Fresno State Condones Hate Speech

Memo to Fresno State President Joseph Castro and his university:

Your cowardly inaction regarding Professor Randa Jarrar’s spiteful tweets say more about you and your values than it does about free speech.

President Joseph Castro boogies down

As we mentioned in last week’s post about the “tolerant” Ms. Jarrar, the creative writing professor tweeted despicable comments within an hour of former First Lady Barbara Bush’s passing – then doubled down on her hate-filled vile and vitriol.

Castro admitted publicly that while Jarrar’s comments were “insensitive, inappropriate and an embarrassment to the university,” apparently they weren’t insensitive, inappropriate and embarrassing enough to do anything about them.

According to the Washington Post, the university concluded that her cruel comments did not violate any university policies and her disgraceful language was constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment.

Okay. So what if a conservative professor at Fresno State (or any publicly-funded college campus or university) posted a similar tweet upon the death of Hillary Clinton, or the passing of former First Lady Michelle Obama?

Can you imagine how Castro and the university board would interpret “free speech” under those circumstances?

Randa Jarrar – Fresno State Train Wreck

Reportedly the university’s decision was based in part on the fact that Jarrar was speaking about a public matter as an individual on her personal Twitter account. In other words, her actions weren’t representing the university and therefore, any action taken by the university would have violated her rights of free speech.

We should expect better than weasel logic from a university president.

Thousands of private companies prohibit tasteless free speech from their employees because they won’t tolerate such deplorable behavior – publicly or privately, for two reasons:

First, tasteless comments on social media by employees reflect bad on their employer. That’s bad for business. Secondly, it makes the employee look hateful and deranged – which in turn makes their employer look stupid for hiring them – which is also bad for business.

Actions and language have consequences in the real world. Safe spaces and microaggressions may be popular in the land of ivory towers, but they’re just a fairy tale in the business world.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a famous dream where Americans of all colors would be judged by the content of their character.

In the case of Fresno State and all those supporting Randa Jarrar’s contemptible rhetoric, that would be hard to do because they have no character.

Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country. For those who believe in open borders, safe spaces, and who think free speech is hate speech, move on – there’s nothing here for you to see.

Dems Announce Plan to Sue Selves

MANHATTAN, NY  Last Friday the Democrat National Committee filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging a conspiracy by the Trump campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks to sabotage nominee Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chances in favor of Donald Trump.

The complaint accused top Trump campaign officials of colluding with Russia to force Clinton to take naps, overindulge in Chardonnay and forego campaigning in key battleground states Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

“This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,” Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said.

On Monday Perez surprised Republicans again when he filed a second suit in the same Manhattan court, this one announcing the DNC’s plan to sue themselves – specifically 2016 Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

“We’d been considering this for several weeks, but the deciding factor was when Congressman Nunes (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman R-California), suggested if we really wanted to get to the bottom of Russian collusion ‘we ought to be suing ourselves,’” Perez told gathered reporters.

“Even though Nunes is a Republican, he’s better versed on the Russian collusion narrative than Democrats are – even though we helped pay for it,” Perez admitted candidly.

When asked on Sunday by ABC’s George Stephanopolous if the two lawsuits might distract Democrats from the 2018 elections, Perez calmly reached for a stick of gum.

“One of the reasons we’re winning is because people believe that we should stand up for our democracy. That’s what we’re doing in this lawsuit, George. We can walk and chew gum – see,” Perez demonstrated by walking repeatedly in a tight circle while chomping gum.

According to the court papers filed Monday, the DNC claims in their lawsuit:

• After getting the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton failed to campaign as vigorously as she should have when Russian agents surreptitiously replaced her Napa Valley wine with Molotov cocktails;

• Clinton rigged the Democratic nomination by stealing votes from primary opponent Bernie Sanders through manipulation of the super delegate process. She also was charged with bribing Sanders with a third home on Lake Champlain and a free lifetime supply of Ben and Jerry’s;

• Clinton was also charged with misappropriating millions of dollars in DNC donated funds, channeling those to her own campaign and a state-of-the-art email server that would wipe itself – with a cloth.

The Republican National Committee had no comment, although anonymous sources did confirm lots of hooting and guffawing whenever the lawsuit was mentioned.

Magoo and Clouseau To Help Mueller

On Thursday the White House announced that two-time New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani was joining the president’s legal team, along with Marty and Jane Raskin of the Florida-based law firm Raskin & Raskin.

Today Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office followed suit with a surprise announcement of its own.

Mueller spokesman Peter Carr announced two late additions to Mueller’s legal team: J. Quincy Magoo and French legal legend Jacques Clouseau.

Magoo is known as a flighty but tenacious prosecutor who has enjoyed uncanny luck throughout his storied career.

He has proven experience in maneuvering around all kinds of obstacles and his seemingly random meanderings often provide unique perspectives that have helped him ferret out details others miss.

Clouseau is a legend in his native France. He has been in professional law enforcement since the late 1960’s and has a storied reputation for his unorthodox methods.

As an inspector for the French Sûreté, his greatest notoriety occurred when he single-handedly solved a string of high profile thefts involving some of that country’s most influential and wealthiest families.

When asked why Mueller was seeking the services of the famed French law enforcement legend, Carr replied that the two met by happenstance last month when Inspector Clouseau’s water skis got entangled with Mueller’s Russian collusion fishing expedition off the coast of Seychelles.

According to Carr, Magoo was hired a week later after wandering into Mueller’s office mumbling about President Trump’s tweets and Russian caviar. Mueller took that as an omen that Magoo was perfect for his team.

Mueller said through Carr that his team was elated to welcome the legendary pair to his team.

“We are thrilled to have Quincy and Jacques join us in this endeavor,” Mueller said. “We’re confident their unique experience will help us connect the dots in proving Trump’s Russian collusion once and for all.”

Jarrar is Liberal Tolerance Personified

Why do conservatives diss liberal feel good concepts like diversity and inclusion? Look no further than California college professor Randa Jarrar.

Jarrar is the Fresno State English professor that suddenly took a leave of absence on Wednesday after vilifying former First Lady Barbara Bush on Twitter – within an hour of her passing.

That doesn’t seem very inclusive.

Just one of many open-minded, tolerant members of academia, Jarrar tweeted this about Mrs. Bush’s death: “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F**k outta here with your nice words.”

A professor of creative writing, Jarrar flexed her writing chops with a second tweet: “PSA: either you are against these pieces of s— and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. That’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have. byyyeeeeeee.”

What a sweetheart, huh? Hard to believe she’s still single.

She also tweeted: “All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W. Bush is probably really sad right now.”

Before switching her Twitter account to private after the ensuing social media tsunami, she justified her hateful messages by claiming that now others would know “what it’s like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion.”

Seems like she’s mistaking “girth” for “clout” – but I digress.

Jarrar, whose name sounds like the Star Wars villain Jabba the Hut, was born in Chicago to Egyptian and Palestinian parents but grew up in Kuwait and Egypt in a strict Muslim household.

“The United States has afforded her and her family everything. I don’t understand where this hatred comes from,” said ex-husband Orie Cipollaro.

Here’s a clue: Cipollaro, who married his poison pen dream boat when she was age 18, remembers his wife calling herself the smartest person in the room.

Bet he kicks himself every day for letting her get away after just two years of marital bliss.

Jarrar further tweaked her Twitter critics by listing a mental health crisis hotline as her personal number, causing concerns that her thoughtless prank could clog the hotline.

She also taunted her online critics when they called for her ouster: “I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired. I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say.”

Based on media reports, here’s hoping her heartless comments will soon be nothing more than a distant memory that she’ll blame on American intolerance and racism – if there’s still anyone wanting to hear what she has to say.

Trump Derangement Syndrome & STDs

It’s no secret that millions of impassioned Americans who share a vehement dislike of President Trump suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS.

Since November 2016, TDS has been prevalent throughout several populous blue states, reaching crisis levels in cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

For readers who have witnessed these anti-Trump fits on TV or online, it’s apparent that if left untreated, anti-Trumpers often exhibit a wide range of disturbing behaviors.

According to new research at the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), TDS bears a consensual relationship to another group of well known diseases that spread rapidly on careless contact: specifically, sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs.

Like STDs, TDS can result in fever, abdominal pain, ulcers, a burning discomfort and swollen glands – ostensibly from howling at the moon.

While America’s opioid crisis has garnered much of the nation’s attention and resources, thousands of TDS sufferers are experiencing delusions of a Trump impeachment, a time continuum disorder with an imagined return to Obama’s failed social and economic policies, and Hillary assuming her fantasy role as America’s first female president.

Fortunately, CDC researchers believe they have a cure for those suffering from TDS – that is, if they are willing to abandon their safe spaces, accept safety locks on their microaggression triggers and refrain from acting out on dark fantasies involving the president.

“We found that daily doses of Fox News twice daily, along with regular readings of conservative columnists like Kurt Schlichter and Ann Coulter, and one-hour of listening to Rush Limbaugh every day, significantly helps dull the pain and burning of TDS,” said CDC lead researcher Seymour Winning.

“Over half of our test subjects even reported experiencing fewer delusions that the world is ending and a newfound appreciation for the Bill of Rights and the Constitution,” Winning added.

Man Banned for Female Empathy

MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE, MASSACHUSETTS

If gender really is a social construct and being non-binary is optional, why would a school known for celebrating its gender neutral diversity ban a man with a strong empathy towards women?

Lindsey Mack chose to apply at Mount Holyoke College because of the school’s reputation as the most inclusive women’s school in the country.

Sadly, xe has learned that is not the case.  According to their website, Mount Holyoke accepts:

  • Biologically born female; identifies as a woman
  • Biologically born female; identifies as a man
  • Biologically born female; identifies as other/they/ze
  • Biologically born female; does not identify as either woman or man
  • Biologically born male; identifies as woman
  • Biologically born male; identifies as other/they/ze and when “other/they” identity includes woman
  • Biologically born with both male and female anatomy (Intersex); identifies as a woman

Mount Holyoke does not accept biologically born males identifying as men, but Lindsey learned there is one other category Mount Holyoke does not accept: men brimming with toxic masculinity and enough testosterone to form a special forces unit – by themselves – but who empathize with women.

Apparently the whole gender is a social construct theory only applies to females, females who want to be male and female wannabes.

“What the college doesn’t understand is I grew up with seven sisters and one bathroom for all of us. That experience gave me a unique perspective and understanding of women that a lot of dudes don’t have, I’ll tell you,” Lindsey said.

On Lindsey’s application form xe dotted all the “i’s” and crossed all the “t”s – or in this instance would that be dotted the “t’s” and crossed the “i’s? 

Whatever, Lindsey ran the non-conformist gender gauntlet successfully and was accepted until xe arrived on campus.

It was then that xyr lifelong dream of attending a women’s college met the brick wall of prejudice and bigotry.  In the short time it took for xyr to saunter the campus and ask directions to the administration office, multiple cases of swooning began.

The Mount Holyoke nurse’s office treated 16 cases of swooning during Lindsey’s brief visit, including Mount Holyoke’s Dean of Students and an embarrassed Admissions Director who reportedly gasped in awe when Lindsey strode purposefully into her office.

Mount Holyoke says on its website:

“Diversity and inclusion is about understanding our multiple identities through the lens of social justice education, ally development, and identity development.”

Unfortunately Lindsey Mack’s disappointing experience proved an exception to the school’s gender diversity rules. Men who respect women and relate to them are not allowed – unless they are gay or transsexual.

God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness

Nike’s marketing slogan “Just Do It” has made that company a fortune selling shoes that cost a few dollars to make but routinely sell for ten times that.

With apologies to Nike, after seeing God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, I’m encouraging everyone I know to “Just See It.”

This is the third installment in the GND franchise, and in my thinking the best so far.  The excellent screenplay by Michael Mason plays as if it was lifted from the day’s headlines.

A random act of vandalism in the form of a tossed brick through the basement window of a historic church sets off a gas leak.  That leak serves as the spark in a burst of spiritual enlightenment that involves the entire college community.

Historic St. James church is pastored by Pastor Dave (David A.R. White), an amiable shaggy haired pastor who grew up with his now estranged brother Pearce (John Corbett) in the church pastored by their late father.  Tragedy and anger ensue when Jude, a newly appointed co-minister from Ghana (Benjamin A. Onyango) is accidentally killed in the course of events.

David A.R. White plays Pastor Dave

The contemporary story line occurs when Hadleigh University, on whose campus the St. James church is located, rebuffs the church’s plans to rebuild in favor of building a new student union building on the site of the burned church.

College administrators and students argue that the church isn’t relevant in today’s culture.

That contentious decision sets the stage for battles on multiple fronts as Pastor Dave and his athiest brother Pearce work together to rally public support for rebuilding the church via social media, TV interviews and newspaper coverage.

One of the movie’s strengths is the multiple sub-story lines.  For example:

*Pastor Dave and Pearce are estranged for unknown reasons initially but join together to fight for the legal right to rebuild the church;

*How a young female college student (Jennifer Taylor) questioning her faith unwittingly sets off the spark that lays bare the church vs state issue and pits the college against the local churchgoing community;

*Why Pastor Dave and his friend and fellow Christian, the school chancellor (Ted McGinley), find themselves at odds during the controversy and even resort to fisticuffs;

*Why Pearce lost his faith in law school and became estranged from his family, essentially leaving his younger brother to care for the pair’s parents;

*Why a gifted and promising law student (Shane Harper) told Pearce he abandoned pursuing law to serve as St. James youth minister. Spoiler alert: Because “Jesus was the ultimate social justice warrior”;

*The moving backstory of how the college student who threw the brick through the church window (Mike C. Manning) lost his faith and resented his girlfriend’s struggle in searching for hers;

*How Pastor Dave overcame struggling with his own faith and anger after Jude’s death to help bring the college and community back from the brink of animosity and help “stop the shouting.”

GND3 emphasizes that listening to others is better than shouting slogans, seeking understanding is better than stoking strife, and love always triumphs over hate.

Most importantly, the movie shows that if we check our egos and emotional baggage at the door, and treat others as we wish to be treated, it is then that God works through us and helps fulfill His purpose.

McCabes’ Launching ‘Go Fund Us’ 2

Fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and wife Jill were overwhelmed by the generosity of Americans recently contributing to his legal defense through the popular Go Fund Me program.

“The support we received in such a short period was simply overwhelming,” McCabe told a recent throng of reporters.  “Jill and I were stunned and extraordinarily grateful for the outpouring of support.”

McCabe’s believed net worth: $4 million

McCabe was terminated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on March 16th based on recommendations from the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and current FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The decision to dismiss McCabe was based on investigators’ belief that he lied on at least four separate occasions to investigators and former FBI Director James Comey.

McCabe’s Barnum & Bailey promotional team launched a Go Fund Me page March 29 with the goal of raising $150,000 for his upcoming legal defense needs.  To the astonishment of many, McCabe’s group raised $551,186 in just four days from 13,169 different people.

“I never imagined that I would need to rely on this type of assistance,” he said, wiping a tear from his eye.

Escorted out of FBI headquarters January 29

The grateful McCabe’s were so pleased at the charity and goodwill of the American people they have announced another opportunity to contribute to their family’s coffers, but this fundraiser comes with a playful twist.

“We thought it would be fun to allow contributors a choice as to where their donations go,” said Dr. Jill McCabe, a pediatrician, hospital administrator and medical director for three departments at Inova Loudoun Hospital in Leesburg, Virginia.

Choices include: college tuition and housing for the McCabes’ kids, remodeling the kitchen in their $715,000 home and adding new appliances, or a one-way ticket to a tropical country with no extradition treaty with the U.S.

“Hopefully our efforts, fueled by this incredible support, will encourage others to stand up for themselves, and the truth, as well,” McCabe said.

Whole Hogg on Bridging Differences

Parkland Florida high school senior anti-gun provocateur David Hogg has reached agreement with quick-on-the-draw Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham on a way to settle their recent political differences: a robust round of two-handed bridge.

In two-handed bridge the competitors play with imaginary partners.  Hogg says his imaginary partner will be Saul Alinsky, while Ingraham announced hers will be Rambo.

David (No Guns) Hogg & Laura (Blazing Guns) Ingraham

The pair reportedly considered a number of competitions before settling on the non-lethal card game.  Ingraham proposed laser tag, dodge ball and skeet shooting.  Hogg shot down all three options in a testy tirade, labeling all three Ingraham suggestions as too violent.

“A bully is a bully, and Ingraham is a bully that won’t change her stripes,” Hogg said in a confusing mixed metaphor.

Ingraham wryly suggested a waiting period and background checks on Hogg’s future use of metaphors may be needed before he shoots his mouth off again.

Hogg suggested  he and Ingraham square off in Trivial Pursuit (1990’s edition), a Dance Off or a lip syncing competition to be judged by Simon Cowell and two judges to be chosen based on a poll of his social media followers.

No date has been announced for the Hogg-Ingraham Bridge Challenge, but both competitors say they are looking forward to it.

“That blonde bit#$ is all about guns and building f*#$@%! walls, but let’s see how she deals with my generation’s choice of building god$@! bridges that remove guns and bring all of us together,” Hogg said in a recent tweet. “And f#@! the NRA.”

Ingraham also sounded feisty on the topic of their upcoming competition.

“I’ve apologized more than once to this jackboot marching little snowflake, and it’s obvious that he’s not interested in forgiveness or a sincere apology, but extracting the maximum amount of flesh he can from his expiring 15-minutes of fame.

“Fine.  I played a lot of bridge at Dartmouth and the University of Virginia School of Law – neither of which are schools he’ll ever be able to get into,” she said, eyes flashing defiantly.

“And God bless the NRA.”
