Again: Rape is OK if an illegal immigrant does it
Murder is a frequent concomitant of rape. So murder is OK too?
On this side of the globe, the biggest controversy in scouting is whether or not a Girl Scout is biologically female. The Girl Scouts in the Czech Republic, however, have much bigger fish to fry. This past May Day, much ado was made about one Czech Scout, Lucie Myslikova, who dared to confront a Neo-Nazi demonstrator while wearing her scouting uniform. Google the event and you’ll get a slew of headlines about the teenager who “Stood Up to the Far-Right” and the photo of the “girl standing up to a skinhead” that went viral.
Get past the headlines, however, and you’ll find the story is a lot more complex than English-speaking media would lead you to believe.
Much of the coverage follows the line of the AP’s follow-up interview with Myslikova. The girl is passionate about politics and believes teenagers should have a voice in the public sphere. This wasn’t her first political rally; it was simply the first time she wore her Scout uniform to a demonstration. Her comments emphasized non-violence and non-judgement of the opposition. Of course, the World Organization of the Scout Movement jumped on the free publicity bandwagon, echoing the call for “diversity, peace and understanding.”
What, exactly, was she discussing with the skinhead? “The nation,” “borders,” and “migration.” The details of the discussion were quickly brushed aside by Western media anxious to highlight the image of a young woman confronting an adult male—something Fortune was so impressed with that they spun it into a montage of photographs of women staring down men at political rallies across Europe.
According to CNN’s coverage, Myslikova “made some profound comments.” If you want to know what she actually said, you’d have to translate an article that appeared in the French language publication the Paris Match. There, buried in the last paragraph, is a quote from the exchange between the Scout and the Neo-Nazi regarding immigration. When the Neo-Nazi asserted the teen would be “violated by those she defends,” Myslikova replied, “Even if something happened to me, the physical wounds always end up healing.”
Would the Girl Scouts care to comment on that remark? Or the English-speaking media, perhaps?
A girl wearing a Scout uniform willingly acknowledged that she could be raped by an immigrant, something that is happening to women across Europe in record numbers. Then, she essentially reasoned, I’ll get over it, and the Western world lifts her up as a hero. She justified rape in the name of political discourse. A Girl Scout opened herself up to sexual assault for the sake of her political beliefs.
What Myslikova said was profound. Profoundly scary. What, exactly, is the Girl Scout movement teaching young women today? That they must sacrifice themselves on the altar of “diversity, peace and understanding”? If they’re expecting Myslikova and her Scout sisters to live up to the Girl Scout law of being “responsible for what I say and do,” that’s pretty damned horrifying.
Conservative New Miss USA Rejects Feminism, Says Healthcare Is Not a Right
A new Miss USA was crowned on Sunday night on FOX, but it wasn’t without some political controversy.
Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough won the title, much to the chagrin of liberals who didn’t like her conservative answers in the question rounds. Her thought crimes? Saying health care is a privilege, not a right, and rejecting man-hating feminism in favor of equal opportunity.
The Miss USA pageant was hosted by Julianne Hough and Terrence J, and Julianne served up the question about affordable health care to Miss DC, who is a scientist at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission:
Julianne: District of Columbia, you're up. Do you think affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege and why?
Miss DC: I'm definitely going to say it's a privilege. As a government employee, I am granted health care, and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have a job. Therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we're given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs to all the American citizens worldwide.
Rejecting the liberal mantra that health care is a human right and wanting to cultivate an economic environment that gives job opportunities to all Americans? The horror!
The last question given to each of the three finalists was about the meaning of feminism and Miss DC became even more of a heretic for rejecting “die hard” feminism that doesn’t care about men, aka today’s radical left-wing feminism. And she must have given feminazis conniptions when she said that women and men were equal in the workplace. As for the other two, Miss Minnesota gave a weird answer about feminism being about any gender and Miss New Jersey gave an answer that liberals loved, ranting about the “fight for equality” and creating an “equal world.”
Terrence: What do you consider feminism to be, and do you consider yourself a feminist?
Julianne: Yes, you do. Absolutely you get a microphone. Here you go.
Miss DC: As a woman scientist in the government, I would like to lately transpose the word feminism to equalism. I don't really want to consider myself -- try not to consider myself like this die hard, you know, like, oh, I don't really care about men, but one thing I want to say, though, women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace.
And I say firsthand I have witnessed the impact that women have in leadership in the medical sciences as well as in the office environment, so as Miss USA, I would hope to promote that kind of leadership responsibility globally to so many women worldwide.
Terrence: Thank you, District of Columbia.
Needless to say, liberals were very upset that a smart, beautiful African-American woman took home the crown, because she espoused conservative views.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Here's hoping the new Miss USA sticks to her guns and doesn't come out with a statement tomorrow "clarifying" her answers and reading liberal talking points after all the leftist outrage.
Six Refugees Allegedly Rape UK Woman. British Authorities Let Them Go Free
On September 26, 2016, The Daily Mail reported that a young mother from Sunderland had allegedly been kidnapped and violently gang-raped by six men. The sexual assault reportedly only ceased when she managed to escape.
Law enforcement arrested the six men. All were refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Bahrain. However, they were never even tried in court. Instead, they were released; the authorities are no longer pursuing an investigation.
Chelsey Wright is that mother of three. She was out for a night with her friends and after taking a drink, she blacked out, only to awaken in a room naked except for her underwear. There was a strange man in the room who laughed at her, she said. She stated that she tried to flee and only managed to escape the room when another man opened the door.
According to her account, several men then chased Chelsey, trying to drag her back into the house by her hair; at one point, they threw her down a flight of stairs. Once outside, the men tried to tackle her in broad daylight. She managed to run away to a relative’s house where she called the Sunderland authorities.
Wright was examined and it was determined she had been raped by at least six men. The police raided the house and arrested all of the suspects.
She described the ordeal on social media, “...the next thing I remember is waking up in a strange house with no memory of how she got there. Waking up in only her knickers to next to a man she did not know. My head was pinned against the door."
Multiple witnesses came forward testifying that they heard Chelsey’s screams as the men tried to keep her trapped in the house. Many saw her flee, almost naked, down the streets of Sunderland.
As supporters called for a trial, the men were released on bail. When it was announced there would be no charges, the British authorities moved the Middle Eastern men to a safe house and later released them.
This led to a massive demonstration in Sunderland. Wright shared her story with onlookers. The demonstration turned violent as protesters threw trash cans at the house where Wright alleges she had been taken.
Despite the outcry, the police are no longer actively pursuing the case and have dropped it indefinitely. The mainstream media in England are calling Wright’s supporters members of the far right, implying they are racist and xenophobic. This has only led to a swelling of support for Wright, who has decided to be brave and not hide under the veil of anonymity.
Wright and her supporters are furious at the apathy of the British authorities. They are putting pressure on the Independent Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird DBE to begin a full investigation into her ordeal. Her supporters created a petition to address the officials in Sunderland and are planning another public demonstration for May 13.
Feminists Protest Bill That Would Let Transgenders In ‘Female-Born’ Spaces
Canadian feminists are fighting a transgender bill that would potentially allow transgenders to enter spaces reserved for women.
Two feminist activists believe Bill C-16 will negatively affect women’s spaces, like rape centers. Under Bill C-16, which would update the Canadian Human Rights Act, it would be illegal to discriminate against people on the basis of “gender identity” or “gender expression.”
“We are worried that this well-intentioned legislation will be used to undermine the rights of women and the crucial work of women’s groups,” Hilla Kerner,a Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter member, said to a committee.
Another feminist activist said the bill’s language makes it seem that a person can just choose their own gender at will.
“This language is a big problem because it treats gender as a personal choice. It treats gender as though it’s the clothes that I wear or my makeup or my behaviour or the way we sit,” Meghan Murphy, founder of the website Feminist Current, said to senators.
Kerner added that her rape center only allows “female-born” people because women usually want to be surrounded by women who can relate to their experiences.
“Female-born women and people who were born male and self-identify as women have different life experiences. I don’t know what it means to ‘feel like a woman’ — I know what it is to be a girl and to be a woman, and the experiences and the feelings I have because I am a woman,” Kerner explained.
A Christian group and a feminist group recently joined up to fight a transgender bill in the United States. The Family Policy Alliance and the Women’s Liberation Front both fought an Obama administration mandate that allowed transgenders into the bathroom of their choice.

“How wrong does something need to be for a Christian family group, and a radical feminist group, to take their argument together to the Supreme Court?” Autumn Leva, the leader of the Women’s Liberation Front, said.
Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.
American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of other countries. The only real difference, however, is how much power they have. In America, their power is limited by democracy. To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges. They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did: None. So look to the colleges to see what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way. It would be a dictatorship.
