Parents In Ultra-Elitist Mass Town Outraged When Students Shown Video Hinting Their Special Little Snowflakes Might Be Racially Insensitive….

BEDFORD, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) — A controversial video about race at a local high school has parents demanding answers from school officials.

The video, entitled (Expletive) White People Say: BHS Edition, was shown during the Wednesday morning announcements at Bedford High School on its student-run show “BHS Live.”

In the video, students acted out vignettes that included stereotypes white students might say about African American students.

“I’m very offended by what I saw,” said parent Bob Marshall. “It was a very disgusting video, very hurtful video.”

Marshall’s daughter first alerted him to the video, telling him that she and other students in her class were offended by the message portrayed.

“A lot of them were upset by what they saw,” Marshall said. “I’m shocked that a video like that could be displayed and that nobody oversaw it.”

In a letter to parents, the principal of BHS admitted “…there has not been a vetting process of videos for BHS Live. Therefore, the video was not previewed by any administrator, student or teacher surrounding BHS Live. A protocol for vetting student videos is being developed.”

Superintendent John Sills told FOX25 that the video was not intended to be a joke, and was made by a senior who is in the broadcast journalism program as a way to spur a conversation on race relations.

“Unfortunately, it was framed in a way that was offensive,” Sills said.

Sills said Wednesday school leaders hosted a meeting with students and staff to discuss reactions to the video, and added more than 150 students joined the conversation.

“I would never say it’s good when something offensive happens. But we always seek to find positives, and we continue to work to derive learning from it,” Sills said.

Nuts: Poll Finds Majority of Democrats Think Illegal Immigrants Should Be Allowed To Vote In U.S. Elections…

I wonder what percentage of Mexicans think Americans should be allowed to vote in their elections? I’m guessing not many.

Via Rasmussen:

Are voters ready to let illegal immigrants vote? A sizable number, including most Democrats, are.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that one-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (35%) now believes that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes. Sixty percent (60%) disagree, while five percent (5%) are undecided.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, announced Thursday he would be retiring from the United States Air Force after more than three decades of service.

“I’ll turn 60 this summer which is the mandatory retirement age for the Air Force Reserves,” Graham said in a news release. “Although I would cherish the opportunity to continue to serve, I know that the time has come for me to end my service and transfer to the retired reserves.”

Graham is a colonel in the United States Air Force Reserves and is assigned as Senior Individual Mobilization Augmentee to the Judge Advocate General. Graham had just returned after completing another short tour of duty in Afghanistan over the Memorial Day recess, the news release stated.

The release stated that the senator often pulled short-term reserve duty in Iraq and Afghanistan where he worked on Rule of Law issues during congressional breaks. He was presented with the Bronze Star Medal for his “exceptionally meritorious service” in 2014 for his work as Senior Legal Advisor during Operation Enduring Freedom.

Report: Bill Clinton Would Only Appear At Event To Receive A “Lifetime Achievement Award” In Exchange For $500K “Donation”

Bubba

‘Via The Hill:

President Clinton appeared at a supermodel’s charity event to receive a lifetime achievement award after she offered to share at least $500,000 of the gala’s proceeds with the Clinton Foundation, according to a Friday report from The New York Times.

The former executive director of the Happy Hearts Fund, founded by Czech model Petra Nemcova, told the paper that Clinton didn’t agree to appear at the June 2014 event until after the charity offered the donation, which made up more than a quarter of the event’s proceeds, for projects in Haiti.

“The Clinton Foundation had rejected the Happy Hearts Fund invitation more than once, until there was a thinly veiled solicitation and then the offer of an honorarium,” Sue Veres Royal told the Times. She was dismissed from the organization soon after based on what the paper describes as “conflicts over the gala and other issues.”

Nemcova held the event last year to commemorate the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which she personally survived by holding onto a palm tree for hours despite shattering her pelvis. Her boyfriend, Simon Atlee, died in the flood.

Officials from the two organizations pushed back against the assertion that the foundation had asked for the donation in exchange for the appearance, according to the Times. The funds, which were received late last year after Nemcova’s charity received an invoice, will be used on future projects in Haiti.

Turkish President Erdogan Calls On World’s Muslims To Invade Jerusalem…

Erdogan

More importantly, Erdogan wants to kill all of the Jews living in Israel.

Via Jews News:

President Erdogan of Turkey gave a speech of great importance that main stream media is not reporting. The Anadolu Agency, which is like the ‘Reuters’ of Turkey, reported on it and several Arabic sources have now picked up on it.

“Unfortunately we the Muslims lost our aim to head towards Jerusalem. The water of our eyes froze making us blind, and our hearts that was destined to beat for Jerusalem is now instead conditioned for rivalry being in a state of war with each other.”

Erdogan’s desire to end strife and unite Sunnis and Shiites to aim towards Jerusalem was made in the state of Erzincan, central Turkey, in which he expressed his desire for the place to become suitable for Al-Isra’ Wal-M’iraj (Muhammad’s ascension to heaven and descent to Jerusalem) where he claimed is the cause of goodness: “descending from heaven over all Muslim nations”.

Turkish president called on citizens to “raise their hands in supplication for this blessed night towards Allah to restore the Al-Aqsa Mosque [Jerusalem] to be re-owned by Muslims, and to remove the mist from their eyes, to see Jerusalem in their hands at every moment and at every opportunity”.

Erdogan added: “When you mention the word ascension; the first thing that comes to mind is Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque,” while he expressed deep regret for the condition of Muslim heedlessness for Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem.

You wondered how she could travel all over to such exotic places as Bali?

Via NRO:

Al Sharpton’s daughter Dominique has recently grabbed headlines for her $5 million lawsuit against the City of New York over a sprained ankle — but the shakedown may not stop there.

New records reviewed by National Review show Sharpton’s daughter and her boyfriend, Marcus Bright, together run a shadowy nonprofit that shares corporate donors, board members, and office space with Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, and they won’t answer any questions about it.

In tax filings, Education for a Better America (EBA) states that its mission is “to build a bridge between policy makers and the classroom by supporting innovations in the delivery of education and disseminating information and findings that impact our schools.” The nonprofit’s publications show the group hosting or participating in education-focused assemblies, speeches, summits, and events in New York City, Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., among other cities.

“It’s all a scam,” says one source close to the Sharpton family. “It’s a cover for money, basically, to subsidize [Dominique] Sharpton and Bright to do what they do. . . . They put it all on their Instagram and their Facebook. Most of the time, it’s like they’re on vacation. . . . One could argue, being totally objective, that some of what [Al] Sharpton has done in terms of advocacy has helped black people and civil rights. Tell me one thing that Education for a Better America has done to help education.”

Feminist Outrage Du Jour: Statue At University In Texas Decried By Feminazis As “Mansplaining”…

r620-eb8668d7389636c5bd471cbdcecc2396

Oh boy…

Via Washington Examiner:

Scene: You’re a woman, sitting on a bench reading a book. Your male friend sees you on the quad and comes over to say hello and talk. You put down your book, lean back against the bench and smile. He doesn’t sit next to you; instead, he puts his foot on the bench and leans over his knee.

So sexist, right?

That scene is depicted in a statue at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, and despite no sign of distress or physical assertion, some women have decided it is a statue of “mansplaining” — a term used to describe men condescendingly explaining something to a woman.

Seriously. Here’s the actual statue and the claim of misogyny: [pictured above]

…. For its part, the university also denied any notion that the statue depicts condescension toward a woman.

“The statue has long-symbolized the friendship and camaraderie that develops among students as they attend UIW,” school spokesman Carl Myers told WITW. “We are deeply saddened that this image of friendship has been misconstrued as a symbol of sexism on social media. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

But who cares what reasonable people would think the statue depicts, this is patriarchy we’re talking about!

“I feel like we’ve all been guilty of [ ], males and females alike,” said Hernandez, the woman who took the original photo of the statue. “But it’s just less palatable when a guy’s up to it ’cause, well, he’s still on the right side of oppression.”

Among other things, like murderer.

Via Washington Examiner:

Vice President Joe Biden simultaneously slammed and complimented Russian President Vladimir Putin Wednesday afternoon following a speech at the
Brookings Institution on the crisis in Ukraine.

“Putin’s vision has very little to offer the people of Europe” or Russia but “false” promises of a past that “wasn’t all that great to begin with,” Biden told the audience. Biden said that instead of offering leadership and strong institutions, Putin just offers rhetoric and propaganda that equates saber rattling with strength.

After that blunt assessment, however, Biden credited the Russian leader with at least having some sensibility.

“At his core, he is practical,” Biden said in response to a question. Biden said Putin will push issues as far as he can, but will pull back if he thinks the fallout is too great. “If you look at his behavior, he’s a practical guy,” Biden added.

Islamic State Sends Senior Cleric “Blind Judge” To Ramadi In Bid To Win Over Locals…

ISIS-rebels-new

And if that doesn’t work the head choppers will move in.

(Reuters) – A senior Islamic State figure known as “the blind judge” has made an appearance in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, asserting the militant group’s dominion over it as security forces and Shi’ite militias prepare a counter-attack.

Residents of Ramadi said a blind man with one hand and his head shrouded had delivered a speech in the Anbar provincial capital’s main mosque after evening prayers on Wednesday.

They did not know who he was but recognized him to be a senior figure because he was flanked by a large number of guards and said his accent indicated he was Iraqi.

Iraqi security expert Hisham al-Hashimi, who closely tracks the hardline insurgents, identified the man as Ali Attiya al-Jubouri, also known as Abu Asim, or “the blind judge of the Islamic State”.

“This cleric who appeared in Ramadi yesterday is very famous,” Hashimi said. “He is the second highest religious authority after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the fifth man in the organization of Daesh.”

Daesh is an Arabic name for Islamic State.

Hashimi said the appearance of the blind judge was designed to win over residents of Ramadi, many of whom sided with the government and fended off the militants until they were finally overcome on May 17.

Scrambling to reverse the setback, Iraq’s government has deployed Shi’ite militias to Anbar despite concerns about a potential sectarian backlash from the province’s predominantly Sunni population.

Liberals Built This: Unfinished Prison Costs Detroit $1.2 Million Per Month

This is liberal control.

Via Fox News:

A prison in downtown Detroit that was deemed too expensive to complete is now a construction site frozen in time that still costs cash-strapped local taxpayers more than $1 million a month.

It was supposed to be a state-of-art lockup in the heart of the Motor City, but four years after breaking ground, with construction costs totaling $150 million and no end in sight, the city pulled the plug on the project four years ago.

Now, the Wayne County Jail sits empty among the ruins of a bankrupt city, costing taxpayers upwards of $1.2 million in debt service and monthly upkeep costs for electricity, security, sump pumps – and even off-site storage for pre-fabricated jail cells that will never be used.

Two Cars Try To Breach An Exit At Fort Benning, GA, Shots Fired, One Suspect Caught, Others On The Run

benning

Generic suspects on the loose.

Via AL Com

Patton Village residents at Fort Benning were given the “all clear” notice about four hours after two civilian vehicles went through an unauthorized entry point on Sand Hill and shots were fired, post officials said on its Facebook page late Thursday.

The Department of Emergency Services arrested one suspect after shots were fired about 2:25 p.m. and Columbus Police are continuing to search for three to five men who are possibly in nearby woods. Authorities also seized two hand guns, one from each of the vehicles.

Post officials checked all vehicles entering the installation until the area was cleared. Fort Benning police will maintain a high level of patrols in the Patton Village area throughout the night. Residents are urged to lock their doors and windows and remain vigilant for suspicious activity in the area.

All gates at Fort Benning remain open . Residents should call 911 to report any suspicious.

Gary Jones, the director of public affairs for the Maneuver Center of Excellence, said the two vehicles were trailing one another at a high rate of speed when they attempted to enter the Sand Hill exit point at 2:25 p.m. Because the location is an exit point, Jones said the raised “tiger teeth” stopped both vehicles and flattened their tires. Both vehicles continued to move toward the new elementary school construction near Patton Village.

Three to five men left the first vehicle and ran into the wood line. That’s when shots are believed to have been fired.

The driver of the second vehicle was arrested and authorities found one weapon in the vehicle as the other suspects fled. Police also seized a pistol from the first vehicle.

Authorities with DES and Columbus Police Department conducted door to door searches for the suspects. They used K-9 teams and other law enforcement personnel but no suspects were found.

During the search, residents were sent a giant voice message which stated ” “Warning, Fort Benning Police are searching for possibly armed suspects in your area – call 911 if you see suspicious personnel. Recommend stay indoors until an all clear is given.”

The shooting remains under investigation . Jones said the Federal Bureau of Investigation may be involved with investigation because shots were fired on a military installation.

Via ABC 15:

An anti-Islam rally in Phoenix on Friday will feature a Muhammad cartoon-drawing contest.

The scheduled location is outside the Islamic Community Center in north Phoenix.

The gathering comes less than a month after a similar event in Texas sparked gunfire that left two gunmen, both from Phoenix, dead.

The gunmen, whom federal officials identified as Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, wounded a security officer before they were shot and killed at the scene.

Simpson had worshipped at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix for about a decade, but he quit showing up over the past two or three months, the president of the mosque told The Associated Press.

A convert to Islam, Simpson first attracted the FBI’s attention in 2006 because of his ties to a former U.S. Navy sailor who had been arrested in Phoenix and was ultimately convicted of terrorism-related charges. Less was known about Soofi, who appeared to have never been prosecuted in federal court, according to a search of court records.

The organizer of Friday’s event said he had to do “something” because he does not want Islam spreading in the U.S.

“We’re just out utilizing our First Amendment,” organizer Jon Ritzheimer said.

Ritzheimer said he would not shoulder any responsibility if the event turned violent.

The Valley man organized an anti-Islam rally outside the same location several weeks ago, which was peaceful, he said.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Thanks Paid Racial Agitator Deray McKesson For His Support

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 9.21.12 PM

Marilyn Mosby claimed today that her personal account had been hacked and that tweets she endorsed calling the 6 officers she charged ‘thugs’ and saying that she would concern a “certain type of white person”, were not made by her. Given that the rest of her personal account appears unaffected by this apparently highly selective hacking, one has to doubt the honesty of Ms. Mosby’s assertions.

In case anyone tries to argue that Mosby doesn’t know who she is talking to In McKesson, we note her husband actually welcomed McKesson and Johnetta Elzie to the city, when they came to agitate. He even included a #BlackLIvesMatter hashtag in his tweet.

McKesson and other ‘protesters’ have somehow managed to be able to travel from protest to protest, traveling from Ferguson to Baltimore and most recently to Cleveland. As we noted, the Acorn-related group, MORE, is one of the groups who has been paying protesters to protest and we listed payoffs to various protest organizers, including money to travel to various protest events.

McKesson has stated his purpose is not ‘to build’ but specifically to ‘create crisis':

Hundreds Of Millions Of Cost Overruns At U.S. Embassies

Via WFB:

The State Department has undertaken the costly construction of new embassies across the globe.

The new embassy in London is estimated to cost around $1 billion. Glass for the London build was shipped back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean for cutting and framing. The new Afghanistan embassy exceeded $150 million.

The current embassy in Mexico City is currently crumbling, unsafe, and overcrowded. The build was supposed to cost $600 million but has increased at least a third, all before the start of construction. The new site for the embassy was bought four years ago for $120 million and was in a former industry area that was once site to a Colgate Palmolive factory that left hazardous waste.

Emails Make Very Clear That Hillary Was Working On Ways To Secretly Arm Rebels

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 8.34.29 PM

We knew this, but the emails begin to lay it out, including the possible involvement of Republicans like Mike Rogers which explains why they didn’t want to investigate Benghazi.

Via Fox News:

Recently released emails detail then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors before the fall of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 – though at the time, the opposition was not formally recognized by the U.S. or United Nations, which prohibited arming without following strict guidelines and oversight.

The issue remains so sensitive that the emails recently released by the State Department redacted a key line on the matter. But the unredacted version of the same email, released to the congressional Benghazi Select Committee and first posted by The New York Times last Thursday, showed Clinton appearing to endorse the idea of using private contractors to her then-deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan.

“FYI. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered,” Clinton wrote to Sullivan on April 8, 2011, attaching an intelligence report from Hillary’s adviser Sidney Blumenthal. The opposition was known as the Transitional National Council, or TNC.

Another email released by the State Department shows that five days earlier, on April 3, 2011, Bill Clinton said he would not rule out arming the Libyan opposition. The story was circulated by Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s principal personal adviser at the State Department, to “H.” While it’s not clear who “H” is, based on the message traffic it is likely Hillary Clinton or possibly adviser Huma Abedin.

Later that same year, a Sept. 10, 2011 email with a subject line “Rogers” said, “Apparently wants to see you to talk Libya/weapons.”

At the time, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was Mike Rogers, who abruptly announced he would not seek re-election in the spring of 2014. Rogers did not immediately respond to questions seeking comment. Fox News also filed its own Freedom of Information Act request for the documents in October 2012.
