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.

‘Apolitical’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle support charity against US-Mexico wall

 

In the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom, royals (what an archaic concept!) are not supposed to be political by being partisan, or interfering in the affairs of government, or even venturing a political opinion.

But the oh-so-woke “Duke and Duchess of Sussex” Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, the former D-list actress of whom no one had heard until news of their marriage, are not abiding by that unspoken but understood convention.

As an example, in August of this year, a barefoot Harry lectured the world on climate change at the Google Climate Summit in Sicily, never mind the fact that he flew to the summit in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jet and stayed in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing super-yacht while on the island.

That act of eco-hypocrisy was followed by even more, as Harry and Meghan took four gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jets in just 11 days for vacation.

Just recently, Harry again virtue-signaled when he announced he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, the Left’s darling-dujour whom a Swedish church blasphemously calls a “successor” to Jesus Christ.

The Toxic Couple’s latest violation of the no-politics royal protocol is their public support for a California “migrant” charity that opposes the construction of a US-Mexico border wall.

Victoria Ward reports for The Telegraph, October 7, 2019, that each month Harry and Meghan highlight a number of different charities on their sussexroyal Instagram page.

One of the accounts the couple “followed” is that of Border Kindness, a charity founded just last year in direct response to President Trump’s plan to build a wall on the Mexico border.

Before she married Harry, HillaryClinton-supporter Meghan was outspoken about Trump, calling him “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Founded by Kelly Overton who has masters degrees from both Harvard and Columbia universities, Border Kindness has about 12 volunteers who work in the Mexicali area of Mexico providing clothes, transport, food and legal aid to “migrants” intent on gaining illegal entrance into the United States.

Overton called the “migrant” crisis at the Mexico border “one of the most inhumane and unfair” crises ever seen. He said: “I’m ashamed of this country I’m from. To treat people like this is just beyond belief and we see on the ground that it’s getting worse. Our response is in direct response to President Trump’s immigration policies. We work with women and children who are incredibly vulnerable, who have nothing when they arrive at this city in the desert.”

Overton then wielded Demonrats’ favorite go-to “racism” card. He said that if “white kids were taken from their parents and put somewhere” there would be international outrage.

DirecTV charged $160 early-termination fee after woman died at age 102

 

How heartless and grubbing can a business be.

Isabel Albright was born on September 11, 1916 in Oakland, California. She lived through 18 presidents and two world wars, and left behind a huge family.

When she died last December at the remarkable age of 102, her family was shocked when satellite television provider DirecTV charged her an “early termination” fee of $160.

KGO ABC7 reports, Oct. 1, 2019, that Albright’s family was repairing her house in San Leandro for sale, sifting through her belongings in a life that spanned an entire century. Then they discovered that DirecTV actually billed the dead woman an “early termination fee”.

Albright’s son in law, John Manrique of Hayward, said: “Everything was fine until we went to disconnect [her DirectTV] and that’s when all the surprises happened. They told us… we’re going to charge you $160 for an early termination fee. She’s gone. Nobody’s living (here). We’re selling the house. You’re going to tell us we have to keep the service at a house that’s not ours?”

Toward the end of Albright’s life, a caregiver moved in, and her daughter stayed often. So the family added a DirecTV box in a back room for caregivers.
Little did they know that adding the service started a whole new two-year agreement with DirecTV.

Manrique said: “Nobody told us that. And in fact we made it clear when we added the TV in the extra room that it was a temporary thing…. We’re saying my mother in law’s on hospice, we’re not gonna pay, you know, two year contract.”

DirecTV said the family had to pay — even though Albright had died — because the bill was in the name of her daughter, Linda Manrique. John says his wife was paying all of her mother’s bills “because her mother couldn’t do it anymore…. We were trying to make sure that all the bills got paid. ”

The Manriques kept calling DirecTV asking for proof they’d signed a two year agreement. John Manrique said: “They had no proof other than you started this new service on this date…and that starts a new contract whether you signed it or not. Every time you hiccup they start you on a new two-year agreement basically. It’ll run the rest of your life if you accept some other feature or other. They got you.”

Manrique contacted ABC7 On Your Side. The TV station reached out to DirecTV and soon after, Manrique received a letter of apology from DirecTV’s parent company, AT&T. It agreed to waive the early termination fee and said, “We have apologized to the family and resolved this.”

Manrique said, “This never would have resolved if I hadn’t contacted 7 On Your Side. It turned out to be fantastic, thanks to you.”

According to Newsweek, forcing families to pay cancellation fees after a death has been a point of contention, but some state governments are working to change that.

In 2018, New York governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation that barred any cable or telecommunications companies from charging termination penalties after the primary customer on the account passed away. New York now imposes a $1000 fine on any company found charging fees after a customer dies.

This is RICH: Libtard Sarah Silverman says the world needs more empathy

 

Amazing how having your show cancelled helps get you suddenly full of empathy.

On October 11 Silverman retweeted this tweet (by Rob Delaney) about President Trump: “rot in hell nazi c*nt.”

Yeah, Silverman’s a changed womyn for sure…

From Hollywood Reporter: Sarah Silverman is probably thinking about what this headline says.

At the New Yorker Festival on Saturday night, the comedian spoke with New Yorker staff writer Andrew Marantz about the dangers of clickbait culture and how headlines don’t always accurately reflect the nuance of the discussion.

“People are terrified, and to be honest, so am I right now,” Silverman said about speaking honestly, noting that she’s inadvertently hurt people in the past through her comments being digested into short soundbites.

That didn’t stop her from speaking honestly about the importance of change and empathy in the current social and political climate. Marantz opened the conversation by asking Silverman about her journey as a performer and the change in her comedy. While she started out performing an ignorant and arrogant character version of herself in her first special Jesus Is Magic, she’s since “had an identity crisis” as a comedian.

“Comedy dies in the second guessing of your audience,” Silverman said about her early trials to figure out how to perform what people wanted to see. “You have to be willing to bomb and start over. It’s easy to bomb when nobody knows who you are.”

Silverman and Marantz also spoke about her show I Love You, America, in which Silverman met with people who held different beliefs from her own and tried to have an open discussion. She explained that many an individual’s hatred stems initially from a desire to be a part of something with other people.

“It’s not about hate, but it’s about they found a community where they belong,” Silverman said of white supremacists. “Nobody has changed by being shamed or being judged.”

She also spoke about people like Christian Picciolini, who founded Free Radicals Project to prevent extremist movements after his own time in a white supremacist network, and Megan Phelps-Roper, the granddaughter of the Westboro Baptist Church founder who discovered a new path for herself through discussions with people on social media.

“People go towards love. This is what humans do,” the comedian said. “I’m a hypocrite in a thousand ways, but people are changed.”

Silverman went on to speak about her own change, as she hesitantly mentioned her decision to apologize for a segment on The Sarah Silverman Program when her character performed blackface as part of an episode about racism. Silverman said she harbored shame for many years and wanted to apologize for her “complicity in a liberal bubble racism.”

The comedian also discussed the dangers of cancel culture and internet shaming. “Can we hope for people to change? Can we be open to being changed?” Silverman asked.

“Cancel culture is a weird black and white thing that I think should take into account the nuance of things and the people’s intentions and their room for growth and if they have changed or if they have not — there’s a big difference,” she said.

Drugs, needles, feces, rats and STDs, oh my! STD cases hit 30-year high in California

 

From KTLA: Sexually transmitted diseases reached epidemic levels in California last year, with three STDs hitting their highest levels in the state in 30 years, according to a report released Tuesday.

For 2018, the California Department of Public Health saw an increased number of reported syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia cases. The number of cases also rose significantly from a decade ago.

Syphilis had the most dramatic spike over the 10-year period in terms of percentage; the 25,344 diagnoses represents a sharp rise of 265% from 2008, according to the report.

Chlamydia had the most cases last year with 232,181, up 56% over the past decade. And there were 79,397 cases of gonorrhea, 211% more than 10 years ago.

But what was particularly concerning for health officials was the number of congenital syphilis diagnoses which rose 14% from the previous year and increased for a sixth consecutive year. Since 2012, the number of infants diagnosed with the potentially lethal disease skyrocketed 900%.

There were 19 stillbirths or 3 neonatal deaths associated with congenital syphilis last year, according to the report. Thirty-one infants also had other symptoms or complications.

STD rates are rising all over California, in both men and women, the report found. But there are some disparities, with the highest number of cases reported among people between the ages of 15-24, African-Americans, and those who are gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with other men, according to the department.

“Underlying drivers of the increases of STDs relate to a complex web of social factors,” the report read. “Some people diagnosed with STD have experienced substance use, incarceration, the exchange of sex for money/housing/other resources, poverty, homelessness and disparities in access to care.”

There are satanists in the U.S. Naval Academy

 

Rod Dreher is a senior editor at The American Conservative and a published author of four books. (Read more about him here.)

In an October 9 post on The American Conservative, Dreher alerts us to the alarming news that there are organized satanists in the U.S. Naval Academy.

Founded in 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) is the second oldest of the United States’ five service academies, and educates officers for commissioning primarily into the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.

Dreher reports that an American Conservative “reader affiliated with the US Naval Academy said that people there received this e-mail” on October 8, 2019. Below is a screenshot of the email.

In the interest of legibility, here’s a text of the email that I transcribed from the above image:

Good Afternoon Brigade,

Starting this Thursday, Satanic services will be offered on the yard.

Who: Caters to people who prescribe to the Satanic Temple’s philosophy, however all people of any faith background are welcome to attend!
What: Satanic religious services, discussions of Satanic Philosophy, discussions of literary history of Satan.
When: Every Thursday at 1900.
Where: The Media Room at the back of Stein Hall in the Levy Center
Why: To promote critical thinking and discussion on Satanic values as they pertain to our lives.
How: Just show up!

Please contact Chief [name redacted] with any questions.

Very respectfully,

Dreher continues:

The reader said that e-mail set off a firestorm. A few minutes later, the Chief who authored that e-mail sent this follow-up:

Dreher apologizes for the blurry screenshot of the email: “If you are having trouble reading it, the gist is that the Chief is a confessed Satanist, and is inviting others at the USNA to participate in a Satanic ritual.”

The reader who sent Dreher the information wrote that “the Chief” admits he’s a member of the Satanic Temple and gave links to a website that “talks about Black Masses and ‘unbaptisms’.” The reader said that the command chaplain, a Catholic priest, had no idea any of this was going on, and is furious.

On October 11, 2019, Task & Purpose, a military and veteran-focused digital media company, reports that USNA spokeswoman Cmdr. Alana Garas said the Satanic service would not take place because “that email was sent prematurely…without the review and approval of the Naval Academy’s Command Chaplain, as required by command policy.”

Garas said that a group of midshipmen “with beliefs aligned with those practiced by The Satanic Temple” had requested a space for a “study group” to discuss their satanic beliefs — and not, as the email in question indicated, for holding satanic religious services.

As of 2017, the U.S. military recognized 221 distinct “faith groups” from major religions like the Roman Catholic Church and Islam to more arcane and esoteric affiliations like Druid, Troth, Heathen, and Pagan. In January 2019, a group of sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis conducted religious services based in Norse Heathenry with the approval of their commanding officer. In May 2019, the U.S. government officially recognized the Satanic Temple as a tax-exempt religion.

Rod Dreher raises these fundamental and very troubling questions about our polity and society:

The matter of Satanists meeting at the USNA raises the broader question of the limits of tolerance in a liberal society. Is Satanism a religion like every other? Theologically, I would say no. But as a matter of public accommodation in a pluralist polity, a liberal one in which there is a formal separation of Church and State, it is hard to see how lines can be drawn to defend society against this evil. The phenomenon reveals the instability at the heart of classical liberalism…. At what point does liberalism cross the line from being a tool that can be used to defend the Good when it has become unpopular, and becomes instead a clear and present danger to the Good?

California man who relied on oxygen pump died 12 minutes after PG&E cut power to prevent fires

 

From Daily Mail: A Northern California man dependent on oxygen died just 12 minutes after Pacific Gas and Electric shut down power to the area as part of an effort to prevent fires.

El Dorado County Fire Chief Lloyd Ogan said on Friday that a call was placed to the fire department from Pollock Pines after 3.30am on Wednesday. Crews arrived at the scene and found Robert Mardis Sr., 67, unresponsive and were unable to revive him, according to the Mountain Democrat.

Ogan said the man’s oxygen equipment required power, but could not say whether the shutdown was related to his death.

Mardis Sr.’s daughter, Marie Aldea, told FOX 40 that her father had several health issues and she believes the power cuts were involved in his death.

She said: ‘He had health issues. He had really bad COPD, which didn’t help, and he had congestive heart failure and other health issues, but the power going off and him not being able to get to his oxygen is, I believe, is what did it.’

Mardis Sr.’s oxygen tank reportedly lost power during PG&E’s power shutdown and he was unable to reach his battery-operated oxygen tank in time.

‘He’ll never see my kids get married, he’ll never see his grandchildren,’ Aldea said. ‘How do you fix that? You don’t. You can’t. Something got taken away from me that I can never get back, and I will miss my father forever.’

PG&E spokesman Jeff Smith said it has not been able to confirm the accuracy of the report.The power company told Fox 40: ‘We have no information on incident and have not been able to confirm the accuracy of the report. We refer you to local officials in El Dorado County.’

Governor Gavin Newson spoke out on Friday about the tragic death. ‘Losing a family member is horrific and to the extent this was the reason why, I hope that is investigated and I hope those responsible are held to account,’ he said.

The news of his death comes on the heels of the deaths of two others from the wildfires on Thursday: a man in his 50s who suffered cardiac arrest and Lois Arvickson, 89, after a fire swept through her mobile home park. It’s unclear whether the unnamed victim was pronounced dead at his home or in another location.

Winds gusted dangerously as forecast before calming in Northern California, where PG&E faced hostility and second-guessing over its widespread shutoffs.

Governor Gavin Newsom criticized PG&E and ordinary customers complained about the inconveniences caused by the unprecedented blackouts that began midweek.

PG&E, though, suggested it was already seeing the wisdom of its decision borne out as gusts topping 77mph raked the San Francisco Bay Area amid a bout of dry, windy weather.

‘We have found multiple cases of damage or hazards’ caused by heavy winds, including fallen branches that came in contact with overhead lines,’ said Sumeet Singh, a vice president for the utility company. ‘If they were energized, they could’ve ignited.’

Because of the dangerous weather in the forecast, PG&E cut power on Wednesday to an estimated two million people in an area. PG&E said on Friday that it has restored electricity to about 543,000 businesses and residences.

Another 195,000 customers had remained without power. Experts say a customer includes between two and three people. Areas without power includes Plumas, Yuba and Butte counties, where people are on their third day without electricity.

Butte County is where a fire started by PG&E equipment last year decimated the town of Paradise and killed 85 people.

The utility says power also remain out in of Kern County in the southern part of the state’s agricultural Central Valley, where strong winds prompted PG&E to cut power on Thursday.

The utility it was able to restore power after winds subsided and workers could inspect its power lines.

——————–

The coroner has determined that PG&E wasn’t at fault for this man’s death. That was quick…

Illegal alien accused of shooting transgender woman was previously deported

 

Illegal alien Ramirez-Cayente/Dallas County Sheriff’s photo

Ruh roh, demorats…you’ve got an undocumented immigrant who is a prohibited possessor versus a highly-protected special class – transgender womyn. Which one you going to protect in this case?

From Fox News: A Mexican citizen who allegedly shot a transgender Dallas woman last month was living in the United States illegally and is now a fugitive, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said.

Domingo Ramirez-Cayente, 29, deported in 2010, was arrested Sept. 24 and charged with aggravated assault, The Dallas Morning News reported. He reportedly admitted to shooting Daniela Calderon, 35, six times in the chest, stomach and hip.

Calderon told the newspaper Ramirez-Cayente yelled homophobic and transphobic slurs during the attack.

Instead of being held in police custody, Ramirez-Cayente posted a $25,000 bond and hasn’t been seen since. It was unclear if he remains in the area. Dallas County prosecutors wanted him to be fitted with an ankle monitor, but the terms of his bond were set before they could intervene.

“The magistrate set the bond at $25,000 with no ELM (electronic leg monitor). As soon as the D.A.’s Office was made of aware of the low bond, we moved to amend the conditions of bond to include a monitoring device; unfortunately, the defendant had already fled,” Kimberlee Leach, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney’s office, told the news outlet.

Back in March 2010, Ramirez-Cayente was taken into custody by ICE agents near Brackettville, Texas, after entering the U.S. illegally, the agency said.

“Ramirez-Cayente was processed as an expedited removal and removed to Mexico on March 27, 2010. ICE has not encountered Ramirez-Cavente since his 2010 removal,” said an agency spokesperson.

ICE did not immediately respond to Fox News for comment.

Anyone caught reentering the U.S. illegally can be charged with a felony. It was unclear if the Dallas Police Department flagged Ramirez-Cayente as an undocumented immigrant charged with a crime.

California governor signs 15 new gun-control bills, incl. America’s worst red-flag law

 

On Friday, October 11, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, signed 15 gun-related bills into law, further tightening the state’s already-stringent Second Amendment restrictions. The laws will take effect Jan. 1, 2020.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and its state affiliate, the California Rifle and Pistol Association, oppose the new laws. (Los Angeles Times)

Even the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) opposes this law because AB 61 “poses a significant threat to civil liberties” in that a restraining order can be sought before a gun owner has an opportunity to dispute the request, and because those making a request under the new law may “lack the relationship or skills required to make an appropriate assessment.” (Fox News)
  • AB 164 by Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside) holds any person subject to a valid restraining order, injunction, or protective order issued out of state to the same restrictions on buying or possessing firearms in California as they are under in the state where the order or injunction is operative.
  • AB 339 by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) requires law enforcement agencies to develop and adopt written policies and standards regarding the use of gun violence restraining orders.
  • AB 1493 by Assemblymember Philip Ting (D-San Francisco) authorizes a person who is the subject of a gun violence restraining order to petition to submit a form to the court voluntarily relinquishing their firearm rights.

Laws on firearms sales:

  • SB 61 by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) prohibits the sale of a semiautomatic centerfire rifle to any person under 21 years of age, and applications to purchase more than one semiautomatic centerfire rifle in any 30-day period, with a few exceptions.
  • SB 376 by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) prevents individuals from selling large numbers of firearms without a license by capping the number of annual sales at 5 transactions or 50 firearms.
  • AB 645 by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks) requires packaging for firearms to contain a warning statement on suicide prevention.
  • AB 879 by Assemblymember Mike Gipson (D-Carson) requires, starting in 2024, that the sale of firearms precursor parts be conducted through a licensed firearms precursor part vendor.
  • AB 1669 by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Alameda) updates existing law by applying the same gun show regulations that already apply to firearms dealers to ammunition vendors, and ensures that sufficient funding is available for firearm regulatory efforts.
  • AB 1297 by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) requires any local authority issuing concealed firearm licenses to charge an applicant a fee sufficient to cover the reasonable costs of processing, issuing and enforcement of the license, and eliminates the existing $100 limit on processing fees for concealed firearm licenses.
  • AB 893 by Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) prohibits the sale of firearms and ammunitions at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in the County of San Diego, the City of Del Mar, the City of San Diego.

Other laws:

  • AB 1548 by Assemblymember Jesse Gabriel (D-Encino) codifies the California State Nonprofit Security Grant Program to improve the physical security of nonprofit organizations that are at high risk of violent attacks or hate crimes due to ideology, beliefs, or mission.
  • AB 1603 by Assemblymember Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland) codifies the California Violence Intervention and Prevention Grant Program to help reduce violence in communities that are disproportionately impacted by violence.
  • AB 521 by Assemblymember Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto) requires, with the adoption of a resolution by the University of California, the UC Firearm Violence Research Center at the University of California, Davis to develop multifaceted education and training programs for medical and mental health providers on the prevention of firearm-related injury and death.

There’s a petition to recall Gov. Newsom. To sign, go here.
