Sometimes we get an interesting look into the minds of the radicals. I limit my exposure to their rantings, but in preparing for Tech at Night posts, I have to read some of it, unfortunately. I ran into a hilarious juxtaposition of articles at the Daily Dot today, that highlighted the racism bubbling beneath the surface in the Social Justice left.
It’s never enough. You know it. I know it. Hell, they know it. They get a victory and they keep going, convinced the world, history, and even reality bend to their will. The problematic Confederate Flag has come down in South Carolina, and its image is under assault everywhere else.

How bad are the Common Core State Standards horror stories getting? A friend of mine in Scotland sent me this video, saying that he was speechless, and that this is so bad, they don’t even have this in socialist Europe.
America meet “Obama’s social justice or better yet social injustice” a robin hood philosophy that circumvents the laws of our land attacking our freedoms and rights.
