Perpetually offended: Hobby Lobby cotton décor deemed “racist”

Hobby Lobby’s offensive décor/Facebook photo

You do know that the fall season is approaching and people like to decorate with homey décor. Apparently anything related to the material “cotton” in its raw form is now raaaaaaaaacist and offensive. Some people need to get a new hobby.

From Yahoo: Crafts store Hobby Lobby is taking serious heat for a store display that one woman is calling “racist.”

On Thursday, Facebook user Daniell Rider posted a photo to Hobby Lobby’s Facebook page, of a vase of cotton flowers displayed in a Texas store. She captioned it, “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative about raw cotton… A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘décor.’”

The $29.99 stems (marked down to $15 on the company website) was shared more than 15K times and earned 169K comments, an overwhelming majority of which ridiculed Rider for being “too sensitive” and a few that defended her stance.

“LOL likely written by someone wearing a cotton T-shirt and cotton jeans and cotton underwear,” wrote one Facebook user. “Must not of thought that one through,” wrote someone else.

“Boycott Hobby Lobby,” wrote another.

“This is crazy. Cotton is a fact of life,” added one. “People still pick it. That happened 150 years ago. Slaves also picked tobacco, harvested rice and many other things. We can’t just get rid of them. Well Lowe’s sells chains and rope. You think they should get rid of that too?

Hobby Lobby did not return Yahoo Lifestyle’s request for comment; however, cotton has been igniting backlash recently.

On Friday, Randy Lowry, the president of Lipscomb University in Nashville, sent an apology letter to African-American students who recently visited his home to discuss university life, some of whom objected to cotton-stalk centerpieces at the president’s home (although it’s unknown whether they were the same that were sold at Hobby Lobby).

“The content of the centerpieces was offensive, and I could have handled the situation with more sensitivity,” Lowry wrote. “I sincerely apologize for the discomfort, anger or disappointment we caused and solicit your forgiveness.”

Woman screams at veteran with PTSD service dog

We seem to have an epidemic of women going berserk in public places:

  • Two days ago, I did a post on an American woman in Denmark verbally assaulting a Danish man for wearing a MAGA hat.
  • A day ago, I did a post on a woman bathing herself in the produce section of a supermarket.

Here’s another woman going apesh*t — a black woman screams and yells obscenities at a veteran for bringing his service dog into a restaurant, although the dog’s coat is clearly labeled “PTSD Service Dog”.

Service dogs are legally permitted in restaurants, but the screaming woman claims the veteran is not allowed to bring his dog inside. Her cucked boyfriend stands next to her, looking embarrassed.

A waitress is heard saying, “He’s allowed because he fought for our country.” The screaming woman then claims her husband was also a serviceman who died abroad, and continues screaming “It’s nasty to me! It’s fucking disgusting! There should be a separate section for the fucking animals!” and calling other diners names.

The vet and the staff at the restaurant try to calm the woman down and get her to leave, but she refuses. Eventually, she begins heading to the door, but turns back and ramps things up again, screaming “It’s my opinion, none of y’all are gonna change it! It’s disgusting, it’s gross!”.

Notice that throughout the woman’s screaming tirade, the service dog remained calm and well-behaved, thereby demonstrating who the real “animal” was that should be barred from that restaurant.

Woman bathes in produce section of supermarket

Are Americans getting crazier by the day?

This video was taken on September 3, 2017 in a Kroger supermarket in Stone Mountain, GA. The description on the video’s YouTube page says:

“I just witnessed a woman slap two random people in store for no apparent reason. When approached by the Loss Prevention department, she immediately started to scream “rape and abuse.” When the police were called, she ran to jump in the fresh produce and began to bathe.”

Racist much? HBO actress says at Emmys that she’s “rooting for everybody black”

Issa Rae is an actress, writer and director. She created the HBO show Insecure. Never heard of her nor her show. Apparently she’s popular within the Hollyweird community.

Now she’s popular for being racist, too.

Imagine the outcry if a white person said they were rooting for white people.  But she’ll face no consequences. Liberals love their double standards.

Strict gun control in Chiraq: One person shot every 2 hours and 18 minutes

chicago2

Below are the shooting numbers for this past weekend. Expect the final tally to go up by Monday morning. It always goes up.

From MyFoxChicago: Nine people have been shot dead and at least 27 others wounded in Chicago since Friday evening.

Four of the murder victims were shot on Friday night in the Brighton Park neighborhood on Chicago’s Southwest Side. In that attack, three men and one woman were shot dead in a car. The woman was pregnant. Chicago police said that shooting was gang related and that three of the victims were gang members.

The website “HeyJackass.com,” which tracks violence in Chicago, said that on average, a person is shot about every 2 hours and 18 minutes in the city. On average, two people are murdered every day.

So far this year, more than 500 people have been murdered in Chicago. The vast majority of the killers used a gun.

Baylor U. professor & M.D. Carol Baker: ‘Let’s just get rid of all the whites in the United States’

On May 9, 2016, in Atlanta, Georgia, the National Meningitis Association (www.nmaus.org) hosted a panel discussion, “Achieving Childhood Vaccine Success in the U.S.,” before its “Give Kids a Shot” Gala. The panel addressed a range of issues including parents who opt out of childhood vaccine requirements, physicians who stray from the recommended vaccine schedule, and the role of the media in creating or removing barriers to vaccination.

The panelists were (from left to right):

  • Paul Lee, M.D., Director of the International Adoption Program and Pediatric Travel Center at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, New York (moderator).
  • Carol J. Baker, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, Molecular Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.
  • Dorit Rubinstein Reiss, PhD., Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley’s Hastings College of Law. Reiss favors legal liabilities for parents who opt for non-vaccination, and is noted for her support of California Senate Bill 277, which reduced exemptions to vaccination requirements for enrollment in California schools and daycare centers.
  • Arthur Caplan, PhD., Professor of Medical Ethics at NYU Langone Medical Center.
  • William Schaffner, M.D., Professor of Preventive Medicine and Infectious Diseases, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.
  • Alison Singer, President of Autism Science Foundation.
  • Paul Offit, M.D., Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Beginning at the 53:35 mark in the video below, Dr. and Professor Carol J. Baker speaks, with surprising inarticulateness and incoherence for a professor who should be used to public speaking — sentences and thoughts begin, then trail off to something else entirely. (Dorit Rubinstein Reiss is an even worse speaker — furtive, incoherent, inarticulate — and she’s a full professor of law at UC Berkeley!) At the 53:58 mark, Dr. Baker says:

“The fight, the battle is being fought — one family, one physician, one health center. That’s why we’re doing as well as we are.

We’re talking about the minority [of vaccine refusers], and strategies against the minority. So I have the solution: Every study published in the last five years, you look at vaccine refusers, I’m not talking about people we can talk them into coming to terms, but refusers. (54:28 mark) Let’s just get rid of all the whites in the United States, because Houston is the most diverse city in the entire United States. There are seven Asian languages spoken in that city. I’ve been in the [racial] minority for more than 20 years in the city of Houston. The majority of them are what we all ‘Hispanics’ — it’s not a race or an ethnicity, it’s a political designation. A lot of them are from Central or South America, Mexico. Guess who wants to get vaccinated the most in Houston? Immigrants! It is the ‘well educated’ — in terms of pieces of paper and the paper on the wall — [who are the vaccine refusers], people that have been here for a long time, and it’s very unfortunate and.

But I think we need not lose the big picture. The big picture is there are physicians out there — family practitioners, pediatricians, internists — talking one on one with either the older child — I don’t know when a child stops being a child. For me, I was 30, I wrote my mother and said ‘Hey, I’m a grown-up’. They’d already given me an M.D. degree by then, so it’s a good thing I was grown up.

I think that we need to do things as an articulate media-trained group to encourage that conversation, and encourage our health care system to value what vaccines do. Give people enough time to talk to individual families. Most hesitant people, it’s absolutely right, someone said it earlier, some families are having ‘pre-natal visits’. That’s the time to talk about vaccines. This war is fought one on one, with individual families. We need to support those policies that give health care providers, nurses, I mean nurses are really really important, they’re the ones who are probably giving the shots, and if they’re not on board with accepting vaccines, then do you think they’re gonna be supportive of you recommending a vaccine? You have to have your whole [health care] practice situation on board.”

“Let’s just get rid of the whites in the United States” – Carol J. Baker, M.D. & Professor.

But not one person — on the panel or in the audience — challenged or asked Dr. Baker what she meant by that.

Instead, beginning at the 1:03:06 mark, a fat blonde woman in salmon pink, who identifies herself as a public health nurse in New Jersey who audits immunization and works with pediatrics, suggests that medical insurance companies deny coverage for children whose parents refuse vaccines. The woman says:

“My question is legally, would it be possible to go to the insurance companies that cover vaccines, if a parent refuses to have vaccines, would they be willing to not cover the medical care for a child.”

At some time, while we were sleeping, the United States was taken over by insane tyrants.
