So let’s get this straight.

This happened in Sioux Falls, SD!!! Not Dearbornistan Michigan! And everybody is okay with this?A muslim walks into a Christian conference with murderous intent, is blocked, then threatens American Christians in a Facebook video, and the police can’t find anything to charge him with?!!! Who are these police? Did they move here from England or Germany?

Finally a week later, after calls for his resignation, the police chief decides to act? He must be an Obama/Clinton voter.

How long will it be before we see scenes like this Yazidi woman for sale for $10 America?


AND THAT’S THE NEWS FROM ASSBAKISTAN

…where all the women wear trash bags, all the goats are good looking, and all the children are more murderous than average.

Avoiding making eye contact or asking where someone is from are signs of racism says Oxford University

microaggressions

From Daily Mail: Avoiding making eye contact with someone or asking where they are originally from have been deemed as racist micro-aggressions in a newsletter issued by Oxford University.  The institution’s Equality and Diversity Unit states these two common behaviours could potentially cause the listener ‘mental ill-health’. 

The Trinity term newsletter claims asking someone where they are ‘originally’ from implies that the questioner does not believe they are British.  The Trinity term newsletter also mentions ‘not speaking directly to people’ and ‘jokes drawing attention to someone’s difference’ as possible forms of everyday racism.

It says people doing these things are often ‘well-meaning’, but insists they are still reinforcing negative stereotypes and making people feel like they ‘do not belong’.

But Professor Frank Furedi, author of What’s Happened To The University, said the advice was ‘Orwellian’ and called on Oxford to ‘wake up to reality’.  He told MailOnline: ‘To go from simply stating someone is racist based on what they say to assume they are unconsciously racist is a very Orwellian turn. Microaggressions empower the accuser to say that it doesn’t matter what you intend by that look, I just know by the look of your eyes you are racist.

‘It is a very insidious way of thinking. Universities used to understand the reality that humans are complex.  It would be nice if Oxford could wake up to reality.’

Oxford University said the advice was part of an attempt to fight discrimination and encourage equality of opportunity. Students at the university recently took part in a campaign called ‘I, too, am Oxford’, to raise awareness of unconscious racism.

At one college, Pembroke, students are advised by their representatives to report ‘macro and microaggressions’ to a welfare officer. She will then deal with the issue by ‘mediation with the other party’ or ‘through the harassment policy’.

Professor Furedi said giving advice on avoiding microaggressions happens at ‘virtually every’ university in the USA, but is fairly new to the UK. The Emeritus Professor of Sociology at Kent University urged British students to resist the trend, adding: ‘A minority of students make it their own cause. ‘But there are usually a lot of people who think it is stupid but they acquiesce to it and eventually the influence of these ideas becomes more prominent.’

An Oxford University spokesman told MailOnline: ‘The Equality and Diversity Unit works with University bodies to ensure that the University’s pursuit of excellence goes hand in hand with freedom from discrimination and equality of opportunity.

‘The newsletter is one way of advising and supporting staff towards achieving these aims.’

The row comes two months after a Cambridge college was accused of ‘cultural misrepresentation’ by students after serving ‘Jamaican stew’ and ‘Tunisian rice’.  Students argued the dishes served at Pembroke College were not authentic to countries they were described to be from, The Sunday Times reported.

The original complainant said: ‘I’m used to as a minority student being constantly invalidated when flagging up specific issues but if people feel their cultures are misrepresented they have the right to address this. Micro-aggressions are a reality of the everyday exist­ence of many people of colour.’

Weinstein Co. to Challenge MPAA’s R Rating of Transgender Teen Drama

3 generations movie

Actors Fanning, Watts and Sarandon

Because it would be a “tragedy” if high school students couldn’t see this film.

From Hollywood Reporter: The Weinstein Co. (TWC) will challenge the MPAA’s decision to assign an R rating to its upcoming transgender drama 3 Generations. TWC was told that the film, which stars Elle Fanning, Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon and was directed by Gaby Dellal, received the rating due to language and some sexual references.

In its bid to downgrade the R rating to a PG-13, TWC has enlisted attorney David Boies, who is the company’s go-to lawyer for high-profile cases (Boies also represented TWC in its battle with Warner Bros. over the use of the title The Butler).

The MPAA offered a statement in response to TWC’s promise to fight the 3 Generations rating. “Under the Classifications and Ratings Administration (CARA) rules, the ratings board and appeals board maintain confidentiality and do not comment publicly about the process for movies under review,” MPAA spokesperson Chris Ortman said. “Any filmmaker who objects to the given rating can choose to go to the appeals board.”

TWC has a long history of challenging the MPAA’s ratings, sometimes successfully. The Michelle Williams-Ryan Gosling starrer Blue Valentine initially received an NC-17, but it was knocked down to an R. The company’s best picture Oscar winner The King’s Speech also received an R, which remained in place, but TWC managed to get a PG-13 rating for an alternate version.

Boies helped get the rating changed on the documentary Bully. Initially given an R for reasons similar to 3 Generations, TWC challenged the rating because it wanted the film to be more accessible to its intended teen audience. The film eventually received a PG-13.

“This film is a beautiful and touching story about family and identity,” said Watts, who stars in the film as the mother of the protagonist Ray, played by Fanning, and who also is an executive producer. “It is important for teenagers to see it and the R rating doesn’t reflect today’s society. 3 Generations doesn’t have a bad bone in its body. It’s an expression of love, acceptance, strength and honesty — values that could not be more necessary right now.

Added TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein: “Gaby, Naomi, Susan and Elle made this movie to share its message of acceptance and inclusion with all generations. The fact that an R rating would prevent high school students from seeing this film would truly be a travesty. The MPAA and I were able to come to an agreement on Bully, and I am confident that we will be able to do so again.”

The film follows Ray, a teenager who has struggled with the body assigned to him at birth and is determined to start transitioning. His single mother Maggie must track down Ray’s biological father (Tate Donovan) to get his legal consent to allow Ray’s transition. Dolly (Sarandon), Ray’s lesbian grandmother, is having a hard time accepting that she now has a grandson. The film follows their journey as each character confronts his or her own identity and learns to embrace change while ultimately finding acceptance and understanding.

“3 Generations is an important movie for everyone to see, especially transgender youth who are feeling isolated or fearful and their families,” said Sarandon. “It’s ridiculous to have an R rating, which would prevent this audience from seeing the film.”

Added Dellal: “As a mother and a filmmaker, I want to speak to kids, to parents and to grandparents everywhere in a common language of love and inclusion about a subject matter that is not only real and complicated, but one that is important and alive today. There are kids all over this country that are still too fearful to speak out and to step out; they’re too alone to fight, lacking the kinds of support that would let them feel free to be themselves. Our story wants to humanize this family experience, and to take the mystery out of the secrets. I hope the MPAA will reconsider this R rating and encourage children to see this story and feel connected.”

The problem with today’s generation…avoidance of learning a real life skill

They believe the key to acting like a grown up is purchasing roadside assistance coverage instead of actually learning how to change a flat tire. Ugh…

‘Happy Days’ TV actress Erin Moran dead at 56

Shocking.

Erin Moran, a co-star of the TV series Happy Days, was found dead last night, April 22, 2017, in a small trailer park in New Salisbury, Indiana, about two hours south of Indianapolis. She was 56.

While a cause of death has not been determined, pending autopsy results, the Daily Mail is citing local sources who say Moran died of a possible heroin overdose.

Moran made her first TV show appearance as a 6-year-old in 1966. She had parts in Gunsmoke, My Three Sons, Death Valley Days, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father before she landed, at age 13, the role of Joanie Cunningham, Ron Howard’s kid sister, on Happy Days. America watched Moran grow up on the program, which ran until 1983. She co-starred with Scott Baio in Joanie Loves Chachi from 1982 to 1983.

But Moran never again approached the success of Happy Days. After appearances on The Love Boat and Murder She Wrote, she had no screen credits from 1986 until 1998 and only three between ’86 and 2008, according to IMDB. In 2013, she appeared on reality TV show Celebrity Swan, in which has-beens would compete for free plastic surgery and a makeover.

In 2010, Moran lost her California home to foreclosure, and moved to Indiana with her second husband, Steve Fleischmann.

In 2012, actor Henry Winkler, “The Fonz” on Happy Days, reached out in an ultimately failed attempt to get Moran a part on his TV show Arrested Development. Moran did get some good news that year when she and Happy Days colleagues Marion Ross, Anson Williams, Don Most and the widow of Tom Bosley, settled a lawsuit with CBS for $65,000 each.

That same year, 2012, Moran and her husband were evicted from their trailer in Indiana by his mother, who was tired of Moran’s “hard partying ways.’’ Citing a source, the National Enquirer wrote: “Erin was going out to bars and coming home at all hours of the night, sometimes with her rowdy bar friends, and Steve’s mom just couldn’t take it anymore.’’

Moran bounced between friends’ couches and cheap motels. She and her husband She and her husband reportedly were booted out of a Holiday Inn for her heavy drinking and hard partying.

After news of Moran’s death, Winkler tweeted: “Oh Erin… now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth. Rest In It serenely now… too soon.” Another Happy Days alum, director Ron Howard tweeted, “Such sad sad news. RIP Erin. I’ll always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up tv screens.”

Sunday Devotional: Have mercy on us and on the whole world

John 20:19-20

On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked,
where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came
and stood in their midst
and said to them,
“Peace be with you.”
When He had said this,
He showed them His hands and His side.

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday.

The message of The Divine Mercy is simple: It is that God loves us — all of us, saints and sinners. He has an “ocean” of mercy, which is greater than our sins. We are to call on Him with trust and contrition, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others.

When I encounter great difficulties and find myself overwrought, desperate and suffering, I turn to Him with a child’s simple faith, and whisper: “Jesus, I trust in You.”

He always answers my plea.

So, to anyone out there whose soul and conscience may be stirred by this post, if you hear His voice, harden not your heart.

Take that first step by acknowledging you have sinned:

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell. But most of all because I have offended you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance and to amend my life. Amen.”

All you have to do is make that first step . . . .

You’ve come a long way, baby: British women at Grand National horse race

Britain’s most famous horse race, the annual Grand National at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England, has been a British sporting institution since 1839.

The second day of the 3-day racing festival is Ladies’ Day, when thousands of British women put on a fashion display in their finest frocks and hats, as the alcohol flows.

Below are some pics of the women, dressed like sluts and falling drunk, at this year’s Ladies’ Day on April 11, 2017 (source: Return of Kings).

Warning: Graphic

In 2015, Grand National tried to contain Ladies’ Day’s negative image by banning photographers from taking pictures of drunk and badly-dressed women. (Daily Mail)

Clearly, the ban failed.

Isn’t women’s liberation grand?
