Roundup Time: Dolezal 2.0, Maolings on Campus, Etc.
As we are now within 60 days of election, it looks like the last 3.5 years of coup attempts against President Trump are starting to look like powderpuff football. The histrionic Left isn’t just aiming to take power, but aiming to take you out.
You remember Rachel Dolezal, right? The female of pallor who dined for years as an honored academic and minority leader due to self-tanning lotion and frequent perms? Another trans-racial member of Anger studies academia has, upon discovery, tossed herself on a pyre of faux self-recrimination.
The white George Washington University associate professor who has admitted to pretending to be black her entire career allegedly only outed herself after other scholars started questioning her background last week.
Despite assuming various black identities over the years, Jessica Krug revealed in a Medium blog post on Thursday she is actually white and that she has been deceiving her friends and colleagues.
Of course, as black Jessica she not only received special attention and accolades but got the melanin-privilege card to be racist
Her current neighbor, Anna Anderson, told the DailyMail.com that Krug would call her ‘white trash’ and tell Anderson she was ‘gentrifying’ the neighborhood by going running.
Following a dispute over their bikes Anderson said Krug asked her: ‘Do you know what the police do to black people like me?’
Here’s a thought. Maybe if we rejected this obsession with melanin and using it as a substitute for personal responsibility and a cheat for fame, people like Krug, Dolezal, et al, would just be pathetic curiosities.
Cultural Revolution struggle sessions are getting creepier by the day. How confident will you be of any lawyer you hire if you see a diploma from Northwestern U hanging on the wall?
At an online town hall meeting at Northwestern University held recently, attendees began by denouncing themselves as racist.
“I’m Jim Speta. And I am a racist,” Speta, the interim dean of Northwestern University Law School, said in the meeting chat thread.
“My name is Emily Mullin. I am a racist and a gatekeeper of white supremacy. I will work to be better,” another attendee wrote.
Northwestern U. law school had a town hall meeting online recently. Everybody began w/ a ritual denunciation of themselves as racist. Reader: "Prof. Speta is not a racist. He is a wonderful man universally loved by students. It makes me sad that he is forced to say otherwise." pic.twitter.com/O45UX8ver2

Another entry into the “Tell me again why I would send my child to college?” sweepstakes.
During a recent online class, Greg Patton, who is an “expert in communication, interpersonal and leadership effectiveness,” according to his faculty bio, explained the usage of a Chinese filler word for “that,” comparing it to the usage of “like,” “um,” and other American filler words.
The Chinese filler word is “nega”. So you know what happened next, right?
I cannot believe this is real, but it is.
This USC Professor is on leave after students were offended that a Chinese word he used during a lecture on foreign languages sounded like an english racial slur.

I don’t know what’s more pathetic — the emotionally-crippled students freaked out by a foreign language homonym or the invertebrate masochists running USC who couldn’t wait to strip down and hand the students the cat-o-nine-tails.
Yes, I know this is Mad King Newsom’s California, but even this is beyond the pale.
Last week, the Republican Caucus, but one, was told to self-quarantine, without a formal investigation, when a member of our caucus tested positive for the coronavirus after a regular weekly lunch meeting, where all but one of us was present, even though I was cautious about social distancing.
On Monday, I received a letter telling me the quarantine would conclude on September 8th and I could return to work on the 9th. It gave no explanation as to how this was determined. That I tested negative was inconsequential.
On a very creepy note, Sen. John Moorlach voluntarily tested for Wuhan Bat Lab Virus on 8/27. The testing facility didn’t get back to him, mind you. He heard his results from the CA Senate nurse.
And while Moorlach does not now meet any quarantine requirement per CDC rules, CA Democrats make their own up as they go …
Late last night, after I had gone to bed, I received an email from Dr. Erica Pan, the Acting Public Health Officer for the California Department of Public Health, informing me that I was to continue staying in my Sacramento residence through September 8th.
“Violation of or failure to comply with this order may constitute a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment, fine, or both.”
Yesterday, Friday Sept 4, was the last day of the 2020 legislative system and Moorlach is forbidden to go home for another week.
This is what the Left does with power – they can claim racism or climate change or covid. Stalinistas, Maolings, Fidel-fellators. Excuses or labels don’t matter. The naked exercise of power. That’s all that matters for them.
More or less of this will hinge on Nov 3rd. I guarantee that.
