Some very strange views on discrimination

Anything new in the world of delusion?

In a new poll released by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) on Tuesday, a whopping 43 percent of Americans told researchers that discrimination against whites has become as large a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minority groups. And an even bigger share of Americans — 53 percent — told pollsters American culture and “way of life” have mostly changed for the worse since 1950.

Do they even have a clue of what life was like in the 1950s and earlier?


Are they offended because they can’t do this openly anymore?


Are they saying this is not as bad as what they are experiencing today?


Who exactly is saying that discrimination against whites has become as large a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minority groups?


So, it’s the usual suspects.

Attacks in Paris

The news out of Paris is horrific. Religious fanatics with guns and bombs have killed at least 120 people. It’s an attack by Islamic State psychopaths.

The best television news coverage has been on France 24.

President Francois Holland gave this speech soon after the attack on the Stade de France, where he was one of the fans at a football match between France and Germany:

And President Obama had this to say from the White House:

But the French are in solidarity. Football fans sang the national anthem as they left the Stade de France after the attacks:

And, of course, someone stupid has something disgusting to say about it all.


Peace in our time

Armed conflict seems to be the preferred means of dealing with international issues by at least one political party in the U.S. But, as the narrator says in this video, “That’s so 20th century.”

And yes, the video is correct about King Leopold II of Belgium. He was a war criminal, even though he never declared war on the Congo. He ranks up there with Hitler and Stalin in mass murder, and no one seems to know that. Read “King Leopold’s Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror, and Heroism in Colonial Africa” by Adam Hochschild for a fascinating history on the evil of colonialism.

When guns are outlawed, fewer babies will have guns

Especially since this year they’ve been handling them a lot more than they should be:


Toddler means kids age 3 and under. This represents 43 babies who have either killed or wounded someone (most likely themselves) with a gun as of Oct. 14. That also means the number of toddlers firing guns is higher, since no one is going to report such an incident if no one is hurt. And when they get older and understand a gun can hurt someone, this happens:

Funeral services are set for an 8-year-old East Tennessee girl was reportedly shot and killed by an 11-year-old boy.

Witnesses say MaKayla Dyer was talking to the boy through a window.

The boy asked to see her puppy, and she said no and laughed.

As Dyer was about to walk away, witnesses said the boy pointed a shotgun at Dyer and fired.

Make no mistake, Americans have more guns than we need:



An extra passenger, mid-flight

I don’t know how you can be this pregnant and think a 19-hour flight from Taiwan to Los Angeles is a good idea.

The focus of the story, though is about the doctor:

A Los Angeles doctor on an overseas flight was coming home from her honeymoon when she delivered a baby on the plane.

While 30,000 feet in the air, the mother went into labor six hours into a China Air flight from Taiwan to Los Angeles.

Flight attendants asked if there was a doctor on board when UCLA resident physician Dr. Angelica Zen and her husband were on their way back from their honeymoon in Bali.

“My training is in internal medicine pediatrics so we do adults and kids but really no pregnant woman at all, so since my training we haven’t done much OBGYN,” said Zen. “I was a little bit nervous.”

Zen had never delivered a baby by herself, but she didn’t hesitate to help.

Good thing the doctor was on board, but again, how do you decide to fly 19 hours when you’re that pregnant.

The story says the flight diverted to Alaska and hints that the baby would be an American citizen (the parents are Chinese) since the plane was in U.S. airspace. Are Donald Trump and Jeb Bush watching. Sounds like one of their anchor baby scenarios?

But I saw an episode of “Bones” (the TV series about the hot forensic pathologist with a personality disorder) that involved an oven murder on a U.S. carrier’s flight to China. The resolution was that since the plane was American territory, Booth, an FBI agent, could arrest the murderer and take him back to the U.S. instead of handing the guy over to Chinese authorities.

So by “Bones” logic, the baby is Chinese since the plane is Chinese territory.

I mean, TV crime shows wouldn’t lie to me about jurisdictions, would they?

Remember when Africans immigrated to the U.S. as workers on plantations?

Because that’s what textbooks are teaching children:

1460786346572746530Of course, this was found in a Texas textbook, but the book is used throughout the country:

In a section titled “Patterns of Immigration,” a speech bubble pointing to a U.S. map read: “The Atlantic Slave Trade between the 1500s and 1800s brought millions of workers from Africa to the southern United States to work on agricultural plantations.” …

One parent posted the atrocity to Facebook:

In calling slaves “workers” and their move to the United States “immigration,” she noted in viral Facebook posts Wednesday and Thursday, the textbook suggests not only that her African American ancestors arrived on the continent willingly, but also that they were compensated for their labor.

Immigration? Workers? How about “Kidnapped millions who were crammed in horrid conditions on a boat across the ocean.” And “sold into slavery”?
