How Does One Separate Slut from Rut in Harvey Weinstein’s World?

How hungry for advancement in the American entertainment world is the climbing “star” willing to be to endure an event with Harvey Weinstein or his professional kin?

Today’s leader Democrats, their fascistic feminist wing  tell us especially at university, that the human female animal is  the “equal”, the carbon copy,  of the  human male animal, if not the superior, for the she believe in “PEACE”, she says.

“President elect”, Hillary Roddham Clinton, led her followers and their teachers to believe so.   Today’s less feminized American human male animals are “deplorables”, she declared publicly more than once.   Hillary proved she was butch enough to let this “truth” be known at last by all.  But the “President elect” part of Hillary passed her by last November.  Her deplorables beat her 306-232.

If we more mature Americans, those born between 1776 and Viet Nam war could be surveyed, we’d be able to list endless differences (in build, sex, ability, drive, and duty) between the human “sexes”  the two, that is, the female and the male apparently no longer known by these feminist extremists and their teachers at school and university.

We used to be farmers here in Minnesota, nearly all of us….both male and female, with certain duties needed to be tended to by each sex for survival;  duties about the same for thousands of   our animal years past….build, defend, explore, harvest, hunt, kill, clothe, feed, nurse and teach  the young for the species to survive.

Today we have reading, the internet, divorce, leftists, college “professors”, Hillary, Nancy Pelosi and Harvey Weinstein and his ‘girls’.

Clarice Feldman at American Thinker wrote the following article regarding the Weinstein case in America to ‘chew’ over:

Why the Weinstein Scandal Made Public Now?

by Roger L. Simon  at PJMedia:

“Harvey Weinstein belied the old joke that Washington was Hollywood for ugly people.  He is an ugly person himself, in more ways than one, though he operated from Hollywood (via New York).  He has, as the world now knows, finally gotten his comeuppance, suffering yet another indignity Saturday by being expelled from the Academy.  (Roman Polanski,  Mel Gibson and a host of other miscreants – known and unknown – remain members.)

But amidst the endless slew of revelations, a key question remains – why now?  Why did The New York Times and The New Yorker suddenly decide Fall 2017 was the appropriate time to out Harvey when many have known of his execrable behavior for years, at least quite a bit of it?  The Times, as is also well known at this point, spiked a similar Sharon Waxman story a decade or so ago.

It’s a whodunit or a whydunit that may have a simple Occam’s Razor solution – Harvey’s activities may have reached a tipping point.  But that point was clearly reached years ago.  Or, it could be some eager reporters anxious to make their reputations by finally crashing through.  Ronan Farrow is known to have an ax to grind.  But the Times and The New Yorker don’t release something this sensational, especially about someone who is so influential in Democratic Party circles, without good reason.  So again, why now?”    Please continue reading below:

The Teenybopper Invasion of Today’s America

Today’s Teenybopper, noise, mind, and body:

teen·y·bop·per

(tē′nē-bŏp′ər)

n.Slang

1. young teenage girl.
2. teenager who follows the latest fad or craze, as in dress or music.
Today’s American Female of Fame…..Why do so many talk ‘Teenybopper’ in shrill above all?
For the past 50 years the American female under age 50 with some form of television and radio  fame and/or experience,  has never learned to speak English beyond her girly puberty stage.   Her screechy,   super soprano ditsy teenybopper childish shrills, scratch a noise far more repelling than any scratches on the noisiest blackboard screeches of yesteryear…..
My mother, all of my aunts, my grandmother, sister, female cousins, our neighbor females beyond puberty nature never made speaking noises resembling ditsy shrills of feminist teenbopperese!    Television hadn’t arrived then.   Nearly every man and woman I heard spoke as an adult at home, on the street, on the radio, and for a few decades, on television.
Where would we have learned teenybopper?   JudeoChristian adults ran our proper American private and  public show until the late 1960s.   Children were taught at home, Church, and school to speak their English “properly”,  clearly, to resemble the language of the learned in movies.   No one wanted to become a bum!  a drunk!  a ditsy!
I think cable Fox News, not  Business Fox,  celebrates the worst blackboard, sixth grader scratches of female noises on television, slightly ahead of CNN and MSNBC.
Where are those beautiful adult American voices of Joan Crawford…Betty Davis…Irene Dunne…Claudette Colbert etalia of yesteryear movies  and  all of the  radio adult females?    They were taught to rise above the ditsy then….to become a responsible adult by speaking and acting adult!……those days  when the adult male was programmed to be a gentleman.

The Jewish Left, Harvey Weinstein, and the Hollywood Crowd

Weinstein, Feldman, Goldwyn, Goldstein, Feldstein, Cohen, Nehensky, Blau,  “and such”, are overwhelmingly Jewish  sir names in our America from my personal experience.   One recognizes them easily when one has been raised in an urban American Jewish community from 1934-1974.

Nelson, Anderson, Peterson, Bradley, Bach, Jones don’t make it.  “Berg” could go ‘Semitic’ or be nonSemitic,  requiring more research if truth in accuracy of background  be required.

Yesterday’s and today’s Jewish Americans are indoor people.   “No one’s made any money working outdoors”, I was advised by a Jewish neighbor of a Jewish  landscape garden client of mine.  He stood over me dressed in his million dollar suit on a hot Saturday while I was shirtless, lying backside on the ground artistically pruning a  Japanese Yew  I had made beautiful for the Jewish owner of the property over the years.

This owner was a very wealthy, very short “unsynagogued” angry at the world, man.   He was born and raised in the Bronx under the most urban conditions.   The Twin City national corporation in which he reached highest ranking in financing was sold to an international corporation.  He was released to be on his own in suburban Minneapolis.   Changes had to be made…..local things….He didn’t want to move from his acre in a western Minneapolis suburb.   He called me to redo  this very “oh-hum” tasteless home landscaping at the same time he had me teach him sculpting  outdoor plants  to challenge his anger at life.    He  also began building his own local financial service business out of his home, a home with grounds made beautiful.

I worked for him side by side   nearly every seasonal Saturday for years.   He learned to prune properly, the art of it, what and when to prune and why.   He learned how to smile.   He learned to love his outdoors.

In my lifetime the working world of our America, whether rural or urban,  has been transferred from the great outdoors to the Weinstein indoors where real money can be made in movies, investment, political conning,  and banking……where today’s Obamaling  Godless outdoor know-nothings preach to us their complete ignorance of the endless world outdoors.

American Lloyd Marcus to Black Leftists: “LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

The Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast: The Great Black Deception

By Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker:
..

“Flipping through my TV channels, I stumbled upon the 2017 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Prayer Breakfast on the Word Network; the world’s largest black religious channel. This year’s theme was, “And Still I Rise”.

Folks, I thought, “Oh my gosh, these people have no shame.” This breakfast was all about exploiting black’s Christian heritage to deceive them for the purpose of furthering Leftists’ anti-Christian agenda. Every musical performance praised Jesus. Leftists despise Jesus, aggressively seeking to ban the God of Christianity from the public square. Several of the all-Democrat speakers quoted the Bible to strengthen their political deceptions. The truth is, quoting the Bible is as repulsive to Leftists as showing Dracula the cross.

I thought, does anyone in that hall know Obama led a leftist war on Christianity, making him the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history? Do y’all know the 2017 Women’s March and Trump resisters whom you’ve praised at this breakfast seek to continue the Leftists’ war on Christianity?

The CBC Prayer Breakfast had nothing to do with Jesus or spreading His Love. Quite the opposite. It was about spreading hate for police, strengthening the Trump resistance, and strengthening black’s bogus belief that they are victims in America. The breakfast was also about despicably instilling hate and fear to register new Democrat voters.

Oh, how I wish I could grab my fellow black Americans by their collar and slap them into reality. America is the greatest land of opportunity on this planet for all who choose to go for it. Forget the Democrat/Leftist victim nonsense and pursue your dreams.

My 89-year-old black dad was extremely active in the early civil rights movement. As a kid, I accompanied Dad to the 1963 March on Washington at which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his remarkable, “I Have a Dream” speech. The modern civil rights movement has abandoned the vision of unity articulated by Dr. King in his speech, “I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” Oh, how the civil rights movement has fallen.

Though opposed by his peers, Dr. King stood firm on the principle of nonviolent activism. Today, Democrats praise violent hate groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Obama honored Black Lives Matter at the White House. You have not heard a single word of criticism from the CBC against Black Lives Matter calling for the killing of cops and whites.

Dad pressured/shamed me and my four younger siblings into voting and joining the NAACP. Dad said, “A lot of folks suffered and died to give y’all the right to vote.”

As a young man in the 1970s, I joined the NAACP. Upon attending my first meeting, I thought, “What is wrong with these people?” It felt like I stepped back into 1950s. The vibe was depressing. I was surrounded by long-faced blacks singing, “We Shall Over Come.” I commented to Dad that the meeting felt like I walked through a time warp into days of black misery. Dad chuckled.

I was a young black man enjoying the fruits of Dad’s and his fellow civil rights activist’s labors. I attended the mostly white Maryland Institute College of Art on scholarships. I was the first black graphic designer employed at WJZ-TV, ABC affiliate in Baltimore. Life was good. But the folks at the NAACP meeting were sad, depressed and angry; acting as though black slavery was alive and well in America.

Watching the 2017 CBC Prayer Breakfast, I witnessed the same absurd lie that America is still a hellhole of racism for blacks. The “And Still I Rise” theme means blacks stand strong despite being persecuted daily in America.

All that hate promoted at the Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast was insidiously shrouded in Christianity. As a Christian, I found the so-called “prayer breakfast” a sad, evil deception.

As a black American, in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I command Leftists to, “Let my people go!”

Minneapolis “Star” Katherine Kersten Exposes the Feminist Leftist Cancer Killing Learning at Edina School District

Kersten responds to Star Tribune Counterpoints re: Edina School District’s racial identity policies

“On Saturday, October 7, the Star Tribune ran my op-ed piece on the Edina Public Schools (Racial Identity Politics are ruining Edina’s fabled schools.”)  Today the paper features two commentaries in opposition, and four letters to the editor (all opposed). Together, they provide a window on why our public schools face the ideological assault they do.

The first commentary is the most revealing. It’s headlined “Why it’s crucial for today’s students to unlearn racism.” The author is Annie Mogush Mason, Program Director of Elementary Teacher Education at the University of Minnesota.

Though Mason asserts that “Kersten’s commentary rests on untenable ground throughout,” she makes no attempt to provide evidence for this claim. Instead, she offers her own view of American history, which she says justifies ideologically driven education of the kind the Edina schools practice.

Mason clearly regards our nation as a despicable place. She denounces “the savagery of colonization” that gave birth to America, and declares that “racist practices”

allowed this country to expand geographically and to amass its great fortune. These practices also contributed to the development of the white race, and for those identified as white to gain and maintain… ’white privilege.’

(One wonders why, if America is such an oppressive place, so many “people of color” continue to risk their lives to come and live here.)

Mason views herself as a member of America’s moral vanguard. She seems to believe that she and her fellow social justice warriors—purified of our nation’s sins—are entitled to compel the rest of us to face up to, confess, and seek forgiveness for our own complicity in evil.

Schools must be at the center of this re-education campaign, in Mason’s view.

Teachers, she tells us, must engage “in careful study of how their lives and identities”—as white people—“interact with those of students and families.”

“When white teachers do this work,” she assures us, “they are less likely to get stuck in feelings of guilt or shame about their white privilege.” Thus liberated, she says, “they can turn their attention”—not to teaching reading and math effectively—but to promoting “justice in schools.”

Mason informs us that students also are increasingly “able and willing to explore how their own world views are limited by whiteness.” Thanks to the racially conscious instruction they now receive, she notes,

As I write, children and young people in my neighborhood are busy doing things like organizing teach-ins at their schools, attending mayoral forums and engaging in action research projects to strengthen their schools.

Could this be why so many American kids increasingly struggle to read or do math? According to Mason, both teachers and students are leaving academics behind to focus on social justice.

Annie Mogush Mason holds a position of influence at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. As Director of Elementary Teacher Education there, she works “to bring an intersectional and race-conscious framework to curriculum and instruction,” according to her web site.

Mason says she works “primarily with preservice teachers [student teachers who have not yet begun to teach] to understand how their personal identities impact their work with students, and I encourage all of my students to develop orientations toward social justice.”

The fact that ideologically motivated educators like Mason wield such influence at the University of Minnesota should be of serious concern to the citizens of our state.

The author of the second counterpoint to my op-ed was Charles Heinecke, a junior at Edina High School. His piece was headlined “To this white male, there’s no ‘culture of intimidation’ at Edina High School.”

Heinecke claims he has never experienced or witnessed ideological intimidation at the high school. But then, he is not the sort of student at whom such intimidation is aimed, since he shares the social-political agenda of the powers that be there.

Heinecke seems untroubled by Edina School District leaders’ own admission that the high school has violated students’ First Amendment rights. On August 24, 2017, Commissioner Peter Kirsanow  of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights wrote to the chair of the Edina school board about reports of high school teachers’ “discrimination” against and “bullying” of students “with different political beliefs.” Kirsanow reminded school officials that federal civil rights law prohibits such discrimination in public schools.

In a response dated Sept. 21, EPS Superintendent John Schultz essentially acknowledged that the high school has failed to meet its First Amendment obligations. Since receipt of Kirsanow’s letter, he wrote, “the district has invited a team of attorneys to conduct training on employee and student free speech rights and limitations, which was attended by administrators and all high school staff.”

Heinecke’s failure to notice free speech violations at the high school is not surprising. His own Star Tribune commentary shows little attention to detail, and repeatedly mischaracterizes my words.

For example, he criticizes me for “us[ing] the word ‘Marxist’ to describe an AP English class” in which he says he was a student. “As to Marxism, he says, “I don’t recall learning that private property is theft” in that class.

In fact, the teacher of the class in question used the word “Marxist” to describe her class. I merely quoted her. Specifically, the teacher wrote in a course description that “By the end of the year, [students] will have…learned how to apply marxist[sic]feminist, post-colonial [and] psychoanalytic… lenses to literature.”

Educators and students like Mason and Heinecke are free to berate those who point out the increasing ideological indoctrination—and the growing academic mediocrity—of the Edina Public Schools. But that won’t change reality, and the urgent need to take steps to prevent further decline….”

(Comment from glenn:   I like to remind Americans these days that the human male is born a killer by Nature (I prefer “by Nature’s GOD”),  a defender and protector of his space and family and country, curious, a builder, a warrior,  a discoverer,  a wonderer, an inventor, a worker and such.   She owns precious, sacred,  motherhood, the primary center of future humanity, the primary teacher of her child’s understanding of  word and deed.

By Nature the human male animal usually by instinct is driven to protect his mate and offspring and usually, in the ideal, shares his general knowledge of the ‘outside’ world, the world in which his offspring eventually will enter.

At least these were the parental duties until the rise of the feminist, Leninist, and black racist revolutionaries in our America the past generation or two…..and the ignorance, black and feminist revolutionary hysterics pushed into the nation’s educational systems from K through graduate school in the social “sciences” of Marxist studies to force all to be equally obedient and ignorant……in the name of “equality”.)

 

Selling Fascism in Minnesota’s Edina Public Schools

HOW LEFTIST INDOCTRINATION RUINS A SCHOOL SYSTEM

by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

I wrote here about left-wing indoctrination in the Edina, Minnesota public schools. As a local story, it has been explosive. As a national story, it is a warning to normal parents and students everywhere. Leftism in the Edina schools is the subject of the cover story in the current issue of Thinking Minnesota. I highly recommend the article, written by veteran Twin Cities columnist Kathy Kersten.

The Edina controversy actually kicked off with a presentation that I did to a group of 120 or so in Edina, six days before the magazine hit the streets. My speech was attacked and misrepresented on Facebook and elsewhere by liberals who, of course, didn’t see it.

The speech was recorded, and the video, which is about 28 minutes long, is now on YouTube. You can watch it and judge for yourself whether I am a “white supremacist” or a “neo-Nazi,” as local liberals claim.
