Detroit Firefighter Fired for Bringing ‘Racially Insensitive’ Watermelon to Work

By Katherine Rodriguez | 8 Oct 2017

A Detroit firefighter was fired before he officially began his first day on the job for bringing a watermelon to work.

Robert Pattison, 41, introduced himself to his fellow firefighters at Engine 55 at the corner of Joy and Southfield in Detroit by bringing a welcome gift, WJBK reported.

Second Battalion Chief Shawn McCarty calls this welcome gift “a tradition” for Engine 55’s firefighters.

“It’s not mandatory, it’s voluntary,” he said. “You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in.”

Pattison, who was a probationary firefighter, decided to stand out from the crowd and bring a watermelon with a pink bow on top.

Some black firefighters were reportedly offended by Pattison’s gesture since 90 percent of the firefighters at Engine 55 are black.

People Are Calling For A Total Ban On Cotton Because — You Guessed It — Racism

By Jenna Green | 18 Sep 2017

A woman in Texas berated Hobby Lobby last week for selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.

Daniell Rider posted her complaint to the craft store’s Facebook page:

There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.

Daniell Rider, then received backlash for her sensitivity and responded to her critics:

All those who are offended by cotton being a decoration need to quit buying any product made of cotton!

Below is my response to this race-baiter  ~Angel

The following is a short list of products that are made with cotton or cotton/synthetic fabric blends:

  • T-Shirts
  • Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, and Hoodies (I suppose one could always go with fleece)
  • Bandanas (Antifa loons are gonna have to find something else to cover their cowardly faces with)
  • Denim (I am picturing protesters wearing polyester pants LOL)
  • Corduroy
  • Terrycloth (Towels, bath robes)
  • Sheets and Pillowcases (Most use cotton or cotton blend)
  • Canvas (Some is made using *gasp* cotton, some using linen)
  • Flannel (Some flannel is made using wool or synthetic fiber but a lot is made using cotton)
  • Underwear (For those of you who like the saggy pants look this includes boxer shorts)
  • Coffee filters
  • Fishing nets
  • Books
  • Tampons and Sanitary Pads (I suppose women can start using menstrual cups)
  • Bandaids and Gauze
  • Elastic bandages
  • Disposable diapers
  • Cloth diapers
  • Socks
  • Cotton seeds are delinted by a similar process to ginning. Some linter is used to make candle wicks, string, cotton balls, cotton batting, paper, and cellulose products such as rayon, plastics, photographic film, and cellophane.
  • Cottonseed oil is used in some margarines, salad dressings, cosmetics, soap, candles, water proofing agents
  • Yarn
  • Q-tips and Cotton Balls
  • Tires (Use of cotton in tires is limited – used mostly as a processing aid now)

Did you know that cotton remained a key crop in the Southern economy after emancipation and the end of the Civil War in 1865. Across the South, sharecropping evolved, in which landless black and white farmers worked land owned by others in return for a share of the profits. Some farmers rented the land and bore the production costs themselves.

And did you know that China and India are the two biggest cotton producers in the world? Also on the list: United States, Pakistan, Turkey, Australia, and Mexico.

And did you also know that slavery – yes slavery – is alive and well in the Middle East? Are you offended by THAT?

Who started this crap?

‘Ze, zem and zyr’ — today’s language insanity
By Linda Harvey | 4 October 2016

funny-demotivation-p-126

“Ze walks with me and ze talks with me, and ze tells me I am zyr own …”

Welcome to favorite hymns as they might be revised by Princeton, the University of Michigan and the diabolical American left.

Who knew the power of pronouns? At first glance, they seem innocuous.

But when oppression begins to supplant authentic justice, one of the first symptoms is the breakdown of ordinary language. George Orwell warned us; now America stinks from the rotten rhetorical fruit of decaying, toxic values.

It’s heartbreaking to say, but the smell of death surrounds us.

From “negative rhetoric about Islam,” and accusations of “hate speech” against homosexuality, revealing reality is the current great offense. New meanings for old terms have become the weapons to deliver fake justice and the rallying cries to rationalize sexual license, lawlessness, theft, revenge – you name it.

Feminists advocate the “reproductive rights” of other women to kill their children. “Sexual orientation” is the civilized policy term for men who prefer anal sex with other men, or women whose idea of a grand sexual experience involves plastic penises with other women instead of real male organs with real males.

And if you object, you are the problem. Increasingly your fair-minded, virtue-seeking, justice-exalting Christian life is probably expendable. Does the future include Planned Parenthood-type clinics for conservative believers? Will we be escorted to enter such “clinics” and never exit?

Is there a polite term for “Auschwitz”?

Oh, surely you are exaggerating, some will protest. After all, many recent examples seem on the surface to be just more left-wing silliness.

Military Members Taking a Knee During the National Anthem? — The Silent Soldier

I come from a military family and this pisses me off! If you can’t respect our flag and our country then you don’t belong in the military! ~Angel

#SJW | Pokemon Go, Safe Spaces, Coloring Books, Segregation, Trigger Warnings, and so much more

EXCLUSIVE: University Officials Sign Off On Literal Emotional First Aid Kit
An adviser and an assistant professor at the University of Houston showed support for providing students with an emotional first aid kit that would contain a baby blanket and candy among other things.
“The stress of school gets to them. Like a bad grade, a missed class, being late, a microaggression, uhh whatever,” Schindler said to O’Keefe about the emotional distress University of Houston students face.
 
Colleges turn to coloring books to de-stress students
In the age of safe spaces and trigger warnings comes another new trend to the college repertoire: coloring books. This fall, campuses nationwide are offering coloring books to students to help them de-stress.
At American University on Monday, its counseling center provided coloring sheets in honor of Healthy Campus Week, noting on its Facebook page that adult coloring books “can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues.” Conditions cited include obsessive-compulsive, eating, anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as anger management and substance abuse issues.
 
Mizzou Campus Activists and Black Lives Matter Complain About Paris Stealing the Spotlight
Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus.
So debased has the language on American campuses become that these incidents, which many observers believe to be hoaxes, just like previous campus scandals celebrated by progressive media, are being referred to as “terrorism” and a “tragedy” by moronic 20-year-olds who have never been told, “No.”

School allows partially clothed boy to ‘twerk’ in girls locker room
A Minnesota school is allowing a partially clothed boy to “twerk” in front of female classmates while they changed their clothes for physical education and sports events, prompting a federal lawsuit alleging violations of the Minnesota Constitution, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, federal law and the U.S. Constitution.
The law bans discrimination based on sex in public schools, but Obama is interpreting “sex” to also mean “gender identity” to allow boys who say they are girls to enter girls restrooms, lockers and showers.
It notes under the district’s policy the boy “dances to loud music with sexually explicit lyrics in the locker room while ‘twerking,’ ‘grinding,’ and lifting up his skirt to reveal his underwear,” according to the lawsuit.

Insanity | Neglect, Abuse, Rape, Murder of Children

Mother, boyfriend and cousin are arrested for brutal rape and murder of girl who was injected with meth, stabbed, strangled, dismembered and set on fire on her 10th birthday

On the day a girl was going to celebrate her 10th birthday, she was found murdered in her family’s apartment in New Mexico by police officers, her dismembered remains wrapped in a burning blanket.

Mother ‘stood by and watched’
The scene Wednesday morning in apartment number 808 of the Arroyo Villas complex was like something out of a horror movie. A man and a woman had allegedly drugged a little girl, then raped, killed and dismembered her.
Most would expect the girl’s mother to fight with everything she had to save her daughter. But Michelle Martens, according to her own reported account to police, is not that kind of mother.
In her statement to police, it appears that Martens wanted to watch as her boyfriend, Fabian Gonzales, 31, and his cousin Jessica Kelley, 31, raped her 10-year-old daughter Victoria Martens before killing her and trying to dispose of her body.

Mother of 10-year-old girl found dismembered on her birthday ‘offered her daughter to be raped by strangers online and by colleagues’
The mother of a 10-year-old New Mexico girl found dead and dismembered told police she sought men online and at work to sexually assault her daughter.
Michelle Martens told police that she had set up encounters with at least three men to sexually assault her daughter, Victoria Martens, the Albuquerque Journal  reported.
Michelle, 35, told investigators that one of the men was a co-worker. Two others she met online, including Fabian Gonzales, 31. He was to be the last.

Leftwing Lunacy: Trees & national parks are racist — Fellowship of the Minds

The mind of the Left is a strange thing. The way it works is this: If a racial/ethnic group is “underrepresented” in some institution, place or activity, the reason must be overt or covert racism. Being “underrepresented” means a group is not found in the same number or percentage in a particular institution/place/activity as they […]
