School district pulls 2 classic novels off
required reading list, citing racial slurs

CBS News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/9/2018 1:49:29 AM

District officials in Duluth, Minnesota, schools have removed "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" from the required reading list because of racial slurs in the books, CBS Minnesota reports. Michael Cary, the district´s director of curriculum and instruction, told The Duluth News Tribune the books will still be optional reading and available in the school libraries, but they´ll be replaced next year by other books that touch the same topics without language that makes students uncomfortable. "We felt that we could still teach the same standards and expectations through other novels that didn´t require

The strength and value of Mark Twain´s book is that he, through Huck Finn, humanized Jim (and all black people,) on that rafting trip.
How idiotic is it to hide children from the truth? Idiotic and insane.
The ´terrible´ word describing Jim, by the way, pops up in just about any rap video.
And it dehumanizes blacks. Yet that rap crap is ubiquitous.
To Kill A Mockingbird, in my opinion, does not rise to the level of Huck Finn.
Although the movie was excellent.
But I would not ban the book. To a discerning reader, the comparison of the two books is part of intellectual development.

This latest outrage is an American tragedy.
We stood by and watched the liberal socialist indoctrination of our children.
We stood by and watched the sexualization of small children.
We stood by and watched traditional marriage and sexual roles vanish.
We stood by and watched as God was removed from the public square.
We stood by and watched as lying became as common as breathing.
We stood by and watched our national monuments and our flag being desecrated,disrespected, and even thrown in the trash.
And now we have two magnificent pieces of literature, undoubtedly just the beginning of a purge of alleged racism, being removed. The removal of America’s entire history is only one rung of the ladder away.
That ladder down leads to oblivion. I weep for America.

The answer is to just change the spelling of the ´bad´ words. A good example would be the bag of bird seed I bought recently for my finch feeder. Over the years, I´ve fed them Niger Seeds. This fall I noticed the bag is now labeled "Nijer Seeds". I feel better now, don´t you?

What´s next to be banned, then: let me see- What about the History of the American Revolution because it calls the British "red Coats". Next, of course will be the history of how the West was settled because it slurs Native Americans (calls them the slanderous slur, "Indians"). And of course, the entire history of WWI will have to be purged, too- can´t call German´s "Square Heads" or WWII Germans, "Krauts".

Would they allow Mark Twain´s (Samuel Clemens) wonderful book, "Life on the Mississippi"? It barely touches on the questions of color, but has the word, "Plantation" in it. What about Leon Uris´ extraordinarily emotional historical novels, "Mila 18" and "Exodus"? Because it so derogatorily details behavior of Nazis and Arabs? And do not forget the many official historical volumes of Sam Morrison on the U.S. Navy history in WWII- it is loaded with contemporary racial terms describing black mess "boys" and "Filipino" servants on board U.S. Naval ships in that era.

See, that´s the trouble with banning history based on current and passing self righteousness. “To Kill A Mockingbird” and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" make people uncomfortable because that is exactly what they are supposed to do! But these over educated idiots do not understand that at all,. Thus they are the very progenitors of perpetuating such racial serotypes. And that is likely what they are trying to do, isn’t it?

If you erase exactly what happened in history, how can you learn how much we have progressed in the ensuing years??

Not knowing history allows BLM to declare that we are still just as racist as plantation/slave owners ever were.

Part of this enormous educational failure is the that the nature and purpose of literature has been forgotten ... or do I mean discarded? Authors write depictions of the world as it is/was -- they´re not necessarily projecting their own biases onto the conduct, dialogue or circumstances of the characters they create. They are painting a picture, not posting a handbill.

Literature has played an essential role in portraying the human condition, and through that we come to understand human nature more completely. By doing so, we also come to recognize not just the foibles of human nature, but the potential in human relationships and endeavor.

This kind of stupidity has been infecting the arts for a long time -- no one can presume to imagine anything anymore. Human frailty is now a punishable crime.

Trump Administration Tells Congress
It Has a Deal to Revive ZTE
New York Times, by Ana Swanson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/25/2018 1:16:19     Post Reply
Washington - The Trump administration has told lawmakers it has reached a deal that would keep the Chinese telecom firm ZTE alive, a person familiar with the matter said. The move could allow trade negotiations with China to move forward, but would probably provoke an intense backlash in Congress. Under the agreement brokered by the Commerce Department, ZTE would pay a substantial fine, hire American compliance officers to be placed at the firm and make changes to its current management team. (Snip) The Chinese company was recently banned from buying American technology components for seven years as

The president of the labor union representing Border Patrol agents criticized President Trump’s move to deploy the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border, calling it a “colossal waste of resources.” Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, said the union has “seen no benefit” from the deployment of about 1,600 troops so far, according to the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. Judd said he originally supported the move because past deployments have been helpful to the Border Patrol, but that this time, “that has not happened at all.” "When I found out the National Guard was going to be on the border.

A US Senate committee has passed a defence bill that would see Turkey barred from purchasing Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike fighter jets as tensions continue over its detention of US citizen Andrew Brunson. (Snip) “There is tremendous hesitancy [about] transferring sensitive F-35 planes and technology to a nation who has purchased a Russian air defence system designed to shoot these very planes down,” Senator Shaheen said. Earlier today, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hami Aksoy told reporters that the measure was “against the spirit of our alliance with the US”, but that Ankara would respond if the

The Israeli Supreme Court has fully backed the army’s policy of shooting unarmed Palestinian protesters in the occupied Gaza Strip, issuing its decision yesterday in response to two petitions filed by human rights groups. According to legal rights centre Adalah, one of the petitioners, the court’s decision gives a “a green light to its continued use of snipers and live fire against Palestinian protesters”. Three Supreme Court justices unanimously rejected both petitions, one of which was filed by Adalah and Al-Mezan, the other by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, Yesh Din, Gisha and HaMoked.

FDA´s pitiful, politicized press to
pull baby teething meds from market
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 5/25/2018 12:06:49     Post Reply
The Food and Drug Administration issued parents some stern warnings about teething medicines for their babies, and simultaneously told manufacturers and retailers that if they didn’t “voluntarily” stop selling the product to the tiny toddler demographic, they would face legal action from the feds. Voluntary compliance — gotta love the federal definition of that, yes? But the bigger question with this FDA message to consumers is this: Why now? And the bigger theme, of course, would be this: Shouldn’t parents, rather than government, be the final deciders of what’s best for their babies? After all, the FDA has been warning about the

New York - Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s adopted son, Moses Farrow, on Wednesday defended his father from allegations of sexual assault made by his sister. In a nearly 5,000-word post, Moses elaborated further on claims he had made in previous interviews that his mother was physically abusive to him and her other children and that she coerced her daughter Dylan into accusing Allen of assault. “I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention,” Farrow wrote in the post titled A Son Speaks Out.

President Trump is on a collision course with Congress on ZTE, the Chinese telecommunications giant sanctioned for doing business with Iran and North Korea. Trump has publicly signaled his desire to ease the restrictions on ZTE as he seeks China´s cooperation on North Korea talks and hammering out a trade deal. But Trump’s pivot on ZTE has received terrible reviews from Republicans in Congress, who have joined with Democrats in passing measures to ensure the restrictions are kept in place.

(Video) - Stunning footage shows much of the US lit up with bright lightning as it spreads across the country. The video – taken by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – comes from a brand new satellite launched to survey weather over the US. It allows scientists and weather experts to see activity above the Western Hemisphere in unprecedented detail. The data shown in the video can be used to plot where lightning is striking. That, in turn, allows them to predict whether intense weather and storms might be forming and then becoming dangerous – potentially allowing experts to spot

(Video) Washington - President Donald Trump has canceled his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In a letter to Kim, Trump wrote that it would be “inappropriate” to hold the planned historic summit. “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long planned meeting,” he wrote. The summit was to take place June 12th in Singapore. Trump did leave the door open to a future meeting. “I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters.

North Korea on Thursday demolished what it claims to be its nuclear test site, setting off several explosions over the course of a few hours in the presence of foreign journalists. Sky News reporter Tom Cheshire was invited to the explosion and told the station that he and his colleagues walked up into the mountains to watch the demolition. “There was a huge explosion, you could feel it. Dust came at you, the heat came at you. It was extremely loud,” Cheshire said. The explosions at the supposed nuclear test site deep in the mountains were centered on three tunnels into the underground site and a number of observation towers in the

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress. The conceit of those claiming Mr. Trump has crossed some line in ordering the Justice Department to comply with oversight is that “investigators” are beyond question.

Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, who was fired for lying under oath, spent $70,000 in taxpayer dollars on a conference table. The FBI also redacted the conference table’s steep price tag from documents that members of the Senate Judiciary Committee requested, in an apparent attempt to hide it from Congress. In a letter sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley revealed that the FBI had redacted the cost of the table from a document he and his fellow members of the committee requested to see. Grassley said many of the redactions within the documents made no
