NPR transgender 'teacher'

If you think a child this young (R) should get to radically redefine gender and parenting roles, maybe you’re the one with “gender-identity confusion”

If NPR were really interested in reporting the news impartially (as opposed to conducting a social-engineering propaganda campaign), they would probably report on this interesting development, reported by Life Site News (also covered at The Federalist Papers Project):

(Short version: Maya Dillard Smith was the interim ACLU director for a whole state; she’s impeccably liberal but resigned because she cannot support the militant new transgender activism.)

The African-American woman who leads a state chapter of the ACLU has resigned, citing her own daughters’ “frightened” reaction to biological males using the women’s restroom.

I had heard that Obama gave a speech in Indiana making the case for voting for Democrats, but I had no idea of the, er, eloquence and elegance of his arguments…

First, the Obama administration and the liberal news media tried to tell us that cutting a small fraction of the federal budget for this year (a. k. a. “the sequester”) would inflict unspeakable misery on America.  Then they said, No, wait, never mind, you probably won’t even notice it!

Now that the much-anticipated day has arrived, Jim Geraghty has a hilarious round-up of satirical conservative reactions.  More under #OnTheSceneSequesterReport.

Dishonor upon Dishonor

November 6, 2009

Mark Steyn has a couple of quick thoughts on what looks like the growing trend of Muslim “honor killings” in the multicultural West—diversity is strength, don’t you know; just one more thread in our rich multicultural tapestry—and, apropos, on yet another double standard in the news media.

Update (October 1st, 2014):  For whatever reason, the two links to Mark Steyn in NRO’s The Corner above seem to have been disconnected.  One of them, or at least a related post, is here:

Excerpt:

I’ve noted this phenomenon many times: See, for example, here at NR, “Noor Ignored”, “Watery Graves”, “The Stranglehold of Political Correctness”, and “Headless Body in Legless Story”. But nothing changes. Multiculturalism trumps feminism, and so the media accept a two-tier sisterhood in which Muslim girls are run over, stabbed, strangled, drowned and decapitated for wanting to live like the women they read about in The New York Times and The Washington Post. No matter how novel or arresting the details of a story are, the PC blinkers go on immediately. As Miss Chesler adds:

In 2009, the gruesome beheading of Aasiya Z. Hassan was covered only five days later by the New York Times—and then mainly to explain that Islam had nothing to do with it and that anyone who believes to the contrary is misguided or prejudiced.
