Who needs facts when we have race?

Today’s politically correct notion of justice requires, nay demands, that we ignore any facts of the matter except where they can be construed to support accusations of racism. Our Race baiting media need not worry about what actually happened. When does a minority (in this case an Hispanic man) become white? When a black man is killed.

Rushing to do things “on our behalf”

Citing ‘Hungry, Frustrated Children,’ Another District Drops Michelle Obama’s Lunch Menu
July 11, 2013 by Kyle Olson

Wouldn’t it be great if the government actually knew what they were doing when trying to help us, rather than experiment with untested fads? One might begin to wonder if the purpose of the new school lunch standards was really about control rather than about helping kids. Where are the studies on this lunch program that warned about these pitiful results, or was that never even considered beforehand?

Human parasites again, when will we ever learn?

N.Y. Times Columnist Hopes for More Voices Proudly Rejoicing When ‘Parasitic’ Babies Are Aborted
July 10, 2013 by Matt Vespa

Imagine, if you will, a politician or member of the media stating outright that welfare recipients are parasites. That would be difficult since American politicians and news professionals don’t speak like this. That doesn’t stop members of the political right being accused of saying or believing such things. When making wild accusations one need not look at the facts, or even the actual comments made. The accusation itself is sufficient to castigate and ridicule the entirety of the political right. I would call this the Dan Rather method of thought: evidence for the accusation may be proven fraudulent, but “we know it’s still true” anyway is the excuse. And ridicule is the response, against the accused, not against the accusers who cannot or will not distinguish between reality and their own hype. Comments degrading a group of people are considered such a heinous thing, that we must deal with such lack of compassion in immediate and no uncertain terms.

Now, contrast this common left wing reaction with this statement:

By monday my hormones were a little wonky but in all i just felt like this parasitic creature that burrowed its way into me and fed of my energy, apetite, [sic] and joy was removed. And I had been restored.

That comment was made by a woman publicly stating how proud she was of having an abortion. I don’t think such comments would be politically correct in any other context, except when speaking of Republicans, Christians, or just conservatives in general.

There is a profound difference between people accused of believing one group or another are just parasites, and people who actually admit they think like this. There are some in the past who spoke of blacks or Jews in such inhuman terms. Yet, these progressive and enlightened members of our modern society make the same moral mistake all over again. And they are becoming just as proud about it as their predecessors were.

CO2 emmissions cause greening in desserts

Deserts ‘greening’ from rising CO2
July 8, 2013 by Anthony Watts

Increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) have helped boost green foliage across the world’s arid regions over the past 30 years through a process called CO2 fertilisation, according to CSIRO research.

In findings based on satellite observations, CSIRO, in collaboration with the Australian National University (ANU), found that this CO2 fertilisation correlated with an 11 per cent increase in foliage cover from 1982-2010 across parts of the arid areas studied in Australia, North America, the Middle East and Africa, according to CSIRO research scientist, Dr Randall Donohue.

Blatant scholarly obstruction from a public university

Murray Salby, former professor at Macquarie University in Australia, has published a 20 point critique of Macquarie’s behavior regarding climate change research. Salby claims the university’s behavior involves luring him to relocate to Australia, denying to fulfill their obligations of a prearranged contract, obstructing Salby’s public presentations, interfering with the work of one of Salby’s students, and much more. It’s almost as if Macquarie University planned from the beginning to obstruct Salby’s research before even inviting him to work there.

Do pluralism and a desire for open society end in oppression?

If pluralism and an open society are such important goals to the U.S. Department of Justice why not require all immigrants to learn English?

DOJ: Governments can punish homeschoolers
July 2, 2013 Bob Unruh

The U.S. Department of Justice has revealed in a court filing it agrees with the philosophy of the German government that bureaucrats can punish homeschooling parents.

The agency contended parental rights to keep children free from instruction that violates faith essentially are negligible when the government’s goal is an “open society.”

“The goal in Germany is for an ‘open, pluralistic society,’” wrote the government’s pleading, signed by Senior Litigation Counsel Robert N. Markle in Washington.

German law, he argued, requires attendance at government schools, and punishment is levied against anyone failing to comply, even due to religious objections.

His argument to the appellate court cited a German court decision, which stated: “The general public has a justified interest in counteracting the development of religiously or philosophically motivated ‘parallel societies’ and in integrating minorities in this area. Integration does not only require that the majority of the population does not exclude religious or ideological minorities, but, in fact, that these minorities do not segregate themselves and that they do not close themselves off to a dialogue with dissenters and people of other beliefs.

The German Supreme Court said that because of the issue of socialization, the state, not parents, decides how children are educated.
