Whole Foods sues customer who falsely accused it of putting anti-gay slur on cake

In the first video shown below, A Whole Foods customer shows what he claims is an “unopened” box for the cake that he bought at Whole Foods, and shows that there is an anti-gay slur on the cake. He points out that the price sticker on the side and bottom of the box proves that the box has not been opened.

The customer then sued Whole Foods over the slur.

In the second video, Whole Foods responds by showing its security footage, which shows that when the customer bought the cake, the price sticker was actually on top of the box, not on the side, thus proving that the customer had indeed opened the box.

Whole Foods is now countersuing the customer for knowingly filing a false lawsuit.

I hope Whole Foods wins its lawsuit.

Apparently, wearing your own culture’s clothing is a form of cultural appropriation!

Social justice warriors at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are demanding that two students of Arabic heritage be expelled from the college because they wore Arabic clothing!

Let me repeat: the “offending” students – the students who were accused of “cultural appropriation” – are of Arabic heritage and were wearing Arabic clothing.

Those two students are in the bottom right of the picture, shown below.

The social justice warriors also want everyone else in the picture expelled too.

After being told that the two students wearing Arabic clothing were themselves of Arabic descent, one of the social justice warriors who had demanded their explusion said:

“Although that story might justify on an individual level, it does not justify on a systemic level because when people see it, they don’t know that story. When they see it, they see it as a justification for wearing cultural costumes.”

Four different social justice oragnizations at the college – “Students for Justice in Palestine,” “Black Students for Revolution,” “Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan,” and “Campus Union for Trans Equality and Support” – all joined together to form a brand new social justice organization called “Not Just a Party at UIUC” (NJAP).

Apparently, it never occurred to them that the acronym “NJAP” contains a racial slur.

That they would form a brand new organization in response to some students having a party that consisted of consenting adults is absurd.

That they would demand that everyone who attended the party be expelled is also absurd.

That they would consider it “cultural appropriation” when students wear clothing from their own culture, well, that’s absurd too.

Here is another bogus claim that a gun “accidentally went off”

Here is another bogus claim that a gun “accidentally went off.”

The claim is wrong.

That is not what happened.

What did happen is that some idiot human being pulled the gun’s trigger.

This moron, who shot and killed his own four-year-old daughter, violated all three of the three most important gun safety rules:

1) Always assume that the gun is loaded.

2) Never point the gun at anyone you don’t intend to shoot.

3) Don’t put your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to shoot.

If you go to the book section at amazon and search for “Hillary Clinton accomplishments”

If you go to the book section at amazon and search for “Hillary Clinton accomplishments” (without the quotes), the third item listed is my new 99 cent kindle book called “1,202 well sourced examples of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, waste, etc.”

I wanted to give it away for free, but amazon made me charge 99 cents.

The free preview at amazon contains the first 100 items, and I am perfectly happy if people write reviews based just on the free preview. Click the words “look inside” on the image of the book’s cover to read the free preview. (Of course I also don’t mind if you actually buy the book.)

Obama wants to replace 175 years of U.S. military law with Islamic law

On a personal level, I am against dress codes.

However, I also respect that there are certain organizations that have dress codes, and if I were to choose to be at one one of those organizations, I would obey whatever dress code they had.

Under Commander-in-Chief Obama, who has never actually served in the military, the Citadel, a 175-year-old U.S. military college, is considering giving its first ever exception to its dress code, and it’s doing so for religious reasons. Not for a Christian, not for a Jew, not for a Hindu. It’s for a Muslim.

Because, as Obama himself has said, one of his favorite sounds in the world is the Muslim call to prayer.

Every time that Obama treats Muslims and Christians differently, it is always, always, always the case that he sides with Muslims over Christians. This is just one more example. And it’s disgusting.

Muslims truck drivers get fired for refusing to drive trucks filled with beer? Obama sides with the Muslims.

Christian bakers don’t want to bake cakes for gay weddings? Obama sides against the Christians.

In Syria, Christians make up 10% of the population,  are they being targeted for the worst kinds of persecution.  However, during the two weeks after Islamist terrorists murdered 130 people in Paris, of the 132 Syrian refugees that Obama admitted into the U.S., 100% of them were Muslim, and 0% of them were Christian.

After Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar!” and murdered 13 people on U.S. soil, instead of referring to it as “Islamic terrorism,” Obama said that it was “workplace violence.”

Obama chose to marry a woman who said that, as an adult, she never loved the U.S. until after Obama got elected President. At the time, she had been an adult for 26 years. And this person who did not love the U.S. for 26 years is the person whom Obama chose to marry.

Donald Trump is an asshole. But at least he loves the U.S., and respects its traditions and values.

Social justice warriors harass fast food employee who is just trying to do her job

This one fast food employee has more work ethic, integrity, and respect, than all of these social justice warriors combined:

‘Fight for 15′ Protesters Invade Fast Food Restaurant, Invite Worker to Go on ‘Strike’ — Just Watch How She Responds

April 15, 2016

A group of “Fight for 15” protesters invaded a Taco Bell restaurant in Austin, Texas, on Thursday and invited a worker to go on “strike” to demand more money and better working conditions.

The protesters’ message wasn’t well received by the employee, who said she just wanted to do her job.

After one protester informed her it was a “day of action,” the employee responded sharply, “This is also a job that I am trying to do.”

“Y’all are hindering my work, you may leave the building,” she added.

The apparent leader of the protest still finished his speech and invited her to go on “strike” and join the protest — but she didn’t seem interested in the least.

I hope a lot of the anti-vaccine people learn a lesson from this family’s sad experience

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-35975011

‘Anti-vax’ mother’s regret over whooping cough ‘nightmare’

April 6, 2016

An Australian mother has said she regrets refusing the whooping cough vaccination during pregnancy after she passed the potentially fatal infection to her newborn baby.

Cormit Avital said she had turned down the vaccination because she was a “healthy, fit, organic woman”.

She caught the disease shortly before giving birth and passed it to Eva, who has spent a month in intensive care.

Ms Avital recorded a video warning about her “nightmare” experience.

“If I could turn back time I would protect myself,” she said, in the video released by Gold Coast Health, the regional health authority.
‘A lot of suffering’

Ms Avital contracted whooping cough, also known as pertussis, around the time she gave birth, and was told she had passed it to Eva.

Within two weeks, Eva’s cough “became pretty scary, horror movie, coughing to the point of going blue, flopping in my hands, can’t breathe,” she said.

“For a moment there you think they’re dead in your hands. [It’s] a lot of suffering for a tiny little cute thing you love so much.”

What’s behind the ‘anti-vax’ movement?

The mother who is “angry as hell” with anti-vaccination movement

Gold Coast Health Staff Specialist Dr Paul Van Buynder told the BBC that Eva’s condition was improving.

She is likely to be released from hospital in coming weeks.

Dr Buynder said more than 20,000 pertussis cases were recorded in Australia last year, and “sadly this is becoming more common”.

“There’s always a feeling of pregnancy being this special state and you don’t want to put anything into your body, but what’s really bad for your baby is to get whooping cough or influenza”, Dr Buynder added.

Newborns are highly susceptible to the infection until they start vaccination at two months old.

NPR unintentionally reveals the existence of “black privilege”

This three minute audio segment from NPR is called “Blind hiring, while well meaning, may create unintended consequences.”

It says that “blind hiring” is a process where job applicants are interviewed by computer instead of in person, so there is no bias regarding gender or race. Applicants are given online tests such as doing a math problem, or writing computer code.

I think this is a great idea.

In the NPR audio segment, the “unintended consequence” of “blind hiring” is explained by a black female college student, who complains that under “blind hiring,” she would not get special treatment.

In the comment section, someone wrote:

“The response of the black female student to blind hiring shows that in today’s job market male whites are not the privileged group.”

I think that commentor makes a great point.

It appears as if NPR has unintentionally revealed the existence of “black privilege.”

Whoa! Check out Billy Joel’s heavy metal album from 1970!

In 1970, Billy Joel was the lead singer and organ player of a heavy metal band called Attila. The only other member of the band was a guy named Jon Small who played the drums. Both band members wrote songs for the band.

Here is their only album, titled Attila, from 1970. You can read more about the group at their wikipedia article.

Obama administration censors video of French president saying “Islamist terrorism”

George Orwell asked me to show this to you.

The video, which was originally posted at the White House website, goes silent for two seconds, beginning at 1:31.

 

http://www.mrctv.org/blog/video-wh-censors-reference-islamist-terrorism-french-president

The White House website has censored a video of French Pres. Francois Hollande saying that “Islamist terrorism” is at the “roots of terrorism.”

The White House briefly pulled video of a press event on terrorism with Pres. Obama, and when it reappeared on the WhiteHouse.gov website and YouTube, the audio of Hollande’s translator goes silent, beginning with the words “Islamist terrorism,” then begins again at the end of his sentence.

Even the audio of Hollande saying the words “Islamist terrorism” in French have, apparently, been edited from the video.

According to the official White House transcript of Hollande’s remarks, Hollande refers to “Islamist terrorism.” The audio of the text in brackets is missing from the video – the only point in the video were the audio is absent:

“We are also making sure that between Europe and the United States there can be a very high level coordination.

“But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, [Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within the framework of the coalition.] And we note that Daesh is losing ground thanks to the strikes we’ve been able to launch with the coalition.”

Watch the video of Hollande’s censored comment:

Dashcam video proves that journalism professor was lying when she said police stopped her for “walking while black”

I’d like to think that a journalism professor would be very much interested in telling the truth, and very much against lying.

However, that’s not always the case.

In October 2015, professor Dorothy Bland, the dean of the Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism and the director for the Frank W. Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism at the University of North Texas, wrote this column for the Dallas Morning News, where she claimed that the police had stopped her for “walking while black.”

However, a dashcam recording (shown below) proved that the police stopped her because she had been walking in the street, in the same direction of traffic, and blocking traffic, all while wearing earbuds, even though there were sidewalks on both sides of the street.

The police expressed concern for her safety.

Since blocking traffic is a misdemeanor, they asked for her ID.

Since she was wearing a hoodie, long sleeves, and long pants, and the police approached her from behind, the police could not have known her race before they stopped her.

Corinth Police Chief Debra Walthall said the police in the video handled the situation so well that she would start using the video to train police about the importance of using their dashcams.

Please keep in mind that professor Bland is a journalism professor. She teaches journalism students, who then go on to become journalists, news writers, and news reporters. How many hundreds, or even thousands, of these journalists, news writers, and news reporters have been brainwashed by professor Bland’s insistence on seeing racism in situations where there actually is no racism? And then, how many thousands, or even millions, of readers and viewers of these journalists, news writers, and news reporters will go on to unknowingly and falsely believe that racism exists in situations where it actually does not exist?

Video: San Francisco State University employee assaults white student for wearing dreadlocks

This is from yesterday at San Francisco State University.

A black female employee grabs a white male student, tries to stop him from walking, and criticizes him for wearing dreadlocks. Then she falsely accuses him of grabbing her (even though it was the other way around), and asks why everything is being filmed.

Obama administration said it “would welcome” an Islamic dictatorship onto the United Nations’ Human Rights Council

In 2010, Freedom House included Saudi Arabia on its list of “the world’s most repressive societies.”

On page 17 of this PDF, Freedom House wrote the following about Saudi Arabia:

Saudi Arabia is not an electoral democracy.

The country’s 1992 Basic Law declares that the Koran and the Sunna (the guidance set by the deeds and sayings of the prophet Muhammad) are the country’s constitution.

Political parties are forbidden, and organized political opposition exists only outside of the country.

The government tightly controls the content of domestic media and dominates regional print and satellite television coverage. Government officials have banned journalists and editors who publish articles deemed offensive to the ruling authorities or the country’s powerful religious establishment. The regime has blocked access to over 400,000 websites that are considered immoral or politically sensitive.

Religious freedom does not exist in Saudi Arabia. All Saudis are required by law to be Muslims, and the government prohibits the public practice of any religions other than Islam.

Women are not treated as equal members of society, and many laws discriminate against them. They may not legally drive cars, their use of public facilities is restricted when men are present, and they cannot travel within or outside of the country without a male relative.

However, in September 2015, after Saudi Arabia was put onto the United Nations’ Human Rights Council, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said

“… we would welcome it.”

Here are three major differences between Obama’s “Operation Fast and Furious” and Bush’s “Operation Wide Receiver”

Bush and Obama each had a program where the U.S. government put guns into the hands of Mexican criminals. Bush’s program was called “Operation Wide Receiver,” and Obama’s program was called “Operation Fast and Furious.” However, there were three major differences between the two programs:

First, Bush’s program was carried out with the knowledge, permission, and cooperation of the Mexican government, whereas Obama’s program was not. Mexican attorney general Marisela Morales told the Los Angeles Times that she first learned about Obama’s program from the news, and said, “In no way would we have allowed it, because it is an attack on the safety of Mexicans.”

Secondly, many of the guns used in Bush’s program contained radio tracking devices, whereas most of the guns used in Obama’s program did not. In addition, under Bush’s program, U.S. federal agents followed the guns to see whose hands they ended up in, whereas with Obama’s program, U.S. federal agents were ordered not to do this.

Third, Bush’s program did not cause any known deaths, whereas Obama’s program did.

Insane Republicans in North Carolina just passed a law which requires this person to use the women’s bathroom

It looks like the insane Republican lawmakers in North Carolina have consumed even more bat guano than they normally do. They just passed a law that requires the person in the photograph below to use the women’s bathroom:

The New York Times reports:

Transgender Law Makes North Carolina Pioneer in Bigotry

March 25, 2016

Under the law, people in North Carolina are required to use public restrooms that match the gender on their birth certificate. Transgender people in the state can request to have their birth certificate changed only if they have had gender reassignment surgery. Many transgender people cannot afford surgery or choose not to have it.

By promoting the ludicrous idea that transgender women are inherently dangerous, the law endangers citizens who are already disproportionately vulnerable to violence and stigmatization. Transgender men go largely unmentioned in bathroom bill debates, but that could change. James Parker Sheffield, a transgender man with a beard, exposed the foolishness of the law in a tweet to the governor. “It’s now the law for me to share a restroom with your wife,” he wrote, attaching a photo of himself.

Here’s the tweet and photograph in question:

In New York City, police arrested this law abiding black mailman who had not done anything wrong

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jDDs-CzF5E

A Mailman Handcuffed in Brooklyn, Caught on Video

March 25, 2016

Glen Grays, a 27-year-old African-American mail carrier, was making his rounds in Crown Heights, in Brooklyn…

Mr. Grays was descending the steps of his mail truck backward, as postal workers often do to minimize wear and tear on the knees, when out of the corner of his eye he noticed a car making a sharp right turn onto President from Franklin Avenue. Mr. Grays shouted at the driver, climbing back up the steps to avoid getting sideswiped. The black car, in Mr. Grays’s telling, came tearing back his way in reverse. The driver said to him, Mr. Grays recounted, “I have the right of way because I’m law enforcement.” The unmarked car held four plainclothes police officers, according to the Brooklyn borough president’s office, which has taken an interest in the case.

By the time Mr. Grays arrived at the front door of 999 President Street, the police were approaching him. A video of the incident, taken by an observer on the street, begins at this point and shows Mr. Grays, in his postal uniform, as he is handcuffed, frisked and taken to the unmarked car. The officers tell him to stop resisting, even though there is no evidence in the video of resistance. What the video does not show, Mr. Grays said, is what happened next, after he was placed in the back seat of the unmarked car, with his hands cuffed and without a seatbelt, compelling him to leave the mail truck unattended. The driver, who had turned around to taunt him, hit the vehicle in front of them, Mr. Grays said, causing him to bang his shoulder against the front seat. Mr. Grays was then taken to the 71st Precinct station, where he was issued a summons for disorderly conduct that will require him to appear in court. He was then released.

U.K. man arrested for making a tweet that some poeple say is offensive

My concern here is not about whether or not the tweet is offensive, as that is a matter of opinion.

My concern is that he was arrested even though the tweet did not contain any threats of violence. The fact that someone could be arrested for this non-violent tweet is absolutely horrible.

The Guy Behind the Viral ‘Mealy Mouthed’ Tweet Has Been Arrested in London

The allegedly anti-Muslim tweet spawned a wave of parodies

March 25, 2016

A British man who posted an allegedly anti-Muslim message on Twitter following Tuesday’s terror attacks in Brussels has been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.

Matthew Doyle was apprehended by police on Wednesday in the south London suburb of Croydon, the BBC reported. He subsequently “expressed concerns for his health” and was taken to a nearby hospital, according to authorities.

Doyle’s tweet, which has since been deleted, read: “I confronted a Muslim woman yesterday in Croydon. I asked her to explain Brussels. She said ‘Nothing to do with me’. A mealy mouthed reply.”

Tuesday’s attacks, which targeted Brussels Airport and a major subway station, claimed at least 31 lives and injured more than 100 others.

The tweet went viral and prompted several parodies on a variety of topics, ranging from Bono to muesli.

I confronted an Irish women yesterday in Camden. I asked her to explain Bono. She said “Nothing to do with me”. A mealy mouthed reply.

Doyle’s account, meanwhile, continued to tweet apparently racist messages and even retweeted a lot of the parodies insulting him.

The 46-year-old public relations executive told the Telegraph on Wednesday that Twitter’s 140-character limit made the encounter sound far more confrontational than it was. He also said his controversial tweets were meant as a joke.

“That’s absolutely not who I am,” he said. “I’m not some far-right merchant, I’m not a mouthpiece for any kind of racism or radicalism.”

However, he did add that he feels Muslims are not being vocal enough in denouncing terrorism.

“The horror that happened in Brussels could happen here,” he added, “and you’re naive if you think London isn’t on some terror shortlist.”

Poll: If you had two daughters, and could only give money to one of them…

In this video, the speaker says the government should stop giving money to women for having babies out of wedlock. She says the government should force the biological father to pay for raising the child, instead of the taxpayers.

She also says that if she had two daughters, and one had a baby out of wedlock and needed money to take care of the baby, and the other one got good grades in high school and needed money to pay for college tuition, she would give money to the one who wanted to go to college, and not to the one who had the baby out of wedlock. Her rationale for this is that we should reward good behavior, not bad behavior.,

I agree with her. I believe that we should reward good behavior, not bad behavior. I would give the money to the daughter who wanted to go to college.

Which daughter would you give the money to?

(Video contains lots of profanity.)

Concealed-weapon owner shoots hatchet-wielding attacker in Wash. 7-Eleven

It’s a good thing this store clerk was working in the U.S. instead of in one of those countries like Sweden or Japan where guns are banned:

Concealed-weapon owner shoots hatchet-wielding attacker in Wash. 7-Eleven

March 14, 2016

A masked man burst into a 7-Eleven near Seattle early Sunday morning, swinging a hatchet and slicing the store clerk.

Before the masked man could seriously hurt anyone, though, a customer who was drinking his morning coffee pulled out a concealed weapon and fatally shot the attacker.

Authorities did not name the attacker or the customer, but they did hail the concealed weapon owner as a hero.

“This could have been disastrous,” King County Sheriff Sgt. Cindi West told KIRO7. “Had this guy not shot, who knows what would have happened? We might have a dead clerk right now, and instead we have a dead bad guy.”

The clerk, Kuldeep Singh, suffered minor cuts to his stomach. He, too, thanked the customer for saving his life.

“He [was] killing me,” Singh, 58, said of the hatchet-wielding attacker. Singh added that the customer was a “nice guy.”

West said that the incident will be investigated fully but that the 60-year-old customer was currently being considered a Good Samaritan.

The “customer, the shooter, is shaken up but from everything that we see right now from the scene – there’s no wrongdoing on his part,” she told King 5. “In fact, he probably saved a life in this case.”
