After an Australian academic website called The Conversation tweeted “it’s time to ban climate denial” in the media, UC-Boulder Professor Roger Pielke, Jr., weighed in to show the consequences of such censorship. Pielke is a political scientist who actually argues human-caused climate change is “real and poses significant risks.” He’s also argued for decarbonization. However, he often criticizes bad science promoted by the news media or pushed by climate alarmists.
For those of you hoping that the absurd politically correct word "Latinx" would be laughed out of existence, no such luck. In fact the left continues to promote the the silly word which basically says that the Spanish language is not PC because so many of its words have endings that indicate gender such as "Latino" or "Latina." The solution is to add an "x" at the end of many such words but with the "x" pronounced the way it is in English rather than Spanish, "equis."
Objectivity and truth-telling are no longer the most “sacred” responsibilities of the news media, at least according to the far-left The Nation magazine. It’s now … climate change. “We see Covering Climate Now as a fulfillment of journalism’s most sacred responsibilities, which are to inform people and foster constructive debate about common challenges and opportunities,” The Nation wrote on Aug. 28.
Although Chris Cuomo and his employer insist that calling someone 'Fredo' is an ethnic slur on a par with the n-word, even Vox takes exception to such a comparison. On Tuesday, Vox culture staff writer Alissa Wilkinson weighed in on this topic and came down very definitely on the side of no ethnic slur represented by "Fredo."
Global demand for air travel is rising, so Vox celebrated a way to shame passengers for flying because of climate change for the second time in a week. Vox staff writer Umair Irfan promoted the “global flying shame movement” and a new website, Shame Plane, on August 7. Swedish digital designer Victor Müller and developer Dennis Mårtensson created the site to guilt-trip travelers over the carbon emissions of their flights. Inspired by Swedish climate-change activist Greta Thunberg, Müller initially crunched the numbers because of “his own anxieties about climate change,” and found his flight carbon footprint “shocking and paralyzing.” Irfan wrote another article about the Swedish flight shaming movement less than a week earlier.
The truth is coming out. Soccer firebrand Megan Rapinoe is not the poor little victim of presidential bullying that her media enablers have been making her out to be. In a Vox Recode interview with Kara Swisher she goes to the extreme of claiming membership in the "Squad" as a victim of President Trump's bullying. Trying to have it both ways, Rapinoe tells Swisher that Trump's tweets made her famous and spurred Team USA onto World Cup victory.
Did you ever think you’d see the day when the president of Planned Parenthood would be fired for being insufficiently woke? Apparently that was a factor in the early termination of Dr. Leana Wen’s eight month presidency on Tuesday. Wen got canceled for violating intersectional politics by supposedly not being radically pro-abortion enough, using transphobic language, and driving out black female employees.
A writer for the organization that has been at the forefront of censoring conservative channels on YouTube has proclaimed that the charge that conservative voices have been suppressed on social media is a "baseless theory." This is akin to Colonel Sanders denying that there is such a thing as chicken slaughter.
The media that eagerly cry “sexism” openly advocates for its own brand of sexism. In a Vox interview posted on July 2nd, advice columnist E. Jean Carroll stated that “the world is a very, very merry place without men.” According to Carroll, who has also recently accused President Donald Trump of rape, men are so terrible that they should be sent to a “secret place” for “special retraining” while women are left to rule the world.
White people are damned if they do, damned if they don’t. According to a June 1 Vox article by Dylan Matthews, white people are racist because they do not give enough money to minorities, but they are also racist for giving too much.
Taylor Swift may have stirred up some “Bad Blood” with social justice warriors for not being sufficiently woke in her new pro-LGBT song. On Friday the pop star released the lyric video to the single “You Need to Calm Down” and on Monday she released the official music video which appears to take place in a gay, rainbow-themed trailer park and features dozens of (mostly) LGBT celebrity cameos.
Progressives “f*cking love science!” Really, they never tire of telling us that. Except when unborn babies are involved. Or dopey spiritualism. From silly daily horoscopes to public hexes against the President, the world of spiritual energy and incantations thought to be left behind in pagan Europe has now captured the imagination of the fastest growing “religious” group in America -- the “nones.” However, this acceptance of the occult seems more like a club against traditional Judeo-Christianity than a legitimate faith-based system of beliefs.
