You might want to ignore this Guide

You probably already knew that the oddly-named Southern Poverty Center is just an SJW tool, but did you know that Steve Scalise’s shooter was a fan?  Not surprising.

Also not surprising is that another organization which claimed to be neutral has been taken over by Far-Leftists.  GuideStar (which I’d not heard of til now) was supposed to give folks wishing to make charitable donations a way to judge the worthiness of various organizations.  Considering the amount of mail I get from worthy-sounding causes begging for money, it sounds like a nice idea in theory, providing a way to easily verify that apparent worthiness.  But sadly GuideStar has gone the way of Snopes and CNN et al, pretending to be “neutral” while actually going full-SJW.  If this trend continues, “neutral” and “unbiased” are just going to be code words for SJW.

The Southern Poverty Law Center was too intolerant for the U.S. Army. Too controversial for the FBI. And too inflammatory for the Obama Justice Department. But despite SPLC’s baggage — which includes connections to two liberal gunmen — the extremists seem to have found a home at one of America’s leading charity indexes. After a fan of SPLC’s shot five people at last week’s congressional baseball practice, most people couldn’t distance themselves from the discredited group fast enough. Not GuideStar.

At a time when even the mainstream media is questioning SPLC, the charity index is rushing to embrace the “hate labeling” that inspired Floyd Corkins to walk into our lobby with the goal of killing as many people as possible. Now, just days after the shooting of House Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who is also branded an extremist on SPLC’s website, most people are shocked that GuideStar — whose calling card is its neutrality — would use the liberal organization as a resource. But justify it they have. Now, when potential donors search at least 46 conservative organizations, they’ll be greeted by a big red banner, alerting them that these charities were labeled “hate groups” by the SPLC, presumably to steer them away from contributing.

This sudden shift is less surprising when you consider the politics of GuideStar CEO Jacob Harold. A former employee of Greenpeace and the Rainforest Action Network, Harold isn’t exactly the poster child of objectivity. His social media accounts leave no doubt where his allegiance lies. According to our friends at Liberty Counsel, who are also victims of this smear campaign, “Harold was a host for a NARAL Pro-Choice D.C. men’s event in 2014, and he blogged for Huffington Post. He also donated to the Obama campaign in 2011 before joining GuideStar in 2012. His wife is also a pro-abortion advocate. Harold tweeted a picture of himself at the so-called “Women’s March” in January 2017, holding a protest sign obviously directed against President Donald Trump.” The message? “It turns out that facts matter.”

Well, Mr. Harold, they matter here too. That’s why 41 conservative groups and individuals are demanding that GuideStar remove the hate banners from their listings and return to their claimed position of neutrality that Americans expect.  In a letter protesting the move, the signers write:

“Your designations are based on determinations made by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a hard-Left activist organization. As such, SPLC’s aggressive political agenda pervades the construction of its ‘hate group’ listings.”

“The SPLC has no bona fides to make such determinations. It is not a governmental organization using rigorous criteria to create its lists, and it is not a scientifically-oriented organization. The SPLC is merely another ‘progressive’ political organization… The ‘hate group’ list is nothing more than a political weapon targeting people it deems to be its political enemies. The list is ad hoc, partisan, and agenda-driven. The SPLC doesn’t even pretend to identify groups on the political Left that engage in ‘hate.’ Mosques or Islamist groups that promote radical speech inciting anti-Semitism and actual violence are not listed by the SPLC even though many have been publicly identified after terrorist attacks.”

If anyone’s guilty of hate, it’s the organization defining it! SPLC’s own Mark Potok made no bones about the group’s ultimate agenda, saying, “Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate crimes and so on…. I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.” And they think Christians are the threat? What’s worse, SPLC is quite open about the fact that their labels are completely arbitrary. “Our criteria for a ‘hate group,’ first of all, have nothing to do with criminality or violence… It’s strictly ideological.”

Way to go GuideStar!  This is just a great group to use as guidance in labeling charities.

Giving in won’t save you

It sure looks like it’s done Hannity a lot of good to cave on the Seth Rich case:

Advertisers Bow to Activist Left, Begin Pulling Ads from Hannity

Companies including Cars.com, Peloton, and Leesa Sleep have all given in to pressure to cease advertising on the show over Hannity’s pursuit of now retracted claims made by Fox News that murdered DNC employee Seth Rich had contact with Wikileaks before his death.

On Tuesday evening, Hannity invited internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom onto his show to discuss his claim that Seth Rich had provided Wikileaks with internal Democratic party emails.

However, after Rich’s family sent a letter to Fox demanding that Hannity not host KimDotcom, the appearance was cancelled, with Hannity saying he made the decision “out of respect for the family’s wishes.”

“I totally and completely understand how upset and how hard this is on this family, especially over the recent coverage of Seth’s death,” he said. “I’ve been communicating with them. I got a very heartfelt note. I also sent them a heartfelt note back.”

“However, out of respect for the family’s wishes, for now, I am not discussing this matter at this time,” Hannity continued, although he later contended that he had “retracted nothing” and would continue to “try to get to the truth.”

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Hannity accused figures including George Soros, David Brock of Media Matters, and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of “liberal fascism,” after his advertisers were reportedly “inundated with emails” from left-wing groups asking them to stop advertising on the show.

He shouldn’t have gone along with the family’s wishes.  Since when have families’ wishes been even slightly considered by the media?  But this looks like it was a good opportunity for another stab at Hannity.  Their sexual misconduct trick fell through.  He’ll be let go soon enough.  I wonder if Razorfist is right about why Fox is purging conservatives.

Offense Taking is Immature

I’m not sure I understand exactly what our obligation to “not give offense” is when everyone is hair-trigger offended all the time.  But the rest is interesting.

“Being offended is a sign of immaturity because it’s an unwillingness to acknowledge and live in the truth”

“To choose to be offended is to choose to be a victim”

The Chinese understand SJWs

A Chinese insult comes with an almost perfect definition of what an SJW is:

Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”.

Convergence Kills (Businesses)

Barbie doll sales fall by 15% after a ‘curvy’ version is introduced along with others featuring different skin tones

She was given a more ‘curvy’ figure for the first time in an effort to make her more realistic to young girls.

But it seems Barbie’s image overhaul has failed to prove a hit – with sales tumbling by 15 per cent.

Despite an initial rise when the change was introduced last year, US makers Mattel said revenues dipped in the first three months of the year to £574million.

The toy giant brought in a more diverse range to counter criticism that the doll set an unrealistic body image for girls.

Those horrible awful people who are racist and fat-shaming monsters aren’t buying toys!  Don’t they see this is Current Year?  They need to get with the program.  Well, we don’t need their money anyhow.

That does seem to be, however, what some companies are saying.  We don’t need their money.  Don’t want to get those bigot cooties on you y’know.  This attitude is showing up in online advertising.

Now Barbie’s sales have been in a slump for years.  But taking the SJW pandering path clearly hasn’t helped.  Other companies are way ahead of them (all of the publishing industry for example) and they haven’t shown massive profits either.  The advertising companies who are now getting the vapors at the idea that a bigot somewhere, somehow is looking at their advertisements are going to strangle small, online content creators, but in doing so, they’ll be strangling themselves.

Further Fur

Fox Crimson over at Qu Qu Media provides a more serious look into what alt-furry is:

 

One thing still remains very clear and that is just how many people, even with the furry community at large, fail to grasp the sheer irony involved with altfurry as it began primarily as a reactionary movement whose purpose was to mock the extreme far left elements that had cropped up in the fandom in recent years. SJW’s, BLM sympathizers, punks, anarcho-communists and the like began whining louder than ever before following Trump’s victory on November 9th 2016. In the wake of Trump’s inauguration and the Berkley riots earlier this year, these fanatical leftists began demanding concessions that spilled over into the furry community. The more virulent among them began using passive-aggressive tactics to insult and shun anyone who didn’t adhere to their worldview.

What he describes sounds very similar to GamerGate in that many alt-furry hold fairly liberal views but are pushed into a position of fighting back because the totalitarian thought police won’t leave them alone.  SJW convergence is everywhere and needs to be fought everywhere.  You might think furries are degenerate and barking mad, but strange times call for strange allies.

White peeps just won’t stop being racist

Mommy blogger turned alt right poster girl: Mormon mom-of-six causes outrage by urging her thousands of followers to back her ‘white baby challenge’ and have children to stop ‘black ghetto culture’

Racist alt right blogger, who only goes by the name Ayla online, claims her Mormon religion is under attack by ‘black ghetto culture’

The mother-of-six issued a ‘white baby challenge’ to encourage white families to have as many as or more children as her

And that’s all you need to read of the article to see where it’s going.  The first word is “racist.”  This couldn’t possibly be a hit piece.  Wife with a Purpose says white people should have babies and Mormons shouldn’t be pushing multiculturalism.  Daily Mail says OMG Mormonism has racists!  Awful bad!  I say it’s nice to know that Mormons aren’t all cucked.

Racism nowadays really means nothing more than white people are evil.  People of every other color are told told that their existence makes them wonderful, their cultures should be spread and celebrated.  White people are all trash, their history is violence and oppression, and they ought to all die.  Of course the cute thing is, if any white person complains that this is what they’re being told, they’re immediately dogpiled by people saying “no one says that!”  Y’know like this:

As an African-American woman, it is getting old to keep hearing the psychotic rantings of some white people who have somehow gotten it un their minds that the white race is somehow under attack and that there is somr type of conspiracy among people of color to “outbreed” the white race. Well last time I checked the white race still owned and controlled most of the world’s wealth. So what is holding them back from making little white babies if they feel so threatened? I dont understand this way of thinking. As I sit here writing this post, white men are flying in from all over the planet to take advantage of California’s billion-dollar marijuana industry. I dont know of any black persons being “invited” to the party and none are making money in Silicon Valley, Tesla or Uber. The few who work there have to put up with a sh-tload of racism. And by the way “black ghetto culture” is a microcosm of white American culture which derives from the lowest classes of European culture.

>White people are psychotic for thinking they’re under attack
>White people are awful bad racists
>Attack
>Attack
>Attack

Black ghetto culture is…. white?!  Oh, man, if that’s not proof that white people are evil, I don’t know what is.
