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.

University Madison Students Want Religious Freedom for Muslims… But Not Christians!

By Team Crowder | 12 Mar 2017

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: college is filled with walking butt gaskets. It’s low on the list of great investments right now (read Dear High School Students: Don’t Go to College. No Seriously…). After all, no need to pay to be surrounded by SJW craziness when you can join us as we laugh at them for free. Let the giggle fits commence…

Welcome to UW-Madison. Or, welcome back. Crowderheads have been here before (see Univ. of Wisconsin Offers Class on ‘Problem of Whiteness’ and University of Wisconsin Creates Absurd New List of ‘Racist Microaggressions’). When it comes to act of moronic political correctness, ’tis a frequent offender. Today we bring you the latest in, “As Religious Freedom Turns.” UW-Madison students seem to think some religious deserve rights, while others not so much.

Banana Peels and …. Racism?

By Anthony Gockowski | 31 Aug 2017

A Greek Life retreat at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) was promptly cancelled this weekend after a banana peel was found hanging in a tree.

“To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT,” Interim Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Alexa Lee Arndt remarked in an email between Greek leaders, according to The Daily Mississippian. “Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure on a daily basis, the conversation manifested into a larger conversation about race relations today at the University of Mississippi.”

After word of the banana spread throughout the retreat, leaders decided to end the event early. Arndt explained that she “felt it was imperative to provide space immediately to students affected by this incident.”

According to The DM, some students left the retreat in tears, with McNeil noting that they “didn’t feel welcome” and “didn’t feel safe.”

Pranksters Clog UF Hotline to Protest Costume Guidelines

Campus Reform

A hotline for University of Florida students to report culturally insensitive Halloween costumes has backfired after a Fox Sports commentator instigated a series of prank calls to the number.

UF sent a newsletter to students on October 10 encouraging them to avoid Halloween costumes that could “perpetuate negative stereotypes” or cause “harm and offense” to other students, and urging anyone offended by such costumes to call a 24/7 counseling and wellness hotline.

The hotline quickly turned into a running joke, however, after Fox Sports commentator Clay Travis prank called the line during one of his live shows, pretending to be a gay student offended by a Harambe costume.

“I went to a fraternity party last night and there was somebody dressed as Harambe, the gorilla, and I found it to be really racially insensitive,” Travis said on the call. “It’s really disappointing that the University of Florida is not taking my microaggressions seriously because, I mean, I’m really upset about this costume that I saw.”

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.

Smashing Pumpkins Singer Smashes Social Justice Warriors

From Truth Revolt
5.19.2016 | Sarah Fisher

“We live in a world where one word could destroy your life but it’s OK to, if you’re a social-justice warrior, spit in somebody’s face.”

72916127MM011_writer

Former lead singer Billy Corgan of the 90s grunge band Smashing Pumpkins ripped into the Social Justice Warrior movement in a recent interview.

The singer explained,

“When I watch some of the clips … of some of these protests, I have no respect for what these people are doing,…They’re shutting down free speech. … I just don’t get it. To me it’s antithetical to the society that I believe in. But I try to listen to their argument… The tactics in the social-justice warrior movement are to stifle and shut down free speech,” he said. “And I would argue in the world that I live in, which is the bareknuckle world, they’re leveraging their position because they don’t have power.”

Corgan astutely observed how the simple “wrong” use of a word, could ruin his career:
