No one's going to defend a white teacher by claiming an anti-white slur is a fighting word, so the kid learned a valuable lesson.

Sure because,  bear with me here, different races are different.

While we should strive as a society to provide people equal opportunities to excel in America,  it's obvious that there are differences between races, and that needs to be recognized as well.

That said, there are pejorative you could throw at a white person that I feel would make me kinda blase about any response. They aren't exclusive to white folks the way the hard "R" is to American black folks, but they are out there.  Pedo, Nazi, and Commie, if said to me in earnest, probably earn an ass whooping.


Next I'll blow your m8nds and point out the two sexes are different too.

A few years ago I would have come to the same conclusion by saying, " the races are equal, but their history is not." Post-2020, though, that must be abandoned. We've clearly overcompensated past racial equality into a moment in which anti-white racism is ascendant. So no more coddling of non-whites. It has to be total, ruthlessly-equal treatment. Sauce for the goose, etc.

FAFO.  There's a reason some things are called "Fighting Words".


Anyone who responds to words with violence is a fool.

Anyone who responds to words with violence is a fool.

Quote from: Robert A. Heinlein
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms.

Humans are aggressive pack predators, and violence, or the threat of violence, is the main force driving our behavior.  Whether a threat on a Macro scale (Follow these rules for living or you will burn in a lake of fire for Eternity), or Micro scale (Say that again and I'll kick your ass), it's the driving engine behind all human behavior.  You do it to, you just farm the4 violence out to government agents to do it for you.

As to escalate someone's words to physicality being foolish, there's a lot of variables to that, including the aforementioned government agents.  But generally: I think when people tell you who they are and what they believe, you should believe them, and sometimes that telling warrants a violent response.

Except there will be consequences for that violence and this teacher is finding that out.  The teenager is probably going to catch some of that also.

I'm still unclear as to whether the teacher attacked the student AFTER the student dropped a racial slur, or whether the student dropped the racial slur and then attacked the teacher, who responded.

Sure.  I believe I mentioned the government agents in the post you quoted.

For clarity:  That last post that you quoted there was in direct response to Pb'S "Anyone who responds to words with violence is a fool." comment.  I disagree with that sweeping statement, and believe strongly that there are words that deserve a violent response, and (expanding that a little) that our society has insulated ourselves from the violence we visit on other people so we can hypocritically [IMO) claim non violence.


On this particular 27 YO teacher and unkonwn age (to me) high school student, the most I can muster up is "Meh, I'm not that outraged.  Two people presumably old enough to be aware of the consequences of their actions had a fight."  I am 100% NOT claiming the teacher had some moral authority to deliver retribution for the Hard R being dropped.  I'm just rejecting the forming "Teacher beat up an innocent child" narrative. The kid was old enough to predict the consequences of his words, and chose to drop them anyway.  He got smacked around.  FAFO.  Now he knows there are people who take that kind of comment *very* seriously, and maybe he should consider his use of fighting words in the future.

Yes, now he knows there are people who lose all self control with the utterance of a single word.  A violent response might be necessary sometimes.  I don't think it is normally the best option.

The belief that violence is an appropriate response to words is exactly why black Americans have an obscene murder rate.

How about a new narrative, then?

Would the school have had the same reaction if it was a Christian girl? I would hope so but I wonder.

Definitely not.  Which is why I said I wasn't sure it was a win.  Mark against the trannys, mark for kowtowing to Islamic social strictures.

So much for Brandon having cured cancer:

https://twitchy.com/amy-curtis/2024/05/02/milwaukee-football-coach-chemo-shortage-n2395762

With tinfoil in place, one of the comments resonated with me: I wonder if a bunch of chemo drugs have been prioritized for illegals and if that's one of the reasons for the shortages?

Also another comment about where the chemo drugs come from. I have no idea, but am wondering if any components come from China or elsewhere. It seems that whole thing about the majority of our drugs and drug precursors coming from overseas has kinda fallen off the media radar. I'm wondering if the gov has been doing anything to increase domestic production?

Came across this meme this morning 




Thought to myself it's got to be fake so I googled "trans canine" and some stuff came up including this.
There were some other results where people said they checked up on it and said it's real.

I did some digging on this crazy bish. I wish I hadn't. It's true. There's videos. Not seen them all, but one was too much. I'm permanently scarred. Apparently there was incidents with her underage cousins. FBI and local police have been notified.

As of this writing of this comment, she is still tweeting. Still seems to free and facing no consequences in posting videos of animal rape (and apparently CP) on the internet, or selling them on Telegram.

Twitter user MantisDeJure is currently trying to get this person dealt with but nothing seems to be happening. Not even Twitter are taking action against this monster. Do what you can. We need to mass report this woman and get her arrested.
