Headlines here and there

Two homosexual men share how God reached out to them and made them leave the emptiness of same sex relationships behind.

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/268238/mathematics-%E2%80%A6whiteness-jack-kerwick There was a time when I would carefully try to sift through articles like this and acknowledge any valid point that might be hidden amongst the pile of dog doo. That time is over. This is harmful stuff.
“Gutierrez laments that we regard mathematics “as if it is a natural reflection of the universe,” occurring “outside of human influence,” “encoding the universe with eternal truths, a natural order of things that should not be questioned.” Thus, “mathematics is viewed as a version of the world that is proper, separate from humans, where no emotions or agendas take place.”

Mathematics becomes normative, the benchmark of clear thinking, due to “its perceived purity [.]”

Gutierrez maintains that this value-neutral, normative conception of mathematics has had “lasting” and negative “effects” on legions of people who are “not viewed as mathematical”—which is another way of saying that they are not viewed as intelligent. “So many people,” Gutierrez continues, “have experienced trauma, microaggressions from participating in math classrooms where the idea of being a successful person, being an intelligent person, is removing oneself from the context, not involving emotions, not involving the body, and being judged by whether one can reason abstractly.” But read it all. It’s time to stop ceding ground to people who have so little respect for the minds of students and others.

NPR editor on leave after accusations of sexual harassment. Was this one another ‘open secret?’

Democrat group runs a nasty ad depicting conservatives trying to mow down children in a truck. They pulled it the day after an actual immigrant did mow down and murder several people with a vehicle, while yelling Allahu Ackbar. More here.
The killer is a Muslim immigrant from Uzbeki who came here in 2010 because he won a green card in the diversity lottery which is a think which should have stopped being a thing some years ago. 8 people are dead, nearly all of them also foreign born (several were tourists). I’m sure their survivors are proud of our diversity program.

Incidentally, identity theft is a huge part of illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is not a victim free crime.

” Virginia’s gubernatorial election stands as a test for the anti-Donald Trump resistance, and whether it can energize voters and donors for the less glamorous races featuring traditional Democratic politicians.”
“Northam bested former Rep. Tom Perriello, a populist favorite of the resistance who was backed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, in the Democratic primary. Sanders’ political operation, Our Revolution, recently endorsed six Democrats running for the state House of Delegates, but did not endorse Northam. Diane May, a spokeswoman for the group, said it can only endorse candidates recommended by local members and none in Virginia recommended Northam.

Some activists say it’s obvious that the liberal wing of the party isn’t as engaged in the governor’s race.”

“Michael Casentini, 41, a small business owner in Los Angeles, was devastated by Trump’s election and desperate for ways to fight back. In May, he wrote a $215 check to Ossoff as that race became a rallying cry for the anti-Trump resistance.

Casentini obsessively follows the news, so he knows there’s a tight race for Virginia governor next month. But he didn’t know the name of the Democratic candidate.

“People are tired, people are exhausted,” Casentini said in an interview.

But after talking about the Virginia race with a reporter, he said he realized he should make a donation to Northam. “That’s another one we liberals need to jump on,” Casentini said.”

Wait. What? After talking with a reporter he realized he needed to make a donation to Northam? That smells fishy to me. Who put this reporter in touch with Casentini? What was it the reporter said that made him realize he needed to donate to Northam? Why and how?

“A TUNNEL at an underground North Korea nuclear site has reportedly collapsed killing up to 200 people.
The disaster happened at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the north-east of the country on October 10, according to Japan’s TV Asahi.”
Experts are worried about radioactive spills, a disaster like Chernobyl. I am not remotely an expert but I do wonder if it was really an accident or was it sabotage or some sort of attack to hinder the insane leader of North Korea nuclear program. There might be another reason besides mere diplomacy that China and South Korea have agreed to work together on denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

The Population Bomb- it was a dud. We were lied to. Nobody is going to be called to account for those lies. Meanwhile, we have a birth dearth, an aging population that didn’t bother to replace themselves and now want to impose a great deal of debt on other people’s children for their care.

I do not trust the internet of things.
