Feminist Magazine Wants White Women to Abort Their Babies

Feminist Magazine Wants White Women to Abort Their Babies

A feminist magazine is calling on white women to abort their babies in order to stop the spread of white supremacy. They ask that these women raise colored children instead. Medusa Magazine, a feminist blog, published an article that resulted in a huge backlash from readers of the site. In the article, they first argue that abortion is a misunderstood concept, and why the pro-choice movement should abandon the argument that abortion is a constitutional right because the constitution was written by racist white men.   Columnist, Nicole Valentine, writes “it is critical to understand that the appeal to abortions being “Constitutional” reinforces white supremacy. There is no way around it. The Constitution was drafted and signed by white men, for white men.” She goes on to say that “women of color” don’t have as much access to abortion facilities as white women, and “women of color simply do not have the absolute choice when it comes to their bodies.” She continued, “It has been proven that the embedded systems of white supremacy do not act impartially to all women. Because white supremacy prevents women of color from their freedom to choose, we must level the playing field by other means.” However, Valentine never cites any sources to back up these claims. According to the CDC, in 2013 black females accounted for 35% of the nation’s abortions, even though blacks only make up 13.3% of the population. The number comes out to 128,682 black abortions. But it’s likely to be much higher because this was only gathered from 29 reporting areas.   Next, Valentine tells progressive, white women to quit...
Obama Admin Infiltrators Sabotaging the Trump Doctrine

Obama Admin Infiltrators Sabotaging the Trump Doctrine

With foreign correspondent, Cheri Nocita Berens. In his inaugural speech, Donald Trump promised to “unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth.” This promise is in jeopardy because of Obama holdovers and new appointments who are working to block the president’s core doctrines. This will disappoint his supporters both here and abroad. Egypt, which has been at war with the Muslim Brotherhood for years, took Trump’s victory as a harbinger of joint action against the MB. The day after Donald Trump’s election, his Middle East advisor, Walid Phares told the Egyptian news site, Youm7: “Trump considers the Muslim Brotherhood a dangerous group that fuels the Jihadist ideology.” That same day, Egypt’s Al-Ahram reported that “Egypt MPs said the election of Donald Trump ‎… means hard times ahead for the Muslim Brotherhood and good ‎news for the country’s President Sisi.” The article recalled that on September 19th, “Phares told ‎Egyptian MPs … visiting America … that Trump considers the Muslim ‎Brotherhood a radical movement…. ‘There is ‎no problem at all with Trump’s administration, in that the Muslim Brotherhood would be designated ‎a [foreign] terrorist organization (FTO),’ said Phares.‎” Margaret Azer, a Coptic MP told Al-Ahram: “Trump’s victory represents a ‎radical departure from the Obama-Clinton clan ‎who supported the Muslim Brotherhood and other ‎political Islam movements,” said Azer, adding ‎that “in fact Hillary Clinton was the candidate ‎of the Muslim Brotherhood—rather than the ‎Democratic party—in the US presidential ‎election.” During his January 11th confirmation hearing, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson included the Brotherhood with al-Qaeda as “agents of radical Islam.” It seemed...
Are Words More Harmful Than Actions? A Contrarian’s View

Are Words More Harmful Than Actions? A Contrarian’s View

With all the talk of violent rhetoric inspiring real bloodshed, the recent manslaughter conviction of Michelle Carter in Massachusetts just adds fuel to the controversy. Granted, the case of Carter, now twenty, who urged her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to take his own life, is not the same as violent political speech, but the question remains: can words kill? Most conservatives don’t think so, including Rush Limbaugh in a recent rant. But one can also make the case that words do kill, and those whose language is hateful and lethal should be held accountable. Limbaugh adamantly opposed the verdict and hoped that it would be overturned. This sets a dangerous precedent, he said, given that Carter was miles away, urging Roy on via texts. The young man was responsible for his own death. Her behavior was reprehensible, according to Limbaugh, but he went on to lampoon the idea that according to liberals, Roy was a victim. Limbaugh has always been a vocal proponent of the idea that individuals should be held accountable for their actions, and not blame them on the words or persuasion of others. That is, indeed, a hallmark of conservative thought. On the other hand, a hallmark of civilized thought, accepted by everyone but the occasional grenade-thrower, is that you can’t yell ‘Fire’ in a crowded theater. In other words, say pretty much what you want, but not if your words cause immediate, foreseeable harm. Some will argue that the ‘crowded theater’ analogy doesn’t work well here since Carter was not urging a mob to mass violence. True, but to the extent that the analogy does...
Lesson Two: How Make A Shelter

Lesson Two: How Make A Shelter

In part one I discussed different ways to build a fire.  In this lesson, I’ll teach you how to make a shelter in an emergency. Imagine the following scenario:  You take your family out for a day hike at Mount Rushmore.  You’re having a great time. As you’re hiking along, you look up at the sky and notice it looking little dark.  You tell yourself that you will be okay, as you stop for a quick family picnic. Time gets away from you, and your attention is quickly broken from your family and up towards the sky.  You start to clean up and as you stuff everything back into your bag, a big crash of lightning hits in the area and your children start to panic. You tell your family it will be okay, and to just grab what they can and double time it back to the car.  Since you only planned a day trip, you don’t have a shelter in your bag. The storm is starting to intensify, and you realize you need to take cover and find shelter. This is what I call the worst case scenario that can happen and lucky for you, I am here to help by showing you how to build that life-saving shelter.  Shelter is one of the most important things for survival during an off grid situation.  The rule of three 3’s is a good place to start. You can only survive without shelter for three hours, water for three days, and food for three weeks.   Shelter is very important for survival, and depending on the weather conditions it...
Tough Truths: The Case of Philando Castile

Tough Truths: The Case of Philando Castile

The video is heartbreaking. Moments after she live-streamed the death of her boyfriend at the hands of a police officer, a woman cries as she sits in the back of a squad; her young daughter comforting her, saying “it’s ok, Mommy, I’m right here with you!” The little girl herself begins to cry moments later. That was July of 2016 in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, following the officer-involved shooting of Philando Castile. Fast forward nearly a year. After a jury trial deliberation, St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty of manslaughter. Should people—particularly African Americans—be afraid after this verdict? If you’re on social media, if you watch virtually any mainstream commentary program, blog or show—heck yeah, you should be. As the story goes, a black guy got shot point blank in his car by an over-eager cop after simply reaching for his license, right? But just give me a minute. People, we have to be willing to look at facts, not emotion. We, just as the twelve-person jury (including two people of color) did in a court of law, must look at all the facts; not the simply the ones we think we see, or want to see. If we want a society where we ALL can live freely and fearlessly, we must resist the urge to pass convict via public opinion, and we must be willing to examine tough truths. Let’s dig in. But he was just reaching for his license! That’s where Diamond Reynolds’ Castile’s girlfriend) Facebook livestream starts. And that’s where the court of public opinion kicked in. I’ll be honest:...
