stealth jihad in the form of an eyesore
avoid talking to these spoiled sheltered, privileged brats if they insist others use “gender neutral” pronouns when addressing them.
colleges and universities delaying adulthood in the name of social justice. who would employ these perpetual children?
OAKLAND, Calif. — The weekly meetings of Mouthing Off!, a group for students at Mills College in Oakland, Calif., who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, always start the same way. Members take turns going around the room saying their names and the personal pronouns they want others to use when referring to them — she, he or something else.
It’s an exercise that might seem superfluous given that Mills, a small and leafy liberal arts school historically referred to as the Vassar of the West, only admits women as undergraduates. Yet increasingly, the “shes” and “hers” that dominate the introductions are keeping third-person company with “they,” ‘’ze” and other neutral alternatives meant to convey a more generous notion of gender.

If you thought government sponsored segregation was a thing of the past, look no further than Tukwilla, Washington.
Over the past few weeks, the gender-exclusive swimming hours at Tuckwilla’s public pool has ignited a heated debate about whether or not special accommodations should be made for certain groups of people.
Every Sunday afternoon the city pool closes its doors to men, and allows women, many of whom do not want swim in front of men for religious reasons, to swim in private for a 90-minute time slot.
Katy Perry was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel’s show Monday night and made some controversial statements.
It started it out pretty innocently.
“I am obsessed with Japanese people,” Perry said. “I love everything about them and they are so wonderful as human beings.”
But then she took it up a notch.
“I’m so obsessed I want to skin you and wear you like Versace,” the pop star said referring to a Japanese person she said she was obsessed with.
The pop singer was obviously joking when she said she wanted to skin Japanese people but just minutes earlier she was talking about how many of her fans at concerts are so young they have to be escorted by their parents which makes her joke all the more controversial.
Viewers of the American Music Awards got a real treat. A real racist treat.
During the awards show, pop star Katy Perry performed her hit single, “Unconditionally,” in yellowface. Donning a chest-baring kimono, black shellacked hair, and pouty red lipstick, Perry turned her performance into a caricature of Japanese people and icons — complete with parasol twirling, backlit shoji screens, and a bevvy of geisha backup dancers.
sharia continues to creep.

Radio host Tariq Elite Nasheed exposes the recent “Knockout Game” propaganda that has been circulating.
The videos of these so-called “knock out games” are simply random,non-connected,isolated assault videos. These videos ARE NOT part of a nationwide “Black” crime conspiracy like it is being reported.The majority of Black people are AGAINST these assaults.

what will happen if a muslim female police officer wearing a hijab arresting a muslim male?
David Menzies, Guest Columnist
Whether it’s worn by a police officer, hockey player, usher, or soldier, surely the ostensible reason for donning a uniform is to have, well, uniformity.
But things are changing in regard to uniforms at that ever-sensitive “service” formerly known as the Toronto police force.
Indeed, the police have announced they’re going to accommodate Muslim policewomen who want to wear the hijab on duty.
Some might hail such a move as another shining example of “reasonable accommodation”; others — count me among them — look upon this directive as another assault against Canadian traditions.
Yet again, a public institution appears to be bowing to the tyranny of political correctness — bending over backwards to accommodate certain individuals, some of whom are quite unaccommodating of western values.
The question arises: What’s driving this directive? Why is it important for the police to have hijab-wearing policewomen in the first place?
Contrary to widespread popular belief, the Qur’an doesn’t mandate Muslim women to wear the hijab.
In this regard, the apparel accommodation isn’t the same as allowing a Sikh to wear a turban.
(I’d also argue there’s an historical reason for permitting Sikhs to wear turbans, given that Sikh military brigades have long been an integral part of the British Empire.) If anything, the hijab is a political statement and a symbol of fundamentalism.
In some cases, a woman wearing such a headscarf is being pressured by her family to do so (case in point, the dearly departed Aqsa Parvez.) Either way, seeing such a garment as part of a police uniform is odd. Imagine if a citizen was to call the cops regarding a suspected honour killing in the neighbourhood and the policewoman who responds is decked out in a hijab? Would this not be unsettling?
Also, the police have surely put themselves in a sticky situation regarding haberdashery accommodation.
For example, if a female police officer demands that she be allowed to wear a niqab or a burqa, how could such a request possibly be denied, given the precedent that’s been set with the hijab?
Indeed, just how far do we take reasonable accommodation in the police department?
Do Muslim police officers reserve the right not to work with the Canine Unit, given that many Muslims consider dogs “unclean”?
Will ham sandwiches be banned from police stations due to dietary restrictions?
As well, is there not a profound double-standard at play here?
For example, here’s a scenario I’d find most amusing to observe: Imagine “Constable Duncan MacDonald,” who is of Scottish heritage, waltzes into the station tomorrow decked out in a ceremonial kilt, complete with sporran. How many nanoseconds would tick by before P.C. MacDonald is hauled before a supervisor and sternly disciplined?
Something is indeed rotten these days when it comes to sensitivity issues.
Consider the plight of Tarek Fatah. This moderate Muslim author has been subjected to written death threats from radical Muslims, yet the police have decided not to lay charges.
And, full disclosure: Last summer at Yonge Dundas Square, your correspondent was punched in the face by a hijab-wearing woman who objected to me taking pictures. Even though the assault was photographed and eye-witnessed, police declined to lay charges.
What’s wrong with this picture?
visit the youtube video in question and flag that shit down, in the comments that racist piece of shit claim they have Asian clients. similar to the racist excuse of “I have black friends” nonsense. time to fight against hollywood racist fans.
update: the piece of shit at DTV disabled the comments while hypocritically whining about the 1st amendment in the “show more” section. flag that censor happy channel down!
A head teacher has been forced to apologise after threatening to punish children for racism if they missed a religious awareness workshop.
Parents of children at Littleton Green Community School in Cannock were angered by a letter sent from the school informing them that a ‘racial discrimination note’ would be attached to their child’s education record if they did not attend a workshop about Islam as part of the children’s “cultural education”.
Donna Ward, whose daughter attends the school, told the Express & Star: “It’s not our religion. We should have a right to stop our children going.”
Defending the decision, the school’s headteacher, Lynn Small, said that exposing the pupils to other faiths was part of the school’s statutory duty. She said: “We are a mainly Christian school, but we have to cover at least one other religion as part of the national curriculum.”
After an intervention from the local authority the school has since written to parents to apologise for “inaccuracies” in the previous correspondence. In the letter, the school’s head teacher asked parents to “on reflection disregard a section from the earlier letter”.
Rayan Dhamuke, 12, doesn’t get to swim a lot, unlike her brothers. During the past summer, she had to visit the pool at 5 a.m. so that she would have the privacy she needed to enjoy the water while still adhering to her family’s cultural and religious beliefs.
To better accommodate girls like Dhamuke, the downtown St. Paul YMCA, in partnership with the St. Paul Police Department, has started a swim group for Somali-American girls. The group, which began in October, is serving as an outlet for girls ages 5 to 17 to learn the basics of swimming..
One evening last week, the din of girls’ laughter and splashes filled the windowless, humid pool room of the St. Paul downtown YMCA.
“Anybody want to try jumping in one more time?” asked an instructor
“Me! Me! Me!” shouted a chorus of eager beginners, who wore mostly shirts and pants with their heads uncovered.
The group of about 25 girls, who were quiet and reserved earlier in the evening, seemed to come alive while in the water. With each jump, kick and splash, their confidence appeared to grow.
It’s a “night-and-day difference” from the first week when girls hesitated, not wanting to jump in and clinging to the walls of the pool, too afraid to let go, said Morgan Johnson, director of healthy living at the downtown YMCA. Now, they dive in. Even one of the mothers watching Tuesday’s lessons decided to jump in and go for a swim.
“We’ve moved kids from being afraid of the water to really being able to tread water,” said Mary Britts, executive director for the downtown YMCA.
Dhamuke said she enjoys the group because she gets to spend time with her friends. “It’s not that often when you get to swim,” she said.
Special considerations have to be made to address modesty concerns so that the Muslim girls can swim and not reveal too much of themselves.
During the hourlong swim practice, all other swimmers are cleared out of the pool. The men’s locker room is locked. Female life guards are brought in. The pool, which is on the building’s third floor, has no windows so they don’t have to worry about prying eyes from outside.
St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith had discussions with Britts to let the Y know that, through the department’s connections with the Somali-American community, they had learned that such a group was needed.
“I think this is just a great opportunity for them to learn basic skills that we take for granted,” said Sgt. Jennifer O’Donnell, who has worked with the Somali community regularly during her time with the department.
“We have to have privacy,” said Ubah Ali, Dhamuke’s mother.
For years, Ali said she has been trying to find a place where her daughter could swim, but nothing seemed to work. Not knowing how to swim is a safety risk, especially in the state of 10,000 lakes, Ali said.
Hani Hussein, who volunteers at the Al-Ihsan Islamic Center in St. Paul, said she looked into reserving public pools for girls, but it was too expensive.
“I really wanted the girls to come swim to learn not only how to swim but to build their confidence,” Hussein said.
Other metro YMCAs have water safety programs, but they don’t specifically cater to the needs of Somali girls. However, Britts recalled that a YMCA in north Minneapolis did have a Somali girls swim group about a decade ago.
Funding for the group comes from two metrowide water safety grants from Hawkins Inc. and Abbey’s Hope Charitable Foundation. The police department helps provide transportation for the girls to the YMCA.
