Item Students Demand Professor Be Fired After He Champions Due Process, Says ‘Accusers Sometimes Lie’

Nearly 100 students at the University of Southern California attended a rally at noon on Monday demanding a tenured professor be fired after he sent a reply-all email last Thursday to the student body noting that “accusers sometimes lie.”

“If the day comes you are accused of some crime or tort of which you are not guilty, and you find your peers automatically believing your accuser, I expect you find yourself a stronger proponent of due process than you are now,” emailed Professor James Moore.

The email — in response to a reply-all email that urged students to “Believe Survivors” on the day of Christine Ford’s testimony — triggered what one school admin said was “hundreds” of emails from concerned students and alumni since Thursday…

Roughly 7 students also spoke at a makeshift podium, sharing sharing stories of sexual abuse. The crowd then marched over to the office of Dean Jack Knott, according to multiple live-streams of the protest.

Met by security guards, the protesters demanded to see Dean Knott. It is unclear if they intended to occupy the building. After a roughly five-minute standoff, security guards allowed Dean Knott greet the protesters, but did not allow students in the building.

“What [Professor Moore] sent was extremely inappropriate, hurtful, insensitive. We are going to try to do everything we can to try to create a better school, to educate the faculty,” said Dean Knott to the crowd.

He then announced that USC would take action.

“This is going to be a multi-pronged effort. We are going to have a faculty meeting later this week around implicit bias, sensitivity towards [sexual assault]….” he said

Saying “accusers sometimes lie” is like saying “Saturday follows Friday”. Yet the Dean at Moore’s school was able to cry “Cuckadoodle doo!” to his students as he promised swift punishment because the poor, poor students had to hear Truth.

Moore is a man, and did a manly thing. Knott, in the face of seven—count ’em!—seven full brats cucked. All it took was seven measly snot-filled diaper walking temper tantrums for him to snivel and surrender. Good grief, what a culture.

Item BBC will have more gay characters in its shows to combat ‘heteronormative culture’

The BBC is going to increase the number of LGBT people appearing in its programmes and news output as part of new diversity reforms.

They will be “incidental” portrayals, meaning that their sexuality is not part of a storyline or directly relevant to a news item.

Off-screen and off-air, LGBT staff will be encouraged to “bring their whole self to work” and be open about their sexuality.

Other recommendations include the use of non-binary pronouns used by staff where appropriate, and a network of “straight allies” who will announce their status with pin badges or special email signatures.

They are included in a new report based on a survey of LGBT staff attitudes, which found that many perceived the corporation to have a “heteronormative culture”.

It has been pointed out that Nature is “heteronormative”. Heteronormativity is, after all, another name for Reality.

But here we have the BBC, funded by a mandatory TV tax, promising to push perversity propaganda to combat Nature and Reality. It is, as was pointed out in our midweek special Doom edition, only a short step before mandatory quotas of each favored perversity are required not only on TV, but in textbooks, classrooms, and so on.

The good news, for us curmudgeons, is that propaganda works. Welcoming attitudes to perversity will increase. As will the acts themselves.

Of course, all you have to do in this case is turn off the source. One small click for man, one giant service to mankind. Won’t happen.

Item Huge reduction in meat-eating ‘essential’ to avoid climate breakdown

Huge reductions in meat-eating are essential to avoid dangerous climate change, according to the most comprehensive analysis yet of the food system’s impact on the environment. In western countries, beef consumption needs to fall by 90% and be replaced by five times more beans and pulses.

This item is only interesting for the latest hobgoblin phrase “climate breakdown” to describe global cooling. No, wait. Global warming.

So. If the climate “breaks down”, what would be left? A non-climate? I despair.

    The last item means NO MORE pet cats and dogs, or you have to feed them the dread corn meal cheap food that they sell at discount stores. All premium brands that contain meat must go. That includes most canned dog and cat food, especially premium cat food. The pets are already getting meat, not meat byproducts (so Grandma eating cat food is probably more healthy than people food). Good luck with that one. People will sell their kids out to the liberal propaganda camps (aka schools) but Fido and Fluffy eating corn? Never happen. Pets are people’s lives and they will fight for the dog or cat.

    Perhaps if he presented the unsubstantiated accusations of “inappropriate” behavior once leveled at old women in Salem or at black men in many places they would understand the value of due process a bit more. If not, a sentence to watch repeated showings of Rashomon, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Crucible would not be amiss.

  3. “The BBC is going to increase the number of LGBT people appearing in its programmes and news output as part of new diversity reforms.”

    Glad to read that. The Liberty, Guns, Beer, and Trump group needs to be heard more often.

    More insanity and doom:

    The British justice system put a paedophile and rapist in a women’s prison because he claimed to be female though he is an unaltered male. There he sexually assaulted four women prisoners.

    In its reporting of this case the Guardian uses “she” and “her” throughout to refer to him.

    Then the government refused to talk about it:

    Doom indeed.

    When the cock crowed three times, it was fulfilled.

    Complete abandonment of Truth, if only to save their own skin, temporarily.

    The BBC should be disbanded but people are not watching in huge numbers any more. They are well blended with the news media and even, it seems, the three other terrestrial channels are not so independent from one another. There is more politics on TV than there ever was and it makes its way into every form and type of entertainment.

    Like the left wing media’s opposite numbers, who also don’t care much for truth and have joined in with F for Fake, news.

    Like John B said, I agreed with him, wholeheartedly, don’t make it easy for THEM.

    Good luck, everybody!

    My boss and I don’t have a good relationship. I long attributed it to my personality, which I admit is a bit quirky. I was surprised, then, upon hearing similar complaints from my coworkers. What was interesting is that each coworker had a different diagnosis – micro-manager, aloof and clueless, back-stabbing ladder-climber, etc. The only common theme I could see among us was confusion.

    Being an engineer, I looked at it as a problem in need of a solution. Internet searches led me to psychopathy, which led me to Robert Hare’s books, and then to other books. While I still don’t know if my boss is a psychopath, I got a lot of clarity into people in my past that left me dazed and confused. In hindsight, I was lucky: “Psychopaths have none of the hallmarks of mental illness. They act normal but they’re not. They are manipulative, dangerous individuals who live and work in our communities, often leaving behind a wake of broken hearts, empty wallets, and ruined lives. Sooner or later, says Robert Hare, everyone will encounter a psychopath.”

    While a significant portion of the prison population are psychopaths, only a small percentage of psychopaths are in prison. The estimates I’ve seen for the prevalence of psychopaths in the general non-prison population are around 1%, with 85-90% of those being male. There are theories that the percentage is much higher in certain occupations (corporate CEO, lawyer, any job where a fully functional conscience can be a distinct disadvantage).

    As the nature of Christine Ballsey-Ford’s accusations and supporting evidence became clear, I immediately wondered “psychopath?”. The odds seemed against it. On the other hand, she ‘self-selected’, which throws the averages out the window. After hearing snippets of her testimony, though, it seems likelier – she came across as deceptive, her testimony practiced and contrived and, well, lacking in conscience.

    If, for a certain crime or misbehavior, the standard becomes “always believe the accuser”, one can expect the psychopaths to come out of the woodwork, at least when fame/fortune is to be had.

    Psychopaths have none of the hallmarks of mental illness. They act normal but they’re not.

    Think about that. There are no distinguishing characteristics of a psychopath. Since they act normal then being manipulative and often leaving behind a wake of broken hearts, empty wallets, and ruined lives must be normal. So what then is a “psychopath” and how would you know it if you saw one?
