WHITE men need not apply

Leftist racism never stops

That’s the message from a Democratic National Committee data services manager, currently on the hunt to fill multiple vacancies in the tech department.

The political organisation, which routinely makes grand statements about inclusion, recently sent an email to its employees looking to recruit people for eight open spots including IT Systems Administrator, Product Manager and Chief Security Officer.

Though the October 30 email says that the DNC is looking for a “staff of diverse voices and life experiences,” it apparently doesn’t mean white men.

DNC’s Data Service Manager Madeleine Leader purportedly wrote in an email that the desire for diversity excludes “cisgender straight white males”.

Leader adds, “I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, as they are already in the majority.”

Cisgender is a term for people whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned to at birth.

“The email in question was not authorised by the DNC nor was it authorised by senior leadership,” spokesman Michael Tyler told Fox News. “All hiring decisions at the DNC are made consistent with the DNC’s commitment to equal employment opportunity and hiring an inclusive and talented staff that reflects the coalition of the Democratic Party, because our diversity is our greatest strength.”

The Daily Wire, which first reported the incident, posted a screenshot of the email sent to DNC insiders.


There's No Such Thing as 'Lone Wolf' Jihad

So another radical Islamist went on a murderous rampage. Surely, the connection is obvious ... right?

Eight people were murdered and 11 injured in New York City Tuesday in the latest jihadi terrorist attack with a truck. Five of the victims were Argentine citizens, and another was Belgian.

 Not surprisingly, witnesses say the suspect yelled “Allahu Akbar!” as he exited the rented truck/murder weapon. Fox News reports, “The man accused of plowing into New York pedestrians Tuesday had a printout of an ISIS flag in his car and left behind handwritten notes pledging his loyalty to the Islamic State, as a clearer picture emerged Wednesday morning of Sayfullo Saipov’s alleged links to the terror group.” Police shot him and he remains in the hospital.

So another radical Islamist went on a murderous rampage. Surely, the connection is obvious … right? Wrong!

“All the evidence we have suggests that he was acting alone,” New York’s Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo insisted. “The so-called ‘Lone Wolf syndrome.’”

Except Cuomo then proceeded to contradict his own assertion, adding correctly, “You have to remember a couple of years ago [the Islamic State] telegraphed this — that they were going to individual acts, they said, ‘Use a knife, use a car, use a truck, use whatever you can get.’ That’s what this was.”

But then he went back to his first position of willful blindness and obfuscation: “We have no evidence whatsoever that this was anything other than a person acting individually. We have no evidence that it’s connected to anyone or anything, or there are any follow-up measures.”

Never mind the evidence Cuomo had just presented. Indeed, Saipov used the same method and vile catchphrase that so many other jihadis have used and promoted.

Let’s be clear, again. There is no such thing as a “lone wolf” jihadi attacker. As Mark Alexander explained, “These attacks and those to come were and will be directly tied to worldwide Jihad by way of the Qur'an, the foundational fabric linking all Islamist violence.”

Not all Democrats are so blind as Cuomo. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said, “We have to expect that as the capital of the [Islamic State] caliphate has now fallen, there are going to be increasing efforts to show that they remain dangerous and lethal, and to expand the virtual caliphate.”

Uzbekistan, Saipov’s country of origin, increasingly has become a hotbed for Islamic State recruiting. And Saipov came to the United States seven years ago under the Diversity Visa Program, which President Donald Trump and the GOP aim to eliminate.

Trump responded to the attack on Twitter, saying, “We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!” Furthermore, he said, “I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!”

Not when lives are at stake.

Footnote on a First: NY Mayor Bill de Blasio actually called this terrorist attack a “terrorist attack,” and not a New York second too soon!


NYC Foreign Terror Suspect Entered U.S. With ‘Diversity Visa’ Trump Wants To End

29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the immigrant from Uzbekistan who murdered at least eight people in Manhattan on Tuesday, arrived in the United States seven years ago under what is called the Diversity Visa Program, a program that President Trump and the GOP have been trying to eliminate.

As The Washington Post explained:

Each year, the Diversity Visa Lottery, as it is officially known, provides up to 50,000 randomly selected foreigners — fewer than 1 percent of those who enter the drawing — with permanent residency in the United States.

In February 2017, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the RAISE Act, which stated:

To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to establish a skills-based immigration points system, to focus family-sponsored immigration on spouses and minor children, to eliminate the Diversity Visa Program, to set a limit on the number of refugees admitted annually to the United States, and for other purposes.

On August 2, 2017, the White House announced President Trump would back the RAISE Act. The White House statement read, “The RAISE Act eliminates the outdated Diversity Visa lottery system, which serves questionable economic and humanitarian interests.”

On October 8, President Trump sent a letter to “House and Senate leaders & Immigration Principles and Policies” in which he outlined his plans for immigration. In section 3, titled “Merit-Based Immigration System,” Trump wrote, “Eliminate the 'Diversity Visa Lottery.'”


UK: Woman injured as feminists and transgender groups fight at Speakers’ Corner

Nutcase versus nutcase

A 60-year-old woman was pushed to the floor and punched in the face during a row between feminists and trans activists at Speakers’ Corner.

Police are investigating the incident which saw two groups, the Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs) and Trans Activists, fighting in Hyde Park on Wednesday.

TERFS believe that trans women aren’t real women and should not be given the same rights.

Maria MacLachlan, a ‘gender critical feminist’, was attacked at Speakers’ Corner in London’s Hyde Park at about 7pm on Wednesday.

She told the Mail on Sunday: ‘‘These studenty-looking types were turning up and some arguments started to take place but I kept well out of it.’

‘I thought, “I can film this, it will be interesting.” They were getting louder and louder. Then suddenly someone tried to grab my camera. It was scary. Someone kept trying to get my camera. I think it was a girl, but I couldn’t tell because they had a hoodie over their eyes.’

Ms MacLachlan ended up with a bruise on her face, red marks on her neck and grazed knees, her camera also was smashed and memory card stolen. She added: ‘I didn’t go to hospital but it has really shaken me up.’

Ms MacLachlan later identified a trans-woman as one of her attackers.

She was in Hyde Park with 50 fellow TERFs waiting to find out a secret location for a talk entitled What Is Gender? The Gender Recognition Act And Beyond.

Several groups threatened online to protest at the event, including LGBTQ+ Society from Goldsmiths University, Sisters Uncut, and Action For Trans Health London.

The secret venue for the speech was the University Women’s Club in Mayfair which also saw tensions run high after protesters located the club.

Feminist Jen Izaakson said: ‘The staff had to form a human chain to let our people in and keep protesters out.’’

Action for Trans Health London said: ‘We condemn violence against women in all forms. We’re proud that many self-organising activists, allies and supporters stood against hatred, misogyny and intimidation.’



Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.
