´Slavery,´ pregnancy drove
California professor to accost
teen pro-lifer, say defenders

Fox News, by Scott Steepleton

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/16/2014 5:17:44 AM

Supporters of Mireille Miller-Young cite the "cultural legacy of slavery" and even the effects of pregnancy to explain why the feminist studies professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara would accost a teenager spreading a pro-life message on campus. The pregnant 38-year-old who pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of theft, vandalism and battery after stealing and destroying an anti-abortion poster and injuring a a16-year-old activist, says she’s sorry for some of her actions and hopes to “makes amends through community service.” An associate professor whose course work, which includes pornography and sex work, has gained her the nickname the “porn

Mireille Miller-Young is a proven racist, hate monger who should never, ever be allowed in a classroom again.

The "porn prof" is nuts. More proof that Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. Why would any colleagues celebrate an angry black woman acting badly, unless they were suffering from the same mental disorder?

In my faculty department in the Big Ten, one-third of my colleagues are on prescription medication for mood swings, and another third ought to be. I never talk about politics or non-departmental business, all the rest of them are Democrats and talk about it non-stop. There´s a connection there. . .

So pregnancy is slavery to this Leftist?
Then maybe someone can explain why black people kept themselves in slavery after the Emancipation Proclamation by procreating.

I think we´d all be safer and could offer help if we knew the warning signs of CLOS (Cultural Legacy of Slavery). Like I avoid unkempt people wandering the streets talking to themselves because that´s a sign of mental illness, usually schizophrenia.

In a sane world, child protective services would be notified so they could investigate her fitness to care for a child but we all know her type of violence is tolerated/rewarded. I think the baby is in danger.

I would be surprised if she has not had an abortion yet, although I pray she has not, and pray for that child either way.

A very stupid move, on the part of the pro-lifers. University campuses are known hotspots of authoritarianism. They are filled with narcissistic students and professors.

Antagonizing a narcissist can easily result in a violent response. Their worldviews cannot usually be changed, and reasoning with them is a waste of time. They simply lack the ability to reason about subjective views.

Is blaming the prof´s hostile actions on cultural factors racist or deep? In the ´progressive´ world view, that depends on whether her accusers or her apologists are making the assertion...

Second point: While the equivalence mentioned in #6 is implied by the headline, it´s not overtly made in the article. Still, the society of man-hating feminists do equate pregnancy to slavery, just as they characterize all sex as rape -- even (and especially) in marriage.

A couple of things here. The "lady´s name is hyphenated so you know right off the bat she´s a libtard nutcase. She blames slavery and hormones for her lame behavior. Typical libtard in making excuses for everything and this person is a college professor. What is it with the libnuts who teach in the UC system especially Berzerkley? It makes you wonder about the people teaching our kids in universities these days. Also I´m prolife and I have to tell you Ms Miller-Young is lucky that she´s preggers because if she wasn´t if that had been me she would´ve got the snot beat out of her. When liberals get nasty they will get no quarter from yours truly.

Sheriffs miffed about Biden’s

Aspen Daily News [CO], by Carolyn Sackariason    Original Article

The sheriffs on both ends of the Roaring Fork Valley expressed their displeasure Sunday about the impact and costs that Vice President Joe Biden’s short visit to Aspen this past weekend placed on their communities and agencies. Helicopters buzzing above Aspen and multiple road closures along Highway 82 and Interstate 70 on Friday and Saturday accompanied Biden’s entourage, which involved a 40-car motorcade and at least nine local law enforcement agencies. Biden, who stayed in town for less than 24 hours, was here to speak at a private event involving journalist Charlie Rose and other entities, according to sources. “The responsible thing to

The three Afghan army officers who fled a joint military exercise on Cape Cod and were caught yesterday along the Canadian border at a Niagara Falls bridge probably feared going back home, one expert said. “It could have been something they cooked up once they were here,” said Scott Stewart of Stratfor, an international consulting firm. “By any measure, things are going to be grim (in Afghanistan) once the U.S. pulls out and especially for members of the security forces.” The AWOL Afghans went through an “extensive vetting process” before they were granted a visa, according to Max Blumenfeld, a spokesman for

Congressional Republicans cannot do much to make President Obama devise a credible strategy to defeat the Islamic State, or to counter Russian expansionism. There is one thing they can do, however, to contribute to the recovery of American strength overseas, particularly if they take the Senate this fall. They can make it clear that they intend for the next president to have the military means at his disposal to meet whatever threats we face. Those capabilities are steadily and quickly eroding. Budget cuts will force the Army to further scale back training for units based in the United States, allowing only

Kazantsev, who speaks three languages and maintained a 3.6 GPA while triple majoring in political science, geography, and global studies at Long Island’s Hofstra University, was booted with a friend from the school’s Alpha Phi sorority last year after allegedly hazing pledges, according to the website Jezebel.com. Kazantsev, the sorority’s head of recruitment, was exceptionally hard on new pledges, and made their lives “a living hell,” a tipster told the web site.

Those in politics who spend much of their time railing about the dangers associated with anthropogenic climate change will often assert that the public largely shares their concerns about catastrophic climate shifts. You rarely hear from those oft-cited members of the public who are supposedly alarmed by climate change alarmism. Reason Magazine’s Kmele Foster, co-host of Fox Business Network’s The Independents, revealed why that is when he took to the People’s Climate March in New York City this weekend armed with a camera and a microphone. Unsurprisingly, the People’s March more resembled a throwback anti-capitalism

My mother was a child abuser. I was, too. In fact, growing up, pretty much every parent I knew abused their kids. Or so many of Adrian Peterson´s critics would have you believe. Peterson, a star of the Minnesota Vikings, was arrested recently for child abuse after hitting his 4-year-old son with a switch. A "switch," for those who don´t know, is a long twig. I should know, having been on the receiving end of quite a few. When no switch was available, mom was also known to employ a section of the orange plastic track from my Hot Wheels. Admittedly, a

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait.

Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

The United States and allies launched airstrikes against Sunni militants in Syria early Tuesday, unleashing a torrent of cruise missiles and precision-guided bombs from the air and sea on the militants’ de facto capital of Raqqa and along the porous Iraq border. American fighter jets and armed Predator and Reaper drones, flying alongside warplanes from several Arab allies, struck a broad array of targets in territory controlled by the militants, known as the Islamic State. American defense officials said the targets included weapons supplies, depots, barracks and buildings the militants use for command and control. Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired
