The Alt Right’s Popularity is a Liberal Creation

“I want to climb the social ranks and push a hard right conservative agenda and create a rift between libertarians and conservatives and split up the base,” reads one text shared with the Weekly. “Also it’s fun.” (Editor’s Note: This is just one of many examples we have of Alt-Right shenanigans.)

The curious Colombian-American [Johnny Benitez] is also set to speak at the event he helped organize. But for all the machismo he now boasts, Cadavid played the part of an ardent feminist trying to organize exploited women spa workers just this February. Under his “Sterling Abrade” alias, Cadavid sent an email to a local progressive activist back then wanting to raise awareness about the troubles of his industry with not-so-nice comments about Trump.

“The same principal with which Donald Trump used to cheat small businesses he knew could not afford to take him to court is used against the women of the spa industry,” Cadavid wrote in the Feb. 2 email shared with the Weekly. “With an attempt to pass a national anti worker bill that would destroy California’s worker protections and the election of a president who has no respect for women, it is especially important to stand up for women being oppressed in the spa industry.”

Cadavid detailed wage theft and workplace grievances—including the practice of shifting around clients who sexually harass massage therapists rather than outright banning them. (Quick aside: Cadavid blamed the Weekly’s exposé for being fired because we mentioned his occupation, though he freely made the disclosure to the San Francisco Chronicle before making the claim on Facebook). A month after the email, Cadavid attended the Huntington Beach MAGA march in launching his Alt-Right Johnny Benitez persona. Accordingly, it’s not bad bosses, but foreigners “overtaking” the spa industry that rubs Cadavid the wrong way nowadays—even though he’s says online that he wasn’t born in the U.S. himself.

Idea whites ‘responsible for every evil’ drilled into students’ heads

‘Not only in class, but at orientation, in their social settings’.

How did American college campuses get to the point where all of the ills of Western Civilization are blamed on white male students?

Scott Greer, author of “No Campus for White Men,” recently told national talk-radio host Laura Ingraham the problem is widespread.

“It doesn’t matter where you go,” he said. “You can be going to a conservative, red state public university or you could be going to Oberlin, and you’re going to be hearing this dogma repeated throughout, that all whites, no matter their background, beliefs, or when their ancestors came here, they’re all responsible for every evil that has ever been committed by Europeans.”

Greer said the idea is “drilled into their heads not only in class, but it’s drilled in at orientation, in their social settings.”

“This is not leading to any social harmony on campus. All it’s leading to is more division, more conflict, more people feeling like they’re oppressed victims who see racism everywhere they go,” he said.

BBC Prosecutes 180,000 Brits Every Year, Mostly Women, So They Can Pay Millions to Celebrities

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) this week, finally, had to publish what it pays its top staff. Sure enough, the revelations have caused outrage, with Brexit-hating celebrities profiting from Auntie’s profligacy.

Some of their stars autocue monkeys have since expressed little contrition over their greed at a cost to the BBC licence fee payer, but perhaps they don’t know just how many lives they are ruining, or their victims?

Remember, the BBC licence fee is a coercive, regressive tax. It costs £145.50 ($189.00) for every television owner in the United Kingdom who watches any live television. If you fail to pay up, the corporation will send round hired goons who get bonuses for catching what they call “evaders” such as a war veteran with dementia, and a young mother in a women’s refuge.

In fact, the BBC disproportionately targets women when it prosecutes for licence fee evasion, as The Register noted just days before the salaries were released:

Of the 184,595 people across the UK charged with non-payment of the TV Licence by Capita TV Licensing, 21,300 were found not guilty – and 90 people were jailed for failing to pay court-issued fines. The figure for charges includes out-of-court disposals.

140,000 of those charged were taken to court, where an astonishing 101,000 women were found guilty.

Memorials promote ‘white heterosexual male supremacy,’ profs claim

Public museums and memorials serve our nation’s “foundational commitments to white heterosexual male supremacy,” according to two Texas A&M University professors. The two Women’s Studies professors argue in a recent article that most commemorative sites are problematic because they “support, not challenge, mainstream democratic values and figures.”

Public museums and memorials serve our nation’s “foundational commitments to white heterosexual male supremacy,” according to two Texas A&M University professors.

Tasha N. Dubriwny and Kristan Poirot, both of whom teach Women’s Studies at TAMU, advanced the claim in a July 12 article in the Southern Communications Journal, further alleging that U.S commemorative practices serve an inherently conservative agenda.

“Scholars consistently argue that U.S. commemorative practices and traditions promote historical narratives that are inherently conservative in nature,” they write. “This is particularly true of ‘official’ sites of public memory like memorials and museums.”

Museums and memorials, they explain, “are likely to support, not challenge, mainstream democratic values and figures,” reinforcing “key aspects of American mythology, including a national dedication to equality, liberty, work, sacrifice, ingenuity, and heroism.”

No Latin American Country Has Branded Hezbollah a Terror Group Despite Ties to Major Attacks

Latin American countries have failed to register Iranian proxy Hezbollah as a terrorist organization despite the threat it poses to the region, a Peruvian official revealed during a discussion on Capitol Hill.

The Shiite group is involved in various illicit activities in Latin America to generate money that some experts believe is used to fund terrorist activities in the Middle East.

During a discussion Wednesday on Capitol Hill hosted by the Center for a Secure Free Society (SFS), Moises Vega de la Cruz, a public prosecutor for the Peruvian government specializing in terrorism cases, revealed that “in Latin America, Hezbollah is not recognized as a terrorist organization.”

“I think Hezbollah is a threat to Latin America. Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that is advancing not only in Peru but in other Latin American countries as well,” he told Breitbart News.

Joseph Humire, an expert on Iranian activity in the Western Hemisphere and executive director of SFS, noted that no Latin American country has registered Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

The United States and the European Union have deemed Lebanon’s Shiite group Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

CA bill to make criminals out of those refusing to use transgender pronouns

According to the text of SB 219, titled the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights, “it shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to…. willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.”

Last month, Canada passed a law that threatens anyone refusing to use transgender pronouns with fines and jail time. Not to be outdone, a state senator from San Francisco has a similar proposal, SB 219, here in California nearing final approval that is getting almost no attention.

Greg Burt, with the California Family Council, testified against SB 219 last Tuesday, a bill that will inflict fines and jail time on any long-term care employee who refuses to use transgender pronouns. Fines for repeat offenders could be as high as $1000, with a jail term of up to a year.

“How can you believe in free speech, but think the government can compel people to use certain pronouns when talking to others,” Burt asked members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee during his testimony. “Compelled speech is not free speech. Can the government compel a newspaper to use certain pronouns that aren’t even in the dictionary? Of course not, or is that coming next?”

According to the text of SB 219, titled the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights, “it shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to…. willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns.”

The Fifth American War by Victor Davis Hanson

The country is coming apart, and the advocates of radical egalitarianism are winning.

The wars between Trump, the media, the deep state, and the progressive party — replete with charges and counter-charges of scandal, collusion, and corruption — are merely symptoms of a much larger fundamental and growing divide between Americans that is reaching a dangerous climax.

On four prior occasions in American history the country nearly split apart, as seemingly irreconcilable cultural, economic, political, social, geographical, and demographic fault lines opened a path to hatred and violence.

During the Jacksonian Revolution of the 1830s, factions nearly ripped the country apart over whether the East Coast Founders’ establishment of a half-century would relinquish its monopoly of political power to reflect the new demographic realties of an expanding frontier — and its populist champions often deemed unfit for self-governance. For the most part, the Jacksonians won.

Chinese state influence advances: Company with Communist Party ties eyes Grouse Mountain (Video)

“There’s a sense of alienation in our own city leaving people wondering Vancouver is essentially becoming a colony for the Chinese 1% to park their money in and inhabit.”

The Chinese takeover of Vancouver continues. Late last week it was reported that local ski hill and tourist destination, Grouse Mountain, will be sold to China Minsheng Investment Group, a company with strong ties to the Chinese government and the Communist party.

With the number of deals involving Chinese state controlled or connected companies buying Canadian businesses, some with national security risks ignored by Justin Trudeau and his cabinet, Canadians should be feeling a little uneasy.

By now, Vancouverites are noticing how quickly our city is changing as hundreds of millions of dollars in mainland Chinese money has been parked in our real estate market.

This creates havoc as wages and economic opportunity in the city aren’t keeping up with the increase in housing and rent prices due to this influx of foreign money.

NYU Librarian Claims Dealing With White People At Work Gives Her “Racial Fatigue”

New York University librarian April Hathcock claims that she “hit her limit” after spending five days being “tone-policed and condescended to and ‘splained to” by “white men librarians” and “nice white ladies.”

As reported by Campus Reform, Scholarly Communications Librarian at NYU April Hathcock claims in a blog post titled “Post-ALA Race Fatigue.”

“I just spent the last 5 days at the American Library Association annual conference in Chicago, and I am suffering serious race fatigue,” the post reads.

Citing a ThinkProgress article, Hathcock’s piece goes on to explain that race fatigue is “a real physical, mental, and emotional condition that people of color experience after spending a considerable amount of time dealing with the micro- and macro-aggressions that inevitably occur when in the presence of white people. The more white people, the longer the time period, the more intense the race fatigue. ”

The post continues, “its been 5 straight days of being tone-policed and condescended to and ‘splained to. Five days of listening to white men librarians complain about being a ‘minority’ in this 88% white profession – where they consistently hold higher positions with higher pay – because they don’t understand the basics of systemic oppression.
