US campus libs think they're promoting 'diversity' by holding a panel on 'black sex' for black students only. Seriously!

no entry
Tulane University in New Orleans held a "sex-positive" week filled with virtue-signaling, borefest events for students, the strangest of which was a talk on "black sex" that was race exclusive.

Billed as a "diverse week of comprehensive, queer-inclusive, culturally-specific, sex-positive sexual health events and conversations," Tulane's 'sex week' contained some understandable topics like one on safe sex, another on "reconnecting with your sexuality after trauma," as well as some predictably woke happenings to prove the school's promise of "diversity." One panel, however, flew in the face of that "diversity."

'Let's Talk About Black Sex, Baby!' was held Thursday evening - for "black students only."


On its webpage, organizers invited students to "join New Horizons for a real-talk, relaxing evening and safe space to talk about Black sexuality."

"The event will feature an interactive panel of students and staff discussing the unique experiences Black femme-identifying and nonbinary people face on campus," they wrote.

School district officials in Texas removed a lesson meant to teach students the rules of "chivalry" after parents expressed their outrage over the rules imposed on girls.

The assignment was given to students of a Shallowater ISD high school classroom near Lubbock.

The story went viral when a copy of the lesson was posted on Twitter on Wednesday.


The lesson asked the ladies of the class to "demonstrate to the school how the code of chivalry and standards set in the medieval concept of courtly love carries over into the modern day."

MSNBC host Joy Reid claimed Texas was reopening because white people want black people back 'making them steaks'
MSNBC host Joy Reid sparked outrage this week when she tweeted that conservatives would trade tax cuts to use the n-word.

Reid's comments have been slammed for apparent hypocrisy after stirring up previous homophobic comments the embattled news host and political commentator has made.

'I'll say it again: people on the right would trade all the tax cuts for the ability to openly say the n-word like in 'the good old days',' Reid tweeted.

'To them, not being able to be openly racist and discriminatory without consequence is oppression. Trump is the avatar for this 'freedom'.'

Cuomo advisers convinced DOH to omit certain nursing home COVID deaths from official tally

Top advisers to Gov. Andrew Cuomo successfully pushed state health officials to omit from a public report the number of nursing home residents who died in hospitals from COVID-19, it was revealed on Thursday night.

Instead, the July state Health Department report listed only the nursing home residents who died from the virus at their facilities, far undercounting the total death toll of the state's most vulnerable population, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

The revelation further confirms the Cuomo administration possessed a more complete accounting of the COVID-nursing death count during the summer, but waited eight more months to cough up the true totals after repeatedly stonewalling lawmakers and the media, losing a lawsuit and being subjected to a damning state attorney general report.

Comment: It seems to be a confluence of problems for the governor as 'Cuomosexuality' turns into 'Cuomophobia' for female employees:
Numerous former staffers for Andrew Cuomo have described the toxic and cult-like work environment they worked under amidst the governor's multiple worsening scandals, including three accusations of sexual harassment.

"There's no right or wrong way. It's the Cuomo way," one staffer told the Gothamist about a warning she received when interviewing for a job in the Cuomo administration. "He wants people who are literally going to fall on the sword for him, and they all will."

Another described being told to wear stiletto heels because she was blonde and the governor "likes blondes" in stiletto heels. Her desk was put in within the governor's eyeline the moment she was hired, she said.

"I knew by looking cute, and not being obstinate or opinionated, and doing what I was told and looking polished... That is the only way I would survive there," the woman said. She remained anonymous like others who spoke to the Gothamist, citing fear of blowback from the governor, who has been accused in the past of professionally retaliating against those who publicly speak out against him.

Other staffers described an around-the-clock work schedule that blurred professional and personal lines, as well as a demanding boss who would lash out and scream at people under him for anything from the temperature in the room not being to his liking to having shoes that aren't "nice and shiny."

One former staffer described the environment as a "cult," saying they have been talking to others who worked in the administration since allegations against Cuomo broke. The administration "[pushed] you until you wanted to be there" with some comparing it to an abusive relationship.

Cuomo is facing a storm of growing controversies. Three women have come forward, including two former aides, to accuse him of sexual harassment, including unwanted touching and kissing. He has also been accused of downplaying and covering up Covid-19 deaths in nursing homes in his state for political purposes.

The governor apologized this week for making women "uncomfortable" in the past, but denied any unwanted touching. On nursing homes, he has claimed his administration simply did not keep up with requests for information.

Despite numerous calls for him to resign, Cuomo has said he will remain in place, and he appears to still have the support of many in his party while an investigation takes place.

While three women have already come forward, New York State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said on Thursday that Cuomo would only lose her support if one more did.

"Any further people coming forward, I think it would be time to resign," she told Capitol Tonight, adding any kind of harassment in the workplace is "out of bounds."

Mississippi's ban on trans athletes competing in sports is a step in the right direction to stop kids' gender being weaponized

The state is poised to pass legislation barring transgender athletes from competing on women's high school and college sports teams, outraging some and allowing others to breathe a sigh of relief, but the debate is far from over.

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves pledged on Thursday that he would sign the legislation which passed the state Senate last month and was approved by the House earlier this week. In a recent Facebook post, he mentioned his two daughters' dedication to team sports, suggesting they were being unfairly disadvantaged thanks to "the push for kids to adopt transgenderism."

The governor skewered Biden's recent executive order barring women's shelters, prisons, and other gender-defined institutions from ejecting men, arguing - as many others have - that pitting transgender athletes against biological females constitutes a "radical social experiment" and that young women athletes are being placed at an unfair disadvantage.

While the extremely vocal transgender lobby reliably goes to bat for young trans people who feel they're being discriminated against, advocates for female-born athletes who just want to play their sport without having to face much bigger, stronger athletes who have all the advantages of having gone through male puberty are few and far between. Worse, Biden's executive order deprives schools that continue to divide student sports by biological sex of public funding.

Emboldened by Trump and Netanyahu, Jewish settler terrorism is spiking

Israeli soldiers and settlers attack Palestinian protesters in the Occupied West Bank.
On the night of Jan. 28, Alaa Sawafteh was driving back with his family to Tubas from Ramallah in the occupied West Bank when his car was attacked by around 30 Israeli settlers.

The Israelis, from the nearby settlement of Beit El, smashed the car windows, opened the doors, and struck his three-year-old son's face with a rock, leaving him with a scar on his forehead. Sawafteh's family was supposed to be celebrating his son's birthday, but instead the family spent the night in the hospital.

Settler violence is a daily reality for Palestinians living in the West Bank, but in recent months the attacks have increased in severity and frequency. In 2020, the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OCHA) recorded 772 incidents of settler violence. So far, in 2021, the OCHA has reported 152 acts of settler violence.

Comment: The Israelis miss neither a trick nor opportunity to provoke and punish Palestinians:

Aqsa Mosque
The Israeli occupation police on Tuesday morning kidnaped an Islamic Awqaf employee and prevented once again renovation works inside the Aqsa Mosque's Dome of the Rock prayer building.

The police threatened to arrest the workers and banish them from the Mosque if they continued their work at the Islamic holy site. In recent months, the Israeli police claimed that such works needed Israeli permits.

Jordan, at the time, condemned such Israeli interference in the affairs of the Islamic holy site in Jerusalem. Its foreign affairs ministry described the police's practice as an infringement on the jurisdiction of the Jordan-run Administration of the Jerusalem Awqaf and Aqsa Mosque Affairs.

Antrim County clerk and material witness, Sheryl Guy, DISMISSES election fraud case...court overrules, reinstates case

Sheryl Guy Antrim County MI vote fraud

Sheryl Guy, County Clerk for Antrim County, MI
On November 23, 2020, attorney Matthew DePerno of DePerno Law filed a lawsuit on behalf of Central Lake resident William Bailey against Antrim County, MI. In addition to thousands of votes that were flipped from President Trump to Democrat candidate Joe Biden in Antrim County, MI, in the November election, Bailey was concerned about ballots that were re-run through the Dominion tabulator machine after a 262-262 tie on a vote a ballot initiative that would allow a marijuana establishment to be located within the Village of Central Lake.

Michigan's radical Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson blamed the incredible vote switch from President Trump to Biden, as well as additional unexplainable errors on Antrim County County Clerk Sheryl Guy, saying it was simply a "clerical" error.

Macron said Covid-19 jabs would be optional... so an EU vaccine passport should be a reason for France to leave the EU

It's unacceptable that the EU is pushing big brother authoritarianism on its member states via vaccine passports. French President Emmanuel Macron should stay true to his word and take a stand against this nanny statism.

After all, Macron couldn't have been more clear when he said in a national address last November that Covid-19 vaccines would not be mandatory. And that's exactly as it should be.

No one should have the right to dictate what substances you inject into your body - and especially not the state. The rights of the collective end where the rights of the individual begin, and that's precisely with one's own physical being. If someone is worried about catching Covid-19, then they have every right to get vaccinated in the interests of self-protection, but no one should have any ability to impose it on anyone else.

Canadian Tire staff attack and subdue man for not wearing a mask

Canadian Tire
Staff at a Canadian Tire store wrestled to the floor and handcuffed a man who refused to wear a mask last week, highlighting again the apparent use of excessive force by non-governmental actors to impose mandatory mask mandates in Canada.

One video of the ordeal was posted on Twitter by a user named Dan Dicks. The clip shows the maskless man being apprehended by five Canadian Tire staff in Burnaby. They struggled to subdue the man for his apparent non-compliance with mask mandates inside the store.

"You're f--king pushing me ... Get your hands off of me, get your f--king hands off of me," the man can be heard shouting in the video, while store staff tried to subdue him.
