Islamic Republic of Iran: 80 more girls’ schools targeted in chemical attacks, dozens of girls hospitalized~Muslim professor insists that the freedom of expression must be restricted in order to stop ‘Islamophobia’

Madhara: 'Zero' confidence in Iran poisoning arrests

Arrests have been made after the suspected poisonings at girls' schools in Iran. These poisonings come in the wake of protests across the country after the death of a 22-year-old woman who was detained by the country's morality police. Moj Madhara, the founding member of the Iranian Diaspora Collective, said despite the arrests, she has "zero confidence" that anyone will be held accountable. The regime in Iran, Madhara argues, has not been transparent, showing itself to be populated by bad actors.

Dr. Mohammadreza Hashemian says that “the gases used to poison the students are a combination of different chemicals, which it is ‘not possible for ordinary people’ to access.”

The Islamic regime once again appears to be endeavoring to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60). It is intent on punishing these girls who have dared to shake the very foundations of the regime by venturing out without hijab and calling for the end of the Islamic regime.

“Chemical Attacks On Schoolgirls Surge As Islamic Republic Denies Foul Play,” Iran International, March 5, 2023:

About 80 more schools were targeted by chemical attacks on Sunday with dozens of girls hospitalized, as the international community demands answers to the mysterious poisonings.

The poisonings, targeting girls’ schools since November, have been ramped up this week with hundreds more girls falling sick across Iran.

Social media videos surfaced on Sunday show that students were poisoned in many cities, including Fouladshahr and some other cities in Esfahan (Isfahan) province, Karaj and Fardis in Alborz province, Tabriz, Yazd, Hamedan, Shiraz, Ramhormoz and Mahshahr in Khuzestan province, Qazvin, Gonbad-e Kavus in Golestan, and the capital Tehran. Only In the city of Yazd, at least eight schools were attacked on Sunday.

On Saturday alone, schools in 33 cities were targeted by the same gas that has already affected around 1,500 students in recent weeks.

The scale of the intentional poisoning of female students — which started in the religious city of Qom and spread further throughout the country and reached schools in small towns and villages — has stepped up in recent weeks, becoming a daily occurrence.

State media is trying to downplay the seriousness of the incidents, with some officials such as former MP Jamileh Kadivar calling the attacks “mass hysteria.”

Many, such as Dr. Mohammadreza Hashemian, a doctor in the special care department of Masih Daneshvari Hospital, fear the poisonings are being led by regime authorities. He said that the gases used to poison the students are a combination of different chemicals, which it is “not possible for ordinary people” to access.

With women and girls having been at the forefront of protests, burning headscarves and cutting their hair in defiance of the regime, it is believed that the attacks are a coordinated effort to deter the young students from supporting ongoing unrest, triggered by the death of the young woman, Mahsa Amini. Her death in morality police custody after being arrested for the inappropriate use of her headscarf, has triggered national protest since September.

The patterns of the school attacks are similar to chemical attacks committed by radical Islamists in Chechnya and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

The regime’s Health Minister Bahram Eynollahi admitted that the girls have suffered “mild poison” attacks, while Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said on Saturday, “In field studies, suspicious samples have been found, which are being investigated… to identify the causes of the students’ illness, and the results will be published as soon as possible.”

Outraged by the Islamic Republic’s inaction and reluctance to identify and arrest those behind the attacks, many parents, students and other activists have held demonstrations outside the buildings of the Education Ministry across the country, but security forces attacked the gatherings and arrested some of the parents and students.

In a gathering of parents outside an Education Ministry building in Tehran, people chanted “Basij, Guards, you are our Daesh,” likening the Revolutionary Guards and other security forces to the Islamic State group. Comparing the Islamic Republic with the Taliban, protesters also chanted “Death to the Taliban, whether in Iran or Afghanistan”….


Muslim professor insists that the freedom of expression must be restricted in order to stop ‘Islamophobia’



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Mohamed Azam Mohamed Adil, who is Director-General of the Institute of Islamic Understanding (IKIM) and is identified as an “associate professor” in the byline of this article, insists that criticism of Islam and opposition to jihad violence will lead to discrimination against Muslims and even violent attacks against innocent Muslims. This is an increasingly common argument among Western Leftists as well: criticism of them supposedly leads to their getting “death threats,” thus such criticism must be curtailed. There is actually no necessary connection between criticism of anyone or anything and violence against innocent people, and if this argument is accepted, no one will be able logically to criticize anything. Of course, this is not a logical argument. The outcome people such as Mohamed Azam Mohamed Adil and his ilk want is that criticism of Islam will be forbidden, while they themselves will be free to criticize anything they want.

“Curtailing absolute freedom crucial in combating Islamophobia,” by Mohamed Azam Mohamed Adil, New Straits Times, March 6, 2023:

THE world has once again witnessed an extreme act of Islamophobia when Rasmus Paludan, a right-wing politician, burnt Quran at a recent rally in Stockholm. Such an act has caused outrage, especially from the Muslim world, as it is an unacceptable act of dishonouring the Muslim holy book.

The provocative act, carried out in front of the Turkish Embassy, proves that hatred towards Islam, or Islamophobia, continues to run thick in Europe.

This is not the first time such a prejudicial act against Islam and Muslims in the West has happened under the guise of “absolute freedom”.

In reality, such crimes are manifestations of Islamophobia. Islamophobia is defined as an irrational fear and hostility towards Islam and Muslims that can lead to hate speech and social and political prejudice.

It can be used to justify policies such as mass surveillance of certain groups, imprisonment and loss of rights. Without correcting these negative perceptions, it can influence the domestic and foreign policies of Western countries.

Islamophobia began taking root in the Western discourse in The Middle Ages when negative stereotypes about Muslims helped build popular support during the Crusades. The false perception of Muslims as uncivilised and violent also contributed to justifying European colonial domination over Muslim countries.

The term “Orientalism”, coined by renowned American sociologist Edward Said, best describes the negative stereotyped attitudes toward Muslims and other colonised peoples.

On the other hand, the term “Islamophobia” was popularised in a 1997 report published by the Runnymede Trust, a British think tank concerned with racial and ethnic discrimination.

Islamophobia, like anti-Semitism, anti-Black racism, and prejudice towards “outsiders”, is often rationalised in order to propagate discrimination driven by the interests of Western political actors. Islamophobia is deeply ingrained in the minds of Westerners. They believe that Islam and Muslims advocate violence….

Terrorism claims are exploited to legitimise the monitoring of Muslims and, under certain circumstances, they are used to justify acts of war against a group of Muslims and Muslim states….

In the effort to achieve religious and national harmony, the West must reassess the notion of absolute freedom of expression that is currently practised. Hate speech and behaviour towards any religion, especially towards Islam and Muslims, must be stopped by strengthening ant-hate speech laws.

Similarly, blasphemy laws should apply to all religions rather than only Christianity, as it does in the United Kingdom. The recent act of burning the Quran in Sweden clearly shows contempt for the religion of Islam and should be prosecuted as blasphemy.

Without equitable response by Western governments, Islamophobia will fester, leading to acts of violence by various parties. Let us all work together to prevent social unrest and extreme actions by a few Muslims against the law and humanity, as occurred in 2001 (9/11) and the 2005 London Bombings.

Western governments must campaign for and educate the masses through programmes and activities on various platforms, either formally or informally, by promoting Islam as a religion of peace and rejecting violence.

This effort was once made in a special Fulbright Award programme – Direct Access to the Muslim World after 9/11 – where many speakers from Muslim countries were invited to the United States to educate Americans who were still misled and had negative perceptions about Islam.


Opposition to Iranian Regime is Even More Powerful This Time

More Iranians than ever - at home and abroad - call for regime change.



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Islamic Republic of Iran now appears to be a threshold nuclear power. It has, according to the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors, moved its enriched uranium to an 84% level of purity. Inspectors detected enriched uranium particles up to 84%, and the IAEA has not denied the report. The IAEA, still reluctant to openly feud with Iran, issued a statement saying “that the IAEA is discussing with Iran the results of recent verification activities.” An 84% uranium level is a fraction away from the 90% level needed to produce weapons-grade material, and Iran could easily use the material to produce an atomic bomb.

On the domestic scene however, the oppressive Ayatollah’s regime in Tehran is facing a more unified and resolute opposition seeking a regime change. Iranians in the diaspora have organized themselves in support of the Iranian uprising in Iran. In Brussels, Munich, and Rome, Iranian anti-Ayatollah regime leaders have raised the banner of freedom this month. In Rome, on February 21, 2023, at the Italian National Senate, a rally was held titled “Women, Freedom, and Human Rights in Iran.” The speakers included Masih Alinejad, an Iranian Women’s Rights campaigner who is a major anti-regime voice. Dr. Hamed Esmaeilion, spokesman of the Association of Families of Flight PS752 downed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), was another speaker along with Italian politicians.

For a long time now, the mullahs’ regime in Tehran have lampooned the opposition as weak and divided, and to a large extent they were right. But since the murder last year of the young Kurdish woman, Mahsa Amini, the Iranian diaspora has galvanized in support of bringing down the regime. Considering what is happening on the streets of both Iran, and in European cities, Iranians of all ages, with different political persuasions, gender, economic class, religion, and ethnicity, have come together and risen up in unison in virtually all regions of Iran and abroad to topple the hated mullah regime.

The increasing cohesion of the Iranian resistance and its resilience while facing beatings, shootings, torture, and rape by the Ayatollah Khamenei’s regime, has inspired ordinary diaspora Iranians to come together week after week to protest in cities across the globe. World luminaries have joined them, voicing support for the just struggle of the Iranian people against the brutality of the Islamic Republic.

Reza Pahlavi, eldest son of the former Shah of Iran, is touring Europe to garner support for the Iranian people’s revolution. He told the British Guardian newspaper that right now is a “do-or-die” moment for the revolution, requiring western governments to give full, active support or risk seeing the revolutionary movement’s impact wane. Pahlavi pointed out that if the West imposed maximum pressure, the IRGC and some reformist politicians would desert the regime. The Islamic republic is now openly assisting Russia in its war against Ukraine and is now being part of the new “axis of evil,” along with Russia and China. It is crucial for basic human rights and long-term world peace that the West act favorably upon the request of the Iranian masses for support in their efforts to bring about regime change.

Pahlavi asserted that, “The reason the revolution is continuing is because everybody understands this is do-or-die. Iranians are calling for ‘death to the dictator.’ They are getting shot in the eyes and, if not, imprisoned or tortured or executed, and they are still standing there. The world needs to respond and be on their side.“

In January (2023), the European Union (EU) foreign ministers imposed sanctions on more than 30 Iranian officials and organizations including units of the powerful IRGC, blaming them for the brutal crackdown on protesters and other human rights abuses. However, they stopped short of denouncing the IRGC as a terrorist organization. Both the US and the UK also leveled new sanctions on Iran.

This time, it is not only the Sunni-Muslim minorities – the Kurds, Baluchis, and Ahwazi Arabs, who are confronting the regime. Ordinary Shiite-Muslim ethnic Persians, and Azeris (ironically Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei is of Azeri origin) have joined in, and it is not only students that carry the banner of change but ordinary Iranians as well.

In 2009, millions of Iranians came out to the streets to protest election fraud and demand justice. It could have been the trigger to a regime change. The protesters shouted, “Obama are you with them or with us?” yet President Obama remained obviously silent, preferring to appease the Ayatollahs, and hoping to “reform their behavior.” He subsequently hailed the Iran nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, JCPOA) as one of his greatest foreign policy achievements. The JCPOA was a 10-year deal touted as preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Now, in retrospect, it appears hollow and short sighted.

The Iranian diaspora has solidified, with its diverse leadership that includes the likes of Reza Pahlavi, the late Shah’s son, who is calling for a secular democracy in Iran and a non-violent revolution. There is the voice of Shirin Ebadi, a former judge, and a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, who believes that revolution is the only way. Women’s rights activist Masih Alinejad continues to defy the Ayatollahs through coordinated acts of civil disobedience as do the actresses Nazanin Boniadi and Golshifteh Farahani, and Iran’s soccer star Ali Amini. Boniadi spoke out against the oppression of women in Iran at the 2023 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Farahani was quoted by the New York Times as saying that Iranians cry for freedom won’t be silenced.

The current protest movement, unlike the 2009 protests and strikes, is being inspired and led by women. It has united Iranians across the board in what has turned out to be the most serious threat the Ayatollah’s regime has faced to date. The protest movement has survived weeks of internet outages and violent crackdowns by the regime. The chants, “women, life, and freedom” continues despite massive arrests, torture, rapes, and deaths, at the hands of IRGC goons and other regime helpers.

A former Iranian detainee had this to say. “They torture us, and they are lying to the world, to the international community…Iranians want freedom,” adding, “We don’t want dictatorship. We want to connect with the world.”

The nuclear negotiations in Vienna have reached a pathetic end, and Iran’s gross violations of the terms set by the JCPOA are clearly undeniable. It is therefore now incumbent upon the Western powers to seriously consider supporting Iranian pleas for regime change. To provide massive aid to the Iranian protesters challenging the regime. Simultaneously, the US and its European allies should consider activating the military option against Iran’s nuclear facilities. We just don’t want to believe the Iranian leadership’s stated threats against the US, the West, and our Middle East friends, including serious Iranian plans to annihilate Israel.

DHS Agency Involved In ‘Domestic Censorship Activities’

Yet ANOTHER Biden Regime Agency Worked to Censor Dissenting Views

Yet ANOTHER Biden Regime Agency Worked to Censor Dissenting Views



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Biden regime has made it clear in all kinds of ways that it hates the freedom of speech, political dissent, and the idea of loyal political opposition. It is doing all it can to stamp out these things, but it has to tread carefully in doing so so that as few patriots as possible catch on to what is going on and move to stop it. Nevertheless, as The Sumter Gambit: How the Left is Trying to Foment a Civil War demonstrates, the Left’s war against Constitutional values is real and ongoing. On Tuesday came new evidence of Biden’s handlers’ assault on our most fundamental freedom.

Back in August 2022, I wrote an article entitled “The Disinformation Governance Board Is Now Officially Dead, But the Enemies of Free Speech Will Keep Trying,” and here we are already. Fox News reported that “a federal agency in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that’s been scrutinized for what critics argue is suppression of dissenting political views under the guise of combating disinformation now appears to be ‘burying’ evidence of its alleged censorship, experts and watchdog groups say.” Well, knock me over with a feather.

Fox explains that the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) “has come under fire for working with Big Tech companies to flag and take down social media posts related to elections, COVID vaccines, and a range of other issues that were deemed mis-, dis-, and misinformation (MDM).” This is the Orwellian line that the contemporary Left has chosen in order to dress up its efforts to crush dissent and allow only one point of view to be heard with an aura of respectability. It’s all about “security,” you see, and protecting you from “misinformation,” “disinformation,” and yet another newly coined word, “misinformation.” These lovable lugs just want you to get the pure, unadulterated truth, as curated by them.

Most Americans can see through this and understand, especially after the long drama of Hunter Biden’s laptop, that what the Left calls “misinformation” and “disinformation” is more often and not true information that the party of lies and deceit doesn’t want you to know. Most Americans also understand that the First Amendment’s protection of the freedom of speech extends even to, and in fact especially to, what those in power want you to think is “disinformation” but is actually made up of facts that contradict their narrative. Consequently, the authoritarians have to hide their evil agenda as much as they possibly can; Americans don’t like the censorship of legitimate opinion, and the censors are well aware of that.

As a result, Fox reports, “now it appears the agency may be concealing its efforts to monitor domestic content posted by regular Americans and focusing exclusively on its campaign to combat foreign actors in what some observers say is a move designed to hide government overreach.” Because when Americans find out about government overreach, they often move to stop it, and we can’t have that. Fox notes that “CISA’s current webpage on its MDM mission discusses ‘foreign influence operations and disinformation … targeting election infrastructure’ and makes no mention of domestic activity.” Reassuring? No. This page has only been up for a few weeks.

The old CISA webpage that it replaced speaks of “foreign and domestic threat actors [using] MDM campaigns to cause chaos, confusion, and division” and describes them as “malign.” Fox states that “the page also describes CISA’s mission in much broader terms as working ‘in close coordination with interagency and private sector partners, social media companies, academia, and international partners on a variety of projects to build resilience against malicious information activities.’”

CISA offers a classic example of mission creep. It was “originally created to protect the nation’s ‘cyber and physical infrastructure,’ including domestic websites from foreign hackers.” But its mission “quickly morphed and broadened to countering ‘disinformation campaigns and efforts that appear in social media,’ according to an August 2022 DHS Office of Inspector General report.” According to a draft DHS report, it was set to combat “inaccurate information” on topics such as “the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, racial justice, U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the nature of U.S. support to Ukraine.”

We know how this game is played now. We know that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “inaccurate information” and was even certified as “Russian disinformation” in a slickly-worded, plausible deniability-enabling statement that was signed by fifty of the nation’s top intelligence officials. When Leftist officials start talking about “inaccurate information,” they mean dissent from their agenda. CISA has been caught and, like the Disinformation Governance Board, should be shut down. But we would need a patriotic administration for that.

America 2023 Is Not Quite Germany 1930s… Yet

America 2023 Is Not Quite Germany 1930s... Yet

By Philip Carl Salzman

Leftists specialize in pejorative labeling of anyone who disagrees with them, calling them racist, sexist, homophobe, transphobe, Islamophobe, deplorable, etc. But they save their ultimate insults for their most important targets; they are labeled “fascists,” “Nazis,” and “literally Hitler.” These childish insults take the place of serious debate, of presenting arguments substantiated by evidence, and of countering disagreements with the same. Here, the argument will be attempted and the labeling rejected.

Any resemblance between America in 2023 and Germany in the 1930s is purely coincidental. Yet there are some worrisome resemblances.

As early as 1933, the formal exclusion of Jews was initiated with Chancellor Hitler’s declaration of a national boycott of Jewish businesses. The “Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service” prohibited “non-Aryans” from serving in the legal profession or civil service and from teaching in secondary schools and universities. On May 10, 1933, there was a nationwide book burning of “un-German” books, including those by Jewish authors.

Successful and prosperous Jews were in this way cut off from their professions and from commerce. Jews who had served in the military or were tenured in the civil service and in teaching positions lost the professions and statuses that they had earned. Hitherto successful businesses and stores found themselves without most of their customers, and many failed.

The Nuremberg exclusion laws (see also here) passed by the Nazi-dominated Reichstag in 1935 included the “Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour,” which forbade marriage and extra-marital intercourse between Germans and Jews, and the “Reich Citizenship Law” declaring that only those of German blood could be citizens of the Reich, others being “enemies of the race-based state” without civil rights, including Jews and Romanis, with blacks also excluded from citizen rights.

Assimilated Jews, including those who had converted to Christianity and those who had married Germans, found themselves cut off from their German friends, in-laws, and even spouses. They were excluded from their own lives.

These Nazi laws were based on a race policy that distinguished between the German pure master race and the inferior races of non-Germans, mainly Jews but also gypsies and blacks, a theory that also put non-German foreigners, such as Poles, into alleged subordinate racial positions as members of inferior races.

American race theories are quite different from Nazi ones. Both in the U.S. and Canada, races are distinguished not by purity, but by virtue. Evil races are oppressors, privileged races, and virtuous races are oppressed, victimized “marginalized and underserved” minorities, a general category that includes “victims” of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and Islamophobia, and the discrimination that results from these.

The “evil” race in America is whites, the statistical majority in both countries. (Remarkably, successful minorities such as Asians and Jews are classed with whites as blameworthy “white adjacent” or “hyper-white,” for the unforgivable sin of being successful.) Males are the “evil” sex; heterosexuals are the “evil” sexuality; Christians and Jews are the “evil” religion; the able-bodied are also “evil oppressors.” BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color), LGBTQ2S++ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, queer, two-spirit, plus many other varieties of minority preferences), the disabled, and Muslims are all alleged to be “marginalized and underserved” victims of bigotry and discrimination.

Based on this American racial theory, “social justice” is now defined as the implementation of “diversity, equity, and inclusion.” But the initiatives for this did not come from the U.S. Congress or the Canadian Parliament. The people’s elected representatives had no say in this imposition. Rather, the postmodern holy trinity of “diversity, equity, and inclusion” has been imposed by executive order in both the U.S. and Canada.

In Canada, the Liberal government launched 2019 a new program to which all universities, professional academic organizations, and funding agencies were expected to commit. It is called “Dimensions: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.” According to the government of Canada, “Dimensions aims to address systemic barriers, particularly those experienced by members of underrepresented or disadvantaged groups, including, but not limited to, women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minority/racialized groups, and members of LGBTQ2+ communities.” A “Charter” for “Dimensions” was distributed to all presidents of all post-secondary educational institutions, disciplinary organizations, and funding agencies for endorsement. The government plan is that “Institutions that endorse the Dimensions charter commit to embedding EDI principles in their policies, practices, action plans and culture.”

In the U.S., President Biden’s Executive Order 13985 “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government” (see White House briefing here) states that:

It is therefore the policy of my Administration that the Federal Government should pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality. Affirmatively advancing equity, civil rights, racial justice, and equal opportunity is the responsibility of the whole of our Government. Because advancing equity requires a systematic approach to embedding fairness in decision-making processes, executive departments and agencies (agencies) must recognize and work to redress inequities in their policies and programs that serve as barriers to equal opportunity.

The background is Biden’s assertion that the U.S. is “systemically racist.” The stated intention is for DEI to correct that.

These top-down initiatives could not have been more successful. The targeted recipients throughout government, education, media, industry, medicine, and law took up DEI with the enthusiasm of “reborn” new converts. DEI requirements were imposed on every nook and cranny of organizational existence. But enforcement of DEI was not left to the workers, soldiers, teachers, nurses, clerks, and other front-line workers. No, across America thousands of DEI bureaucrats were hired, many at top salaries, to publicize and enforce DEI. These bureaucrats, acting as political commissars, were often relentless in imposing DEI and crushing dissent. These bureaucrats are the new executive elite of America.

So what does DEI turn out to be in practice? Let us take each term in turn.

Diversity, you might think, means bringing in everyone. Wrong. Diversity means bringing in a maximum number of people with victim credentials, that is, BIPOC, LGBTQ2S++, females, the disabled, and Muslims. Others — whites, especially white males, “hyper-white” Jews, “white adjacent” Asians, the able-bodied, and Christians — are deemed “not diverse” and are not selected; that is, they are mostly excluded, in many cases explicitly.

McGill University, ranked the number one medical university in Canada, celebrates its DEI success. In an article titled “McGill sees 400% increase in incoming Black medical students thanks to inclusivity programs,” McGill reports that “Thanks to initiatives such as the McGill Black Candidate Pathway and the Community of Support Program whose goal is to increase the number of Black students within medicine, McGill’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences saw a 400% increase in the number of incoming Black medical students in the Fall of 2022, with 24 Black students among the incoming group of 200 new medical students.”

So among the medical admittees, 12% were black, while blacks are only 4.3% of the Canadian population, an overrepresentation of some 250%. Note that McGill does not brag about admitting the best students ever; rather, they brag about diversity admittees. The question of how heavily academic merit weighed in admissions is not stated. Should Canada have diverse doctors or excellent doctors?

In other cases of student admission or hiring of professors or administrative staff, not only are minority candidates encouraged, but “non-diverse” members of the majority or members of successful minorities are also explicitly excluded. Thanks to the ongoing vigilance of the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship, here are a few current examples, which can stand for thousands more (emphasis added):

  • Nova Scotia College of Art and Design “NSCAD University is in Mi’kma’ki, on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq Nation. NSCAD University has committed to reconciliation and to establishing respectful ongoing relationships with Indigenous peoples.

  • Simon Fraser Department of History, Assistant Professor in History of Black Americas — 11 February 2023 The Department of History in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Simon Fraser University, respectfully acknowledges the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), q̓íc̓əy̓(Katzie), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), qiqéyt (Qayqayt), qʼʷa:n̓ƛʼən̓ (Kwantlen), Səmyámə (Semiahmoo), and sc̓əwaθən (Tsawwassen) Peoples, on whose ancestral, traditional, and unceded territories Simon Fraser University’s three campuses stand.

  • Wilfrid Laurier University, Faculty of Science, Department of Psychology, Canada Research Chair (SSHRC) Tier 2 in Psychology of Just, Inclusive, and Sustainable Futures (Internal) — The Department of Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (SSHRC) in Psychology of Just, Inclusive, and Sustainable Futures. In alignment with the goals of the Department of Psychology and the CRC Program’s equity target goals, this position is only open to candidates who identify as a member of a racialized group.
  • Acadia University, The Jodrey School of Computer Science invites applications from candidates for one of three tenure-track positions commencing on 1 July 2023. We invite applications for the following faculty positions from women, people with disabilities, and Black, Mi’kmaq, and Indigenous Canadians.

The result is that “diverse” minorities are overrepresented, as in the McGill Faculty of Medicine case mentioned above. As well, females now make up 60% of Canadian university students, while males are 40%. This is a substantial overrepresentation of female students, yet they still are the priority for admissions and hiring, as in the Acadia ad above. A further example is the article, “Celebrating McGill’s women of STEM,” which takes great exception to the fact that there is one corner of the university not dominated by females. Among American university administrations, females also are in control, with 66% of all administrative staff being female, and 75% of Ivy League university presidents being female.

Between the time of systemic discrimination against the Jews through the 1920s, when Harvard and McGill had quotas to limit the number of Jews, and the end of the 20th century, Jews were high achievers in academia. By the mid-20th century, Jews were 21% of the professoriate. With the establishment of President Johnson’s reformulated affirmative action for non-Jewish minorities and the increasing redefinition of “social justice,” Jews were decreasingly accepted in higher education and the professoriate so that by 2020, only 4% of the professoriate were Jews. Being on the wrong side of “diversity” has undermined the Jews’ position in society.

What does this preferential racial, gender, and sexuality policy say to Canadians and Americans? It says that you as an individual do not matter. We don’t care about your accomplishments, achievements, merit, or potential; we only care about your race, sex, sexuality, and disability. It says to heterosexual Ukrainian Canadian males, able Korean Canadian males, able Italian Canadian males, able Quebecois, able South Asian Canadian males, able Latin American males, able Finnish Canadian males, Chinese American heterosexual males, Iranian American heterosexual males, Scottish American males, Swedish American males, Polish American males, Thai American males, Japanese American males, Welsh American males, Jewish American males, and so many more, that all of you can be freely disregarded.

“Diversity” not only doesn’t mean diversity of all people, but it also does not mean diversity of thought. The commitment to DEI is that of a religious nature, a set of truths that may not be questioned. Any dissent is deemed to be heresy, and the heretic is turned over to the DEI officers who enforce it in the spirit of the Office of the Holy Inquisition. A recent example of many cancelations is the firing of Frances Widdowson from Mount Royal University for her scholarly analyses of Canadian indigenous native history and government policy. Nor was she allowed to speak about her views and experiences at Lethbridge University. This is a remarkable turn for institutions that were, during past liberal modernity, committed to diversity of view, freedom of exchange of ideas, and argument and evidence as the bases for truth.

Equity means equal outcomes for all census categories of people, as distinct from equality of opportunity. In the DEI playbook, members of different categories must have the same results — whether test results, income, percentage of positions, or awards — or else something is deemed to be wrong. Any statistical disparity between members of different categories is taken as proof positive of racial, sexual, homophobic, transphobic, or Islamophobic discrimination. This, in my opinion, is the worst and least-substantiated sociological theory in the 21st century but the most fervently held by DEI converts.

An example of “equity” is the withholding of National Merit Awards from students at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Virginia. The principal, who wanted to cancel the competitive admission procedure to increase “diversity,” was perhaps offended that so many of the award winners were Asian Americans rather than other minorities. So students were not informed of their success and thus could not submit the result for college admissions and scholarship applications. According to the author, “the decision to withhold the information from parents and inform the students in a low-key way was intentional. ‘We want to recognize students for who they are as individuals, not focus on their achievements,’ he told her, claiming that he and the principal didn’t want to ‘hurt’ the feelings of students who didn’t get the award.” The attitude of the school’s administrators reflects the school district’s new strategy of “equal outcomes for every student, without exception.”

“Inclusion” is not about including people or ideas but about making minorities feel comfortable by not allowing any opinions that might upset them to be spoken or written. Inclusion is about excluding any views that might not be welcome for the increasingly sensitive minorities. Thus its main goal is the suppression of free speech and opinion. It is thus quite in accord with the illiberalism of “diversity” and “equity.”

The Germans in the 1930s — and keep in mind that, at the turn of the 20th century, Germany was the most advanced society in the world — thought that they were doing good and important work in discriminating on the basis of race. They thought they were guaranteeing the purity of their race and the honor of their country. Today, the American elite thinks they are doing good work in discriminating on the basis of race, sex, sexuality, disability, and religion. They think that they are advancing “social justice.” Perhaps they never heard the saying, “Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

Discriminating on the basis of race and other immutable characteristics is never good; it is always illiberal and always disregards the dignity and rights of individual persons. Such means as discrimination never justify the ends because these means always destroy the ends hoped for. America has replaced historical injustices with new injustices, and those in the future will look back at this with shame.


Readin’, ‘Ritin, and Rainbow Madness!

Drag queen forces 11-year-old to leave class for denying 73 genders.



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The only good aspect of this revolting story is that the government of the Isle of Man, a sparsely populated Crown Dependency of the United Kingdom that will soon be having to change its name (Isle of Folx? Isle of Women, Womyn, and Oppressors? Isle of LGBTQ+?) has actually moved to stop this madness, at least to a limited extent. Fox News reported Wednesday that Isle of Man (sorry!) authorities have “suspended sex education at schools after a drag queen allegedly forced a student to leave class for refuting the concept of 73 genders.” It’s just great that they have forced the gears of the grooming machine to grind to a halt, at least for the moment, but how did it get this far? And what is being done to change the attitudes and policies that led to this happening in the first place?

In a telling indication of how important it is for ordinary citizens to become activists in this time of deep societal and cultural crisis all over the West, the Isle of [Redacted] government didn’t even act until parents started to complain. The ghastly incident took place at Queen Elizabeth II High School, and when parents heard about it, they began a petition drive. Among the statements in the petition was this: “We consider the attendance of a ‘drag queen’ in class and alienating students clearly confused about the information discussed during this session wholly inappropriate.”

You can say that again, Isle of Manners. The petition called for the school’s head teacher, Charlotte Clarke, to begin an “immediate investigation” not just into the drag queen incident, but into the whole rancid curriculum that led to the drag queen being invited to the school in the first place. Over 500 people signed.

Eliza Cox, the vice-chairman of Isle of Man’s Marown Parish, revealed the drag queen incident at Queen Elizabeth II High. Cox recounted that the drag queen was teaching children as young as eleven years old, and informing them that there are not two, but 73 genders. According to Fox News, “one student responded that there were only two genders, which prompted the drag queen to say, ‘you’ve upset me,’ and ask the student to leave the class.” Remember the days when children were told to leave class for talking excessively, not paying attention to the lesson, cheating on tests, and the like? Now you get sent out of class for not bowing to the dominant Leftist insanity.

Cox also “alleged that one group of students was taught how to perform anal and oral sex. Another group was shown how skin grafts are taken from a patient’s arm to create an artificial penis for a transgender man.” Understandably, after all this, according to Cox, some of the kids at Queen Elizabeth II High were “too ‘traumatized’ to talk with their parents about what transpired.” Who wouldn’t be?

And so finally, the local government stepped in: “The minister for education on The Isle of Man, Julie Edge, has said the Department of Education, Sports, and Culture has made the ‘decision to pause all relationships and sex education (RSE) delivery across primary and secondary schools and will be unable to comment further until the facts have been established.’” That’s “pause,” not “stop.” Is the Isle of Man’s government likely to challenge the entire sexual orthodoxy of the contemporary Left? Unlikely in the extreme. Will the drag queen be back once the heat is off and the establishment media has gone on to the next story? It could happen.

QE2 High’s Clarke has now commented, laconically: “Having viewed a video, which is currently circulating on social media relating to the school’s RSE curriculum and its delivery, we are concerned that there could be a number of inaccuracies with the information being shared.” No kidding, really? What was your first clue? In response to seeing the gender madness being taught to her students, Clarke has punted and shifted responsibility: “Given the concerns being raised, and in order to be open and transparent, we requested an independent review into the situation. As such I am happy to take part in the external investigation which is being deployed by the Department of Education, Sport, and Culture and would encourage our community to avoid speculation at this time.”

Terrific. But is the Department of Education, Sport, and Culture any more likely to buck the Left than the Isle of Man’s government? No. And so the drag queens will almost certainly keep their elementary school gigs. The grooming, at least for the foreseeable future, will almost certainly continue.
