Queering the Bible By Mrs Vera West

     Universities, at least in the US, and probably here in Ozzy, are running courses about queering the Bible, showing that the Bible is, I suppose, a gay document:  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/18/college-offers-credit-course-queering-bible/

“We will examine biblical passages that are central to prohibitions on homosexuality and the larger discourses of heteronormativity (constructed around gender, sexuality, class, national identity, state formations, kinship, children, etc.) in which homophobic readings of the Bible emerge. We will also look at the ways in which these discourses and the identities they shore up can be “queered,” as well as at biblical texts that can be read as queer friendly. This process of queering will allow and require us to approach the biblical text in new ways. Pomona student Daniel Silverman told Campus Reform the course meets the high demand at the school for classes that contain topics representative of left-wing ideology.

Hungary Bans Gender Studies; A Good Start By Mrs Vera West

     Imagine … there’s no gender studies departments … it is easy if you try …because Hungary has done it:  https://www.sbs.com.au/news/hungary-gender-studies-ban-prompts-university-anger

“A prestigious Hungarian university on Tuesday blasted a government decree that prohibits gender studies courses as a "major infringement" on academic freedom. The decree, signed by Prime Minister Viktor Orban and in force since Saturday, dropped the subject from a list of masters degree programmes entitled to official accreditation and financial support. Institutions are also now barred from launching new courses in the discipline, although students who have already begun courses may complete their studies, according to the decree. "This is a major infringement on academic freedom and university autonomy," said the Budapest-based Central European University (CEU) in a statement. "Eliminating this programme will be a significant loss to the Hungarian scholarly community and for democratically-minded public policy," said the CEU, one of only two universities in Hungary that offered gender studies degrees.

Letter to The Editor - Prejudiced and intolerant mindset that has intensified in recent decades

To The Australian        Matthew Lesh has provided a fine defence of the crucial importance to our justice system of the presumption of innocence ("Sexual assault too serious a crime for a campus verdict", 19/10). The universities of Sydney and Tasmania need to pull back from their proposals for home patch arbitration of rape assault charges on the basis of a balance of probabilities. Behind these proposals, as behind so many wild and woolly campaigns by radicals, lies a prejudiced and intolerant mindset that has intensified in recent decades. Where did this obtuse stubbornness come from? The answer is probably twofold: the loss of strength of the high quality intellectual traditions of Christianity (as opposed to relatively mindless forms of populist Protestantism) and the appalling rapidity of so much of modern life, which does not provide time for deep consideration of the implications of change of policy.   Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

On Red Indian White DNA By Chris Knight

     There has been much made by various critics about the results of the DNA test that libtard and Trump critic Elizabeth Warren has had. It seems that most of the White American population have more American Indian blood than her, showing that President Trump was right in his criticisms:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10-15-dna-tests-prove-elizabeth-warren-has-less-native-american-ancestry-than-the-average-white-american.html#   https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-15/elizabeth-warren-scalps-herself-dna-gambit-backfires   https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-15/elizabeth-warren-releases-dna-results-proving-she-part-native-american

“Democrat race hoaxer Elizabeth Warren wormed her way through Harvard by falsely claiming to be Native American. In 1997, the Fordham Law Review made her the poster child of successful “women of color” even though she’s white. Warren is widely expected to make a run for the presidency in 2020, so the entire fake news media is now trying desperately to clean up her history by finding some evidence that she might have Native American ancestry. Today, Elizabeth Warren released a so-called “DNA study” that had absolutely no independent chain of custody of her DNA sample, meaning the entire thing could have been easily faked by using someone else’s saliva or tissue sample. Even then, the DNA test revealed that she could be as little as 1/1024th Native America, or about .0976% “Indian.” This number comes from the Associated Press, which had to issue a correction because they got the math wrong in their first version of their report, which desperately tried to claim the DNA test proves Warren correct about her claims of being “Native American.”

Hillary Clinton Defends Billy Goat’s Sexual Adventures By Charles Taylor

     You have to hand it to the libtards for barefaced arrogance. We have been put through the debacle of the smearing of Justice Kavanaugh by numerous unsubstantiated rape claims, yet there is Bill Clinton, accused of rape by numerous credible victims, and what has happened? Well, Hillary Clinton has defended him, at least regarding the Lewinsky affair:  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/14/hillary-clinton-bill-not-abuse-power-lewinsky-affair/    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/hillary-clinton-says-husbands-affair-was-not-an-abuse-of-power   https://nypost.com/2018/10/14/hillary-bill-didnt-abuse-his-power-because-lewinsky-was-an-adult/

“Former 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in a Sunday interview that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, did not abuse his power when he had an affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.The former first lady told CBS Sunday Morning that her husband also made the right decision to not to resign from the presidency in the wake of the scandal that led to her husband’s impeachment for lying about the affair with the then-22-year-old intern. When asked if her husband should have resigned from the presidency, Clinton said, “Absolutely not.”

Feminism is the Collapse Of Western Civilisation: Camille Paglia By Mrs Vera West

     Truly amazing stuff: sensible feminist Camille Paglia says that the sort of feminism based upon destroying men, which is the foul brew spewed from our universities, is poisonous to culture and could bring down civilisation on its own.  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/13/camille-paglia-feminism-based-on-destroying-men-is-absolute-poison-to-culture/   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mb2JEX8DYYE

“The feminist icon – who prefers the original brand of feminism that won women the right to vote and raised up heroines such as Katharine Hepburn, Amelia Earhart, and Anne Morrow Lindbergh – said the more recent second wave of feminism is “an absolute poison that has spread worldwide.” Paglia said the original feminists “admired what men had done – there was no male-bashing – as became systemic to second-wave feminism.” The brand of feminism recreated by Betty Friedan in the 1960s, Paglia said, is now based on “denigrating men” and “defining men as oppressors and tyrants through history.” “It is an absolute lie,” she said, “an extrapolation of neuroticism on the part of these fanatics.” The author of Sexual Personae, Paglia added the “snowflake generation” is also a result of social media, “where people feel they have so many friends and they want a sense that reality is comforting them and cushioning them and so on.”

Letter to The Editor - Loss of strength of the high quality intellectual traditions

New Zealand Needs Abortion Clinics, Everywhere, for Human Right’s Sake! By Mrs Vera West

     I thought New Zealand was like say, Ireland, with abortion on demand, but, no. Anyway, the move is on to end New Zealand’s abortion ban, because, as always, it violate human rights, or some fiddle sticks like that:   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/oct/08/new-zealands-degrading-abortion-ban-breaches-human-rights-say-activists?CMP=soc_567

“An abortion advocacy group in New Zealand has laid a discrimination complaint alleging New Zealand’s strict abortion laws breach the human rights of pregnant people, and subject them to “ritual humiliation”. As experts prepare to hand down a major review into the country’s controversial abortion laws later this month, ALRANZ Abortion Rights Aotearoa has teamed up with five women who have experienced difficulties and emotional pain in accessing abortions in bringing their complaint to the country’s human rights commission. Under New Zealand law, abortion is a crime and legal only in cases of incest, “mental subnormality” or foetal abnormality, or where the physical or mental health of the mother would be seriously impacted by having a child. Other factors that may be taken into consideration but are not grounds in themselves include “sexual violation” and “extremes of age”. The joint complaint alleges that pregnant women suffer “demonstrably worse treatment than other people seeking health care” when accessing abortions, and experience “hurt feelings, loss of dignity, and cruel, degrading, and disproportionately severe treatment”. Terry Bellamak, national president of ALRANZ is awaiting the findings of a Law Commission review of the laws.”

Denmark Shines a Light in an Otherwise Dark, Immigration-Crazed West By Michael Ferguson

     The Danish Immigration and Integration Minister has taken a stand against the mass immigration swamping EU program:  https://gellerreport.com/2018/10/denmark-refuses-eu-migrant-quota.html/

“The Venstre party politician said that Denmark would not be opening the country’s borders to asylum seekers, saying: “Although we have gained significantly better control over the influx, we are still in the position that we are struggling to integrate the many refugees who have come to Denmark in recent years.” “Despite the fact that more refugees have come to work, there are still too many who do not support themselves. This applies especially to women, where too few contribute. That is why I have decided that Denmark should not take quota refugees in 2018,” Støjberg added, according to Jyllands-Posten. The statement comes after the Danish government passed legislation allowing the immigration minister to set the number of asylum seekers that would be welcomed into the country each year.

The Hex of the Witches: The Dark Claws of Political Correctness By Mrs Vera West

     Was this why witches were once burnt at the stake? No, it was due to patriarchal oppression, and fortunately, in our enlightened age, such brutality is a long forgotten thing:  https://www.seeker.com/seven-accused-african-witches-burned-to-death-1769174209.html   https://www.enca.com/africa/five-women-beaten-and-burned-part-of-rising-wave-of-tanzanian-witch-killings   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXidzbNPwSQ    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izT9yrg23PM

Who Needs Evidence for “Hate”? By Mrs Vera West

     In the UK, the legal system has dropped one component of the traditional law of evidence, for now no evidence at all is needed to make a complaint for a hate crime, apart, I suppose, for the accused being white:  https://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/01/10/no-evidence-needed-report-transphobic-hate-crime-new-cps-guidelines/

“The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has held a “public consultation” and issued “revised” guidelines on “hate crimes” and “transphobia”, which are likely to result in ever increasing numbers of people being dragged through court for speech crimes. As well as setting out policy on racism, homophobia, and “transphobia”, the new guidelines include the “first public policy statement on Crimes Against Disabled People” to stress the CPS “understand[s] the serious nature of these crimes”. The new guidelines reaffirm the fact that no evidence is needed to bring a criminal complaint against someone for a “hate crime”, as “reporting… is subjective and is based on the perception of the victim”. In order to treat a crime as a hate crime for the purposes of investigation, there is no need for evidence to prove the aggravating element”, the guidelines add. “Hate crimes” receive harsher sentences than other crimes, and “aggravating” factors are often vague, such as the definition of “transphobia”. Speaking to Breitbart London, London Assembly Member and UKIP Education Spokesman David Kurten explained the possible impact of these guidelines. “While judges may not actually find the accused guilty, more people may be dragged through the courts for months and years for their opinions and beliefs, and in the process lose their job, their house, their marriage and their kids, as well as being left destitute after fighting a lengthy court battle,” he said.’

“Girlie Man” Becomes One By John Steele

     While even some anti-Trump liberals have seen the writing on the wall, and denounced political correctness, others like Arnie Schwarzensplatter, sorry, Schwarzenegger, have gone in the opposite direction, and are undoing their tougher past:  https://www.breitbart.com/video/2018/10/13/maher-mainstream-liberals-need-to-denounce-insane-political-correctness/    https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/11/arnold-schwarzenegger-apologizes-for-coining-girlie-men/wilson

“Arnold Schwarzenegger used to joke that only “girlie men” opposed energetic capitalism and traditional American values. But now, the former bodybuilder, Hollywood star, and California governor is apologizing for popularizing the phrase. Schwarzenegger once made a name for himself with his he-man political style, making fun of his opponents as weaklings who could not lead. At least as early as 2004 Schwarzenegger called California Democrats “girlie men” and noted that in the next election the GOP would “terminate” them. His phrase even became the stuff of Saturday Night Live parody in the characters of faux bodybuilders Hans and Franz. In a new interview with Men’s Health magazine, Schwarzenegger is abjectly apologetic over his “girlie men” taunt. “At the time it felt like the right thing to do. It was in my gut. I improvised it. I called them girlie men because they weren’t willing to take risks,” the actor told the magazine. “They were afraid of everything,” he explained. “Politicians, in general, want to do little things, so there’s no risk involved.”

Now Even Physics is Politically Correct! By Brian Simpson

     In a previous article on the state of universities, I think James Reed said that the discipline of physics has held out against the current political correctness mania. He was wrong:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10-10-science-under-attack-by-libtards-physics-isnt-sexist.html

“A physics professor at the University of Pisa in Italy recently became the subject of an “ethics investigation” at his school following a lecture he gave about how modern leftist dogma that blames “sexism” for allegedly keeping women from succeeding in the sciences is absolute bunk. Alessandro Strumia boldly and unequivocally stated that “cultural Marxism” is responsible for pushing this ridiculous feminist propaganda, highlighting the fact that common leftist buzzwords like “microaggression,” “gaslighting,” and “mansplaining” are perpetuating the lie that men are somehow “mobilizing their masculinity” to keep women from achieving scientific success. Entitled, “High Energy Theory and Gender,” Strumia’s lecture, which took place at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland, was quickly criticized by leftists involved with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, also known as STEM, for allegedly being “discriminatory” against women.

US College Students Know Where the Multi-Gender Toilets are, but Not the Post Office, and that’s a Good Thing, Too By Charles Taylor

     With the cult of the Left dominating the universities, it is a good thing that students do not know how to get stamps to post off their voting registration, because anything not on-line is simply beyond the little dears:  https://cnycentral.com/news/nation-world/college-students-allegedly-struggling-to-vote-because-some-dont-know-how-to-obtain-stamps

“An official for Fairfax County, Va. said she has noticed that many young people studying in a state other than the one they are formally registered are not completing the voting process because "they don't know where to get stamps." Lisa Connors, who works at the Fair County Office of Public Affairs, said the apparent problem was brought up in a focus group consisting of college students interning for the area's government agencies. "One thing that came up, which I had heard from my own kids but I thought they were just nerdy, was that the students will go through the process of applying for a mail-in absentee ballot, they will fill out the ballot, and then, they don't know where to get stamps," Connors said, according to WTOP. "That seems to be like a hump that they can't get across."

Don’t Grieve about the Grievance Studies Affair By James Reed

     This is a fantastic paper that brings together perhaps the last sane voices in the academy to talk about the “Grievance Studies Affair,” where a group of academics wrote politically correct absurd papers, submitted them to Leftist journals and got many of them accepted, and published. There are some juicy quotes made by the largely philosophical critics about how postmodernism, the name given to the core destructive philosophy behind modern Leftism, has moved to dominate university culture, and even is making a move into the STEM areas of science. I think that disciplines like biology and medicine have been taken over decades ago, and it is only fields like mathematics, physics and chemistry, have yet to fall:  https://quillette.com/2018/10/01/the-grievance-studies-scandal-five-academics-respond/

Your Children Will be Transgender, or Else! By Mrs Vera West

     If you do not let your son put on makeup and a dress, then watch out, because Big Sister is going to swat you:  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2018/10/04/parents-wont-let-son-wear-skirt-may-have-referred-social-services/

“Parents who refuse to let their son wear a skirt to school may need to be referred to social services, a council’s guidance has advised schools. Mothers and fathers who dismiss a “gender questioning” child’s requests to change their name could also be a trigger for concern, according to Brighton and Hove City Council’s “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit”. It comes after warnings that schools are "sowing confusion" in children's minds by over-promoting transgender issues, and that children are being encouraged to “unlearn” the difference between boys and girls. The guidance advises teachers on how to handle a number of different scenarios, including if parents say: “I refuse to allow my son to change his name or wear skirts”. Schools are advised that some parents may “struggle” to accept their child’s gender identity and it may be a long time before they accept the change. “If a setting has a significant concern about the child’s wellbeing and or safety in relation to how the parents or carers are managing the exploration of the child’s gender identity it may be necessary and advisable to follow safeguarding procedures,” schools are told.”

Swiftly Taylored Political Correctness from the Singing Canary By Charles Taylor

     The US power elites are rolling out their secret weapons, with ultra-skinny pop music icon Taylor Swift coming out in favour of the Democrats, and continuing the politically correct narrative that the rest of the chatterers have begun.   https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/07/taylor-swift-marsha-blackburn-tennessee-senate-race/   https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/10/08/donald-trump-shuns-taylor-swift-after-marsha-blackburn-smear/   https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/08/taylor-swift-fans-furious-over-democrat-endorsement-be-quiet-and-sing/    https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/08/taylor-swift-endorses-democrat-who-supports-brett-kavanaugh/

All You Racists Out There, Write a Letter to Family about Converting to Islam! By Richard Miller

     This is one from the “how bad can it get” department. In the UK a father has been branded a “racist” for complaining about his stepdaughter being required at school to write about converting to Islam:  https://www.jihadwatch.org/2018/10/uk-stepfather-called-racist-for-complaining-about-stepdaughters-assignment-to-write-about-converting-to-islam   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5069919/Sunderland-stepdad-explains-Islam-homework-complaint.html

“A stepfather who slammed his 12-year-old's school for making her write a letter about 'converting to Islam' has been called a 'racist bigot' and is terrified of violent repercussions. Mark McLachlan, 43, complained to Kepier School in Houghton-le-Spring, Sunderland when he found the homework task in his stepdaughter's planner. He refused to let her finish the 'letter to my family about converting to Islam', claiming it was 'brainwashing' her about the religion and did not see what it would achieve. But since posting about it on social media he says he has received a lot of abuse. He told MailOnline: 'My wife and I are terrified of the repercussions. 'Any time anybody says anything negative about Islam they are torn to shreds. 'I've been called a racist and a bigot, but I'm just terrified for my children and for the way this country is going. 'In 50 years time I can see Britain becoming an Islamic state and my children and grandchildren are still going to be alive - I don't want them wearing a niqab.'

K-A-V-A-N-A-U-G-H! The Sweet Tears of Victory By Charles Taylor

     The politically correct saga of the appointment of judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court has ended, with victory for Trump, and a crushing defeat for the forces of darkness, decay and degeneracy:  https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/10/06/kavanaugh-confirmed-possibly-most-conservative-supreme-court-since-1934/

     We saw the entire libtard establishment turn out to parade liars who were willing to say whatever lies were needed to sink Brett the Noble. It all turned to dust because the guy showed guts and stood his ground, refusing to be intimidated. He was no low testosterone cuck, and Ann Coulter summed it up by saying that even if Brett liked a bit of beer, she would like to see all young college  men drink what he is drinking to get some manhood back:  https://vdare.com/articles/ann-coulter-this-time-kavanaugh-s-supporters-are-not-accepting-surrender

Who will be their slaves? Academia is Fake News by Definition By James Reed

     We did not cover the story, but a little while ago there was an academic paper published on rape culture in dogs. Basically, the line taken was to use the usual crazy feminist “men are all rapist” ideology, and apply it to dogs. Sure, there are epistemological and methodological problems about conceptualising doggy consent, but that did not stop the authors. Now it seems the paper, and others are fake, as far as anything is not fake in the world of the universities:  https://www.wsj.com/articles/fake-news-comes-to-academia-1538520950

“The existence of a monthly journal focused on “feminist geography” is a sign of something gone awry in academia. The journal in question—Gender, Place & Culture—published a paper online in May whose author claimed to have spent a year observing canine sexual misconduct in Portland, Ore., parks. The author admits that “my own anthropocentric frame” makes it difficult to judge animal consent. Still, the paper claims dog parks are “petri dishes for canine ‘rape culture’ ” and issues “a call for awareness into the different ways dogs are treated on the basis of their gender and queering behaviors, and the chronic and perennial rape emergency dog parks pose to female dogs.”
