The Week’s Most Seductive, Instructive, and Counterproductive Headlines
NIGEL FARAGE BOARDS THE TRUMP TRAIN
Nigel “Mr. Brexit” Farage joined Donald “Our Lord and Savior” Trump last Wednesday evening before a roaring crowd of 15,000 or Trumpeteers in Jackson, MS.
“The atmosphere in the room was more like a rock concert than a political meeting,” Farage would write in the Daily Mail:
Trump is strong on the immigration message and he is connecting, to the horror of the Washington establishment….Hillary represents the status quo where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. She is part of the Establishment that has led us into an endless series of wars….
Hillary Clinton, in a speech that we will cover far more extensively tomorrow, derided Farage as “one of Britain’s most prominent rightwing leaders…who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments” to win the Brexit referendum.
Meanwhile, a psychologist at Oxford University has declared that Donald Trump “outscores Adolf Hitler on a test used to determine psychopathic traits.” Trump edged out Hitler to fall in fourth place on the all-time historical psycho list, bested only by Saddam Hussein, Henry VIII, and Idi Amin. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton falls somewhere in between Napoleon and Nero, which sounds about right.
Trump campaign advisor and anti-TPP activist Curtis Ellis is catching heat for a column in which he unabashedly states that free-trade deals are designed to literally exterminate the white working class:
The party cadres set out to build their brave new world and eliminate their class enemies “ read: white working people. It is in this context that we understand why Clinton and company push so-called “free trade” deals like NAFTA and Obamatrade, corporatist schemes that move America’s manufacturing assets “ and jobs “ to Mexico, China and elsewhere. If you believe, as do the leftists, that America has more than it deserves and Americans are racists, the global redistribution of our wealth and the death (literally) of white working people is a desired outcome, a feature not a bug.
“STOP WHITE PEOPLE” PROGRAM OFFERED AT NEW YORK STATE COLLEGE
Last year a white student at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst was denied entry from a “Stop White People” luncheon on campus.
This year the State University of New York at Binghamton offered a program for resident assistants called “#StopWhitePeople2K16.” The school’s Associate Chief Diversity Officer, one Nicole Sirju-Johnson, said of the program, “I don’t see a problem with it.” SUNY Vice President of Student Affairs Brian Rose said that the phrase “Stop White People” originated from a Twitter hashtag that is “commonly used ironically” and that after a careful review, he and his team of crack expertise “verified that the actual program content was not ‘anti-white.’”
Glad they clarified all that, because we wouldn’t want some knuckle-dragging racist moron out there to think that a college program called “Stop White People” is anti-white.
FINALLY, A UNIVERSITY WITH BALLS
Standing in starkly gleeful contrast to the vast majority of American campuses where Cultural Marxism reigns supreme with the choking strength of a rustily screeching steel vagina, the dean of students at the University of Chicago sent a welcome letter to incoming freshmen that has been deemed “controversial” merely because it refuses to succumb to the rancid dictates of egalitotalitarian lunatics. Dean of students John Ellison writes:
Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called trigger warnings, we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual “safe spaces” where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own.
Praise be unto thee, University of Chicago. Thou art a breath of fresh air in the Windy City.
GERMAN NATIONALISTS SEIZE THE BRANDENBURG GATE…FOR A MOMENT
A group of 15 or so members of Germany’s Identitarian Movement climbed the iconic Brandenburg Gate on Saturday to unfurl a banner that read, “SECURE BORDERS “ SECURE FUTURE.” Members also handed out flyers bemoaning the fact that ethnic Germans were “becoming a minority” due to the country’s accelerating “Islamisation” via mass immigration. (An estimated million or more Muslim “refugees” poured into Germany last year alone.) The group called for Europeans to unite and build a “fortress” against creeping Islam.
Berlin’s mayor referred to the protest as “disgusting.” To our knowledge, he has uttered no equivalent moral condemnations regarding the ongoing mass rape of German women by Muslim refugees.
