Happy Harvey Milk Day?
Lawmakers in the state of California are proposing a law that would require schools to portray lesbians, homosexuals, transsexuals and those who have chosen other alternative sexual lifestyles as positive role models to children in all public schools there.
“SB 48: The worst school sexual indoctrination ever” is how officials with the Campaign for Children and Families describe the proposal, SB 48, sponsored by state Sen. Mark Leno.
Openly homosexual, Leno boasts on his website of founding a business with his “life partner, Douglas Jackson,” who later died of AIDS complications.
[…] California also has mandated that public schools honor Harvey Milk – a homosexual activist and reported sexual predator, as well as an advocate for Jim Jones, leader of the massacred hundreds in Jonestown, Guyana.
SaveCalifornia.com led a statewide battle against “Harvey Milk Day” before California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the S.B. 572.
The bill designates May 22 – Milk’s birthday – a date of “special significance” and encourages all California public schools to “conduct suitable commemorative exercises … remembering the life of Harvey Milk and recognizing his accomplishments as well as the contributions he made to this state.”
One can only shudder at the thought of what the California legislature might consider to be “suitable commemorative exercises”…
I’m O.K., You’re A Homophobic, Racist Bigot
And now for a brief visit with the people who decide what’s normal and what’s not:
Discrimination is always high on the agenda at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s conference, where psychologists discuss their research on racial prejudice, homophobia, sexism, stereotype threat and unconscious bias against minorities. But the most talked-about speech at this year’s meeting, which ended Jan. 30, involved a new “outgroup.”
It was identified by Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist at the University of Virginia who studies the intuitive foundations of morality and ideology. He polled his audience at the San Antonio Convention Center, starting by asking how many considered themselves politically liberal. A sea of hands appeared, and Dr. Haidt estimated that liberals made up 80 percent of the 1,000 psychologists in the ballroom. When he asked for centrists and libertarians, he spotted fewer than three dozen hands. And then, when he asked for conservatives, he counted a grand total of three.
“This is a statistically impossible lack of diversity,” Dr. Haidt concluded, noting polls showing that 40 percent of Americans are conservative and 20 percent are liberal. In his speech and in an interview, Dr. Haidt argued that social psychologists are a “tribal-moral community” united by “sacred values” that hinder research and damage their credibility — and blind them to the hostile climate they’ve created for non-liberals.
Sounds to me like there’s too much DRD4* and not enough testosterone in that room…
*the ‘liberal’ gene–DRD4 is the first specific bit of human DNA that predisposes people to certain political views
Allen West and Herman Cain demonstrate that black is beautiful when it’s Red, White and Blue:
“They call me racist too because I disagree with the president who happens to be black. Go figure. So mathematically, the only conclusion that you can draw, it ain’t about color, it’s about if you disagree with the liberal leader, then you must be a racist. No matter what color you are. I got a breaking news announcement for you: You are not a racist, you are patriots,” Herman Cain told a cheering CPAC audience.
And here’s Oprah, proving that black is never pretty in pink:
Oprah Winfrey doesn’t like those mean critics of President Obama. (I do not remember her addressing critics of President George W. Bush the same way.) According to Politico:
Oprah called on President Obama’s critics on Friday to “show some level of respect.”
“I feel that everybody has a learning curve, and I feel that the reason why I was willing to step out for him was because I believed in his integrity and I believed in his heart,” the influential TV host said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in Chicago.
