Is the tolerance and diversity crowd really as tolerant and diverse as they claim?

Consider this story from the Washington Free Beacon about the Free Speech bus created by the National Organization for Marriage.

Excerpt:

A bus with social conservative slogans denouncing transgenderism was vandalized Thursday in New York City by trans activists.

[…][T]he bus never left New York. The National Organization for Marriage announced Thursday that the bus had been defaced by angry activists wielding hammers.

Oh, such hate speech! Much offended. Only hammers could fix this problem of other people having different opinions than the secular left extremists.

They even attacked the driver:

National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown told USA Today that the driver of the bus tried to stop the vandals, but was tackled by one of the activists.

Newsbusters also reported on the mainstream media’s coverage of the attack:

Nation’s Liberals Announce ‘Day Without A Protest’ Protest

Gotta love the Babylon Bee… 🙂

*Update: I always loved this scene in PCU:

Will S.' Sunny Side Blog

U.S.—America’s progressives have arranged yet another nationwide demonstration dubbed the “Day Without A Protest” demonstration, in which participants will stay home and not angrily protest anything and everything that provokes their ire, a liberal spokesperson announced Wednesday.

“The country will be forced to see exactly what it looks like to enjoy a whole day without people protesting in their towns and cities,” the representative for the protest told reporters.

“Soon, the nation will realize just how terrible it is to suffer through 24 hours of peace and civility in our cities’ streets.”

At publishing time, the “Day Without A Protest” announcement had turned violent, igniting riots and lootings throughout the nation.

Fake drugs, fake news

It’s been all over the news, up here; various Canadian mayors (Toronto, Ottawa, and other important Canadian cities) are talking about an ‘opioid epidemic’ in their cities; and I saw that recently, Stateside, Chelsea Clinton gave a speech on the subject (preparing for a future role in politics, perhaps?).

The big concern is ostensibly about ‘fake’ versions of fentanyl on the streets; some accounts say that carfentanil, a drug used to sedate elephants, is being passed off as fentanyl, but it’s 10000 times as strong, or something such. Other reports mention other things passed off as fentanyl.

I have to ask, why now?

I mean, OxyContin abuse has been a big enough social problem in many places for well over a decade, but all of a sudden The Powers That Be are now concerned about opiate abuse?

What, because a few idiot teenagers win some Darwin Awards, offing themselves by their stupidity?

Why the hell should we care?

Oh, I know: money: I heard that one Canadian city plans to spend some $2.5M fighting the scourge; more education programs, Naloxone kits for cops and firefighters to have on hand, etc.

So that’s all it is, isn’t it?

Big Government, wanting more tax dollars to spend on bigger government, education, law enforcement, etc.

In cahoots with Big Pharma, producing and selling a drug to counter other drugs that they also sell. Convenient!

As well as a big new social crusade to fire up progs, motivate them again to dream big government dreams.

Funny how The Hive always moves together at the same time, after years of inaction…

*Update: Amicus reminds me, in his comment, about the other ostensible issue, fentanyl being passed off as other drugs. My main point still stands; if you’re stupid enough to abuse opiates / opioids / whatever they’re calling them now, and you die, your own damn fault, and it’s only a handful of people offing themselves in this manner, it’s hardly an epidemic. Typical politician / media overreacting, pushing some agenda…

 

U.S. Army puts Muslim Chaplain in Charge of the Spiritual Needs of 14,000 Mostly Christian Soldiers

Wow.

In one of the most head-scratching turn of events in recent military history, the Army has decided that the man most capable of handling the spiritual needs of 14,000 mostly Christian soldiers is Muslim chaplain Lt. Col. Khallid Shabazz.

Sure, there are about 1,400 other chaplains (only 10 of whom are Muslim), but Shabazz has apparently done something that gives his Army superiors confidence that he’s the best man for the job.

Done something or is something? He’s a black convert to Islam, and an advocate of leftist identity politics:

Shabazz, formerly known as Michael Barnes, was born Lutheran in Louisiana. He later joined the Army at 23 and was stationed in Germany, where he worked with a Muslim soldier. He says he quickly grew tired of the Muslim soldier bragging about Islam, so he challenged him to a public debate.

The ensuing debate while on base caused Shabazz to reevaluate his religion. He subsequently converted and changed his name, before encountering struggle after struggle in the Army and later joining on with the Chaplain Corps.

He’s now served as a chaplain for 18 years and has deployed to Iraq, Kosovo and Guantanamo Bay.

Shabazz said he is not interested in converting anyone to Islam, but some soldiers do end up converting.

“My job is not to convert anybody to Islam,” Shabazz said. “God guides people. My only goal is to have people leave my office stronger than when they came in.”

Most of the time, Shabazz spends his hours advocating for Islam, so as to prevent “anti-Muslim” incidents at bases.

Shabazz, himself black, has also advocated on behalf of the black community and for Black History Month. At Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Shabbaz discussed how important it is to boldly represent what you believe in, despite possible backlash.

Figures.

For me, a regular old guy from Louisiana

Oh yeah. Just a regular joe.

Univision’s Jorge Ramos:

Our country, not theirs. It is our country. And we are not going to leave. […] We are not going to sit down. We will not shut up. And we will not leave.

Vox Day observes:

It doesn’t matter whether you are a libertarian, a conservative, a liberal, a progressive, or a constitutionalist. Your ideology is outdated and irrelevant. It’s all identity politics now, and politics is a subset of war. If the matter cannot be resolved politically – and the fact that this is the largest invasion in human history strongly suggests it cannot be – it will be resolved with violence.

‘Tis the way of things…

Alabama Committee Passes Bill to Eliminate Marriage Licenses, Nullify Federal Control in Practice

Vox Day reports and comments:

Alabama takes the lead:

An Alabama bill that would abolish marriage licenses in the state, and effectively nullify in practice both major sides of the contentious national debate over government-sanctioned marriage, unanimously passed an important Senate committee last week.

Sen. Greg Albritton (R-Bay Minette) filed Senate Bill 20 (SB20) earlier this month. The legislation would abolish all requirements to obtain a marriage license in Alabama. Instead, probate judges would simply record civil contracts of marriage between two individuals based on signed affidavits.

“All requirements to obtain a marriage license by the State of Alabama are hereby abolished and repealed. The requirement of a ceremony of marriage to solemnized the marriage is abolished.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed SB20 9-0 on Feb. 23.

The proposed law would maintain a few state requirements governing marriage. Minors between the ages of 16 and 18 would have to obtain parental permission before marrying, the state would not record a marriage if either party was already married, and the parties could not be related by blood or adoption as already stipulated in state law.

Civil or religious ceremonies would have no legal effect upon the validity of the marriage. The state would only recognize the legal contract signed by the two parties entering into the marriage.

This is an excellent policy, and one which I have advocated since my WND days. The state does not define marriage. The state cannot define marriage. The state has never defined marriage; it is an institution that long precedes the state.

The state has the right to create whatever legal contractual relationships between whatever parties it likes, but those relationships are not marriage. The Alabama bill would clarify that, and would have the benefit of removing those whose marriages are religious in nature from the predations of the state’s divorce courts.

If conservatives want to save marriage, then this is a policy they should take to the national level.

I see the appeal of such a solution; it’s a way around giving in to the progs. Also, it would eliminate the system we have here in Canada where two people of the opposite sex who move in together are declared married according to ‘common law’ after six months or so of cohabiting, which I’ve never liked; why should two individuals who don’t want to get married either reap the benefits / suffer the negatives of legally being united.

Now, I don’t know what effect, in practice, such would have on how the courts would treat divorce, in terms of enforcing shared custody, alimony, division of assets, etc. I can imagine the possibility of legal chaos, flowing from such a change in legislation as this. Not sure, though.

For Alabamans’ (Alabamanians?) sake, if it passes, I hope the experiment goes well for them. Either way, hopefully it will be a decent test case.
