagine a world without whiteness or who openly say they want to breed white people out of existence. In fact, entire events have been based around this concept of “white fragility”.

Let’s let them define it: “White fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium.” And “White fragility is, at its essence, a gun level pushback. It’s like the fight or flight response of white people who want to believe that they, and the world by extension, are less racially divisive than they really are.”

But why is there “white fragility”? “Because of their position of privilege and accustomed racial comfort, whites will often display racial arrogance by denying, debating, trivializing racism or critical thought regarding racial conflict”

The presenter, Melinda Bullen, goes on to desrcribe the “emotions and behaviors” of white fragility: “If we identify as an ally, there’s a danger in reveling and feeling special for doing the work. But ultimately that takes away, and puts attention back on the white person” The emotions include Guilt, anger, relational, anesthetization, dismissiveness, disconnection, social impotence, silence, Appreciation or exaltation, and fear.

Bullen, who works as the “Diversity Resource Center” coordinator at Mt. Hood Community College, then explains some of the strategies for dealing with white fragility. “White racism is ultimately a white problem and the burden for interrupting belongs to white people” because “So often whiteness isn’t seen as a race. It’s like ‘everybody has a race’ or whatever.” You should also “avoid seeking validation from the person of color you relate to the most” because “I want to be put up on that ‘good white person’ pedestal”.

And also: “Seeing yourself as well-meaning removes responsibility for our actions… Good intentions are one of the great hindrances to honest conversations about race. There’s a feeling of action when we view a painful situation using the reason of good intention. But it doesn’t do anything to affect the impact that the action had on someone else… I want you to gather in groups of three. And I’d like you to discuss the impact white fragility has on your work, organization, or those you serve through our organization.”

Towards the end of the session, they concluded that “whiteness history month” “comes at a cost to colleagues of color.”

So, if you try to dismantle racism and whiteness, then you’re racist because that harms people of color. If you ignore it, you’re still racist. If you’re not actively trying to dismantle it, then you’re also racist.

REPORT: Bernie Supporters Won’t Back Hillary EVEN IF HE ENDORSES HER

Bernie supporters Hillary

Hillary is trying to lay the groundwork for bringing Bernie Sanders supporters into her camp but that task might be more difficult than she or anyone in her party thinks.

Inquisitr reports:

‘Bernie Or Bust’: Bernie Sanders’ Supporters Vow Not To Support Hillary Clinton Even If He Endorses Her

In the event that Bernie Sanders does not get the Democratic nomination in the 2016 presidential race, the Democratic party has a huge problem on their hands. Many of Sanders’ supporters are making it clear that they are “Bernie or Bust,” meaning that if he doesn’t get the nomination, they still won’t vote for Hillary Clinton. This spells big trouble for the Clinton campaign and will definitely make it hard for her to beat any Republican nominee.

Bernie Sanders has been compared to Ralph Nader as far as his power to split the Democratic party, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Sanders has said before, whether it will actually be the case or not, that he won’t run as an Independent if he doesn’t win the Democratic nomination. That doesn’t mean all his supporters are a sure thing to move on over to vote for Hillary Clinton though. Actually, many Sanders supporters have vowed to vote “Bernie or Bust” and will either write him in for the general election or vote for any number of people who are not Hillary Clinton. The Revolt Against Plutocracy campaign is asking Bernie Sanders’ supporters to make a pledge to either write in Sanders or vote for the Green Party in the event that he doesn’t win the Democratic nomination.

Even left wing Salon is pushing the idea:

Despite what many people in media are saying, Democrats have a bigger problem with party unity than Republicans.


Steven Crowder Lays Into Social Justice Warriors IN EPIC SMACKDOWN AT UMASS (VIDEO)

Crowder UMass

Steven Crowder, Milo Yiannopoulos and Christina Hoff Sommers visited the University of Massachusetts in Amherst this week and before their panel could even start, leftists in the audience tried to heckle them.

Steven Crowder used the opportunity to provide an epic smackdown.

From Crowder’s website:

Steven Crowder Delivers Most Epic Smackdown of Leftist Protestors Ever

Our own Steven Crowder headed to the University of Massachusetts (UMass) yesterday to co-panel an event called “The Triggering” with Christina Hoff Sommers and Milo Yiannopoulos. Steven had hopes of telling a few jokes. You know, those words that form sentences with punchlines at the end? Well as bad luck would have it, a leftist protester, or social justice warrior (SJW) was having none of that. Crowder put him through the figurative meat grinder. Yeah, the bad luck wasn’t for Crowder so much of the formerly standing SJW who’s now vacuumed sealed. Buy him at your local deli.

Watch the video, strong language warning:

No wonder leftists don’t want conservatives to speak on college campuses.


Children of Refugees Are Getting More Benefits THAN POOR AMERICAN KIDS (VIDEO)

Children of refugees

Liberals in Washington DC care so much about the children of refugees that they now receive more government benefits than poor American children.

We are an extremely generous nation but this is simply asinine.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Report: Children of refugees get more federal benefits than poor U.S. kids

America loves kids, but Uncle Sam has a favorite: children of refugees.

Among recipients of food stamps, welfare cash and Social Security payments, refugee children receive more in taxpayer-funded aid than children of citizens, according to a new report on federal spending from the pro-immigration Migration Policy Institute.

For example, 30 percent of refugee children live in households that received food stamps from 2009-13. Among American children, the number was 27 percent, said the report titled, “Young Children of Refugees in the United States: Integration Successes and Challenges.”

Some 8 percent received cash welfare, compared with 6 percent of U.S. citizen households. And 5 percent of children of refugees were part of Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program, compared with 4 percent of U.S. children.

Here’s a related video report from FOX News:

If you were having trouble feeding your own children, would you give more food and money to the children of other people? None of this makes sense.


SHOCKER: Hillary’s Likely VP Pick Tom Perez OPPOSES FREE SPEECH

Tom Perez PT

One person rumored to be on Hillary Clinton’s short list for vice president is labor secretary Tom Perez. That should raise red flags for Americans who value freedom of speech.

Robert Spencer writes at PJ Media:

You Need to Know About Tom Perez: Likely Hillary VP Opposes First Amendment

Americans who value freedom should find the prospects of a Clinton and a Perez presidency equally chilling. Clinton and Perez have a shared distaste for freedom of speech: Hillary’s implicit but unmistakable opposition has been abundantly documented, whereas Perez’s distaste for the First Amendment seems even starker. In July 2012, Perez — then the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, was asked by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ):

Will you tell us here today that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?

Perez could have simply answered yes, and maybe even cited the First Amendment. Instead, Perez refused to answer the question directly. Franks persisted, ultimately asking it four times.

Perez at one point responded that it was a “hard question.” He simply refused to affirm that the Obama Justice Department would not attempt to criminalize criticism of Islam.

As it turned out, the DOJ didn’t need to — due to Hillary Clinton’s advice. Clinton called for Americans to embrace “old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming, so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.”

The mainstream media now marches in lockstep on this issue. Most Americans are too cowed to speak out against the advancing jihad and the accommodation of Sharia principles that are inimical to American freedoms, as they are afraid of being branded as “racists,” “bigots,” and “Islamophobes.” A Clinton-inspired culture of “peer pressure and shaming” is working beautifully to intimidate Americans. Many simply have adopted her values, now believing it’s morally unacceptable to oppose jihad terror and to speak honestly about its ideological wellsprings.

President Hillary Clinton — or President Thomas Perez — would only continue this trend, working to restrict the freedom of speech even further.

Just one more reason to get behind Trump.



Bernie Math

Has a Bernie Sanders supporter ever explained to you why he’s actually winning no matter what happens? The folks at College Humor have created a funny new video which explains it all.

Even the liberal Huffington Post found it funny:

CollegeHumor Explains Why Bernie Sanders Is Actually Winning

“Bernie Math” isn’t like other math. In Bernie Math, super delegates don’t count (unless they’re on his side), momentum is more important than addition, and everyone I know personally is voting for Bernie so it’s safe to assume that he’s getting more votes.

CollegeHumor breaks down the electoral process of wanting a candidate to win so badly even though it’s extremely unlikely.

Watch the video:

Perhaps American colleges should have more course requirements in basic math.


Disgraced Ex-Mizzou Prof Claims She Was Fired FOR BEING A WHITE WOMAN

Melissa Click PT

Melissa Click is he former University of Missouri professor who famously called for some muscle to help her oust a student journalist from the campus protests of last fall.

She was ultimately fired but she’s now claiming it was because she’s a white woman.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reported:

Being Melissa Click

L ast fall, as Melissa Click yelled and pointed her way into infamy, she quickly became a caricature of a radical faculty member who represented everything conservative lawmakers and pundits hate about academe, right down to her research on Twilight.

But while the video of her screaming at a student went viral, turning her into the Melissa Click, the confrontation on a quad during a protest here last year really wasn’t that remarkable, in her mind. The assistant professor of communication at the University of Missouri was just doing what other professors and administrators were doing there, too, she says. So why did she lose her job?

She has one idea. Under pressure from state legislators, she says, Missouri’s Board of Curators fired her to send a message that the university and the state wouldn’t tolerate black people standing up to white people. “This is all about racial politics,” she says. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

Ms. Click has avoided the campus since she was fired in February, when she began moving out of her office in the dark so she wouldn’t run into anyone.

Returning this month to the site of her fateful confrontation with the student, she is skittish. Who will spot her? Someone always does. She eyes a family with a stroller and steels herself.

Controversy has overwhelmed Ms. Click since that day last fall, when the student journalist recorded her frantically calling for “muscle” to stop him from filming a campus protest.

See everyone?

She’s the real victim in all this.

Are You Ready For The Anthony Weiner MOVIE?

Anthony Weiner movie

A new documentary film about disgraced New York Democrat Anthony Weiner is coming out soon and it looks pretty crazy. In case you’ve forgotten, Weiner resigned from congress over a scandal involving… his weiner.

Mediaite reports:

‘I Don’t Quit’: The Trailer for the Bonkers Anthony Weiner Documentary Is Here

Remember Anthony Weiner? Well, there was a documentary crew following his attempted return to New York politics a few years ago, and today we got to see the trailer of the final result.

And boy, this looks like it’s going to be insane.

The documentary chronicles the behind-the-scenes work undertaken by Weiner and his campaign during that mayoral race and how they were trying to overcome penis-gate.

Watch the trailer below:

Reminder: Weiner is married to Hillary aide Huma Abedin. If Hillary wins in November, this guy will be hanging around the White House… with Bill Clinton.

What could go wrong?


SURPRISE! John Kerry and His Wife Have Millions IN OFFSHORE TAX HAVENS

John Kerry PT

Remember the 2012 election when the left accused Mitt Romney of being a greedy non-taxpayer who kept wealth in offshore tax havens?

Remember all the times Bernie Sanders has accused evil millionaires and billionaires of doing it?

Will those people condemn Democrat John Kerry now?

The Daily Caller reports:

EXCLUSIVE: Kerry, Heinz Family Have Millions Invested In Offshore Tax Havens

Secretary of State John Kerry and his wife Teresa Heinz have invested millions of U.S. dollars through family trusts in at least 11 offshore tax havens, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

The revelation comes on the heels of the release of the Panama Papers, a treasure trove of 11.5 million legal and financial records documenting how some of the world’s richest and most powerful people have used offshore bank accounts to conceal their wealth and avoid taxes.

Since the release of the papers, no American politician has been identified as using the secretive offshore accounts.

But a DCNF investigation has confirmed that the former Massachusetts Democratic senator and his billionaire wife, using an elaborate set of Heinz family trusts, have invested “more than $1 million” each into 11 separate offshore accounts — mainly hedge funds in the Cayman Islands.

It must be nice to be a Democrat.

You can get away with all kinds of things that are bad when Republicans do them.
