No, this is not from ‘The Onion.” And I don’t think Asian salad actually has onions in it, but, yep, it’s racist. Via Free Beacon. A New York Times op-ed published Thursday night denounced the existence of Asian salad and called on restaurants to remove the “racist” dish from their menus. “Why Is Asian Salad Still on the Menu?” asked Bonnie Tsui, complaining that the common offering was “something created in the name of Asians by non-Asians [and] has become a touchstone for non-Asians.” The impetus for the piece was when Tsui came across an “Asian Emperor Salad” on the menu at a San Francisco bar…. Tsui admits that other cultures–like the Greeks–have a salad named after them. “And yet...

You know what’s really racist? Coddling students who display a poor understanding of what it takes to succeed in the workplace, such as showing up to an interview on time, and speaking correct English, not “Ebonics.” Via Daily Caller. Clemson University has allocated nearly $27,000 on diversity training materials for professors. The taxpayer-funded school in South Carolina purchased the online training materials from an outside vendor, reports Campus Reform. The training materials are a series of slides depicting scenarios with fictional characters. One slide features a guy named Alejandro who plans a meeting between two groups. Each group contains foreign professors and students. One group shows up 15 minutes early. The second group shows up 10 minutes late. A question-and-answer...

And we wonder why college graduates are living in their parents’ basements as they search for more safe spaces. At this point, with a few exceptions, the academy has devolved into being a factory for unemployable leftist agitators. and it appears you get a pass on actually competing if you were at Obama’s White House and stood next to Hillary. If we’re going to get the US turned around, we have got to get our university system out of the leftist quicksand. Via Washington Times. Stanford University admitted a Muslim teenager who wrote the phrase “#BlackLivesMatter” 100 times in his application essay. Ziad Ahmed, a senior at the Princeton Day School in Princeton, New Jersey, said he was surprised the...

Sure, and Hillary wants to bring in at least another 500,000 of these “refugees” to our country. Yet some people say Hillary is the better candidate for women. Got it. Via Fox News World. A wheelchair-bound woman was gang raped by six asylum seekers, Swedish police have said. The unnamed disabled woman had asked to use a toilet at a nearby asylum center after sharing a taxi with one of its residents. But after she was invited inside, the woman, in her 30s, was attacked by the man and six of his fellow migrants. A furious group of more than 100 Swedes have since attacked the centre in Visby, pelting it with rocks. The victim’s lawyer Staffan Fredriksson told local...

It’s bad enough to have to deal with the fact there’s a war on cops on this country, and another thing altogether when a fire chief, of all people, caves to political correctness and orders the removal of a police flag. Via Todd Starnes at Fox News. A group of firefighters in Riverside County, California wanted to honor police officers killed in Baton Rouge and Dallas. So firefighter Eric Hille decided to display a pro-police flag on one of the fire engines at Sunnymead Ranch Station 48. You’ve probably seen the flag — it’s black and white with a blue stripe through the middle — symbolizing the “thin blue line.” He posted the flag on July 17 — just a...

He’s right of course. Every day it become more clear we need radical change. Because we’re tired of being on a suicide mission so liberals can keep pretending they’re not destroying western civilization.

If you don’t mind the smug arrogance of this jerk, then stay home on Election Day, or do a write-in vote for Ann Romney. Because with Hillary, we will have more of this insanity. HT Weasel Zippers.

This is how political correctness is killing us. In any other normal environment, anyone making a terrorist threat would be hauled off. But not anymore. And at the airport no less! She’s allowed to wander around LAX for two hours, and only then is she escorted from the premises. Who is this woman? A citizen? A tourist? Will anyone in the legacy media care to find out? I did a cursory search on Google and in News and found good conservative blog coverage but not much else. Thanks goodness for New Media because without the internet, well, we’d be even more screwed than we are right now. Yeah, it’s past time to stop this nonsense. Via Townhall. In a bizarre...

Just a tad hypocritical considering all the Christian bashing the talking-head left is engaging in since the Orlando atrocity. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of this crap. Via Reuters. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday warned Americans against pointing a finger at one religion or another after a gunman who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group massacred 49 people at a gay night club in Orlando. “The worst thing we can do is engage in trying to point fingers at one group or one form of sectarianism or another or one religion or another. Those are not the values of our country,” Kerry told reporters as he posed for pictures before a...

I can’t wait for the menace of this administration to get out. It’s like being run by a gang of children running with scissors. Via Fox News. American special operations troops were not authorized to wear the patches of Kurdish forces while advising them in Syria and have been told to remove them, the U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad said Friday, after Turkish leaders protested. Army Col. Steve Warren said that while U.S. special operations forces have historically and routinely worn the insignia of foreign troops they are working with, this case was not appropriate due largely to political sensitivities. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said it was “unacceptable” for soldiers of a Turkish ally to use the patches of...

For good reason– because it’s accurate. Via The Hill. The House of Representatives wants to require the Library of Congress to refer to foreigners as “aliens” and undocumented immigration as “illegal.” The House Appropriations Committee released its $3.5B 2017 legislative spending report Monday. It included this instruction to the Library: “To the extent practicable, the Committee instructs the Library to maintain certain subject headings that reflect terminology used in title 8, United States Code.” Title 8 of the United States Code refers to “Aliens and Nationality,” and defines the term “alien” as “any person not a citizen or national of the United States.” In March, the Library announced it would stop using the terms to refer to foreign nationals, switching...

Dude should’ve shouted Aloha Snackbar? Via Telegraph. A police chief has been forced to apologise for featuring a fake Muslim shouting “Allahu Akbar” in a major counter terrorism training exercise against Isil. The exercise had depicted a suicide bomber detonating explosives and opening fire in the middle of a busy shopping mall. But critics claimed the depiction of the terrorist “stereotyped” Muslims during the mock up at the Trafford Centre, near Manchester which was aimed at testing the emergency response to an extremist attack in the wake of ISIS led assaults on Paris and Brussels…. “The scenario for this exercise is based on a suicide attack by extremist Daesh style organization and the scenario writers have centred the circumstances around...

Don’t let the elevator take… him… down… Oh no, let’s go, crazy! Via Hollywood Reporter. A Nashville reporter attempted to work in his love of Prince with his sports rundown and the result was his termination, he claims. Dan Phillips, who worked at WZTV Fox-17, announced on Friday via social media that he had been fired from the station because some viewers and management found his April 21 report “insensitive.” Phillips mixed Prince lyrics into his sports segment that day — the same day the legendary musician was found dead in his Minnesota home. Prince was 57. “First of all, I want to thank everyone for the kind words, comments and positive feedback on this tribute I did to Prince...

Awful. But the entire premise of taking in 12 people when millions are displaced because of Islamist mass murder and war is itself absurd and, well, theatre. Help for Christians, in the midst of an actually declared genocide, there are gestures but no real help and even abandonment by
politicians of all stripes.

A British city council sent a letter to parents of children entering the school system asking them to support the gender their children “most identify with”. It’s a multiple choice. Another city council in Brighton sent home a gender survey with 23 options. But the children will have only two options for uniforms, a full tweed blazer, tie and trousers or a skirt, bolero jaket and blouse. Parents asked to help their 4-year-olds choose their gender Brighton & Hove City Council’s lead member for equalities, Councillor Emma Daniel defended the move, saying that the additional text about gender identity was “in response to calls from families, young people and schools to show an inclusive approach to gender”. Perhaps 23 options...
