SJWs tried to boycott L. L. Bean because one of the owners donated to Trump. The result was this warm tweet from the president-elect:
Thank you to Linda Bean of L.L.Bean for your great support and courage. People will support you even more now. Buy L.L.Bean. @LBPerfectMaine
Prove him right!
Incoming Education Secretary Betsy DeVos donated $10,000 to FIRE! The organization does yeoman work fighting liberal fascism on college campuses.
So DeVos isn’t just interested in school vouchers, she has an interest in reforming higher ed! That should result in some impactful “Dear Colleague” letters.
Check out FIRE, and see if you want to help.
It is also not enough to be a nice person. Your niceness does not mean that you are not capable of contributing to racial systems of oppression.
It is not enough that you are sorry for the injustices caused by your people. It is not enough that you read one article on the Black Lives Matter movement because your black friend recommended it to you. It is not enough that you gave your black students extensions on their papers because Trump got elected.
But would lose the run-off to pro-borders conservative Francois Fillon. If those two make it into the run-off, France wins no matter what.
We know what a smartphone looks like and does. It’s not the fault of Tim Cook, but it’s not an area where there will be any more innovation.
The gods of technology (deus ex machina?) take offense when mere mortals make such statements. Remember when Microsoft was supposed to have a monopoly on computing? Or when we’d run out of oil? Or that other time we’d run out of oil?
If Thiel feels confident enough to declare that innovation in smartphones is dead, the gods of technology will prove him wrong. I look forward to the results.
Dowd: You like “Star Trek” more than “Star Wars.”
Thief: Deny. I like “Star Wars” way better. I’m a capitalist. “Star Wars” is the capitalist show. “Star Trek” is the communist one. There is no money in “Star Trek” because you just have the transporter machine that can make anything you need. The whole plot of “Star Wars” starts with Han Solo having this debt that he owes and so the plot in “Star Wars” is driven by money.
“You are Fake News!”
Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?
As a conservative, I essentially never encounter racism. I don’t have any racist friends or acquaintances. The issue never comes up. Liberals, on the other hand, tell us that they are swimming in a sea of racism. I don’t know, they might be right. Maybe in their liberal world, racism is still an issue.
