In a statement posted on Facebook, the organizers have confirmed that the event will now no longer be going ahead, following “conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march."

"The local organizers are continuing to meet and discuss how to broaden representation in the organizing committee to create an event that represents and supports peoples who live here in Humboldt,” the statement added.

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community.

“Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”

The announcement was met with criticism from some social media users.

“I was appalled to be honest,” Amy Sawyer Longwrote on Facebook. “I understand wanting a diverse group. However, we live in a predominantly white area…not to mention how is it beneficial to cancel? No matter the race people still want their voices heard.”

David Holper added: “I was really saddened to hear that the march won’t be happening this year. Isn’t there still time to reach out to minority groups and pull this together?”

According to Census Bureau data from July, Humboldt County is around 74 percent non-Hispanic white, 12 percent Hispanic, 6 percent Native American, 2 percent Asian, and 1 percent black, reports The Washington Times.

The event organizers said they are looking into is exploring holding an event in March to celebrate International Women’s Day and are still encouraging local residents to attend the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration taking place in Eureka on January 21.

The cancellation also arrived amid the Chicago branch of the Women’s March criticising the national initiative’s relationship with Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, considered an anti-Semitic hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The left definitely eats their own but it takes a while before the self-destruction is complete. In this case, it cannot come any sooner because we as men and as members of Western Civilization need them to do so because the Left apart from (((them))) and women are getting in the way of red-pilled men in their ability to salvage Western Civilization.

Does it look like the left is eating its own? Where's the evidence, truly?

Fuck, even if it is eating its own, it seems to exist in every goddamned, fucking corner you turn, AND the numbers appear to be climbing!

No, we can only wish its influence is on the decline.

MaxMillion, you have to view the Left eating its own as no different than that of a stock bubble. When you hit peak market/leftist crap/whatever, everyone is thinking that their is no end to this because there is no way it can stop going up/coming up with new leftist stuff/etc. At that point, you hit the top. Now, when you fall from the top and see a crash is where the doubling down and the "eating of oneself" begins to take place. We are at the 1st crash stage, and yes, it will get worse but it will get better because the crashes will get worse and the chicanery will be even more unbearable, but it will be at such a point where even the normies will say no more and demand purges. Unfortunately, the healing will begin only when there is metaphorically speaking "blood on the streets", whether people have lost their shirts or people marching on the streets demanding action be taken.

That's what it'll take, but yet strangely not mentioned - or barely.

People seem to think that "just talk it out" is somehow going to reverse what's happening.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SLAMS MEDIA OUTLET FOR LACK OF DIVERSITY IN 2020 ELECTION COVERAGE: 'UNACCEPTABLE IN 2019. TRY AGAIN'
BY JASON MURDOCK ON 1/13/19 AT 4:45 AM

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was embroiled in a Twitter spat this weekend after criticizing CBS News for an apparent lack of black journalists covering the 2020 election.

The democrat, who represents New York's 14th congressional district, spoke out yesterday in response to a tweet from CBS producer Ben Mitchell which announced the team covering the upcoming election. In the Friday post, Mitchell published the headshots of the staffers.

Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “This WH admin has made having a functional understanding of race in America one of the most important core competencies for a political journalist to have, yet @CBSNews hasn’t assigned a *single* black journalist to cover the 2020 election.”

The newly-elected politician added: “Unacceptable in 2019. Try again.”
The Twitter post has currently racked up close to 4,000 shares, with nearly 20,000 users “liking” the stance.

The tweet caught the attention of Josh Kraushaar, politics editor at the National Journal, who hit back on the social media platform likening Ocasio-Cortez to president Donald Trump.

“Another thing AOC has in common with Trump: media scold,” Kraushaar wrote on Saturday, using the common abbreviation for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s name. It didn’t end there.

Not backing down, the politician countered: “Or: maybe having powerful editorial positions awash in people from one race, class, or gender isn’t a good idea; since we get 1000% more takes on 'brown lady says a curse word' than an actual white supremacist in Congress. If you won’t look the mirror, people will do it for you.” As noted by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez was speaking in reference to an article published by Media Matters for America, which she had also re-tweeted earlier.

Kraushaar later said the seven campaign reporters “looked racially diverse” but conceded there was no black representation currently on the team.

The editor tweeted: “For what it’s worth, the mix of 7 embedded campaign reporters looked racially diverse (at least based on last names), with the exception of lacking an African-American.

“If there aren’t strict racial quotas for every batch of hires, does it mean a company is racist?” he added.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has become known for connecting with followers with a savvy use of social media, was not done. “Do you understand how fundamental the black experience is to American politics? And to American history?” she wrote. “One race isn’t substitutable for another. It doesn’t work like that. It’s not about ‘quotas.’ It’s about understanding the country you’re living in.”

Making one final point on the matter yesterday, she added: “I am tempted to change my Twitter name to: ‘Alexandria ‘looked racially diverse (at least based on last names) Ocasio-Cortez.’”
 
Martina Navratilova criticised over 'cheating' trans women comments

The former Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova has been criticised for “disturbing, upsetting, and deeply transphobic” comments after she argued that allowing transgender women to compete in women’s sporting tournaments was “insane and cheating”.

The tennis player and gay rights campaigner first drew criticism from equalities activists and trans athletes when she tweeted in December: “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”


Writing in the Sunday Times, Navratilova said she had subsequently promised to keep quiet on the subject until she had done some research on it. “Well, I’ve now done that and, if anything, my views have strengthened,” she wrote.

“To put the argument at its most basic: a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires.

“It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.”


Her comments attracted criticism across social media. “We’re pretty devastated to discover that Martina Navratilova is transphobic,” tweeted the rights group Trans Actual. “If trans women had an advantage in sport, why aren’t trans women winning gold medals left, right and centre?”

Under guidelines introduced by the International Olympic Committee in 2016, trans men are able to compete without restriction, while trans women must demonstrate that their testosterone level has been below a certain cutoff point for at least one year before their first competition.

Previous guidelines, approved in 2003, required transgender athletes to have reassignment surgery followed by at least two years of hormone therapy in order to be eligible to compete.

“Simply reducing hormone levels – the prescription most sports have adopted – does not solve the problem,” wrote Navratilova. “A man builds up muscle and bone density, as well as a greater number of oxygen-carrying red blood cells, from childhood.”


Following her comments in December, Navratilova was criticised by Rachel McKinnon, a Canadian academic and cyclist, who in October became the first transgender woman to win a track world title.

“McKinnon has vigorously defended her right to compete, pointing out that, when tested, her levels of testosterone, the male hormone, were well within the limits set by world cycling’s governing body,” wrote Navratilova on Sunday. “Nevertheless, at 6ft tall and weighing more than 14 stone, she appeared to have a substantial advantage in muscle mass over her rivals.”

The tennis star said she had been “pretty put out” by McKinnon’s accusation that she was transphobic and said she deplored “what seems to be a growing tendency among transgender activists to denounce anyone who argues against them”.

She pointed to her friendship with Renée Richards, the transgender tennis player who campaigned to be able to compete in the women’s US Open, and her support for Caster Semenya, who is fighting a legal battle to be able to compete without taking testosterone-suppressing medication.

In a statement to the Guardian, McKinnon described Navratilova’s article as “disturbing, upsetting, and deeply transphobic”. “She trades on age-old stereotypes and stigma against trans women, treating us as men just pretending to be real women. She seeks to deny trans women equal rights to compete under the rules,” she said.

“And the current rules, such as the International Olympic Committee since 2003, explicitly welcomes trans women to compete at the highest levels. I suppose it’s too much to ask for Martina to simply do the same.”

Following McKinnon’s win in the women’s 35-44 sprint during the UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles in October, Jennifer Wagner, who came third in the race, complained that the result was unfair.

McKinnon responded by saying Wagner had beaten her in 10 of their last 12 races. “This is what the double bind for trans women looks like: when we win, it’s because we’re transgender and it’s unfair,” she said. “When we lose, no one notices (and it’s because we’re just not that good anyway). Even when it’s the same racer. That’s what transphobia looks like.”

A spokesperson for the LGBT rights charity Stonewall said: “Sport should be welcoming to everyone, including trans people. We need clubs and governing bodies, as the experts, to consider how their sports’ individual policies can work to be as inclusive as possible, and what advice and guidance they’re giving to ensure all people, including trans people, can take part in sport.”

Years ago I thought we had reached peak insanity. How wrong I was.

http://www.stationgossip.com/2019/02/princeton-university-students-decry.html

"See if you can follow this: a 1996 play called “The Vagina Monologues” that was built around fifteen monologues from women in the 90’s was viewed as problematic by the two female students who directed a recent production at Princeton University because the play assumes that women must have vaginas."

Edit:

May as well toss this in too.

The Identity-Politics Left Now Despises Bernie Sanders

I’m old enough to remember a time when an independent secular Jewish socialist with a long record of support for Communist regimes would be considered a force for diversity in a typical field of Democratic candidates.

...

But suddenly, Sanders’s political radicalism is eclipsed entirely by his whiteness and maleness. This is partly because so much of the Democratic party has adopted his policy positions that he no longer stands out the way he did just two years ago. Still, it’s a remarkable change, made all the more remarkable because it’s mostly an elite liberal phenomenon.

Fuck, even if it is eating its own, it seems to exist in every goddamned, fucking corner you turn, AND the numbers appear to be climbing!

No, we can only wish its influence is on the decline.

More precisely, it's about leftist orthodoxy shifting "forward" (ie further into insanity) so that the vanguard (craziest elements) have to discipline the rearguard with the newest iterations of the program ("intersectionalty", "cisgender" oppression etc).

Previously, people like Obama have advanced the program while hiding the true nature of their agendas, running with a "rearguard" progressive agenda that seems harmless and well-intentioned enough, in order to push their radical cultural marxist agenda.

So for example Obama an Clinton were publicly against gay marriage, but once their people took over, they could push it through then promote it everwhere. Or they come across as benignly pro-choice because they're sensitive to women's rights, when in fact there is a radical eugenicist infanticidal plan behind it, with 9th month infanticides being now openly legalized.

With the "vanguard" taking over, it's going to be harder for them to deceive the general public by posing as moderates.

Asia Argento, leader of the #MeToo movement, was slung aside after it was claimed she was a sex predator.

Now the leader of TimesUp has stood down as it has been revelead her hippy-dippy son stands accused of poking his dick into unwilling women.

Little sympathy on Twitter. At least they're being consistent and believing survivors of having a dick poked into them during $330 massages.
