Clown Establishes "Safe Space"

Safe in Waukesha
Creating a "safe space" or "safe zone" is the new fad on college campuses all over America. Some people are very concerned about it, but I figure it will have about as much impact on national life as pole sitting, streaking or planking did - none.  "Safe spaces" are difficult to create and maintain, especially in "gun-free zones" which most college campuses are, and no school president or administrator is going to bloody their hands to establish them in a meaningful way. It's just a passing fancy that students who are dedicated to learning and intellectual exploration are going to have to put up with for a year or two and, once they graduate, remember with grim amusement once they're living and working in the un-safe world of reality. This years fad started in the magical land of Mizzou and quickly spread to those infamous copy-cat Ivy's. Now it's everywhere - including Carroll University in Waukesha, WI where an innovative performance artist is creating "safe spaces" through impromptu appearances wearing clown garb. Hey, whatever it takes!

WaPo and the NYTimes bear witness:
PRINCETON, N.J. — Princeton’s student activists have got everyone talking.
A 32-hour sit-in and a marathon meeting inside the president’s’ office ended with President Christopher Eisgruber signing a document that promised, among other things, to consider the removal of Woodrow Wilson’s name from the university.
Yep, scrub his name from Princeton. Hell, scrub his name from US history. I'm all for it - this is a movement I support without reservation. Of course, most of the Democrat party will go down the drain with Woodrow once the scrubbing is finished and we rinse the sink, but that's history for ya'.

My guess is that, unfortunately, Princeton will NOT expurgate WW from the institution but might place some kind of "safe space" sign beside his statue saying something judgmental about his racism and personality disorder but reminding students that his heart was in the right place - he loved government. But I want Princeton students to know, there is a better way to create a safe space and you don't have to look far to find an very effective example.

Last week I went to the NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament to watch the Princeton Tigers take on the USC Trojans (neither one are very feminine mascots but whatever) and arriving late I parked my car about 1/4 mile from the stadium but even from that distance I heard the bellow of a fan drifting out from the bleachers. As I approached the tournament I counted the cadence of every shout, every cheer, every word of encouragement from this dedicated Tigers Dad and he average a shout out every 6 to 10 seconds. He kept up the encouragement THE ENTIRE GAME and, in doing so, created a "safe space" of at least 15 feet around his person - no one dared sit near him on the bleachers. He was alone, protected and safe. Here is the lesson young Ivy League strivers - shout it out at the top of your lungs longer and louder than anyone can bear and you'll find your "safe space" - create it yourself, don't ask someone to make it for you, and you will find your freedom.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
