Arizona Lawmaker David Stringer Claims Black People Don’t ‘Blend In’ With Society

Reporting on the story, Slate notes:

An Arizona state politician recently re-elected to office despite a history of racist remarks is once again fending off calls from his own party to resign after audio recordings surfaced of him telling students that black immigrants are more of a burden on society than white immigrants because “they don’t blend in. They always look different.”

Republican state Rep. David Stringer, who made the remarks last month to a group of Arizona State University students quietly recording him after a lecture, told the students that “racial tension” and multiculturalism made institutions like the military and the education system weaker and that immigration should be capped to “create more opportunity for assimilation, so it’s not too much too fast.”

The following is an excerpt from the recorded conversation:

David Stringer: Also, diversity in our country is relatively new.

Unknown Student: What do you mean? Irish and Italian—my great-grandfather …

David Stringer: They were all Europeans. By the second or third generation, everybody looks the same. Everybody talks the same, but that’s not the case with African Americans or other racial groups because they don’t melt in. They don’t blend in. They always look different.

Unknown Student: Why does looking different matter?David Stringer: I don’t know. And maybe it doesn’t. It doesn’t to you. Maybe it doesn’t to a lot of people. But it seems to matter to a lot of people who move out of Detroit, who move out of Baltimore—you know, we have white flight in this country.

 

Citing the Bible, TN School Board Member Rejects Gay-Straight Alliance Club

Again a person using their religious beliefs to force others to obey their version of god.  This person says his god comes before all state laws, federal laws, the bill of rights, and even the constitution.   He wants a theocracy built on his his god and his version , forcing everyone to do as he sees fit.   He is a religious asshole.  There is more at the link below.     Hugs

Tecky Hicks, who works as a Baptist pastor, said that if the GSA group was formed, he would urge parents to pull their kids out of school.

Hicks told board members he took the same oath as [Vice Chairman Debbie] Shedden, but he believes the Bible supersedes the Constitution of the U.S., the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, school board policy, the state constitution “and everything else.”

“Therefore, based on that, there’s no way under God’s heaven I can approve any such club in our schools,” Hicks told the board. “I’ve got a daughter who has a child in second grade this year, and she has already made the decision that if something like this is approved by our board, she’s pulling her kid out of school. I would suggest, and I’ll make it a public statement, that every person in the county who has that privilege — do it.

“I’ll take my stand on what I believe above and beyond anything man has ever made because the Bible plainly teaches that we are to subject ourselves to the authority that’s over us as long as the authority doesn’t overstep the bounds of what God has said it ought to be. God settled that over 2,000 years ago, folks, and I’m going to stand on it until hell freezes over.

He took an oath… and then promptly refused to follow it because being a religious bigot matters more than doing what’s best for students. That’s his philosophy. While the district might be better off without families that think like him, it’s a sad statement that the existence of a club for students he thinks are Hell-bound is enough to make a push for homeschooling. (Would he say the same thing about a club for atheists? Jews? Hindus?)

He doesn’t understand who pays for the tariffs. He thinks the country sending the goods do. That is wrong. The company importing the item pays the tariff which they then pass on the the consumer. Us , we the people pay the damn tariff.

Hair Furor Floats Idea Of State Television Network

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Criminal, Fascism, Harm, News, Political, Questions — Tags: , , — Scottie @ 08:23

https://www.joemygod.com/2018/11/hair-furor-floats-idea-of-state-television-network/

Donald Trump, as we’ve known for 40 years, hates to cede the spotlight. So just as NASA was making an ultra-rare successful Mars landing that was carried live on some outlets, the president of the United States decided to float the idea of a state-run television network “to show the world the way we really are, GREAT.”

Trump’s idea — or that of whomever he heard say it this morning — would be laughable if it weren’t so ludicrous. And authoritarian. His first tweet is a slam at CNN, which “doesn’t do great based on ratings, outside the U.S.,” and he appears to think the real ratings gold could come from Citizens of the World being told what’s really going on here in ‘Murica.

Christians Claim Dead Missionary Was A ‘Martyr’ – Call For Punishment Of Tribes People

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Atheism, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion — Scottie @ 13:04

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/11/christians-claim-dead-missionary-was-a-martyr-call-for-punishment-of-tribes-people/

And at least one prominent Christian group, International Christian Concern, is calling for the punishment of the isolated tribes people. According to reports the organization is calling Chau’s death a “murder,” and wants the native people responsible for Chau’s death “brought to justice.”

However, other, more reasonable people, would call the killing of Chau self-defense, given the real threat Chau posed to the Sentinelese people. Not only was Chau determined to corrupt their culture with his ignorant Christian superstition, the arrogant and deplorable Christian missionary was also willing to expose the isolated tribes people to disease and sickness they had no immunity to defend themselves against.

Dead Missionary John Chau’s Last Letter Home Reveals Outsized Zeal and Naiveté

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/11/24/dead-missionary-john-chaus-last-letter-home-reveals-outsized-zeal-and-naivete/

 

Chau had no business going where he went. He considered himself above the law. He made a nuisance of himself by bothering people who had done nothing to him, and who wished nothing more than to be left in peace. He wouldn’t take no for an answer.

Above all, by attempting to foist himself upon the tribespeople, he risked wiping out every one of them, as the hyper-isolated islanders likely have no resistance to viral illnesses like the measles and influenza.

Did Chau, in his research, not come across or consider this salient fact? Do they not teach basic biology at Oral Roberts? Or does the chance of accidental genocide pale next to the exciting prospect of bagging souls for Jesus?
