    Ohio public university to pay $400,000 in damages after punishing professor over preferred pronoun controversy
    Professor sued Shawnee State University, claiming it violated his First Amendment rights.

    A public university in Ohio will pay $400,000 in damages and attorney fees after punishing a professor for declining a male student’s demand to be referred to as a female.

    Nick Meriwether, a philosophy professor at Shawnee State University, responded to a male student’s question during a January 2018 political philosophy class by saying “Yes, sir.” When the class ended, the student identified to the professor as transgender, and demanded to be referred to as a woman in the future, along with “feminine titles and pronouns,” according to the Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented the professor in court. Doing so, Meriwether maintained, would have violated his convictions as a Christian.

    Meriwether didn’t agree to the student’s request, and court documents state that the student became belligerent and told the professor that he would be fired.

    The Democrat conspiracy unfolds, bigger than Watergate and ignored by the lib marxist media (are you listening bbc?):

    Durham says CIA found data alleging Trump-Russia connection not ‘technically plausible,’ and was ‘user created’

    In February, Durham said data was exploited “by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump,” adding the data was used to establish “an inference” and “narrative” tying Trump to Russia.

    Durham’s original indictment alleges Sussmann told then-FBI General Counsel James Baker in September 2016 — less than two months before the 2016 presidential election — he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and held a meeting where he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communications channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.

    The indictment alleges that Sussmann lied in the meeting,

    But Clinton lawyer Sussmann is moving to preclude evidence concerning the “gathering” of that “DNS data” by “Tech Executive 1,” who has been identified as Rodney Joffe, and his associates.

    BBC News of color

    Tübingen in Germany is known for its fiercely green reputation, where veganism and environmental friendliness are the default setting.

    Die Public

    Tübingen is, like Heidelberg, known for its historical beauty and their universities, definitely not for its „veganism“ which is anyway a positive side effect of the many students who live there.

    Will no one rid us of this meddlesome priest?
    Henry II

    The broadsheets are at pains to remind us this weekend that the Church of England is now little more than the Liberal Democrat Party at prayer.

    PM’s Rwanda plan is “against the judgement of God” – archbishop‘ – the Observer there, known as the Guardian on Sunday, is suddenly born again Anglican.

    Shipping migrants to Africa is ungodly, Welby tells PM‘ (Sunday Times) – as one understands how these things work these days the archbishop’s PR department will have pre-released the script of his upcoming speech (call it a sermon if you will) to the eager press corps so as to make the headlines today – perhaps he has also copied in Boris, out of courtesy, which would at least make the grammatical tense employed in that pre-emptive headline true.

    Rwanda plan is ungodly, says Welby‘ – repeats the Sunday Times, however: ‘…as second country proposes similar deal‘ – so at least Britain isn’t uniquely ungodly.

    But wait, we’re good people here in the UK, right? ‘This policy cannot claim to be popular. No 10 cannot blame the people for it‘ – opines Sunder Katwala in the Observer.

    Senior Tories fear Partygate will alienate traditional vote‘ (Observer) – really? Names, please? ‘Writing in today’s Observer, former immigration minister Caroline Nokes, said she was sticking with her decision to submit a letter of no confidence in the prime minister‘ – incidentally, this somewhat desperate new Rwanda policy rather tends to highlight a complete public lack of confidence in the previous running of the immigration department. Anyway, Caroline Nokes? Who she?

    Brexit rebel Caroline Nokes: Boris Johnson’s Conservatives ‘all over the place’… Caroline Nokes, who has been MP for Romsey and Southampton North since 2010, said her decision to defy the party whip on Tuesday came as a result of Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament in the critical weeks before the Brexit deadline on October 31.’ (Euronews September 2019) – well you could have knocked me down with a feather.

    One quoted the outspoken historian David Starky recently and it seems appropriate to do so oncemore. Growing up as the son of Quaker parents he recalled boyhood hours spent at the local Meeting House where there was no formal structure to worship. Instead, Friends would speak as the spirit happened to take them. Starky remarked how it dawned on him how remarkable it was that the Holy Spirit invariably spoke in the attitudes, tones and accents of the Manchester Guardian.

    Yuval Levin, the right-leaning American political pundit has expressed the notion of the sad demise of our historic institutions of western culture, as they become little more than platforms for performative virtue-signalling, self-aggrandising, leadership figures, who rise to the top and yet care nothing for the traditions or continuity of their institutions… eh, Justine Welby?

    As more evidence comes to light about the Far Left Blue Labour Tories and their madcap Rwandan tranfer of bogus asylum seekers I wonder if it was just a facade for them to pander to their supporters whilst setting the scheme up to deliberately fail.

    I think most readers by now no longer believe the Tories to be a centre right party and now at least as far Left as Red Labour, if not even more.

    If they give up that pretence then they would have to garner votes from Red Labour and a new party would probably be formed, which actually was centre right to take their place.

    As we now find out this morning the Blue Labour loons have handed a fellow leftist pro migrant legal campaign group £17500 of taxpayers money for them to legally challenge the Rwanda policy which they have set up to fail.

    They will then blame the courts and the leftist lawyers whilst hoping to dupe their supporters which will undoubtedly work.

    Something to cheer everyone up:

    London park named after four-time prime minister William Gladstone could be renamed ‘Diane Abbott Park’ by Labour Council as part of their slavery review.

    Other mooted ideas included calling the green space, which has loved by the public for 121 years, ‘BAME park’, ‘multi-faith park’ and ‘diversity fields’, the Telegraph reports.

    Left-wing councillors at Brent Council said they continuing ‘engagement’, pending a final decision on a new name for Gladstone Park, which has been running since the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests.

    William Gladstone, a four-time Prime Minister who described slavery as the ‘foulest crime’ in history, was described by Brent Council as a ‘historical figure whose views, in association with the slave trade, are inappropriate’.

    Gladstone Park in northwest London could be renamed after Diane Abbott MP
    Schoolchildren as young as five asked for suggestions for public space’s name
    They were earlier briefed on the killing of George Floyd and ‘systematic racism’



    • Guest Who says:

      Well I recall a good briefing session with our toddlers.

  10. Sluff says:

    Listening to Toady on Sunday and deduced the opinion of the BBC based on the coverage, air time given to various (I.e. one) viewpoints, and tone of voice.

    1. The UK should let in absolutely anyone claiming asylum
    2. Sending asylum seekers to Rwanda is wrong.
    3. People arriving by boat across the channel should not be treated differently to Ukrainians.

    How very impartial. Not.
    In other words, entirely as expected.

    BBC: Hey it’s Easter the most Holy Christian festival, I know lets get some muzzies, sikhs, agnostics and pagans onto a Christian pilgramage and of course a disabled lapsed Christian.

    Job done possibly offending Christians but hey who cares. Lets stick it on BBC ONE to really stuff it up them.

    Seven celebrities of differing faiths and beliefs set out in search of St Columba, an Irish monk born 1,500 years ago who helped spread Christianity from Ireland to Scotland.

    Those starring in The Pilgrimage: The Road to the Scottish Isles include interior designer and TV personality, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, who describes himself as a non-conforming pagan; England cricketing legend, Monty Panesar – a practising Sikh and actress, Louisa Clein, who is Jewish.

    Joining them are TV personality Nick Hewer – an agnostic with Catholic roots; social media influencer, Scarlett Moffatt – a Christian; comedian, Shazia Mirza – a Muslim; and Paralympian, Will Bayley – a lapsed Christian

    I just love winding up lefties and Boris’s Rwandan scam is making them apoplectic. They’re frothing at the mouth. It’s brilliant…

    Sadly, I don’t think anything tangible will actually be achieved with operation Rwanda, more’s the pity. I do however think it’s a brilliantly cynical move to distract from all the other problems the government is facing.

    It’s automatically corralled people into two specific groups. Those of us who believe this could be great and those squealing “liberals” who think Boris is behaving like a 1930s dictator. Everybody is squabbling about something that won’t happen, giving Bunter a bit of breathing space.

    And there’s the added pleasure of seeing the BBC, Guardian, Sky et-al having a collective hissy fit.

    Love it…

    ‘The BBC must end its addiction to divisive racial politics ‘

    ‘They are practicing the language of Critical Race Theory (CRT), an American academic thought experiment that attempts to solve racial inequalities but, in fact, ends up exacerbating them. It centres on the belief that whiteness itself is the cause of many of the issues that we face – and thus to negate racism, whiteness must be diminished.

    The BBC has pledged, through its charter, to “bring people together and help contribute to social cohesion and wellbeing”. That could not be more divergent from the radical ideology that seems to have captured New Broadcasting House.’


    A spot-on analysis by Calvin Robinson in The Telegraph of the BBC’s adoption of the racist and divisive CRT theory as policy….something that is designed to generate hate, distrust and disunity, a toxic message that is all but demanding ethnic cleansing of White culture, history and its very DNA….literally….they want to breed you out and wheel in The Great Replacement….this was actual Labour policy…to ‘brown Britain’…..even the Guardian admitted mass immigration of people who don’t share our values is a huge risk… ‘ immigration on the scale that Europe has experienced constitutes a risky experiment to which we need not have submitted ourselves, and of which the final result is not yet clear.’

    The final result is becoming clearer day by day as Blacks and Asians [and the BBC] mount a war against our society….as Douglas Murray notes…


    ‘The war on the West: DOUGLAS MURRAY examines how Western civilisation and all its astonishing achievements in culture, science, medicine and free thinking are being erased from history as the product of ‘dead white males’’

    How many times these days do you hear Blacks talking to Blacks or Asians talking to Asians about how dreadful white people and white culture and society is and how ‘whiteness’ is a problem? Getting more and more frequent on the BBC….as is the demand for ‘whiteness’ to be eliminated….hmmm…just how do you do that? #KillWhitey?

    A classic example of this was the BBC’s ‘Culture on the Couch’ yesterday on which we were told that white psychotherapists can’t treat non-whites because they just don’t understand non-white culture and communities.


    ‘The idea of psychological universalism arose from a white, Western model of therapy which frustrated Ramaa because it didn’t adequately embrace her distress over conflicts specific to her experience of being of Indian descent and raised in the UK. ‘

    What we need is ‘culturally-appropriate mental health care.’ and apparently Whites can’t do that for non-whites….so what is needed is a network of non-white therapists……er, apartheid treatment….

    ‘We hear from therapists and psychologists about how mass movements like Black Lives Matter have accelerated the move away from universalism along with the growth of networks of black and Asian therapists and the NHS now promising to deliver more culturally appropriate mental health care.

    Social media support groups like Brown Girls Rising on Facebook help to bring thousands of young women together from diaspora communities globally to support each other in the absence of adequate systemic support in the countries they live in.’

    Hmmm….this is so much bunkum…complete trash…pure outright racism and black babble.

    On this basis an old, white, Christian, male, healthy, straight, well-off, English therapist could not treat women, gays, trans, young people, the poor, anyone not English, Jews, Muslims etc etc….or, lol, indeed anyone with a mental illness because he himself doesn’t have one so he couldn’t possibly understand the patient’s situation!

    So he’s not Black or Asian…but he is a professional, intelligent and trained person….I’m pretty sure he could quite easily quantify the problem by, er, asking questions and diagnosing the problem from there and coming up with a solution…..tell me about it…oh…your parents are very strict, it’s an Asian thing, you hate them…OK…we’ll go from there.

    If a therapist isn’t allowed to treat people who come from a different background to his or her own that’s kind of a limitation isn’t it? Lol.

    How can any person offering services work under such criteria? How can teachers teach or politicians politic or indeed media people cover stories they have no actual personal experience of?

    Remarkable how an Asian journalist feels able to talk about White abilities and professional therapy and claim a white therapist can’t cope with Asians and yet she is not a therapist nor white and so cannot, by her own logic, possibly understand how they work or if their lack of living in an Asian society means they can or cannot possibly comprehend an Asian patient’s problems.

    This is classic BBC apartheid identity politics….always telling Bames they are utterly different to Whites and their culture and they’ll never fit in…so the answer is to set up a parallel Black or Asian society whilst always telling Whites they are the problem[when the problem is Blacks and Asians coming here…might suggest fit in or go home]

    I’m sure that’ll end well.

    The furious Twitter staff foot-stamping reaction to the Musk affair shows once and for all how left-wing biased and vindictive the Company and it’s employees really are.

    I guess the people on the right now can clearly see it as the enemy of both them and free speech in general.

    Anyone vaguely middle or right of centre should ditch this vile Company and it’s products right away, let them blather amongst themselves.

    libmob hate Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire
    cos he very pro-Brexit and anti-open-borders

    Then Twitter today forces this at me
    Readers criticise Andrew Bridgen after The Times reported on a High Court judge’s ruling which could result in the North West Leicestershire MP being referred to the parliamentary standards watchdog
    The MP said in a statement: “The judge has made his judgment and some of it is disappointing reading for me… exploring all avenues with regard to legal options to obtain a just outcome.”

    Basically he owns the biggest chunk 45% of the family farms businesses, he’s been suing his brother for years cos he says he was forced out after h became an MP
    He used to earn £90K /year salary from the businesses.

    His brother says , no Andrew left of his own accord during his divorce settlement cos he wanted to reduce the money his ex-wife could collect.
    Clearly the judge has to believe one side or the other, and he’s picked the brother’s side.
    Obviously sometimes judges call it wrong .. so I guess Bridgen will be thinking about appealing.

    Below the Times story there appear to be 128 hatey comments, as if all from Labour’s human Twitter-bot army.

    The Twitter summary misses the final line from the MP
    “In actuality I won the case and my brother will be compelled by the court in due course to repay considerable sums of money back to the businesses”


  17. Zephir says:

    Astounding that Welby can stand there and lie to such an extent today: “there is no such thing as an illegal asylum seeker” and they are all fleeing war” etc

    War in Calais ?

    or intent upon stealing UK taxpayers resources at all costs and defrauding the UK homeless out of housing ?

    Around 1766 invaders have arrived across the Channel this week so far.

    Fact: Our children/grandchildren will never be able to walk around safely in this country again.
    Twitter is full of tales of people and children being followed/photographed etc. e.g. here, quite apart from the rape jihad gangs operating on an industrial scale.

    All protected by evil Welby and his ilk.


  19. vlad says:

    Talking of which, the BBC aren’t reporting this:

    “Over 80 dead in jihadist attack on Christian villages in Nigeria”

    I guess Black Lives Don’t Matter to the racist BBC, at least not Christian Black Lives slaughtered by muslims.

    I haven’t heard Welby speak out about this latest slaughter, either.


    In other news, last month there were 169 Islamic attacks in 24 countries, in which 929 people were killed and 939 injured.

    Hey, what do you expect? It’s Ramadan, the season of Peace and Goodwill.




  20. Zephir says:

    Muslims and violence seems to go hand in hand.

    Easter Sunday violence at Jerusalem holy site Al-Aqsa mosque leaves nearly 20 injured after clashes between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli police

    Israeli police entered the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem’s Old city to secure the way for Jewish visitors after Palestinian protestors ‘defiled and desecrated’ holy site by setting off fireworks and throwing stones at buses


  21. pugnazious says:

    Funny old thing…..the BBC seems on the side of the Muslims ‘outraged’ that someone might burn a copy of the Koran in Sweden and are busy rioting in protest….the BBC not at all concerned about the Muslims’ ‘backlash’.


    This is the same BBC that refuses to honestly and fully report Muslim terrorism and attempts to impose Muslim rule over us just in case there is a ‘backlash’ against Muslims…..happy for Muslims to backlash, not happy for non-Muslims to backlash….even though fully justified in doing so.

    Muslims can murder children and behead soldiers in the streets but let’s not get angry, let’s not question the ideology that drives such savagery and racism.

    Brendan O’Neil said…

    ‘Stop and think about how strange it is, how perverse it is, that more than 20 of our citizens have been butchered and we are basically saying: ‘Everyone calm down. Love is the answer.’ Where’s the rage? If the massacre of children and their parents on a fun night out doesn’t make you feel rage, nothing will. The terrorist has defeated you. You are dead already.’



  22. pugnazious says:

    The BBC still refusing to admit that a Black man who shot people in NYC is an extremist racist Black nationalist…in fact the BBC actually now dodges even the minimalist information that they published before….

    ‘Police have not given a motive for the attack, though authorities have said Mr James had posted black nationalist rhetoric and bigoted rants online and “made various statements about the New York City subway system”, including about homeless people on the subways and “various conspiracy theories”, according to court documents,’

    This is the new version….spot what’s missing….

    ‘No details about his alleged motive have yet been provided.

    According to prosecutors, he published a variety of videos online making statements about the New York City subway system, occasionally addressing New York City Mayor Eric Adams as he complained about the “homeless situation” on subway cars. ‘

    If this had been a white man the BBC would be publishing every word and trying hard to link him to Trump however tenuously ala Tommy Robinson and the Finsbury Park guy.

    Here’s some of his comments that the BBC ignores…from The Spectator….


    ‘ Media responses to James’s peculiar online life have been ambiguous. The New York Post coyly suggests that he ‘complained about race issues’. The New York Times vaguely describes him as having ‘harshly bigoted views’. Let’s be blunt: he hates white people. ‘White people and black people,’ he says in one video, ‘should not have any contact with each other’. ‘They hate your guts,’ he says, speaking to his fellow blacks. ‘Nothing can happen differently than what happened over in Europe with the Jews.’

    James doesn’t feel much love for black people either — as long as they associate with whites, that is. (‘We have a lot of house negroes out here today,’ he declares in one monologue, ‘like the ones that flag my videos down.’) Dwelling on the fact that Supreme Court appointee Ketanji Brown Jackson is married to a white man, James dismisses black people who might be angered. She is white, he claims, in a spiritual sense. Only her skin is black.

    ‘We should be coming closer together,’ he says elsewhere, fretting about the similar domestic arrangement of Susan Rice. ‘We should be more close-knit than everybody else.’ ‘We invented mathematics,’ he sighs, ‘but we surrendered all that for a handful of trinkets.’ Despairing, James huffs that if black people are not willing to ‘do the work’, they might as well go extinct.

    James makes a point of emphasising his independent-mindedness. He criticises the ‘negro mob mentality’, which holds, in his mind, that all black people should think and speak as one. Still, he seethes with racial animus. One video that has been deleted but apparently copied and uploaded to Twitter appears to show him stalking through a city while screaming about ‘white ugly racist motherfuckers’, ‘stinking sp*cs’ and ‘wetbacks’. ‘

    No such allowances whatsoever for the likes of US ill educated white rednecks or the likes Tommy Robinson and his followers of course, even young teenagers.
