Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams tells new New Yorkers ‘go back to Iowa’

That “liberal tolerance” on display.

Eric Adams

From NY Post: He has a dream — of leading a New York City that is home to far fewer Midwesterners.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams — the leading fundraiser in the 2021 mayoral race — used Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday to deliver an inflammatory broadside against newcomers from the nation’s heartland.

“Go back to Iowa, you go back to Ohio,” he said during a speech in Harlem. New York City belongs to the people that was here and made New York City what it is.”

Speaking at the National Action Network’s “King Day Celebration,” hosted by founder the Rev. Al Sharpton, Adams implicitly played the race card as he denounced gentrification by singling out two states, Iowa and Ohio, that are 91 and 82 percent white, respectively.

Adams also rattled off a litany of social crises — including drug abuse and gun violence — that he said were ignored when they only affected the nation’s “black and brown community.”

He then declared himself “unapologetic” as he invoked the slain civil-rights icon, saying that “if you know the spirit and anything about Dr. King, he did not allow others to be comfortable while everyone else was living in horrific conditions.”

Adams — who raked in $437,099 in political contributions during the past six months, with major donations from the real-estate industry — railed against what he called the “displacement of the people who made this city.”

“You were here before Starbucks,” he told a crowd of about 300 who greeted his remarks with cheers and applause. “You were here before others came and decided they wanted to be part of this city.”

Adams referred to the transplants as “folks who [are] not only hijacking your apartments and displacing your living arrangements, they displace your conversation and say the things that are important to you are no longer important. And they decide what’s important and what is not important.”

In Bushwick, caterer Jenna Hockman, 28, a lifelong Brooklynite, said Adams was “blaming individuals instead of the system that enables developers to build these high rises that are pricing people out.”

“I am concerned about placing responsibility on the individuals that are moving to these neighborhoods and not the people who are making money from these individuals moving there,” she said.

The Republican leader of Ohio’s Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, said Adams “took Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of unity and made it a divisive message.”

Hollyweird hypocrite Debra Messing slams NBC for their “disgusting behavior”

TDS-infected Debra Messing

It’s not NBC’s disgusting attempt to protect predator and Clinton buddy Weinstein that has Debra so upset. This is something much more grievous.

There’s apparently some majorly important drama going on with NBC and their firing of a woman (Gabrielle Union) who claims it was due to racism.

Gabrielle complained about a white male performer who dressed up as Beyonce and changed the color of his skin. This is apparently “racially insensitive.”

Men dressing up as women in drag and pretending to live their lives as women is A-OK just as long as they don’t dare do anything to their skin color. Hey, I don’t make up the progressive rules.

TDS-infected actress Debra Messing (who worked for NBC for on her show Will & Grace from 1998 to 2006) is now getting in on the drama to call out racism and sexism, of course.

People Magazine reports that Messing supported a tweet from another fellow Hollyweird actress about the treatment of Gabrielle Union:

“…the Will and Grace star criticized the network in a group of scathing tweets.

“Thank you for this @EllenPompeo,” Messing, 51, wrote. “This is disgusting behavior from a network that has been my professional home for decades. Yes, women become ‘difficult,’ when their insistence on a respectful and professional working environment, is ignored.”

“Addressing a hostile work environment is inconvenient when there is a huge money making machine that is involved. It is cowardice, greed, and protection of the status quo revealed. Being ‘hands off,’ is inexcusable and reflects a laissez faire attitude toward systemic racism and sexism,” she continued, tagging Union.”

Read about all the drama and virtue signaling here.

Spare me your faux indignation about the “disgusting behavior” from the NBC network.

Don’t tell me you’ve lived under a rock during Ronan Farrow’s story about your “professional home” killing the Weinstein story during the 2016 election while YOUR preferred candidate was running for president. Talk about “protection of the status quo.”

Debra Messing with her preferred candidate

Messing claims she was “shocked” by the Weinstein allegations and that she “knew nothing” about them. Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Hollyweird is a small town girl and if we knew, then YOU knew.

Debra Messing worked with director Woody Allen in the 1998 film, “Celebrity.”

I performed many searches for Debra Messing and Woody Allen and found nothing where she criticized the accused pedophile.

Debra Messing (l) kisses up to Woody Allen

Being “hands off” about predators while seeking to maintain that “Celebrity” status and huge NBC-money payout is inexcusable, Debra. But good thing you’re so worried about a man dressing up to perform as Beyoncé.

Typical Hollyweird Hypocrite.

Socialist Seattle council member whines that massive budget isn’t enough to address racism

Socialist Kshama Sawant

This past week the Seattle City Council passed a $6.5 BILLION budget. With a population of approximately 745,000 that equates to a little over $8,700 taxpayer dollars to be spent per citizen.

Ballotpedia cites an April 2015 study which found that the country’s 100 largest cities by population spent an average of $2,605 per citizen in the most recent fiscal year for which reports were available. The average city budget in the largest 100 cities was $2.14 billion. Seattle was one of six cities which spent more per citizen on average than the states in which they are located.

Fast forward to 2019 and Seattle is still on track to break large-city budget records.

Earlier this month three Seattle council members were seeking re-election and they all won. Including socialist Kshama Sawant.

The socialist was the lone dissenting voice in approving the city’s new budget. Her reasoning?

The budget is “not a moral document.”

Apparently $6.5 BILLION doesn’t go far enough in addressing the social needs of the city and the “deep inequality and racism” in Seattle.

Odd how such a liberal and “progressive” city – which has been run by demorats for decades – could still possibly have a problem with inequality and racism.

Anyhow, back to Seattle’s budget.

As an “economist,” socialist Sawant should know a thing or two about financial documents. She says the $6.5 BILLION budget still “fails to meet human needs.”

The socialist is intent on squeezing more money out of taxpayers: “I don’t want us to rest on our laurels, and I hope that when January comes around, we will get back to serious organizing to win taxes on big business, to win rent control, and to make this city affordable and livable for everybody.”

As an “economist,” I wonder how she calculates how much money is necessary to address subjective and unquantifiable budget line items such as racism and inequality?

And what budget line items does she want include to make sure than “human needs” are met? After all, can’t a progressive subjectively make an argument for anything their hearts desire (and that which gets them votes) be proclaimed as a human need?

Seattle progressives DESERVE everything they vote for (homelessness criminals, repeat offenders, etc.) They’ve all failed in economics as they haven’t learned one golden rule:

Seattle transit agency dropping term “red line” because of racist implications

If you are a woke progressive, you can find racism in everything.

Take for example in Seattle: The local transit agency, Sound Transit, has decided to drop the term “red line” for a north-south route. This is because of an association with the racist term “redlining.”

According to Wikipedia, redlining refers to “the systematic denial of various services to residents of specific, often racially associated, neighborhoods or communities, either directly or through the selective raising of prices. While the best known examples of redlining have involved denial of financial services such as banking or insurance, other services such as health care (see also Race and health) or even supermarkets have been denied to residents.”

Apparently Sound Transit heard from a lot of community members who are very upset with the term red line. From their press release:

“As the term Red Line became more visible we heard concerns from members of our community, that this term carries unfortunate associations with the punitive practice by lenders of “redlining.”

Redlining describes the historical practice engaged in by banks to withhold home-loan funds or insurance from neighborhoods deemed to be poor economic risks. These neighborhoods were primarily comprised of racial and ethnic minorities, who were denied the opportunity to build generational wealth through home ownership.

These discriminatory practices caused widespread damage and inequities that have had a lingering impact to this day. In response, we are going to identify a new system for identifying our routes. It’s the right thing to do, and we are grateful for the community members who encouraged us to take this action.

While numerous transit systems around our country have red lines based on the widespread practice of using primary colors to label transit services, at Sound Transit we want to build a system that welcomes everyone. The term Red Line clearly works against this goal.”

Read their whole press release here.

I’m curious as to what color they will name the new line. I’m assuming the following are out due to political correctness: White, yellow and brown (for obvious reasons), blue and grey (associated with depression), and orange (think #OrangeManBad).

No matter what color they end up with, I’m sure some woke progressive – somewhere, somehow – will find a reason to be offended.

Correcting someone’s grammar is now racist

Note: This post was originally published on December 15, 2013, but it was disappeared after WordPress took down this blog, Fellowship of the Minds, on August 15, 2018. Although I have been able to restore most of our posts by retrieving them from our “Draft Posts” folder and republishing them one by one, this post is among a handful that are irretrievable. Fortunately, I was able to find this post on the net because it had been re-blogged on other sites, including FromTheTrenchesWorldReport. I am, therefore, republishing this post today.

Did you know that if a professor — whose job supposedly is to teach — corrects a student’s grammar, he is being raaaaaacist?

Of course, the “someone” who is corrected must be a “person of color” — not just any color, but a person of dark skin color.  

The plain truth is that in today’s America, under the sway of Leftwing Tyranny, criticizing a person of color about ANYTHING is being racist.

That’s what Val Rust, a professor emeritus of education and information studies at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), discovered.

Robby Soave reports for The Daily Caller, Nov. 26, 2013, that members of an UCLA student group, Call 2 Action: Graduate Students of Color, launched a sit-in protest against Professor Rust because he had the temerity to — GASP! – correct the grammar, punctuation and capitalization in “minority” students’ assignments.

According to Inside Higher Education, some 25 students participated in the sit-in, including five of the 10 members of Professor Rust’s class. The protesters wrote this statement to the college:

A hostile campus climate has been the norm for Students of Color in this class throughout the quarter as our epistemological and methodological commitments have been repeatedly questioned by our classmates and our instructor. [The] barrage of questions by white colleagues and the grammar ‘lessons’ by the professor have contributed to a hostile class climate.

As an example of Rust’s egregious racism, Ph.D. student and sit-in organizer Kenjus Watson, said the professor told one student that she should not capitalize the word “indigenous” (as in “indigenous” or native American) in her papers. Watson claimed the correction was “ideologically motivated,” whatever that means.

Rust, who was guest-lecturing in China at the time of the sit-in, sent a letter to his colleagues in the education department, saying he meant no offense to “minorities”: “I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations, and these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate.”

Rust also apologized for making matters worse by not aggressively and proactively taking the side of a “minority” student who was engaged in an argument with a white female student. The minority student told the woman that she had no right to feel oppressed, and Rust did not express agreement either way.

Rust wrote:

Two weeks ago a Student of Color and a white female student got into a big discussion. She wants to use Standpoint Theory [a method of analysis coined by feminist sociologist Dorothy Smith, based on the idea that all knowledge is subjective and based on one’s position in society] in her dissertation, and the Student of Color told her she had no business claiming that she was a member of an oppressed group. She came back saying there are all kinds of oppression. I likely did not handle the situation well, because I chose not to stop the discussion between them, so it went on for quite a while, and the Students of Color apparently interpreted my silence to mean I wasn’t supporting them.

Here’s Professor Rust’s email address: rust@gseis.ucla.edu

Wall Street Journal wades in on Meghan Markle controversy

The toxin that is Meghan Markle (and her thoroughly- and willingly-emasculated husband, Prince Harry) is no longer confined to the British Isles. Even Wall Street Journal is weighing in on the unending controversies she deliberately has fomented.

Gerard Baker is the Editor at Large of The Wall Street Journal. A former Editor-in-Chief of Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal (2014-2018) and former U.S. editor and an assistant editor of the Times of London, Baker covered economics for the BBC and worked as an economist at the Bank of England and Lloyds. He  holds a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Corpus Christi College, Oxford University.

Below is Gerard Baker’s “An American Duchess Takes to the Barricades,” Wall Street Journal, November 1, 2019, which is behind a paywall. Fortunately, The Charlatan Duchess took screenshots of the article.

Meghan and her enabler Prince Harry blame her negative press on racism — the Left’s default catch-all excuse.

But it should be noted that before she snatched the British royal, Markle had never identified as biracial. Instead, her actress bio/resume identifies her as “Caucasian” (white).

Now she wears her half-black racial identity as a badge of honor and wields it as a bludgeon against her critics, including the UK taxpayers whom she no longer fools. Just read the overwhelmingly negative readers’ comments on any article about her and Harry in the Daily Mail, such as here. See also “Brits sign petition to stop taxpayer funding of Meghan Markle & Prince Harry“.

Little known is the fact that Meghan is so proud of her black ancestry that she had cosmetic surgery to shave her bulbous negroid nose. Below are pics of her when she was a student at Immaculate Heart Middle School, a private school for girls in Los Angeles, California.

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., had paid for her private school tuition at the Hollywood Little Red Schoolhouse and Immaculate Heart Middle School. Markle also paid for Meghan’s considerable tuition and expenses at another private institution, Northwestern University.

During a speech at the University of South Pacific in Fiji in October 2019, Meghan said she had paid for her Northwestern University tuition through scholarships, financial aid, and her campus job. That was a lie, one of many from the pathological liar.

In September 2019, Thomas Markle Sr. set the record straight. He told the Mail on Sunday (which Meghan and Harry are suing) what Meghan claims is “completely untrue” and that “I paid every penny of her tuition [at Northwestern] and I have the bank statements to prove it.”

Mr. Markle also paid for Meghan’s internship at the US embassy in Buenos Aires when she was a junior at Northwestern:

“I paid for her trips to Spain and England. I paid for her internship in Argentina. I always upheld my responsibilities as a father. Meghan’s comments about paying her way through college are offensive to me. I don’t want anything from Meghan or Harry but I’m not going to shut up until the whole truth is out there. I will continue to contradict anything said about me that isn’t true.”

Meghan’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, divorced when she was six. She was brought up entirely by her father, whom she has “ghosted” and didn’t invite to her London wedding. Although “climate-change activist” Harry doesn’t hesitate to fly on gas-guzzling carbon-spewing private jets, he had never bothered to meet his 75-year-old father-in-law, who is bankrupt, in poor health, and lives alone in Rosarito, Mexico.

Doria was the only member of Meghan’s biological family who was invited to the wedding. Meghan has “ghosted” not just her father, but also her paternal half-sister and half-brother, both of whom have warned the British royalty and the world about how destructive Meghan is.

Professor claims SpongeBob SquarePants is racist

It would be quicker for progressives to make a list of everything that is not racist.

From Yahoo: Spongebob Squarepants has been accused of normalizing the colonization of indigenous lands by a professor at the University of Washington.

The children’s cartoon – which marked its 20th anniversary this year – was criticized in a report by Professor Holly M. Barker.

She wrote: “SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends play a role in normalizing the settler colonial takings of indigenous lands while erasing the ancestral Bikinian people from their nonfictional homeland.”

The character Spongebob is a friendly sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea among the other residents of a town called Bikini Bottom. Professor Barker believes that this is a reference to the real-life Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Natives of Bikini Atoll were relocated in 1946 so the US military could use the area for nuclear testing during the Cold War, which drew criticism from the media after it was revealed that the inhabitants were left without adequate food or water to prevent them from starvation.

Later nuclear tests left the islands of the atoll contaminated with enough radiation to affect food grown in the soil, which meant the islands’ inhabitants were unable to return, and those who did experienced issues such as stillbirths, miscarriages and genetic abnormalities.

This has given rise to fan theories that the cartoon inhabitants of Bikini Bottom owe their mutation to the testing.

Professor Barker believes that as an American character allowed to inhabit an area that natives had no choice but to leave, SpongeBob showed his privilege of “not caring about the detonation of nuclear bombs”.

She also points out that the cultural appropriation of Pacific culture in Spongebob Squarepants, with Hawaiian-style shirts, homes in the shapes of pineapples, tikis and Easter Island heads, and the sounds of a steel guitar perpetuating stereotypes of the region.

In the article, Professor Barker claims that because of these themes, children have “become acculturated to an ideology that includes the U.S. character SpongeBob residing on another people’s homeland.”

The article concludes with this: We should be uncomfortable with a hamburger-loving American community’s occupation of Bikini’s lagoon and the ways that it erodes every aspect of sovereignty.”

The article was published in the journal The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs.

“Justice for Victims of Lynching Act” – These Words Are Loaded

They Presume “white guilt.”

Did 2 Democrat presidential hopefuls conspire with an entertainer to raise race hatreds for their mutual benefit?

World Net Daily and Gateway Pundit just came out with evidence that the Jussie Smollet race hoax was directly connected to Jessie Jackson (Jr. and Sr.), Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and Barack Obama.

The false accusati0n of white supremacist racism in the camp of Trump supporters was built to fan the flames of race hatred among blacks, and of white guilt among white liberals and leftists.

Let’s stop and think again about the name of the intended legislation:

“The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act”

Does this not imply that lynching is a current practice in America? And does not the Jussie Smollet hoax deliberately accuse Trump voters of being a hate filled lynch mob?

There is nothing that brings up images of the miscarriage of justice quite so much as the “work” of a lynch mob. And although the KKK is all but gone, the tendency of fallen human nature to do such a thing is all too real. We all need to stand for the rule of law, or the result will be out-of-control violence on all sides.

To use the accusation of lynching at this time is akin to shouting fire in a crowded theater. All reason leaves the dicusion, and adrenaline overrides every conversation. We all go onto full war footing because of the threat of such a thing happening again.

Here’s my take away on this subject

President Lucifer

Obama called himself a man of peace, but worked constantly to divide society on ethnic, racial and religious boundaries for his own advantage. He even tried to re-ignite Catholic-Protestant hostilities during a visit to Ireland. This “lynching” threat is right out of his play book. And it is clear Obama was in support of Jussie Smollett’s awful false accusation. It is no small thing that every entrenched person in the justice system that let Smollett go free has direct ties with Barack Obama.

Here’s the WND article, with a link to the Gateway Pundit article:
