Amazing, yes, that there isn’t one Caucasoid amongst them, eh wot?
However, I suggest that those students are sexist, handicappist, racist, weightist and religionist, as they clearly appear to lack an Islamist in the mix, a transgender Albanian dwarf, a cross-dresser, a bald lesbian, a fat Tongan, a person in a wheelchair and a convicted felon.
UC Irvine Student: US Flag Banned to Avoid ‘Triggering’ Hurt Feelings Among Illegals
by Adelle Nazarian
UCI student Matthew Guevara, who sits on the Student Association board, authored the resolution (R50-70) to ban the U.S. flag from the association’s lobby wall. The resolution passed narrowly on Thursday in a 6-4 vote in favor, with two abstentions, but was overturned and vetoed on Saturday during a private meeting held by the Associated Student’s Executive Cabinet by a 4-1 vote.
Imagine that. The American flag voted as offensive by some ignorant puerile male with a Mexican name.
Penned by Matthew Guevara, a student in the school of social ecology, the resolution stated: “Designing a culturally inclusive space aims to remove barriers that create undue effort and separation by planning and designing spaces that enable everyone to participate equally and confidentially.”
“The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” the resolution continued. “Flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism, but also construct cultural mythologies and narratives that in turn charge nationalistic sentiments.”
The resolution noted that in certain spaces “freedom of speech” can be interpreted as “hate speech.”
The American flag is, therefore, colonialistic, imperialistic, nationalistic.
And finally, there it is, admitted by Leftists:
“Freedom of speech” can be interpreted as “hate speech.”
Leftsts admit that is where they want to go. They are the final arbiters of what can be considered “hate speech” and what cannot. They are the “deciders-in-chief” of who can say what, and the concomitant penalties for straying.
The “ban,” however, didn’t remain in place for terribly long.
Four days after its birth, the radical push to remove national symbols from student government facilities was dead. On Saturday, student leaders vetoed the resolution, according to the Times.
Because of this incident, Fornicalia may decide to address the issue legislatively — and how said is that?
On Friday, state Sen. Janet Nguyen (R-Santa Ana) told the AP that legislators may introduce a state constitutional amendment prohibiting “state-funded universities and college campuses from banning the United States flag.”
A student who spoke with Breitbart News on condition of anonymity that she heard a member of the ASUCI discussing “the [American] flag and how it triggered people.” She then said she believed a major line of reasoning behind the legislation to remove the flag could have been a “precautionary step” to prevent a trigger situation where if someone is an “illegal citizen or [they] have citizenship issues, it makes them feel bad.
“But me and my friends were like, ‘Dude, you’re in America. It’s the American flag,’” she added.
The issue, according to her, was that the flag was placed in a common space, and she felt that if it were placed in a private area like a personal office, it would not have been a big deal. “And then there were people who were like ‘the flag triggers me’ — that was their exact wording, too.”
She added: “Everything can be a trigger. How far is it going to go? If everyone says something bothers them about a shared space then that could be a problem because then there will be nothing on any walls.”
How far will it go?
It will go as far as allowed, until there is pushback and common sense injected. In this case, common sense and pushback have won the day.
I must apologize, up front, for the common sense and the facts and the logic. I further apologize for not immediately sparking, lighting and ramping up the jejune flames of emotion and illogic.
Leftists would have us stop with the logic, stop with the statistics, stop with the common sense. If something “feels” innately good, well, then, it simply must be good according to primeval emotions.
But emotions didn’t build fire, and emotions didn’t discover the wheel. Necessity and survival did. As did the piles and piles and piles of dead bodies required to discover these things through trial and error.
Let there be no mistake: Mr Whittle speaks for me.
And let there be no further mistake: the Fornicalia Department of Justice (DOJ), under current Governor Jerry Brown, who is a Leftist abortion-on-toast that immediately disbanded the BNE (because CNOA opposed Brown as governor) and, having fired numerous DOJ agents, is once again re-hiring 40 said personnel in order to specifically target firearms enforcement and firearms confiscation in the state. Let my DOJ readers weigh in.
Fornicalia AG Kamala Harris is another Leftist apologist for Leftists, a despiser of law enforcement, and a sniveling jackanape-of-a-disciple of Barack Hussein Obama due to philosophy and shared melanin counts — may he ascend towards godhood. Little g. Kamala Harris: no death penalty for a dead SFPD officer, eh wot? Good for you. Time to take a stand against law enforcement.
All: prove to me that this is incorrect or improperly reported.
The Second Amendment exists to prevent tyranny. It exists to prevent people from, at its base, government.
Defiant and reflective, 80-year-old Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio told Breitbart News after winning re-election that he has a message for President Barack Obama: granting amnesty to illegal immigrants is unfair to legal immigrants.
Ladies and gentlemen, in my 40+ years in law enforcement — federal, state and county — I can’t tell you how much I would have loved to have worked for Sheriff Joe Arpaio in my career. His fundamental honesty, his integrity, his clarity, has diminished my past Sheriffs into dust:
- Scott Jones — I’m awaiting his potential “legacy” – John McGinness — the greatest disappointment in the history of my department – Lou Blanas – Glenn Craig – Robbie Waters
They were all sucking sycophants for votes.
The last “honest” Sheriff my county had was Duane Lowe. He drank, he suspended deputies, he made edicts; if you pissed him off he remembered you. But he brought my department into the 20th and then the 21st century. God bless him. He typified “Old School.”
The others: a sad commentary. They were mostly empty suits with one exception: Lou Blanas actually cared about his deputies.
“I wish the president would invite me to the White House,” Arpaio told Breitbart News. “We’ll have some wine and beer, and light up cigars.”
When it comes to potential amnesty provisions being discussed in Washington, Arpaio said he is against amnesty because, to him, it is a fairness issue the elite media and career politicians in Washington do not understand.
“It’s a fairness issue, nobody thinks about that,” Arpaio said. “Why should we reward people who come here illegally?” Arpaio noted that “everybody around the world is waiting for years to come here” and “they don’t all come sneaking in.” “I’m an old-time guy, I just use common sense,” Arpaio said.
