Daily News Roundup

Patrick M. Garry contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: Today’s populism reflects more than just anger, which, granted, is not always a positive impulse. At the root of the contemporary populist impulse is a simple urge for freedom, independence, and opportunity. At the root of modern populism is a protest against an elite-driven legal and political system antagonistic to the interests of the common person. At no time in American history – not even during the Red Scare of the 1950s – has there existed such enforced conformity of thought within our educational and media systems. At no time in history has there been such a national political indifference to the plight of working families. Never in history has there been such a hostility to the religious and patriotic institutions that enliven and elevate the lives of average Americans. Never before has there been such a blatant hypocrisy toward the rule of law, toward the rules that average people must adhere to and those to which elite-favored groups must adhere. The majority of today’s populists do not want to overthrow anything; they simply want independence from the dictates and disdain of the national elites.

Kathleen Brush contributor to American Thinker: Listening carefully during the State of the Union, you could hear roaring laughter in Beijing when President Biden again said that J6 was the greatest threat to America since the Civil War. Biden is China’s perfect stooge. China has a long-term mission to retaliate against the West, with a bullseye on America, for a Century of Humiliation (1839-1949). To succeed, China must have political and racial unity and opportunities to strike, like an American president driving political, racial, and military disunity and invested in the mythical J6 monster.


Kurt Schlichter contributor to TownHall: The City of San Francisco, the bayside burg that gave us Nancy Pelosi and sidewalk toilets, is now proposing the ultimate in nonsense – a few million bucks of reparations for everyone whose grandparents came from the right continent at the right time. Actually, it’s more generous than that, because you may also be eligible if you were a victim of the Drug War – that is, if you were a scumbag drug dealer justly imprisoned for slinging poison before the narcotics were effectively legalized by the same leftists whose hometown proposes this giveaway. Well, if a bunch of people who were never slaves should get free money from people who never owned slaves, I propose that the people forking over the dollars be the liberal San Francisco Democrats who never owned slaves.

Jack Gleason contributor to Canada Free Presss: Heritage.org points to a National Assessment of Education Progress report… “Just 23 percent of American eighth-graders are proficient in civics… That figure falls to nine percent and 12 percent for African American and Hispanic students, respectively. Eighth graders fare even worse in U.S. history, with just 18 percent scoring proficient on the most recent administration of the test. “This civic illiteracy carries over into the adult years. The Annenberg Public Policy Center has found that just two in five Americans can name all three branches of government; one in five cannot name a single branch.”

Mitt Harris contributor to Canada Free Press: It seems that the new world order isn’t content anymore just to try and poison our minds, now they want to control them.


Rep. Nancy Mace (R-NY): “I, along with many Americans, have long-term effects from COVID. Not only was I a long hauler, but I have effects from the vaccine. It wasn’t the first shot, but it was the second shot that I now developed asthma that has never gone away since the second shot. I have tremors in my left hand and I have the occasional heart pain that no doctor can explain and I’ve had a battery of tests. I find it extremely alarming [that] Twitter’s unfettered censorship spread into medical fields and affected many Americans by suppressing expert opinions from doctors and censoring those who disagree with the CDC.”


Berenson: Dr. Anthony Fauci now admits the mRNA Covid vaccines hardly work and might not be approvable

In fact, a bombshell paper he co-authored last month suggests ALL vaccines for common respiratory viruses may face intractable hurdles. And that’s not even the worst news. I’m not exaggerating. Last month, three scientists pointed out flu shots barely work and couldn’t be approved based on the standards used for vaccines like measles: “After more than 60 years of experience with influenza vaccines, very little improvement in vaccine prevention of infection has been noted… our best approved influenza vaccines would be inadequate for licensure for most other vaccine-preventable diseases.” [emphasis added]


True. Several rigorous papers have proven that flu shots are placebos masquerading as public policy. But the same scientists then compared our beloved and groundbreaking Covid vaccines to those pointless flu jabs: As variant SARS-CoV-2 strains have emerged, deficiencies in these [Covid] vaccines reminiscent of influenza vaccines have become apparent. Just who are these vicious anti-vax rebels? Three researchers at the National Institutes for Health. Including one whose name may ring a bell: the now-retired Dr. Anthony S. Fauci. Yet the Covid/flu shot comparison is only one of the article’s bombshells.[…] Fauci just helped spearhead the effort to push a new type of vaccine on the world. After only a few months of testing, the United States and other countries injected their citizens with more than 3 billion doses of mRNA. Yet with these words, Fauci is admitting that effort has failed completely. He’s not excluding the mRNAs from “past unsuccessful attempts” that “have been a public health failure.” He’s not saying they can form the basis for “bold new paths.” He’s washing his hands of them – and whatever the long-term consequences of their failed effort to rewire the immune system may be. Tony Fauci is lucky. He’s 82.It’ll be up to the rest of us to deal with what he’s done.

Devine: The Democratic litany of Hunter Biden’s laptop lies

So many lies were told at the House Oversight’s first committee hearing Wednesday into the corruption scandal involving Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and the subsequent cover up by the FBI with social-media firms to rig the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden. Or, as Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to rebrand it: “Hunter Biden’s half-fake laptop.” It’s a sign of desperation that more than two years after The Post published the first bombshell story from the laptop, Dems can’t get their stories straight on what the laptop really is. […] The impressive blitzkrieg of lies mounted by Democrats Jamie Raskin, Daniel Goldman and AOC during Wednesday’s hearing shows just how high the stakes remain for the president as the Republican-controlled House begins to unravel the deceptions.

Cleveland: Twitter Execs Testify That Their Election-Meddling Decisions Were Even Flimsier Than Previously Claimed

The House Oversight Committee, now in the hands of Republicans, questioned four former Twitter executives on their decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story. Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., pushed Twitter’s former global head of trust and safety, Yoel Roth, to explain the timing of Twitter’s decision to censor the New York Post story.  Biggs noted that in an 8:51 a.m. email on Oct. 14, 2020, Roth had taken the position that the laptop “isn’t clearly violative of our Hacked Materials Policy.” But then, by 10:12, Roth emailed his colleagues with Twitter’s decision to censor the story, stating that “the key factor informing our approach is consensus from experts monitoring election security and disinformation that this looks a lot like a hack-and-leak operation.” What cybersecurity experts had Roth consulted between 9 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2020, the morning the Post story broke, Biggs asked the former Twitter executive.

Roth responded that the experts were ones the Twitter heads were following on the platform. “We were following discussions about this as they unfolded on Twitter,” Roth explained. “Cybersecurity experts were tweeting about this incident and sharing their perspectives, and that informed some of Twitter’s judgment here.”

Sundance: The Great Lou Dobbs Nails It

In this brief video segment {Direct Rumble Link}, Lou Dobbs cuts to the chase when analyzing the Republican party rebuttal to the Joe Biden state of the union speech.  Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee-Sanders delivered the remarks, they were poignant deliberate and accurate; however, they were also party managed, and party approved. Just as Lou Dobbs has accurately and presciently called the Wall Street play-by-play for decades, amid the multinational schemes of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce & Business Roundtable, Mr Dobbs accurately notes the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) as the originating approvers for the prepared rebuttal.

Griffin: Downed Chinese spy flight linked to global surveillance program

The program has been largely run out of China’s Hainan Island province off its southeast coastline in the South China Sea by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). It has been known to operate over regional neighbors like Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines and India, The Washington Post first reported.

But these surveillance balloons, used to collect military intelligence from nations that are of strategic interest to Beijing, have also emerged over the U.S. before.  Another Chinese spy balloon was discovered four months ago after it crashed into the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii, Fox News confirmed earlier this week. Another three Chinese surveillance balloons were found to have flown over Texas, Florida and Guam during the Trump administration. Department of Defense press secretary Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder told reporters Wednesday the U.S. had been tracking China’s surveillance practices before the latest balloon arrived stateside last week. “We are now learning more about the scale of this Chinese balloon surveillance program, which U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon have been observing for several years,” he said. “Our awareness and understanding of this capability has increased.”

Brush: America’s Disarray Is A Stark Contrast To China’s Unity

Listening carefully during the State of the Union, you could hear roaring laughter in Beijing when President Biden again said that J6 was the greatest threat to America since the Civil War. Biden is China’s perfect stooge. China has a long-term mission to retaliate against the West, with a bullseye on America, for a Century of Humiliation (1839-1949). To succeed, China must have political and racial unity and opportunities to strike, like an American president driving political, racial, and military disunity and invested in the mythical J6 monster. […]  Xi will continue to present himself humbly as he diligently keeps his nation racially/culturally, militarily, and politically united. He will also continue aligning the nations of “colored people” with Chinese CRT and the illusory truth of arrogant white oppressors while overseeing the Belt and Road initiative, where all roads lead to China. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration must remain silent on China’s secret weapon for achieving China’s mission: unifying children and the nation with the indoctrination that they are victims of white [American] oppression. This is so because Biden’s party is helping China by indoctrinating Americans in schools, universities, and at home with the same CCP propaganda.

There is so much irony in the President of the United States opening opportunities for the CCP to strike at America by disunifying the nation militarily, politically, and racially. Biden is leveraging the CRT offshoot of woke ideology, with both CRT and wokeness having roots in China’s racial and Marxist theories.

VDH: The Mess of an Address

Biden somehow demagogued the lethal violence of black police officers against a black victim in Memphis into evidence of America’s supposed racism. He smeared all law enforcement—even as inner-city violent and hate crimes soared as never before. He utterly lied about Republicans demanding a sunsetting of Social Security and Medicare. He beat the dead horse of January 6 (while insanely connecting it to the attack on Paul Pelosi!), despite the stacked congressional investigative committee and the suppression of critical video evidence and email communications involving security lapses. In sum,  it was the same old, same old dishonest Joe Biden: misinform, ignore, and attack—and then call for “unity” as the country collectively slides into ruin.

Coulter: State of the Union Highlights Reel

Despite MSNBC treating Biden’s State of the Union address like the royal wedding, you probably didn’t watch it. But it doesn’t matter because … I’ve got the highlights reel! FUNNIEST DEMOCRATIC BASE SUCK-UP: “I met a young woman named Saria, who is here tonight. For 30 years … she’d been a proud member of Ironworkers Local 44 …” Good for Saria, but 95% of ironworkers are men. Democrats, can’t you ever give it a rest? BIGGEST LIE: “[We are] the only nation in the world built on an idea.” First of all, this hoariest of all cliches, autoloaded into every Democrat’s teleprompter, is patently false. Tons of other countries are based on ideas! Ukraine: We will be a nation of corrupt grifters who suck dry the treasuries of other countries. Canada: Accomplish nothing, be incredibly boring, and have a nincompoop as prime minister. Nigeria: We will send you emails every 15 minutes saying you can share in a $30 million inheritance.

In fact, our country is not a mere “idea.” If it were, we could just give it to other countries. We’ve been trying to do that, often forcibly, by invading and nation-building, forever. It hasn’t worked. They all still want to move here. America is a nation of British Protestants, based on beautifully written governing documents, from John Winthrop’s 1630 sermons to the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Demographically, it remained about 80% to 90% white, 10% to 20% black and overwhelmingly Protestant for several centuries.[…] BEST HECKLE:

Oliveira: Biden is preparing to let HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of migrants cross the border into the US – under plan that would see mass deportations of non-Mexicans to Mexico

President Joe Biden is trying to close a deal with Mexico that would see hundreds of thousands of migrants enter the country legally, while deporting non-Mexican illegal migrants en masse across the southern border. The deal would be a breakthrough for the president, who is hoping to solve the ever-worsening border crisis ahead of the upcoming presidential election. Biden has previously said the nation’s inability deport migrants back to their home country was a leading factor in the record numbers of illegal crossings the US has seen in recent months. The new policy would see non-Mexican migrants who illegally cross into the US deported to Mexico. Sources said the deal has not been finalized, but that Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has been open to negotiations, according to the Washington Post. The deal is contingent upon . . .

Rigollizzo: Multiple Biden Admin Officials Held Their Positions In Violation Of Federal Law: Reports

The Government Accountability Office issued five separate reports indicating that the officials, who are working in “acting” roles while the Executive Branch positions are vacant, have occupied their offices for too long, in violation of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. The positions include a member of the Office of Management and Budget, the Assistant Secretary of ICE, and a top official in the Department of Justice. The Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 “establishes requirements for temporarily filling vacant positions in Executive Branch agencies that require presidential appointment and Senate confirmation,” the GAO reports on its website. “This act identifies who may temporarily serve, for how long, and what happens when no one is serving under the act and the position is vacant.” The GAO, an agency of the legislative branch, issues letters to the president and Congress to report violations of the law.

Halon: Lia Thomas exposed ‘male genitalia’ in women’s locker room after meet, Riley Gaines says: Dropped ‘his pants’

Women’s sports advocate Riley Gaines is calling on the NCCA to establish separate locker rooms for transgender athletes competing in female sports after she and her teammates were forced to undress in front of University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas after a meet last year. In an interview on “America Reports” Wednesday, the 12-time All-American and five-time SEC champion urged the National Collegiate Athletic Association to make separate locker rooms for transgender athletes, recounting her own discomfort when she was exposed to Thomas’ “male genitalia” in a women’s locker room after a meet.

“We were not forewarned beforehand that we would be sharing a locker room with Lia. We did not give our consent, they did not ask for our consent, but in that locker room we turned around and there’s a 6’4″ biological man dropping his pants and watching us undress, and we were exposed to male genitalia,” Gaines said.

(A great idea) Exclusive — Paul Fitzpatrick: 1792 Project Creates ‘Corporate Bias Ratings’ to Rate Companies’ Wokeness

1792 Exchange, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, publishes a “Spotlight Report” examining companies’ conduct across a range of criteria to grade them as “lower risk,” “medium risk,” or “higher risk” with respect to the likelihood of their imposition of “woke” abuses on clients. “1792 Exchange has assessed 1,000+ companies’ policies, practices, and other relevant criteria to determine the likelihood a company will cancel a contract or client, or boycott, divest, or deny services based on views or beliefs,” the organization states on its website. Fitzpatrick described his organization’s analyses as tools to help protect businesses, individuals, and organizations against “woke capitalism.” He explained, “The left has finally captured the last institution, corporate America. Whether you’re running a small business or a non-profit, you’re vulnerable, whether you’re supporting an agenda you don’t believe in, or you’re at risk of being canceled or denied service, and that’s really ultimately why 1792 Exchange was started.”

Kerr: Former Employees Slap The Left’s Favorite Dark Money Group With Racial Discrimination Lawsuits

Two former employees of a major liberal dark money group say they were subjected to racism and discrimination in the workplace, according to wrongful termination lawsuits obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Both suits allege that the New Venture Fund, a dominant player in Democratic politics that operates a network of liberal organizations,  paid black women less than white counterparts, and that black employees risked being fired for pushing back against discrimination. One employee, hired as a racial equity consultant, said she was “subjected to racial harassment” and frequently shouted down by white colleagues during discussions about race. The liberal dark money behemoth claims to “fearlessly” integrate the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its work. The allegations, from employees at separate New Venture Fund affiliates, implicate senior executives and suggest the group’s stated commitment to racial “equity” does not extend to its black employees.

Federer: “Freedom of Conscience”: Rhode Island founder Roger Williams & “Wall of Separation,” as understood by Jefferson

“5,000 years of recorded history have proven that mankind has always believed in God in spite of many abortive attempts to exile God,” stated Franklin Roosevelt, February 10, 1940. From the earliest records, governments have sought to force people to abandon their consciences and belief in God. Flavius Josephus wrote In the Antiquities of the Jews (c.93 AD): “Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God … He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it was through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage, which procured that happiness.

… He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power.” The Book of Daniel describes Nebuchadnezzar demanding Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego abandon their faith in God and bow to his statue, or he would throw them into the fiery furnace. Centuries of history repeat this tragedy ;. . . […]  Pro-abortion Presidential candidate declared in 2016: “… deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal responded: “That’s crazy talk … Our religious beliefs are between us and God, not us and Hillary Clinton.” […]  A short theological explanation of “freedom of conscience” is helpful to fully understand the mindset of colonial New England founders. Namely, when a government protects “freedom of conscience,” it facilitates the exercise of “free will,” which is the essence of choosing to “love” God.

Chalberg: Grover Cleveland: A Man of Iron

The most curiously compelling thing about this quite compelling biography of our twenty-second and twenty-fourth president is the opening line of most every chapter. So let’s begin with the very first line of the very first chapter: “H. L. Mencken could be a real pain in the a–.” […]  And on and on it went for all of our greater and lesser presidents—save for Cleveland, which brings us back to the other thing that Mr. Senik was up to with his opening line: When it comes to the Mencken treatment meted out to our various presidents, his assessment of Cleveland is the exception that proves the rule. Almost immediately Mr. Senik proceeds to borrow from Mencken’s wonderfully titled essay on Cleveland, “A Good Man in a Bad Trade.” In fact, the title of the book is also borrowed from that essay. In it, Mencken conceded that the country has had “more brilliant” presidents than Cleveland, as well as “one or two who were genuinely profound.” But in his estimation there had been no president since Washington whose “fundamental character was… more admirable.” Far from finished, Mencken thought that the fundamentals of the Cleveland character were best displayed in his dealings with his fellow politicians. He climbed the political ladder “not by knuckling under” to others in the trade, but by “scorning them and even defying them.” […]  To be sure, Cleveland’s understanding of the presidency did not prevent him from wielding the power of the veto pen. The same thing might be said of his political hero, Andrew Jackson. But Cleveland did Jackson a few better. In fact, he issued more vetoes in his first term than all of his twenty-one predecessors combined. Many of his vetoes were of Civil War pension bills. But the larger point stands: President Cleveland viewed himself as a steward of the people’s money.

Chaitin: House Votes To Kill Travel Vax Mandate For Foreign Travelers

The Republican-led House voted Wednesday to block the requirement that foreign travelers have proof of COVID vaccination to fly into the United States. Seven Democrats joined with the GOP majority to pass the legislation 227-201, sending the bill to the Democrat-led Senate where it faces long odds.

Still, the vote represents a triumph for Republicans who oppose the rules from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which stipulate adult visitors who seek to enter the United States by air need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before boarding a flight to enter the country. […]  Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) said Republicans are prioritizing “politics over science” and warned unvaccinated individuals could bring new, dangerous variants into the country. [Note: Adults traveling by air to enter the U.S. need to show proof of Covid vaccination but not the millions of adults illegally crossing into the U.S. at our southern border?)

Winters: EXC: Pfizer’s Chief Vaccine Officer Advised US Government On Redrafting Gain Of Function Research Policy.

Pfizer’s Chief Scientific Officer for Vaccine Research and Development advised the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity during the group’s deliberation over redrafting government policies concerning gain of function research. The unearthed influence of a leading Pfizer employee over the federal government’s approach to regulating gain of function research, which refers to the manipulation of pathogens to become more lethal, virulent, or transmissible to humans, follows a shocking undercover investigation from Project Veritas into the company. The group caught an employee of the pharmaceutical giant and COVID-19 vaccine maker admitting to engaging in the risky form of research to better profit off vaccines. In light of these claims, the proximity of Pfizer’s Philip Dormitzer to the U.S. government’s effort to redraft its policies surrounding gain of function research in 2016 is curious, as he was working as the Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer for RNA and Viral Vaccines at Pfizer at the time. He held this position from September 2015 to December 2021.

Women wearing thongs in broad daylight on street corners, pimps following mothers taking their kids to school, and prostitutes twerking at traffic have become common scenes in California. Local leaders claim human trafficking and prostitution are rampant in the Golden State after a new criminal justice reform that its author said aims to protect transgender women from being unfairly targeted by law enforcement. “It’s absolutely out of control and dangerous — not just for the sex workers but for the community,” San Francisco Supervisor Hillary Ronen told the San Francisco Chronicle this week. A road in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District has become lined with prostitutes and pimps, prompting city officials to install barricades as residents sound off that not only do they feel less safe – especially at night – but that they are worried about the women working the streets.

Vernadkis: Would YOUR neighborhood be targeted in a nuclear conflict? Official map shows the 2,000 locations across the US most at risk

These are the nuclear ‘hotspots’ across America that could be targeted in the event of a thermonuclear war, according to the government. While heavily populated cities like New York and Los Angeles may seem like the most likely US targets, there are other, more strategic targets in states such as Montana or North Dakota to wipe out the US’s retaliatory forces. The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) originally released the map of the areas most likely to be targeted in 2015 – but it has resurfaced on social media again as the West teeters on the brink of conflict with Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.

Kaufman: Broward County Grand Mosque, Minarets, Terror and Potential Bribes

It has been a wild couple of commission meetings, at the Cooper City Commission. Nur-ul-Islam (NUI), a radical South Florida Islamic center, gave in their application for a new mosque/school expansion, which included three minarets, one of which was to be 100 feet in height. This did not sit well with the city’s residents, especially those living in the vicinity of the mosque. Dozens spoke out at the meetings, protesting the center’s potential effect on traffic, aesthetics, noise and taxes. Yet, nothing was mentioned about the subject of terror, something that the center has several links to. And when the mayor said he received money from NUI, no one cried foul.

Sundance: Head’s Up – Apparently, There’s a Limit on Tweets Now?

Just an fyi, I encountered this issue with Twitter and cannot even express the problem on The Twitter due to the restriction. […]  Like I said I cannot tweet or reply to tweets. So I have no way to notify followers or those who use Twitter to get feeds from CTH.

@muse Threadreader: 1/PROJECT VERITAS MUTINY

Four months ago Project Veritas hired 56-year-old Barry Hinckley to serve as Chief Strategy Officer. Hinckley wrote an email to PV staff claiming he had “stood up to a bully” and had lost his job as a result. 2/ Barry Hinckley is the heir to the Hinckley Yachts family, a failed Senate candidate from Rhode Island, and CEO of a failed company that called itself the Airbnb of private house parties. Why did he attack @JamesOKeefeIII in just four months? 4/  Barry Hinckley recruited 11 other @Project_Veritas employees to sign a letter declaring @JamesOKeefeIII a “power-drunk tyrant” which he presumably sent to PV’s board of directors in an effort to oust him from the company. 5/ Reportedly, @JamesOKeefeIII fired Barry Hinckley and Tom O’Hara (CFO) as a result of their insubordination. 6/  . . .

Bawer: Sliding Toward the Abyss in Scandinavia

Islamization is a gradual process, but not so gradual that you can’t see it happening.  […] As Islam continues to gain numbers and power in Western Europe, certain questions take on greater importance. If you’re female or Jewish or gay, for example, and the only local doctor without a full patient list is a Muslim (and given how some nationalized medical systems work, this kind of situation arises not infrequently), do you choose to assume that he doesn’t take his religion’s teachings seriously, or do you move? A rise in Muslim numbers means a rise in Muslim influence on many fronts. In Norway, there are about 1500 Jews and about 175,000 Muslims. When Jewish parents complain about their kids being beaten by their Muslim classmates – a charge that, if acted upon, can lead to major unrest – how do you expect teachers, principals, cops, and politicians to respond?

Ibrahim: Islamic Justice Prevails: Stripped Naked and Paraded in Egypt, Christian Grandmother Is Now the Guilty One

Her “crime” was that her son was accused of being romantically involved with a Muslim woman. Islam assumes the man is superior, and that non-Muslims must never have authority over Muslims. Non-Muslim men may therefore never court or marry Muslim women, although Muslim men may court and marry non-Muslim women. Why do so many Western women support this unabashed discrimination?

Mullarkey: Even White Paint Is Racist Now

The identity politics industry is on the qui vive to discover symptoms of racism unrecognized until now. Whiteness, a barrier to racial justice, is a malign condition to which “white” people are peculiarly susceptible. Hidden clues are everywhere. None are too absurd to go unexamined by race-stalkers in academia. Even white paint is suspect. Are there racist implications to the many global uses of the chemical compound titanium dioxide (TiO2)? Has the pigment derived from it — titanium white — contributed to white supremacy? Is the universal prevalence of titanium white a signifier of oppressive Western ideology?

Whiteness studies are a gravy train for grant-seeking academics throughout a declining West. Since TiO2 and titanium white were developed by two Norwegian chemists in the 1910s, Norway is funding an audit of its own role in the spread of white privilege. The Research Council of Norway has granted 12 million Norwegian Krone (about $1.2 million) to the University of Bergen to “investigate” the baneful “planetary consequences” of white paint. Entitled “How Norway Made the World Whiter (NorWhite),” the project states its claim on public funding: “Whiteness is one of today’s key societal and political concerns.”
