Politically correct and intellectually intolerable

There is no issue more clearly delineating right and left (or perhaps I should say right and wrong) than political correctness. Anyone with traditional values and, perhaps more to the point, traditional common sense can only shake his (or her) head at the lunacy that prevails in so much of our society today. [SNIP] What exactly am I talking about? You only need to read a few recent news stories to get the gist of it, but what drove me over the edge was a story from last week that three Portland, Oregon, elementary schools were having their names changed

Make the schools use his entire name instead of just the last name. Problem solved.

Soon, we will need to ban the following words:
String - as in "string ´em up."
Necktie - as in "necktie party."
Rope - as in "Somebody get a rope!"
Also: hang, stretch, swing, and even the phrase, "Good day - as in "Good day for a hangin´´" and so on.
Idiots.

The single comment at the time I read this article makes a good point - PC (political correctness) is simply a way to do an ´end around´ the First Amendment.

One can also view ´multiculturalism´ as nothing more than ´divide and conquer´.

Can´t believe that Mr. Miele didn´t write about the worst ´politically correct and intellectually intolerable´ happening in Oregon last month. A woman had a baby and it made international news. Why? Because she says she´s a man. Talk about shoving something down our throats and calling us haters when we point out how ridiculous it is.

The human cost of hate, and the high price of love

If life were as simple as the mainstream media makes it out to be, then we would have the luxury of never having to think about anything. We could all march in lockstep from birth to death, never disagreeing, never finding nuance, never having to worry about the other side — because there wouldn’t be another side. Of course, there are such simple societies, but come to think of it, they are simply horrible. I’m talking about the nations, cultures and religions that don’t tolerate diversity of opinion, ethnicity or religion. I’m talking about Germany under Hitler, China under Mao, Russia under

Inter Lake´s grizzly story ´repurposed´ by the Post

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well, I suppose so, but it is also a bit infuriating, as we found out at the Daily Inter Lake last week when the Washington Post came very close to flattering us to death. Our reporter Mackenzie Reiss had done an excellent report last Sunday on the 50th anniversary of the bear maulings that became known as “The Night of the Grizzlies,” and we were excited a few days later to see that the Washington Post had picked it up to use on their own website. Well, not exactly. The Post story had the

Monster swamp vs. swamp

Politically speaking, I’m caught between a rock and a hard place, or more appropriately between a monster swamp and a swamp monster. The swamp is the bipartisan disaster known more formally as the federal government. The monster is President Donald Trump, whose out-sized self-caricature approach to life makes him more of a tormented DC Comics superhero (or supervillain?) than a D.C. politician. There is no way I am going to support the swamp and its bureaucratic morass, which has a bottomless national debt and the moral code of a toothy gator. But accepting Trump on his own terms means you have to

What a difference 65 years makes — NOT!The “witch hunt” under way in Washington, D.C., where every flag-waving liberal in Washington, D.C., is looking for Russian “collusion” throughout the Trump administration, is not exactly new.In fact, it was another Republican who was the subject of a similar witch hunt in 1952 (and throughout his two terms as president). Dwight D. Eisenhower, the five-star general who was Allied commander in Europe during World War II, was targeted both by Democrats and by fellow Republicans for being too cozy with communists.I know it’s hard for liberals to see themselves playing the part

Trump and the ´Mean Girls´
of the media

The preening journalists who have made a profession out of hounding Donald Trump probably see themselves as avatars of Woodward and Bernstein in “All the President’s Men,” but I think they are sadly miscast. Rather, the movie that seems to best describe the media’s bullying of Donald Trump and deception of the public is “Mean Girls,” a 2004 comedy which showed how damaging leaks and hidden dossiers could be when put in the hands of an unscrupulous adolescent. In that film’s high-school setting, rumors, whispers and “fake news” work to destroy the lives of several characters until the culprits are forced

Greg Gianforte has been excoriated by the national media, state media, Democrats and even some Republicans for “body-slamming” a reporter the day before being elected Montana’s sole congressman on May 25. Some of those critics have gone so far as to recommend that Gianforte not be seated in the House of Representatives because of his actions, even though he has apologized to his constituents and to the reporter, and admitted the fault was entirely his own. Admittedly, it’s not a stellar way to start your political career. Scratch that. It’s a horrible way to start your political career, but it’s not unprecedented for a member of

   

 

  


 
School offers apology for graduation incident
Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Hilary Matheson    Original Article
Posted By: davesenior- 6/6/2017 11:08:42     Post Reply
Flathead High School issued an apology after a Flathead High School graduate of Blackfeet descent was prevented from wearing a cap with a Native American headdress and striped motif painted on the mortarboard at the June 2 commencement ceremony. The incident arose because of a conflict between the school’s long-time dress code for the ceremony and a brand-new state law. Although 17-year-old Zephrey Holloway was allowed to wear an eagle feather, he was given an unadorned black cap to wear instead of the cap his grandmother, Blackfeet artist Valentina LaPier, had painted. This was despite Holloway showing administrators a screen shot of Senate

´Star Wars´ and me: 40 years of living with the force

An anniversary passed without much notice last week, and I suppose with all the mayhem and madness, it is understandable that few people thought about the importance of May 25, 1977 — the date when the Force first awakened and a new era began. It’s hard to believe that 40 years have passed since George Lucas first unleashed the “Star Wars” franchise on an unsuspecting world. It may be the fastest 40 years in the history of the world. I’ll check with Einstein on that, and get back to you, but it certainly zoomed by for this 61-year-old fan. Forty years ago,

Trump plays the outsider card; insiders go bananas

Yes, I was shocked that President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, but not for the same reasons as the howling national media and the hypocritical Democratic establishment. I had long ago concluded that Comey had insulated himself from being fired because of his peculiar public role in the 2016 presidential election.[SNIP]What I didn’t count on was Trump’s absolute disdain for political correctness or conventional wisdom. He had to know the reaction that would follow from his decision to unceremoniously fire Comey, and yet he did it anyway. You almost have to think he did it on purpose just to unleash

I was minding my own business driving home from Libby last Monday when my peace was shattered by a collision — not with a deer as usually happens on that stretch of U.S. 2, but with the latest vitriolic, whiny complaints of self-important conservative talk-show host Mark Levin as he once again questioned the intelligence of President Trump.[SNIP]Like a bunch of liberals who also found fault with Trump’s commentary, Levin argued that the matters of secession and slavery were too complicated for mere mortal man to resolve.

On Wednesday, President Trump signed yet another executive order, and like most of them it was based on the concept of reining in government overreach — and as usual, his critics were howling mad. The “Presidential Executive Order on the Review of Designations Under the Antiquities Act” ordered Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke to “conduct a review of all Presidential designations or expansions of designations under the Antiquities Act {SNIP]The reaction from the left, predictably, was loud, swift and hysterical.The Western Values Project called the order a “public lands attack [that] silences rural America.” In fact, it is an effort

An internal civil war is tearing at the fabric of Fox News. The events of the past week have brought the long-simmering conflict closer to the surface. The legitimacy and viability of President Trump are under constant assault in the mainstream media as never before – and that is saying something. Fox News Channel executives, staff, and on air talent are taking sides. The future direction of the right-of-center, fair and balanced Fox News approach to presenting the news may well be in serious doubt.

Monday´s solar eclipse is already tying up traffic in areas along the path of totality, or the vein of regions along the US where people can view the full eclipse. Oregonians so far are seeing the brunt of the traffic as revelers have started pouring into central Oregon, clogging roadways and draining gas supplies in rural towns, all in hopes of catching the full splendor of this once in a lifetime celestial event.

WASHINGTON – Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) said many federal employees are leaving the Environmental Protection Agency and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration over “fear” that the Trump administration is going to “suppress their viewpoints” or move them to irrelevant positions. Beyer, ranking member of the House Science, Space and Technology Subcommittee on Oversight, was asked if he would have full access to the “unfiltered” final version of the latest federal government report on climate change. The New York Times published a leaked draft of the report, which was submitted to the Trump administration for review. “The majority members of my committee may

Lee after it was vandalized earlier this week. “I took this course of action to protect Duke Chapel, to ensure the vital safety of students and community members who worship there, and above all to express the deep and abiding values of our university,” President Vincent Price said in a statement released Saturday morning. “The removal also presents an opportunity for us to learn and heal,” Price said, adding that the statue will be preserved so students “can study Duke’s complex past

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement today declaring her support for the Congress to pass a resolution censuring President Donald Trump for “the repulsiveness” of his “words and actions.” “Every day, the president gives us further evidence of why such a censure is necessary,” said Pelosi. The censure resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives today by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.), Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D.-N.J.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D.-Wash.). The resolution immediately gathered 77 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats. “The President’s remarks following the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend are a moral outrage,”

I just did something fascinating. I just watched the President’s entire 14-minute impromptu news conference at Trump Tower on Monday that sparked all the latest barrage of anti-Trump screeds from the left media that will criticize him every day, no matter what he does, augmented by the “Never Trump” Republicans and neo-conservatives who will not rest until they can re-conquer the political party they lost because of three terms of two failed Bush presidencies, followed by the two failed Presidential candidacies of Sen. John McCain and of Gov. Mitt Romney. Not the reportage about the conference, but the entire 14 minutes

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin. Instead, he is more likely to have stirred up a whirlwind, which will sink his party even further in the voters’ eyes. Led by Charlottesville Deputy Mayor Wes Bellamy (a McAuliffe appointee to the local school board now on leave for racist, sexist, homophobic tweets, the city council narrowly approved removing a statue of Robert E.

NEW YORK -- A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL. Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color. He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so

Ever since Six Flags opened in 1961, the six flags that have flown over Texas have been a staple of the park.No more. As of Friday morning, the five flags other than the United States flag — representing Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas and the Confederacy — are being left to the history books.The park received criticism following last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., from TMZ, Fox News and others for flying the Confederate states flag. As a result, Six Flags Over Texas decided to take down all but the U.S. flag.
