Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time: How the oppressed have privilege and the privileged must be oppressed.
First, a little mood music:
Remember, if you are oppressed, then you are more equal than others.
“The Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, from Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., is aimed at setting minimum standards for detention facilities where thousands of illegal aliens are kept as they await processing. Among other things, it would bar the use of private detention facilities and make sure government-run facilities meet minimum standards as defined by the American Bar Association.
“But the bill goes further by seeking to exempt several groups of illegal aliens from any detention at all. It creates a “special rule for vulnerable persons and primary caregivers,” and says these aliens “may not be detained” unless DHS can demonstrate that it is ‘unreasonable or not practicable to place the alien in a community-based supervision program.’
“Under the bill, ‘vulnerable person’ is defined as anyone who is under 21 or older than 60, pregnant, or who ‘identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex.’ Other vulnerable aliens are those who are a victim of or witness to a crime, anyone who has filed a nonfrivolous civil rights claim in court, anyone with a workplace claim, and those with a ‘serious mental or physical illness or disability.’”
Even something like firefighting is racist and must be made woke through readings of Ibram Kendi.
“Of all the jobs in a standard fire department, a lieutenant’s is among the most difficult. When a fire truck approaches a blaze, the lieutenant decides how to tackle it—what windows to breach, which floors to prioritize, and how best to deploy the truck’s three or four firefighters against a shifting, inanimate enemy.
“To see if they’re up to snuff, most departments administer a written test, typically multiple-choice, to prospective lieutenants. Candidates must score above a cut-off to be considered for the job, with higher scores increasing the odds of promotion. The exam, which covers a litany of topics from building construction to medical techniques, is designed to ensure that the people making life-and-death decisions know the bare minimum to make them well.
“So firefighters in Seattle, Washington, were surprised when their department’s lieutenant exam focused almost as much on social justice as on firefighting.
“The test, which has both written and oral components, is based on a list of texts assigned by the Seattle Department of Human Resources—including, as of this year, How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi and Both Sides of the Fire Lane: Memoirs of a Transgender Firefighter by Bobbie Scopa, according to a copy of the exam bibliography obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
“Along with A Leader’s Guide to Unconscious Bias and Fighting Fire, a memoir by a female firefighter, the books about race and gender span over 800 pages—a large fraction of the total study material.”
Normal sexuality (i.e. being attracted to the opposite sex and wanted to perpetuate the species) is not a “genital fetish” and straight men are now “gynosexuals” and no different from lesbians.
“People who are attracted to women or femininity may be ‘gynosexual,’ according to an article published in Men’s Health magazine last month.
“‘The number of terms and identities under the LGBTQ+ umbrella is ever-growing, allowing more and more people to describe their sexuality with words that make sense to them,’ the article began. ‘One word you may not have heard that is helping some people express who they are is “gynosexual.”’
“The article is making rounds on social media after the outlet shared it Monday on Twitter, prompting backlash and making some people scratch their heads about why exactly the new gender-neutral term is being pushed to replace straight men and lesbian women.”
