May 2019 thread bump.

5 California public school educators placed on leave because 4 were smiling in a picture with a noose and the 5th took the picture. There was no caption to the picture, and it's possible that they were joking about themselves (e.g. 'this is our future if we don't raise standardized test scores'). Despite there being no context, some district parents were outraged by the picture and the local school superintendent agrees ...

Quote:
Palmdale schools superintendent Raul Maldonado said all five educators have been put on administrative leave, pending an investigation by the district.

"The Palmdale School District holds all employees to the highest standards and expectations," Maldonado said in a statement to NBC News on Friday. "We will not stop until we find out exactly what did occur. We will not tolerate this type of behavior in our schools."
Tolerate what behavior? Smiling in a picture with a noose could simply be gallows humor vs teachers making a reference to lynchings in the US. Even if they were making a joke that this is what the worst of the students have in store for them if they don't shape up in detention, it's a mostly Latino district and the reference is likely to all bad students.

"We will not stop until we find out exactly what did occur."

"In the mean time, punishment shall be distributed as deemed appropriate by Palmdale School District Cardinals Ximénez, Biggles, and Fang."

Saw that. I think it was mentioned that TWO parents took their kids out. One stated “my meliah ain’t gonna go back to that plantation”. Really? If all it took was a picture of a bunch of white women holding what may be a noose to set you off you were ready to blow way before that.

All because parents failed to use actual parenting methods, inclusing appropriate discipline. Additionally, the increased number of kids without an actual mother/father doesn't help. And lastly, no one with a true moral compass is going to do anything but what's good for those they love. There's always bad eggs, but if this is made standard, then the frequency of 'snowstorms' will go way down. I say keep triggering them... Not only does it prove how ridiculous they are, it's so much fun to watch...

I think this "snowflaky" business has largely been enabled by the educational system. If that's accurate then the Left is eating their own. It should be encouraged.

Snowflakedom and political correctness zealotry often overlap. Here's an example in Harvard with liberals eating their own. A respected undergraduate Dean that is Harvard law professor (and happens to be black) who has fought for liberal causes (including some that would upset people here) has been under attack by a group of Harvard students (led by a Brit of Sri Lankan parentage) for aiding in the defense of Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein is no saint and the law school professor doesn't have to participate on his defense team (this most likely isn't pro bono work and he's getting paid - so he can do pro bono work for other liberal causes). If the law school professor was getting paid to defend an accused serial killer that was not white, I wonder if these students would get upset.

As a result of the student complaints, Harvard has said they won't reinstate the Dean this year when his current term runs out. He'll keep his law school professorship, but the message has been sent. Harvard students also protested and blocked a 3 week lecture course by Justice Kavanaugh last year based on the uncorroborated accusations of Prof. Blasey Ford.

Winthrop House? Eliot House? I can't wait for John Blutarsky of DTX-House to chime it.

They are already doing so. With disastrous results.

Watch an episode or two of Nanny 911.

AMAZING.

Still a great place to travel. But I would not want to live there.

I think this is what the dumber snowflakes eventually graduate to ...

Code Pink used the Venezuelan Embassy as an anti-Trump prop. Now the show is over.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...127_story.html

Quote:
Code Pink activists are all about the visuals — those pink pussy hats, the huge, dancing vaginas outside the White House, the hands smeared with fake blood at Senate hearings.

Provocative, all of it.

But this one? Seriously? The optics of a handful of white people, from professional activists to a barista, occupying a foreign embassy while the brown people from that country protest outside — demanding they get out — were, um, challenging.

“This feels like an SNL skit, it’s so ridiculous,” said Victoria Mattiuzzo, 32, who was wearing the red-yellow-blue flag of Venezuela as a cape and looking up at the left-wing protesters camping out in her homeland’s embassy, waving to their fans outside earlier this week.

“It’s kind of infuriating. They don’t even speak Spanish,” Mattiuzzo said. “They’re literally saying ‘Hands off Venezuela’ while they moved in and are living in our embassy.”

On Thursday, police finally pulled the protesters out of the building, more than a month after they took up residence.

No.

The divisive stunt did little more than frustrate Venezuelan expats, tarnish the activists’ cause and further divide Americans along the President Trump axis.

...

So why did the protesters do it?

...

Code Pink claims its goal, while beating drums and getting food deliveries hurled into windows , was to keep that outpost from being turned over to opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who declared himself Venezuela’s interim president in January.

This was after embattled President Nicolás Maduro won reelection, despite presiding over the unraveling of what had once been one of Latin America’s wealthiest nations. You’ve read the stories of staggering poverty, violence and hunger that is feeding a historic exodus out of Venezuela. It’s a humanitarian calamity.

Fishy that he won that election, right?

Yeah, most of the world thought so too. So they backed the new guy who swept in and said he was going to take over.

But Code Pink activists — and the Embassy Protection Collective that formed for this action — said Maduro’s folks invited them in, gave them the keys and told them to hold tight as long as they can. And they did, even as all of Maduro’s folks had to leave because their visas expired.

The power was cut off. The entrances were locked tight. The entire place was surrounded by a phalanx of officers, and the street was blocked. Venezuelans who need passport renewal of any kind of service were out of luck.

...

The Venezuelans outside the embassy weren’t buying it.

They were there to speak for their starving grandmas, their shopkeeper uncles who have been assaulted, their cousins trying to leave.

That’s not what this was about, they believed.

“This is all about Trump. And they are using us and our country as a way of protesting Trump,” said Adriana Fernandes, 20, a Venezuelan-American who wants to someday return to her family in Venezuela and live there. But not while Maduro is there.

In Maduro’s corner: Russia, China, Belurus, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Cuba and a 22-year-old barista named Kei.

Guaidó, meanwhile, has the backing of most of South America, Australia, the European Union, Canada and the United States.

“You know, Trudeau backed him, too!” one of the Venezuelan expats said. “Not just Trump.”

Code Pink was using Venezuela as an anti-Trump prop.

“Trump supported Guaidó, so they have to be against him because they’re against Trump, said Fernandes, a political science student at nearby George Washington University. “They don’t even understand how deep all this is, how far back this all goes. They are using our crisis just to go after Trump.”

For Code Pink, who are masters of political theater and provocative statements, this one was a stinker. And, finally on Thursday, the last four of its protesters holed up in the embassy got what was inevitably coming: eviction and arrest.
