The Daily Kos published an article titled Hurricane Harvey poised to disproportionately impact blacks in Texas, but no one is talking about it.
Yeah, they did that. Who would have through that a hurricane could be racist and target black people in Texas. Of course, to the Daily Kos, the big problem isn’t just racist hurricanes, but that people doing the hand wringing over the hurricane are doing enough hand wringing specifically for black Texans.
Here is a map of energy sources in Texas.
It would not be inaccurate to take the Daily Kos headline and change it up a little bit Hurricane Harvey poised to disproportionately impact chemical engineers in Texas, but no one is talking about it.
Here’s a map of Texas by population density.
A more accurate news headline would be Hurricane Harvey poised to disproportionately impact Texans in high population dense cities.
Millions of people are going to be affected by Harvey for a long time, but according to the Daily Kos, fuck those white people in Texas, we are only going to care about the black ones.
Leaving Texas behind for a moment, lets head over to Colorado, where some special snowflake wrote just about the worse opinion ever for publication ever, this time in a campus newsletter: Veterans should be banned from four-year universities.
This one is so bad I swear if I didn’t look it up I would have thought it was a Poe’s Law parody. It states:
A four-year, traditional university is supposed to be a place of learning, of understanding, of safety and security. However, there is an element among us who may be frustrating those goals: Veterans.
Really? How so?
First off, many veterans openly mock the ideas of diversity and safe spaces for vulnerable members of society.
This I fully believe. When you have been shot at, a safe space is hard cover, not a room full of crayons and Play-Doh.
This is directly in contradiction to the mission of UCCS. Many veterans utter the mantra that they, “do not see color”.
True. I seem to remember a mantra I heard from a Marine, “Marines come in only one color: Green.”
But the problem lies in their socialization into the military culture that is that of a white supremacist organization. They have been permanently tainted, and are no long fit for a four-year university.
Here we bank HARD LEFT. This is nothing but anti-American/anti-Military hatred.
Second, many students are frightened by the presence of veterans in their classrooms.
That is their problem. Just like with campus carry, it is the over reaction of the safe space crowd that is the problem.
Veterans usually have an overwhelming presence in the classroom, which can distract other students. This is usually true for vulnerable individual such as LGBTQQI2SAA, who have been known to be the butt of insensitive jokes made by veterans.
Anybody who uses more than ‘LGBT’ opinion is invalid. That’s the mark of an irrational Social Justice Warrior.
Finally, veterans usually are associated with extremists right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA. In order to provide a safe place for all students, extremist right-wing groups must be suppressed on campus. This would include their followers: veterans.
Oh no, extremist Right Wing groups like… the Tea Party and the NRA. Just law abiding citizens who want to be left alone with minimal taxation and their civil liberties intact. How fucking awful. What Nazi monsters.
That is not to say that veterans should not be allowed an education. Veterans should be allowed to attend trade schools, or maybe even community college. But, in order to protect our academic institutions we must ban veterans from four-year universities.
That is the most condescending fucking bullshit I have ever read. First, it supposes that a vocational or trade education is some sort of second class education – a consolation prize for the peons. Second it over inflates the value of a four year degree, many of which (looking at you Liberal Arts and anything that ends in “studies”) are worthless. Lastly, it undervalues the importance of skills in society.
This last statement could be reworded to “Veterans are garbage people who aren’t good enough for our ivory tower and should be relegated to menial tasks for a living.”
I could go on a long tirade here about how working in industry, I have more use for one person with an Associates in Machining than all the BA’s in Women and Gender Studies in the world (really, as a mathematical certainty), but I won’t.
Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame has an entire foundation dedicated to expanding the industrial arts and showing how valuable they are to society.
This has made him a target of other snowflakes. One accused him of being a white supremacist.
“One of the tenants of white nationalism is that college educated people are academic elitests. Comment? No? I’m not surprised. You never take a political stand because you don’t want to alienate anybody. Its bad for business. I get it. But there is a current of anti intellectualism in this country – promoted by Republicans. Those people love you, and they think your initiative is their initiative.”
Let’s see if I get this straight. One snowflake says that veterans are bad and shouldn’t be allowed into colleges because are for the elite and veterans hurt sensitive LGBT feelings and should only go to trade schools. A professor says all republicans are “racist scum” and another says “all white people should die“. Then a second snowflake says guy who supports trade schools is a white nationalist because white nationalists are stupid people who think college is for elite people.
Seems like the Left has made up it’s mind that only Leftists deserve four year degrees and anything other than a four year degree in Identity Politics is the brand of a Nazi.
This is how you get Nazis. Seriously.
“Screw the white people who have lost everything in a flood, and the white people who are doing the rescuing are garbage anyway and should only be relegated to shoveling shit and other tasks.”
These assholes aren’t fighting Nazis, they are creating them.
