REDSkins

Exalted Communications Czar FCC Chaircritter Tom Wheeler has decided that he doesn’t like the football team name of “Redskins.”

“I don’t use the term personally, and I think it is offensive and derogatory,” Wheeler told B&C/Multichannel News at a wireless conference in Las Vegas. “I am a Civil War buff,” he pointed out, “and there were a lot of terms that were appropriate at that time that aren’t appropriate any more.”

Even when left-leaning (cough) Public Policy Polling can only dredge up 18% support for changing the Redskins’ name, those who know what’s best for us insist on destroying yet another word from our language.

It is a beautiful thing, the destruction of words…

Didn’t *someone* once say “keep your laws out of my bedroom”?

Look what happened with no public notice and no public input:

Bill 967, which passed unanimously and is also known as the “yes means yes” law, stipulates that colleges will receive state funding only if they adopt certain policies regarding sexual assault, chief among them being “an affirmative consent standard.”

The measure, Senate Bill 967, by Sen. Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, comes in response to increasing public attention on sexual assaults on college campuses.

Not an increase in incidence of assaults: “increasing public attention.”

This recent legislation reflects a growing trend to criticize our current sexual culture as one which condones sexual assault, a crisis often referred to as “rape culture.” Some of the criticism is valid, but, by and large, this new discourse renders women as either receivers of, or victims in, the phallic pursuit of sexual satisfaction. These measures and the discourse which invigorates them ratify a double standard into law and have the potential to pervert justice.

Because the term “Sexual Assault” — and “Rape” — has come to mean way more than an assailant jumping out of the bushes or sneaking thru the halls forceing his …attentions… on women. “Sexual Assault” is now defined as an “unwanted touch” or an “unwanted comment” —“lookin good baybee!”.

“the potential to pervert justice” Potential.

So 20% [twenty percent] of females on college campuses now report “sexual assaults.” [From my college experience some years ago, 20% seems kinda low for “recipient of randy behavior from young males.” Apparently, all that tofu, behavior mod, and metrosexual fashion really is working.]

Here, the Ancient .Gov demonstrates one of the steps you must get signed consent for:

For sexual activity to be lawful, .”.

Yep. “For sexual activity to be lawful”

For sexual activity to be lawful, ”affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” must be given. The bill goes on to assert that “Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time.”

“yes. Yes. Yes! YES!!” heard from the room next door now has new meaning.

What happened to the ancient agreement wherein [how do I put this delicately?] if a lady goes past a certain point with a gentleman she is quite fond of, she is obligated to …follow through with her promises? So young ladies are counseled by their elders [moms and sisters] to be cautious how far they let things go, lest they be guilty of false promises. Much as young gentlemen must be cautious about making false promises of their own…

It seems that the very structure of a man is not only being ignored but maligned. Why, then, are not young women guilty of “sexual assault” for walking about in short-shorts [and UGGs - but that’s the Fashion Police] and tube tops, advertising — teasing — what is not and will not be available? At least not without prior written consent.

Mutual respect and a question of character: *p00f* gone. Tkx Proggies!

[SECTION 1. Section 67386 is added to the Education Code, to read:…] (1) An affirmative consent standard in the determination of whether consent was given by both parties to sexual activity. “Affirmative consent” means affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. It is the responsibility of each person involved in the sexual activity to ensure that he or she has the affirmative consent of the other or others to engage in the sexual activity. Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time. The existence of a dating relationship between the persons involved, or the fact of past sexual relations between them, should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.

Here’s the nut of the matter: “67386. (a) In order to receive state funds for student financial assistance,” each college in CA must abide by this pack of foolishness.
[I am gonna assume here that “The Accused” is going to be the guy and “The Complainant,” the female, cuz it’s the Anti-Phallic Brigade is calling the shots.]

(2) A policy that, in the evaluation of complaints in any disciplinary process, it shall not be a valid excuse to alleged lack of affirmative consent that the accused believed that the complainant consented to the sexual activity under either of the following circumstances:

(A) The accused’s belief in affirmative consent arose from the intoxication or recklessness of the accused.

(B) The accused did not take reasonable steps, in the circumstances known to the accused at the time, to ascertain whether the complainant affirmatively consented.

They actually had to write it down that “I was drunk so what the hell” is not a “valid” excuse?!?!?

Here’s real dealio — the payoff:

(d) In order to receive state funds for student financial assistance, the governing board of …[all public and private college-type institutions] shall implement comprehensive prevention and outreach programs …[which] shall include a range of prevention strategies, including, but not limited to, empowerment programming for victim prevention, awareness raising campaigns, primary prevention, bystander intervention, and risk reduction.

IOW: $$$,$$$ for the Phallus = Rape crowd.

Do NOT teach women that Life Is Dangerous; Protect Yourself.
DO teach women guurlz that Men R Bad and It’s All Their Fault. Also VICTIM.

Clapper goes under the bus

Well I think, our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria. [much more, GRTWT]

They, not Obama.


Maybe if he’d'a paid attention to his intel briefings.
Maybe if he didn’t have his head up his ass about the nature of the enemy.
Maybe if he had a real-world viewpoint.
Maybe if he had appointed an honest, competent DNI.
Maybe if he actually understood what his friggin’ job was.

Maybe etc.

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then (do so), … If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies.

Colleen Hufford, the 54-year-old woman who was savagely beheaded by a deranged co-worker [Alton Nolen], was working at Vaughan Foods … [She was] the first person who crossed his path…

A classmate of Nolen’s, … told this newspaper that according to the [Nolen’s] family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark [sic], Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.
