The headline says it all, no need for futher commentary.
LONDON'S police force is too concerned about being branded racist to challenge extreme views among Muslim officers, a former counter-terror officer has revealed.

"To summarize, those who wanted to fight monsters have become them, and while some had the good sense to realize what they became like Ian Miles Cheong and denounce everything this illegitimate cause stood for, those that have fallen for this hypocritical cult are the true enemies of those who actually want to stop bigotry and hate."

Some time slightly before GamerGate kicked into high gear, I nearly drank the social justice warrior koolaid. At the time, I was a bleeding heart liberal (I'm still somewhat liberal in

+Tommi Brander to me using labels as tools of rallying seem like a zero sum game, since it is misused so often. Like the label of freedom of speech is misused by racists and white nationalists to garner support from ignorant masses. Maybe it is because people obsess over these labels, like they are holy scriptures or gods. Instead I'd suggest analyzing historical effects of labels, and how they improved things. Then concentrate on the individual ideas behind labels, and shift focus on discussing these ideas instead of the labels. In this way labels could be recycled into actual projects of social improvement without specific ideological focus.

And if you don't believe me that freedom if speech as a label is being hijacked by white nationalists, just google Alt-Right. That's some scary shit. These people advocate for a white ethnostate, but deny any allegations of racism by saying that racism as a word has lost it's meaning. There are some stupid blacks and jews who claim to be a part of Alt-Right right, but I guess their definition of Alt-Right has nothing to do with the actual movement.

The gruesome murders of gays in the region are shocking. So is how rarely the violence gets reported.

Many of these countries are macho oriented, and issue is compounded if a drunk picks a male prostitute passing as female. I think that's typically when it turns into tragedy.

Schools are being divided among those who support safe spaces, and those who do not. Interesting.
After the University of Chicago told incoming freshmen that the school is not a safe space and that speakers would not be disinvited, several other schools have stepped up to defend the First Amendment. Following Chicago's lead, Columbia University President Lee C. Bollinger told incoming freshmen that free speech issues are highly, highly complicated, but noted an acceptance of free speech. We don't ban speech. We don't censor speech, Bollinger ...

An article about the modern perversions of social justice. This article should be a higher quality one with citations and stuff like that.

Democracy is flawed because people who vote are not knowledgeable or interested.
Jason Brennan’s lengthy and provocative essay on democracy, is a follow up to his book and it challenges the foundational wisdom of our time, that democracy is good and moral. I hesitate to s…

This is pretty serious. Religiously motivated for sure.
On a Sunday, July 3, protesters in Brazil took to one of the main avenues in São Paulo to show their support for Congressman Jair Bolsonaro (PSC-RJ),

It could be bigots that hide in religion, I don't recall where in the bible it calls for killing based on sexual preference.
