Trump administration considers rollback of anti-discrimination rules

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Economics, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 11:33

No body ever try to tell me again that Republicans are not racist or what supremacists.  Yes this has been a goal of the leaders, but if you still support this party, this president, their goals, you honestly are a racist white supremacist.  Own it.   People wake up.  This is so like Germany in the 1930’s.   They did not start out with ovens.  It started with demonizing a segment of the population.   Making laws to favor a majority white national class.  Remember women were regulated to basically breeding stock for Aryan males.  They were basically forced to have babies from different men.   They had no control over their bodies or sexual organs.  We are dangerously close to that time in this country.   One party in Germany got into power and change the rules to gain and keep power regardless of what the majority of the population wanted.   Sound like any party in our country today.   Wake up, get angry, fight back now before it is too late to fight at all.   Hugs

The Trump administration is considering a far-reaching rollback of civil rights law that would dilute federal rules against discrimination in education, housing and other aspects of American life, people familiar with the discussions said.

A recent internal Justice Department memo directed senior civil rights officials to examine how decades-old “disparate impact” regulations might be changed or removed in their areas of expertise, and what the impact might be, according to people familiar with the matter. Similar action is being considered at the Education Department and is underway at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Under the concept of disparate impact, actions can amount to discrimination if they have an uneven effect even if that was not the intent, and rolling back this approach has been a longtime goal of conservative legal thinkers. Past Republican administrations have done little to erode the concept’s application, partly out of concerns that the Supreme Court might disagree, or that such changes would be unpopular and viewed as racist.

The Trump administration signaled its hostility to this approach in a report issued last week by the Federal Commission on School Safety, which recommended rescinding the school discipline guidance. In a sharply worded and controversial chapter, the report said the validity of disparate impact analysis “cannot be squared with the Supreme Court’s holdings.” The administration revoked the guidance a few days later.

A leading Holocaust historian just seriously compared the US to Nazi Germany

People who compare Trump to Hitler correctly see history repeating itself in the way Hitler rose to power and the tactics he used, and Trump’s despicable assault on all our own democratic institutions, his demonization of immigrants and the inhuman caging of thousands of kids and cruel separation from their parents.

SOUTH CAROLINA IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JEWISH PARENTS

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Race, Religion — Scottie @ 11:33

I have been saying it was only a matter of time before the christian bigots went after other groups they don’t like, and especially single women.   They are determined to make this country a christian theocracy where Christian rule and other must live as the Christians dictate.  Your freedoms don’t matter, all that matters is their religious doctrines get the force of law.   Hugs

https://theintercept.com/2018/10/19/south-carolina-foster-parent-discrimination-miracle-hill-ministries/

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering whether to grant a South Carolina request that would effectively allow faith-based foster care agencies in the state the ability to deny Jewish parents from fostering children in its network. The argument, from the state and from the agency, is that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act should not force a Protestant group to work with Jewish people if it violates a tenet of their faith.

The case being made by South Carolina is an extension of the debate around RFRA, which is more commonly associated with discrimination against LGBTQ people, but by no means applies exclusively to that group.

If granted, the exemption would allow Miracle Hill Ministries, a Protestant social service agency working in the state’s northwest region, to continue receiving federal dollars while “recruiting Christian foster families,” which it has been doing since 1988, according to its website. That discrimination would apply not just to Jewish parents, but also to parents who are Muslim, Catholic, Unitarian, atheist, agnostic or other some other non-Protestant Christian denomination.

A great post from Infidel753.

http://infidel753.blogspot.com/2018/02/video-of-day-dont-blame-atheists.html

Video of the day — don’t blame the atheists


Atheist activist AronRa speaks in Austin, Texas.  This is the kind of hard-hitting, confrontational stance toward religion that we need more of — and he doesn’t shy away, as so many do, from addressing the international aspect of the problem.  As the importance of technology in every area of life increases, a nation dominated by absurd superstitions and an irrational view of the world cannot maintain its leadership position, not when western Europe and the advanced East Asian nations have mostly left such encumbrances behind.  The influence of the Christian Right is hobbling the United States, slowing our progress and even dragging us backward, while others advance.

Oh, and if you think the humiliating picture he paints is attributable to Trump, this speech was delivered in 2012.  Since Trump took office and the anti-science party assumed full control of the government, the situation has gotten even worse.

Islamic Feminism – Debunked (Yassmin Abdel-Magied Hitchslapped)

Filed under: History, Ideas, opinion, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 07:26

There has been a lot of debate here on my Toy Box about Islam and what it really is about, means, or practices.   I have my own opinions and views as someone not in a Islamic run country, and not a member of the faith.   I have seen the comments here that range from supportive to arguing that Islam is a danger to the whole world.  I admit I am confused by this subject, but I live in a country where there use to be a separation between government and religion, something the Christians are trying their best to destroy.  They may not like the result of their actions on this subject.   So I offer this video for discussion.  I look forward to hearing from everyone.  Hugs
