(Steven Hayward) Watching the literally insane behavior on display in places like Portland and Seattle has prompted a lot of observers to suggest that many of the Antifa mobs suffer from mental illness. This is a thesis we talked about here back in April in “ Does Liberalism Cause Mental Illness?
READ THIS INSTEAD OF ‘WHITE FRAGILITY:’ Mark Hemingway , Book Editor of The Federalist, provides a lengthy but absolutely essential guide to navigating the perilous paths created by the Left’s army of purveyors of Critical Race Theory and, in the words of liberal Matt Taibbi, “Hitlerian race theory.
I’VE NEVER SEEN “SCIENCE” AS POLITICIZED AS THE SCIENCE OVER HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE: Yale epidemiologist: Dr. Fauci running ‘misinformation campaign’ against hydroxychloroquine: Accuses prominent doctor of harboring ‘total anti-science viewpoint.’
OUTKICK: Leaked Video Exposes George Floyd’s Death As Tragedy And Race Hoax Used To Divide Us. Will anyone locked inside the NBA’s groupthink bubble react to the leaked bodycam footage of George Floyd’s arrest and tragic death? The Daily Mail, a London-based newspaper, published the bodycam videos of two of the four former Minneapolis police officers charged with crimes in Floyd’s death.
RADICAL CHIC, FISHER-PRICE DIVISION: Behold, the Antifa Onesie : “Born out of resistance to Mussolini and Hitler in Europe during the 1920s and ’30s*, the antifa movement (“antifa” is simply short for “anti-fascist”) has burst into the headlines amidst opposition to the Trump administration and the alt-right.
This summer, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation started a project called the Cure Cloud. Patients with the disease can create an account in the website and sign up to have a “liquid biopsy” performed. This doesn’t replace the traditional process of sucking bone marrow out of your pelvic bone, since it’s a presence/absence test. But it does let researchers characterize the patient’s chromosomal aberrations.
This information is then matched with the patient’s course of treatment, and helps researchers determine what treatments work best on which aberrations. This supports what’s known as “precision medicine”.
I opened my account and sent in my consent for the blood draw, and hope this will lead to a cure. That would be nice.
For myself would be even nicer.
“It really has no meaning that can be specified and tested in the way that one tests hypotheses”

NEWS YOU CAN USE: A Few Tips In Case You Find Yourself In A Mandatory “Anti-Racism” Struggle Session . My first tip is, it is a mistake ever to make a declaratory statement of any kind, even “yes,” “no,” or “I understand.” So, if asked to assent to something, or to say something, what do you do?
My first tip is, it is a mistake ever to make a declaratory statement of any kind, even “yes,” “no,” or “I understand.” So, if asked to assent to something, or to say something, what do you do? The answer is, always respond with a question. Also, there is no need for the question that you pose to have anything to do with the question that has been posed to you. In fact, the less related your question is to the thing you are being asked to concede, the better. You can also try to ask a question even if no question has been posed to you. The point here would be to try to divert the “trainer” off his or her prepared outline or script, and onto something that challenges their assumptions.
Here are a few questions I have come up with if you want to have some fun:
Are you a racist? (If no,) How do you know that? What facts do you base that on? (If yes,) So why don’t you stop being a racist?
Can you provide us with a complete list of all words and terminology that are now deemed racist and/or disrespectful so that we can stop using those words going forward? If you can’t give a complete list, how about 20 (or 30 or 40) examples?
Do all black lives matter? (Note: Don’t make the mistake of using the phrase “all lives matter,” even in a question. That will get you branded as a “racist.” The question of whether all black lives matter will be a new one on them.). Do the lives of approximately 6500 black men murdered by other black men each year matter more or less than the the lives of the far smaller number of blacks killed by police each year (under 300), let alone the number of unarmed black men killed by police each year (which is around 20 or fewer, although you can’t get a precise figure because the Washington Post data base only includes deaths by shooting)?
How do you explain the fact that Nigerian-Americans and Ghanaian-Americans have higher household median income than native-born white Americans?
Does the NBA — where average salaries are multiple millions per year and active players are about 75% black — have an obligation to make itself “look more like America”? If not, why not?
That should be enough to get you off to a good start. Readers are invited to submit additional ideas. So if you find yourself having to go to one of these things, go and have a good time!
This article by John McWhorter is highly recommended. You might want to send it to anyone who’s on your case to “do the work” outlined in the book.
