Here’s one university’s ‘Cry Closet’ — the safe space within a safe space

As it turns out, the post-Millennial generation is looking at symbols of the Millennial generation like “Pajama Boy” and saying “hold our beer”:

About 75 years ago, 19-year-olds were knocking back Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. At the University of Utah in 2018, a safe space has been provided to surrender to the war on school stress:

“They load us up with finals like you wouldn’t believe,” said Jayden Skinner, another freshman studying biomedical engineering.

With that, might come the sound of crying, as the stress and pressure builds up.

Ahanonu said there’s certainly, “the need to relieve some stress.”

In the middle of a walkway at Marriott, graduating College of Fine Arts senior Nemo Miller built a space just for that—The Cry Closet.

The makeshift room features a narrow door, and inside, dark fabric lining and a plush floor filled with stuffed animals.

A timer hangs on the inside of the door, and two dome lights provide a low, ambient light.

On the outside of the door, a framed page reads: “A Safe Place for Stressed Out Students.”

“This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10 minute break,” the note states.

In fairness, not nearly all of the so-called “post-Millennial” generation are triggered so. My son’s graduating from college Saturday with a degree in aerospace engineering and he’s done an insane amount of work. I assume part of the reason he’s been able to successfully complete all his work is that he hasn’t hasn’t wasted any time weeping in a closet.

Whew! London police successfully get assault pliers off the street

It’s come to this

There’s already gun control in England, but now that London’s surpassed NYC’s murder rate because of knife attacks, “knife control” is now all the rage.

How ridiculous has it gotten? Look at this from a division of the London Metropolitan Police:

Now that’s an “assault toolbox” right there. British cops would sh*t themselves if they went into my garage!

In London, the confiscation of any sharp object continues. It never ceases to amaze that there are those who believe the best way to stop a crime wave is to make potential victims more helpless.

The horror! Toronto chef delivers meaty ‘in your face’ to animal rights protesters outside his restaurant

Oh the humanity!

There are a couple ways to handle animal rights protesters at your restaurant/store: A) Try to appease, negotiate and pledge to do things differently in the future to placate them, or B) What this guy did:

A Toronto chef, apparently exasperated at an animal rights protest outside his restaurant, carried what appeared to be venison to the front windows facing the sidewalk. He took a knife and began separating the meat from the bone as the protesters watched.

As he did, one of the protesters videoed the scene and gave frantic commentary: “To taunt the activists,” said the man behind the camera in a video posted online and picked up by BlogTO, “he has brought the leg of a recently murdered deer to this dining area.”

Michael Hunter, the chef and owner of Antler Kitchen and Bar, didn’t look at the protesters, didn’t say anything. Some police officers on hand for the protest entered the restaurant to speak with him – though Toronto police deny they asked him to stop what he was doing. “It’s his restaurant he can do what he wants, really,” Sgt. Philip Townley said.

Hunter finished cutting, put the meat in a pan and headed back to the kitchen. In half an hour or so, he returned with an impressively seared steak — perhaps of the same venison he had butchered — on a white plate, unaccompanied. It was the middle of Friday night dinner service, just after 8 p.m., and here was the chef, at the front of the restaurant, sitting alone and eating.

“It shocked me,” said protest organizer Marni Ugar. “It made me feel really sad.

When vegan protesters watch meat being cut they sound like they’re describing the Hindenberg disaster:

Oh the humanity!

Irony 101: Campus ‘diversity dean’ springs into action after Christina Sommers’ speech gets a little TOO diverse

In case anybody’s wondering why a college “education” costs as much as a beach house, think “diversity dean” and it’ll all add up.

Christina Sommers of the conservative American Enterprise Institute think tank spoke at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon on Monday, and ironically some students and faculty weren’t in a mood to explore other opinions. These snowflakes love free speech so much that somebody who doesn’t agree with them shouldn’t be allowed to talk:

“You shouldn’t be allowed to speak here, you fascist!” I constantly marvel at leftists’ inability to comprehend how f**king ironic they are.

Oh, but here’s the best part! Guess who wanted Sommers to finish up and get out of there — the school’s “diversity dean.” Apparently things were getting TOO diverse:

Just in case anybody’s wondering why a college “education” costs about as much as a beach house, think “diversity dean” and it’ll all add up.

When ‘if you see something say something’ is outweighed by fear of PC police backlash

The Department of Homeland Security often says this: “If you see something, say something.”

Unfortunately a lot of people fear what might happen if they follow that advice, as evidenced by this person who noticed suspicious activity at a home where the people accused of killing 14 in San Bernardino had been living:

It was believed that the Redlands home was the home of Syed Farook’s sister and mother.

The second shooting suspect who was killed in a shootout with authorities was identified as Farook’s wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27.

Neighbors in Redlands were shocked that the suspects had ties to their area.

“I was in awe that it was happening four houses down from my property,” one neighbor said.

A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.

“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?’” he said. “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”

According to libs, it’s probably just easier to let them do whatever it is they’re doing and later blame it on Republican prayers and the NRA.

‘The most trusted name in news’ strikes again

Spin, CNN-style:

ALL those non-Islamic-related mass violence deaths were done by right-wingers, eh?

CNN also used the “since 9/11” technique to avoid escalating the Islamic terrorism numbers dramatically. That’s as ridiculous as making a chart listing deaths caused by Nazis and using the disclaimer “since June 1945.”

Also, if CNN used data before 9/11, they’d have to include wacky Ted Kaczynski, who wasn’t exactly a devoted fan of the GOP (Republicans don’t tend to have dog-eared, highlighted copies of Al Gore’s books in their collections).

Not The Onion: Good parenting is unfair to kids with crappy parents, or something

Driving home from the dentist earlier I heard Rush mention this bit of predictable progressive hilarity that’s no doubt coming to the U.S. before too long (if it isn’t here already).



No, seriously, that’s not from The Onion — it’s a story from ABC Radio, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

This pullquote running with the article is progressive gold:


Remember, only by ensuring that our kids are helpless dipshit wards of the state can we truly have equality for the children!

The State Department obviously decided Obama’s ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ summit wasn’t quite embarrassing enough

The hashtag-happy bunch at the State Department are following up on President Obama’s “Countering Violent Extremism” summit with even more embarrassment:

Sounds like “PC neighborhood Watch” meets “midnight basketball.”

Anybody want to “mentor” a member of ISIS?

The State Dept. didn’t even advise communities to offer those identified as potential brutal mass killers reset buttons. What gives?

Susan Rice recommends more diverse U.S. diplomats who ‘look like the world’… and don’t question talking points

Creating a more effective diplomatic corps through platitudes:

No mention of a necessity for competence, honesty or integrity, and for good reason.
