    Default The SJW Thread

    One to make LJR's blood boil.........

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/29/ca...e-to-the-back/

    A music festival in Halifax, Canada has apologized for “overt racism” following a volunteer staffer’s refusal to move to the back because she is Caucasian.

    According to the National Post, performer Lido Pimienta, who won the 2017 Polaris Prize, frequently asks all white members of her audience to move to the back and give up their seats to non-white audience members. They must do so regardless of whether they pay more for their seating.

    The Halifax Pop Explosion music festival is apologizing for the actions of a photographer who refused to acquiesce to Pimienta’s request during her October 19 show. Her refusal to do so was considered an “interruption” and deemed an act of “overt racism,” according to the festival’s board of directors, who are now promising to make changes to the event.

    The board promises to improve “anti-oppression and anti-racism training” for their staff next year, essentially asking them to give in to the demands of people who supposedly face more oppression than they do.

    “We are sorry that one of our volunteers interrupted your art, your show, and your audience by being aggressive and racist,” wrote vice-chairman Georgie Dudka on Facebook.

    The festival states that the volunteer photographer and several other members of the audience reacted poorly to Pimienta’s urging for them to move to the back. Pimienta invited “brown girls to the front.” When the volunteer refused, Pimienta took it upon herself to remove her from the event.

    Dudka wrote: “They have since received notification from the festival that they are no longer welcome to volunteer with us.”

    “We will not accept this behaviour and neither should you,” he added. “Be responsible for your friends – talk to them and support them as they move towards unpacking their racism. People of Colour deserve safe spaces and it is your responsibility to help. It is also ours.”

    According to Allie O’Manique, who tours with Pimienta and attended the show, the female photographer’s refusal to remove herself from the spot near the front prompted other audience members near her to become enraged over her insistence of staying.

    “She just kept saying, ‘Move to the back,’” said O’Manique. “Finally after saying it about 10 times — and the woman refused to move — (Pimienta) said, ‘You’re cutting into my set time and you’re disrespecting these women, and I don’t have time for this.’”

    An audience member who was one of the women invited to the front told National Post that she was surprised by the photographer’s refusal to move and blamed it on the crowd for believing in the concept of “reverse racism.”

    “I don’t know if I would say it can be attributed to the crowd Pop Explosion gets, or more so just the sort of people that exist in Halifax and the mindsets that prevail here,” she said.


    “All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.”

    Intersectionality is the same as Apartheid and it is only the SJWs that refuse to see that.

    Did you know that one of her first roles was playing the nurse who looks after David in Flight of the Navigator?

    If people don't want race to be an issue, then surely the way to do that is to embrace equality philosophies - e.g. Treating everyone as equal - over ones which promote division based on race?

    Intersectionality is just a theory that says there are multiple forms of structural social advantage and that some people benefit from more than one; so if you believe that society tends to favour the wealthy, and you also believe that society tends to favour the good looking, then you accept that being wealthy and good looking doubles your advantage - and that the converse is true of ugly, poor folk (or "scutty grotbags" as us megabucks studs prefer to call them).

    As a theory it has been hijacked but, even in the most egregious examples such as the above, it's clearly not even remotely like apartheid.

    Agreed, but in this case the person was a photographer. So it's highly likely that she'd have been there to earn as part of her job.

    Which would make it even more understandable as to why she'd want to be as close to the stage as possible too.

    They did, and they were branded an "overt racist"

    I only know the very basics of either, so appriciate that.

    Philisophically though, when you do break it down to basics, it's all about segrigation.

    And negative segrigation or favouritism based on race is racism, whichever way the colours run. To do that and then brand the people being segrigated as "racist" is a laughable example of how much decline modern the SJW-influenced culture breeds.

    The moment you start separating, defining and organising a hierarchy based on group race, gender or ethnicity, you have Apartheid.

    It has not been "hijacked" at all, intersectionality is just like apartheid which was claimed by the NP to just be "separate development" when in fact it was straightforward oppression based on racial and gender criteria.

    The world has gone mad, universities are now a disgrace to education. How on earth can you learn how to interact with the world if you ban all opposing views from airtime.

    Prime example is Joey Barton said he couldn't take David Unsworth seriously as a manager because of his weight. Although there are arguments for and against that argument which are sane people were ringing in going berserk saying talksport needs to get Joey Barton on and inclusions and diversity course. Honestly this new world we are building is dire and so depressing!!

    That's inadequate as a definition, but if you hold to it, then you must consider Israel an apartheid state. Surprising development.

    Also, it doesn't come close as a definition of intersectionality, so entirely useless to you as an analogue, as well.

    I have said it on here before, Israel is stuck with a paradox of trying to be both a Jewish state and a secular democracy. It needs to be both to survive but that inevitably leads to contradictions and compromise.

    The problem is further complicated by the fact that many of the religious aspects of Judaism push Israel towards becoming a theocracy and yet large sections of the Jewish population are secular or atheist.

    Unlike the old South Africa and the contemporary Intersectionalists who entrench apartheid in their dogma, Israel tries to move away from it under almost impossible odds.

    So define intersectionality for us. Because what you posted earlier simply ducks the hard issues surrounding it.

    Does it though mate? (Serious question, BTW)

    It sometimes seems for Israel, the “status quo”is as good as it gets, hence perhaps why there’s been little real movement on a two-state solution since the 1970s?

    I did. I deliberately used non-contentious examples (wealth, looks) for illustrative purposes, but the definition stands.

    The concept was born in response to an anachronistic clause in US civil rights law that precluded prosecution of multiple discriminations in relation to an individual incident; so if, for example, a black woman pressed a discrimination claim against her employer, she could only claim on the grounds of gender or race. Intersectionality came into being for the purpose of challenging that legal provision; to say that it's possible for a black woman to be discriminated against on the grounds of gender and race - which is, I think, an obviously justifiable position to take.

    Currently everyone is happy with the status quo.

    Israel can avoid the dealing with difficult issues.
    The Palestinian Authority can continue getting massive international funding.
    Hamas can hang to their Fiefdom.

    However a lot is happening quietly behind the scenes, since the Arab Spring fiascos. Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi are closer than they have ever been diplomatically, commercially and militarily, and if the momentum continues a lasting peace is possible in the next few years.

    So does that mean that when a white heterosexual male is told to "STFU and just listen" because of his privilege he can claim legally to be triply victimised?

    Intersectionality is Apartheid, no more and no less.

    Fit as fuck Hungarian politician looking to ban pro-homosexual propeganda from Hungarian cinema........

    http://newobserveronline.com/hungary...-from-cinemas/

    Hungarian nationalist Jobbik Member of Parliament and deputy delegation leader Dóra Dúró has announced that she would ban homosexual propaganda in cinemas, and opposes homo marriage, civil unions and homo adoption.

    Making the comments on her Facebook page after media reports quoted her as saying that if homos wanted to vote for Jobbik, they would be welcome to do so, Dúró said that the media’s reporting of her statements were “unbelievable,” and that the questions posed to her during a press conference had been “provocative.”

    At the earlier press conference, Dúró had been asked to explain statements made in an October 23 speech by Jobbik chairman Gábor Vona, in which he said he was not interested in whether people are liberal or conservative, and he wants to focus on what unites Hungarians rather than on what divides them.

    Dúró explained that Vona had not been speaking about any political cooperation with other parties, but about the Hungarian voters.

    Furthermore, as Vona had said, she continued, Jobbik would like to represent every Hungarian citizen who identifies with the party’s value system.

    When asked whether homosexuals are included in this group, Dúró said that if someone is of such sexual orientation but also feels that Jobbik represents their interests, then the party would be glad to have their votes.

    Later, Dúró, who has three children, explained on her Facebook page as follows:

    “I do not support the marriage of homosexuals, nor the registration of their civil unions, which has unfortunately already been written into law, and I also oppose the adoption of children in their case.

    “I would ban the provocative [Budapest] Pride, which causes mass hooliganism. Furthermore, I would ban homosexual propaganda from cinemas that belong to the Budapest municipality, where it receives a platform year after year courtesy of Fidesz.

    “I think ensuring the rise of Hungarians can be done by men and women having children in marriages based on free decisions.

    “The biggest current problem for Hungarians is the catastrophic demographic situation, which is why we cannot promote anything that exacerbates it.”

    After the Hungarian parliamentary elections on 6 April 2014, the party polled 1,020,476 votes, securing 20.54 percent of the total, making them Hungary’s third largest party in the National Assembly.
