Time in London gets you women groped stories, not time zone information or something practical, that's hilarious.

Aloha!

You can write "Time in London +xxpm/am" to get the local time for that time.

So you can say on google Time in london +5pm and it will tell you what the local time for you is when it's 5pm in london. I found you can do this with all cities and also time zones.

If you're using Windows and want to screenshot, just Ctrl + Print Screen. Then open up Paint and click "Paste". Then crop or whatever and save.

Today, Polish Parliament propsed a bill that would make illegal to say that Poland aided Germany in commiting world war crimes. The Israel politics stood against it.

The term "polish death camps" appeared over six hundred times in last six years. It was used in 35 countries around the world. The most in USA, UK and Gemrany. Statistics from Polish Foreign Affairs.

link

Quote:Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has criticised a proposed bill that would make it illegal to describe Nazi death camps as Polish.

"I strongly oppose it. One cannot change history and the Holocaust cannot be denied," he said in a statement.

Under the bill, which is an amendment to an existing Polish law, anyone who suggests Poland was responsible for Nazi crimes could face a prison term.

It is expected to pass in the Senate before being signed by the president.

The Polish charge d'affaires to Israel has been summoned by the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

Poland was attacked and occupied by Nazi Germany during World War Two. Millions of its citizens were killed, including three million Polish Jews in the Holocaust.

The country has long objected to the use of phrases like "Polish death camps", which suggest the Polish state in some way shared responsibility for camps such as Auschwitz.

I've followed the news somewhat on that.

The reason for Polish government to do this is based on Jewish groups trying to get up to 60 bio. $ in reparations for Poland's supposed role in the Holocoust as well as for the property lost during WWII. And well know that the lobby is very powerful - they can exert massive pressure.

The globalist media prepared the groundwork for this push by always speaking about the "Polish" camps - guess they should talk about the Adolf Hitler Main square in Krakow or how the streets were re-named back then. It's all a bunch of Nazis there - especially since they don't want Muslim refugees - that should be apparent now.

This is insane. I had no idea about it. All one has to do is look at a random MSM article to observe this double speak.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worl...8fc83bcc5b

Quote:Even though several death camps, including the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau, were built on Polish soil, Poles say they should be referred to as Nazi extermination camps or camps in occupied Poland, disassociating Poland from the Nazi crimes committed there.

Israelis, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reacted furiously to the law, seeing it as an attempt by Poland to re-write history and even deny the Holocaust.

“One cannot change history and the Holocaust cannot be denied,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement.

Somebody mind telling me how these paragraphs make sense together? Cue the Goebbels and Mein Kampf quotes.

California Bill Would Jail and Fine Waiters Who Offer ‘Unsolicited’ Plastic Straws

Quote:A group of California legislators wants to punish waiters who offer “unsolicited” plastic straws to customers with a six-month jail sentence and a $1,000 fine.
Democratic California Assembly Majority Floor Leader Ian Calderon has introduced a bill that could put waiters in jail for offering their patrons a plastic straw without them asking for one.

“This bill would prohibit a food facility, as specified, where food may be consumed on the premises from providing single-use plastic straws to consumers unless requested by the consumer,” the bill reads. “By creating a new crime and imposing additional enforcement duties on local health agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.”

“Existing law requires, except as otherwise provided, a person who violates any provision of the code to be guilty of a misdemeanor with each offense punishable by a fine of not less than $25 or more than $1,000, or by imprisonment in the county jail for a term not exceeding 6 months, or by both,” it states.

Calderon estimated that Americans use 500 million plastic straws per day. A report on the bill from Reason revealed that the estimate came from a 2011 survey conducted by then 9-year-old Milo Cress. Cress calculated the number by calling straw manufacturers.

In a press release, Calderon explained that the bill is motivated by a push to create greater awareness about the effects of plastic straws on the environment.

“We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” Calderon said in the release. “AB 1884 is not ban on plastic straws. It is a small step towards curbing our reliance on these convenience products, which will hopefully contribute to a change in consumer attitudes and usage.”

After intense scrutiny, Calderon issued a series of tweets that contradict with the text of his bill. Calderon claims now that the bill would not make serving plastic straws a crime. “I’d like to clarify that #AB1884 (Straws Upon Request) is (a) NOT a ban; (b) should it become law, it will NOT make it a crime for servers to provide plastic straws,” he wrote. “My intention is simply to raise awareness about the detrimental effects of plastic straws on our environment.”





Florida + Politics = California

"Look at this unbelievably crazy, insane and hilariously stupid piece of new legislation, who w..."

"Say no more! California?"

This is all part of Agenda 21 - you have not seen anything yet. Electric cars are a joke to most, but wait when they have simply banned any other cars but electric, then it's stopped being funny. The same goes for climate change taxes and all those green-zones where roads are no longer maintained.

It's the wonderful Hunger Games model.

Detroit gives a business priority police response if they spend a bunch of money with them, pay their partner for cloud storage, and pipe video feeds directly into the police headquarters.

Orwellian:

Quote:Mayor Mike Duggan's administration is moving forward with a plan to eventually mandate every retail business in Detroit with late-night hours have surveillance cameras tied into Project Green Light, the Detroit Police Department's real-time crime monitoring system credited with a decrease in carjackings and overall crime around participating businesses.

In an interview Wednesday with Crain's, Duggan said he will ask City Council later this year to mandate Project Green Light high-definition video systems for all retail businesses open after 10 p.m.

Duggan said the city will start with requiring the camera systems for bars, restaurants, gas stations and other businesses open between midnight and 4 a.m. during the "highest risk" time for crimes to occur. Then the city will move to businesses open after 10 p.m., he said.

The mandate could affect as many as 4,000 businesses open after 10 p.m., though the mayor said the video surveillance systems would be phased in because the Green Light Program already has a backlog of voluntary participants and a shortage of installers.

"I think the votes on council are there now," Duggan said. "But there's no point of making it mandatory if we haven't finished the backlog of voluntary (businesses)."

Since January 2016, about 230 businesses in Detroit have voluntarily signed up with the city to have Comcast Business install video surveillance systems inside and outside of their businesses that are marked with an exterior green light that's meant to let would-be criminals know they're being recorded.

CCTV in todays world is brilliant and useful for car crash, theft and finding out which bastard keeps having their dog take a huge shit on your lawn. What it cannot and probably never will do is prevent violent crime or any crime happening there and then if the perp wills it.

Its all well saying we will catch this and "do you know this man?" after some woman was raped or somebody was murdered. A camera will not stop that shit. Only police presence and a working justice system can reduce crime.

The latter particularly, and by "a working justice system" you would have to imply "sentencing that favours community safety over rehabilitation."

CCTV nations are a joke, because they can routinely catch the criminal but the only way he's going to spend serious time behind bars is if he dropped a ham sandwich in front of a mosque.

Foreign policy is the one area of Trump's policy I truly depart with him on. When it comes to foreign policy I'm closer to Tulsi Gabbard and Rand Paul than probably any other politician. Trump's foreign policy too often mirrors the neocon chickenhawk playbook of the past 25 years. Nikki Lena is an odious presence in this regard.

Quote:"St. Gregory of Nyssa devotes a special treatise to the 'Life of Moses', in which the assent of Mount Sinai towards the darkness of incomprehensibility represents the way of contemplation, superior to Moses' first meeting with God when appeared to him in the burning bush. Then Moses saw God in light; now he enters the darkness, leaving behind him all that can be seen or know; there remains to him only the invisible and unknowable, but in this darkness is God."

Fusion GPS Founder Unhinged: Putin Uses Jews to Control the World

Quote:Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS, espoused a conspiracy theory claiming that Vladimir Putin “essentially took over the Russian Jewish community” and that Putin uses “the Jewish Diaspora” as a route for Russian influence.
Simpson’s outlandish claim was made during testimony on November 14 before the House Select Committee on Intelligence, a transcript of which was released two weeks ago. His statements, which arguably contain anti-Semitic undertones, were almost entirely ignored by the news media.


The claims may offer a window into the conspiratorial thinking of the firm behind the infamous, largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier alleging unsubstantiated collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

During testimony, Simpson stated, “I am sort of thinking back to one of the other questions that Congressman Schiff asked about, things to look at.” Simpson was referring to requests from Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who repeatedly asked the Fusion GPS co-founder during the testimony for recommendations of whom to subpoena or items to investigate as part of the Russia collusion probe.

Simpson then delved into his Putin-Jewish conspiracy. “And it’s kind of an uncomfortable — I don’t know really how to put it, but there is a lot of — Putin seems to be very interested in the Jewish Diaspora.”


“And there seems to be, especially, the sort of Orthodox or ultra-religious or conservative, and there is a definitely something interesting to all that,” Simpson stated. “Chabad, in particular, is a subject that is curious and interesting.”

“And Putin essentially took over the Russian Jewish community and the leadership of the Russian Jewish community. And appears, for reasons I can’t fully explain to be – this appears to be a very interesting route for the Russians.”

“And again, I think there are many routes for the Russians,” he added. “They use trade groups, they use ethnic association groups, and at least and they use religious groups.”

The anti-Trump dossier itself claims the Russian FSB intelligence agency was engaged in attempts to approach “U.S. citizens of Russian (Jewish) origin on business trips to Russia” to utilize as agents.

Simpson did not substantiate his allegations, and he did not explain his singling out of Chabad as a “subject that is curious and interesting.”

Far from Russia centric, Chabad, also known as Lubavitch, is a worldwide Orthodox Jewish movement that has more than 3,500 institutions in over 1,000 cities in more than 100 countries.

The organization has 1,000 centers across all 50 states and Canada; it is the largest Jewish organization not only in Russia, but in Ukraine and France also.

The main goal of Chabad, headquartered in New York, is to strengthen the ties of Jewish people to Judaism. Chabad is known to not involve itself in politics.

Chabad-Lubavitch leaders and followers were persecuted under the communist regime in the Soviet Union due to the Soviets’ opposition to organized religious life. Still, Chabad managed to function underground, working to strengthen Judaism within the country. That perseverance exacted a heavy toll, resulting in the arrest, imprisonment, and torture of scores of Lubavitchers.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, Chabad was able to strengthen its communal Jewish work within Russia and has enjoyed a largely cordial relationship with the government under Vladimir Putin. Chabad, like other religious institutions, aims to maintain positive relationships with other nations where the group operates.

Last April, Politico featured an article attempting to draw associations between Chabad, Putin, and Trump, titled, “The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin.” The article singled out Chabad’s work in Russia, which is just one country where it operates. The piece attempted to connect Trump to Putin because Trump had a select few reported business and personal relationships with a handful of Jews with ties to Chabad.

After the article came out, Jonathan Zalman at Tablet magazine reported that he was told Simpson’s Fusion GPS was a source for the Politico story.

Politico’s Chabad story drew widespread criticism. Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, slammed the Politico article as “offensive on many levels.” Reacting on Twitter, Greenblatt continued, “Denigrating @Chabad or implying it is driving a conspiracy evokes age-old myths about #Jews”.

Writing at the Jewish Journal, Rabbi David Eliezrie of Chabad asserted the associations in the Politico article may amount to a “new kind of anti-Semitism.”

He opined:

"For centuries Jews would tremble before Passover, fearing a new blood libel that they were using Christian blood to bake matzahs. This went out style after the Mendel Beilis trial in 1914 in Czarist Russia. Next the Protocols of the Elders of Zion declared the Jews run the world. This too fell out a favor after the Holocaust. Now Politico has created a new version of the old story, only this time it’s not all Jews. The new kind of anti-Semitism is only against those guys in the black hats and the beards, the ultras, or Chassidim."

If Politico had done the most basic fact checking it would have discovered that Chabad is unique amongst major Jewish groups — it never gets involved in politics. While others are busy with press releases on everything from immigration to who should be the US Ambassador to Israel, Chabad never says a word.

Eliezer added sarcastically:

"Politico claims it’s the Chabad connections that cement the bond between Putin and Trump. But why stop there? The article could have revealed the true depth of the Chassidic conspiracy. It didn’t mention the links between Chabad and the Democrats. Former Obama Chief of Staff Jack Lew, an observant Jew, attended the same synagogue that the Kushners do. Bernie Sanders’ closest friend and college roommate is a Chabad Chassid, beard and all. And what about Hollywood? Steven Spielberg dedicated a Chabad synagogue in LA , Beis Bezalel, in memory of his stepfather. His late mother was a member there. Mark Zuckerberg was caught dancing with the Chabad Rabbi at Purim party in Harvard. It’s even the New York Times! Tom Friedman recently attended the wedding of his niece in the Chassidic bastion of Crown Heights in Brooklyn."

Writing at Tablet, author Lee Smith addressed Simpson’s remarks on Russian Jews during the House testimony:

"So we are to assume that in exchange for cash, Jews were helping to spy on America. Is it surprising that Russiagate would incorporate Jews into its narrative? No. There was zero chance that a conspiracy theorist like Simpson would not find a role for the Jews in his grand Trump-Russia collusion narrative."

In October, the Washington Post reported that in April 2016, attorney Marc E. Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained Fusion GPS to conduct the firm’s anti-Trump work on behalf of both Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Clinton’s campaign and the DNC both were clients of Perkins Coie.

The BBC reported that the information in the dossier served as a “roadmap” for the FBI’s investigation into claims of coordination between Moscow and members of Trump’s presidential campaign.

Last April, CNN reported that the dossier served as part of the FBI’s justification for seeking the FISA court’s reported approval to clandestinely monitor the communications of Carter Page, the American oil industry investor who was tangentially and briefly associated with Trump’s presidential campaign.

That purported FISA warrant is reportedly mentioned in a surveillance memo described as alleging FISA surveillance abuses under the Obama administration. On Monday night, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release the memo, giving Trump days to weigh in with any objections before the memo can be publicly released.


Reframing the Dem's Trump-Russia witch hunt as an anti-semitic conspiracy theory.

That would be hilarious.


Or maybe it's so far out there, it could actually contain a grain of truth?

Paging AB!

So Fidel Castro Jr. apparently commmited suicide
"after having a long bout of depression"....

RT article Wrote:Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart, the son of Cuba's revolutionary icon Fidel Castro has committed suicide after a battle with depression, Cuban state-run media has reported.
Diaz-Balart, 68, the oldest son among Fidel's many children, was being treated by a group of doctors for the depression he suffered in the final months of his life. Diaz-Balart was a doctor of sciences, the Vice President of the Academy of Sciences of Cuba, and served as scientific advisor to the Council of State.

Diaz-Balart was the only son of Fidel and his wife of seven years Mirta Diaz-Balart, who has survived both her late husband and son at 89.

[Image: 5a73c118fc7e93ba0d8b4567.jpg]

"Fidelito," as he was popularly known in Cuba, was the author of 11 books and over 150 scientific articles on nuclear physics, energy and its relation to environmental studies. In a 2013 interview with RT, he said his interest in the sciences was boosted by the revolution, and that he had studied nuclear physics in the former Soviet Union.

Diaz-Balart appeared on several of RT's programs. The son of the world's most famous revolutionary spoke out against the so-called color revolutions and military interventions masked as promoting democracy to people being “oppressed” by “regimes.”

“Nowadays, you can name whatever you want in a way convenient for your political strategy,” he told 'Worlds Apart' host Oksana Boyko.

Diaz-Balart believed in letting Cuba choose its own path, and rebuffed external criticism about the "slow pace" of Cuban reforms.

“We are used to receiving a receipt from outside. When something is not in place, it should be in place, when something is in place, it’s not enough, if it’s enough, it’s not so fast... The right way of changing things is the way the Cuban people are going to decide to do it.”

WATCH RT's last interview with late 'Fidelito' Castro, Fidel's eldest son

From 1980 to 1992, "Fidelito" was the head of Cuba's nuclear program and lead the efforts to construct a nuclear power plant. Construction froze in 1992, however, when funds ran out after financial arrangements with the now-collapsed Soviet Union were disrupted. Diaz-Balart made few public appearances after that.

His father Fidel, the icon of the Cuban Revolution that shaped the modern communist island state, died aged 90 just over a year ago in November 2016. Fidel served as Cuba's president for 32 years,

Someone in the comments section said that the depression was very likely caused by the idea that he was Justin Trudeau's half-brother lol

We move between light and shadow, mutually influencing and being influenced through shades of gray...

"Public School Social Justice Factory"

Quote:Inside a Public School Social Justice Factory
The city of Edina has changed the way it approaches public education, putting social justice above learning. The results will shock you.

For decades, the public schools of Edina, Minnesota, were the gold standard among the state’s school districts. Edina is an upscale suburb of Minneapolis, but virtually overnight, its reputation has changed. Academic rigor is unraveling, high school reading and math test scores are sliding, and students increasingly fear bullying and persecution.

The shift began in 2013, when Edina school leaders adopted the “All for All” strategic plan—a sweeping initiative that reordered the district’s mission from academic excellence for all students to “racial equity.”

“Equity” in this context does not mean “equality” or “fairness.” It means racial identity politics—an ideology that blames minority students’ academic challenges on institutional racial bias, repudiates Martin Luther King, Jr.’s color-blind ideal, and focuses on uprooting “white privilege.”

The Edina school district’s All for All plan mandated that henceforth “all teaching and learning experiences” would be viewed through the “lens of racial equity,” and that only “racially conscious” teachers and administrators should be hired. District leaders assured parents this would reduce Edina’s racial achievement gap, which they attributed to “barriers rooted in racial constructs and cultural misunderstandings.”

As a result, the school system’s obsession with “white privilege” now begins in kindergarten. At Edina’s Highlands Elementary School, for example, K-2 students participate in the Melanin Project. The children trace their hands, color them to reflect their skin tone, and place the cut-outs on a poster reading, “Stop thinking your skin color is better than anyone elses!-[sic] Everyone is special!”

Highlands Elementary’s new “racially conscious” elementary school principal runs a blog for the school’s community. On it, she approvingly posted pictures of Black Lives Matter propaganda and rainbow gay-pride flags—along with a picture of protesters holding a banner proclaiming “Gay Marriage Is Our Right.” On a more age-appropriate post, she recommended an A-B-C book for small children entitled A is for Activist. (Peruse the book and you find all sorts of solid-gold: “F is for Feminist,” “C is for…Creative Counter to Corporate Vultures,” and “T is for Trans.”)

At Edina High School, the equity agenda is the leading edge of a full-scale ideological reeducation campaign. A course description of an 11th-grade U.S. Literature and Composition course puts it this way: “By the end of the year, you will have . . . learned how to apply marxist [sic], feminist, post-colonial [and] psychoanalytical . . .lenses to literature.”

The primary vehicle in the indoctrination effort is a year-long English course—required of all 10th-graders—that centers, not on reading literature and enhancing writing skills, but on the politicized themes of “Colonization,” “Immigration” and “Social Constructions of Race, Class and Gender.”

One student characterized the course this way on the “Rate My Teachers” website: “This class should be renamed . . . ‘Why white males are bad, and how oppressive they are.’” (The negative review has since been deleted from Edina High’s “Rate My Teachers” page; but this is a screenshot from before it was memory-holed.)

[Image: 20180201%20KERSTEN%20on%20Edina%20EMBED%20PHOTO.jpg]

Increasingly, families who are serious about education are leaving the Edina schools. For example, Orlando Flores and his wife pulled their son—an academic superstar—out of Edina High School in his senior year to escape its hyper-political environment.

Flores, who fled a Marxist regime in Nicaragua as a child, had this to say: “Years ago, we fled Communism to escape indoctrination, absolutist thinking and restrictions on our freedom of speech. If we see these traits in our schools in America, we must speak out and oppose it.”

Flores says that when his son was at Edina High, teachers routinely pushed politicians and political positions they favored, shamed and browbeat students with dissenting views, and forced them to defend themselves against baseless allegations of racism. According to his son, he says, classroom discussions were often “one-sided indoctrination sessions,” and students feared their grades would be penalized if they spoke out.

The final straw for the Flores family occurred when an English teacher subjected their son and a classmate to a lengthy, humiliating and ideologically charged grilling—unlike that faced by other students—after the boys made a presentation with which she disagreed following racially-charged incidents in Ferguson, Missouri.

When Flores’ son requested an apology, school authorities indignantly took the teacher’s side, says Flores. Fearing retaliation, the boy asked to transfer to another English class. There, a student teacher informed the class they would not be reading classic books because “dead white men are boring,” according to Flores.

Flores believes that “Race and racism should be discussed” at school. But “relentlessly obsessing about race—pretending it’s the only thing that matters—is counterproductive and harmful to everyone,” he says.

Like Edina students, the district’s faculty and staff must submit to racial equity re-education.

One such mandatory session for school bus drivers is illustrative. The widow of a bus driver who had been required to attend the training sent the entire 25-page instructional curriculum to Center of the American Experiment, where I am a senior policy fellow.

The training session was entitled “Edina School DIstrict Equity and Racial Justice Training: Moving from a Diversity to a Social Justice Lens.” In it, trainers instructed bus drivers that “dismantling white privilege” is “the core of our work as white folks,” and that working for the Edina schools requires “a major paradigm shift in the thinking of white people.” Drivers were exhorted to confess their racial guilt, and embrace the district’s “equity” ideology.

The result of all of this? Four years into the Edina schools’ equity crusade, black students’ test scores continue to disappoint. There’s been a single positive point of data: Black students’ reading scores—all ages, all grades—have slightly increased, from 45.5 percent proficiency in 2014 to 46.4 percent proficiency in 2017.

But other than that, the news is all bad. Black students “on track for success” in reading decreased from 48.1 percent in 2014 to 44.9 percent in 2017. Math scores decreased from 49.6 percent proficiency in 2014 to 47.4 percent in 2017. Black students “on track for success” in math decreased from 51.4 percent in 2014 to 44.7 percent in 2017.

The drop was most notable at the high school level. Math scores for black students in 11th grade at Edina Senior High dropped from 31 percent proficiency in 2014 to 14.6 percent in 2017. In reading, scores for black students in 10th grade at Edina Senior High dropped from 51.7 percent proficiency in 2014 to 40 percent in 2017.
* * *

Recently, conservative students at Edina High School filed a federal lawsuit, claiming the district has violated its members’ rights of free speech and association.

The suit grew out of events following a Veteran’s Day assembly in the high school gym on November 9, 2017. There, a group of veterans spoke about their military service, and the school band played the National Anthem and Taps. During the music, some black students “protested” by refusing to stand, slouching by the bleachers, talking loudly, and blaring music on their cell phones.

Members of the school’s unofficial Young Conservatives Club (YCC) responded by criticizing the protesters’ behavior, at school and on social media. In response, the protesters and their allies harassed the conservative students, with groups “as large as 30 students . . . daily surrounding club members and threatening to injure them if they did not change their political views,” according to the lawsuit complaint. In addition, a group styling itself the “Edina High School Anti-Fascists” posted a threatening YouTube video aimed at the YCC, which declared, “[W]e will not stop until every tentacle of your evil monstrosity is sliced off at the nerve.”

When the conservative students complained, the school’s principal “responded to their security concerns by saying that [they had] brought it upon themselves by criticizing the protests” at the Veterans Day program, according to the complaint.

The principal disbanded the YCC after pressuring its president to show him texts its members had sent one another about these incidents on the club’s private GroupMe. Yet school authorities apparently took no disciplinary action against the protesters and other students who had threatened and harassed YCC members.

The Edina Public Schools’ “policies suggest that ‘all are welcome here,’” the complaint asserts, “but what EPS really means is that all are welcome except conservatives.”
* * *

The Edina school district is just one example of the ideological hijacking of legitimate academic instruction in the name of racial equity. There’s more to come. Last October, the Star Tribune ran an op-ed that praised the Edina schools’ racial equity crusade, and condemned what the author described as America’s vicious history of violence and oppression—evidenced today by “Eurocentric curricula,” “hypersegregated schools,” and “biased standardized tests.” Our nation’s “racist practices,” she wrote, are what “allowed this country to expand geographically and to amass its great fortune.” White students, she asserted, must become “racially conscious” to learn “how their own worldviews are limited by whiteness.”

The writer was Dr. Annie Mogush Mason, program director of elementary teacher education at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, where the next generation of Minnesota’s teachers are being formed.

Update, 2/2/2018: The piece originally linked to a Twitter feed claiming to belong to the group “Edina High School Anti-Fascists.” We were unable to confirm that the Twitter account was related to the video threat submitted by a group using the same name. The link to the Twitter feed has been removed.

RE: Politics & War Lounge




I don't follow Youtube drama, but I knew Kraut and Tea, because he was a German who had lots of videos on the immigration madness.

Turned out that he was actually a leftist at heart who wanted this multi-cultural multi-racial utopia, but somehow it was not forthcoming. After having dealt with Islam and SJWs, he decided that it was a good idea to take on anyone on the race-realism and Alt-Right side.

He at first tried to be all sanctimonious scientific, while later banning any data given by sociology because he considered it inferior science.

Later he no longer could deny facts like current differences of race and IQ and so he began to use SJW-tactics like doxxing and trying to look for dirt in the CVs of his intellectual enemies!

Then he realized his madness and deleted all his content disappearing from Youtube.

We even have black high-IQ members here who admitted that there are some genetic differences in IQ. Though they also stated that this could change via prolonged positive eugenics since there are 1 mio. + of 130+ IQ black men - countless one who are smarter than the smartest RVF members. If those guys then have 10 children each and all others 1, then by golly after a few generations you would have blacks ranging extremely high in the IQ range.

And thus I do not even like the term race realism, because that assumes some un-alienable unchangeable racial traits THAT WILL REMAIN THE SAME FOREVER. Of course that is not true - tribes can change, mentalities can change and even IQs can change over time.

I find this debate funny, because it shows why the Left/SJWs and the Mainstream do not engage in debate. They don't do it, because their masters know that they would lose. A 23yo biology student like Kraut and Tea is still considering him superior enough to think that he can take on anyone, but the truth is the truth. Thus all those gender-crazies/feminists/SJWs do not want the debate. Their handlers know that they would not win an open debate. They just enact laws like in Canada, that you will get fined if you don't use the fantasy pronouns. They are not even letting doctors debate the issue who dealt with treating those crazies. No - they just take a political agenda point like Stalin did and enact it into law.
