Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 26, 2021

After backlash from thinking adults LinkedIn decided it would be best not to include anti-white propaganda in it's curriculum. Apparently they thought that describing people as arrogant and ignorant based on skin color was okay. This is not what dr. King envisioned.

"Anti-white propaganda"

Score one for real anti-racism.

Now if only Facebook and Twitter would follow suit, despite the fact they've signaled they're moving in the opposite direction to appease bigots who complained they were being censored for anti-white and anti-male rhetoric.

Snowflakes? Imagine for a second if they had an article titled how to be less black.

He slammed the politics of white resistance.
I slam it too.
This identity politics and victimhood is out of control by an entire class of The Privileged that are utterly terrified they'll lose their "specialness" and power. They are afraid of the "Them."

It's like watching Snowpiercer play out across America.

BTW - I'm not even sure i'd go as far as I did in calling what Obama said even that. The actual interview is accurate and a cold analysis of the situation.

Cancel culture.

Looks like the racist curriculum got canceled.

Spare us the appeal to authority bull----.

An appeal to Authority can never involve an actual Authority in a field.

That's why baseball players being quoted regarding what pianos they like to buy is an appeal to Authority and doctors being quoted regarding medicine is not.

I'm using textbook definitions.... I see what you did there.

#14 | Posted by Tor at 2021-02-27 02:03 PM | Reply

Which textbook says that?

And you're saying MLK is an expert on... what, exactly?
Was it right or wrong for LinkedIn to do this, according to your expert?

"The Confronting Racism course featuring Robin DiAngelo is no longer available in our course library, at the request of the 3rd party content provider we licensed this content from,"

So it wasn't even LinkedIn's idea to remove it.
They were simply doing what their customer asked.

Is MLK an expert on that too?

Regardless of what color a person's skin is, they usually live up to what's expected of them. Throwing free ---- at people of any color is a bad idea. People need opportunity, they need guidance and they need expectations. Consoling poor people and telling them it's not their fault blah, blah, blah will simply keep them tied to their current circumstances. I'm all for spending tax money to generate opportunities for the poor. Opportunities that can lead to decent incomes and a real way out of poverty.

Looks like someone forgot what an appeal to authority looks like.

"Throwing free ---- at people of any color is a bad idea."

It certainly turned President Donald J. TRUMP into a man responsible for the deaths of 500,000 Americans and counting.

Appeal to Authority
argumentum ad verecundiam

(also known as: argument from authority, ipse dixit)

Description: Insisting that a claim is true simply because a valid authority or expert on the issue said it was true, without any other supporting evidence offered. Also see the appeal to false authority .

Logical Form:

According to person 1, who is an expert on the issue of Y, Y is true.

Therefore, Y is true.

Example #1:

Richard Dawkins, an evolutionary biologist and perhaps the foremost expert in the field, says that evolution is true. Therefore, it's true.

Explanation: Richard Dawkins certainly knows about evolution, and he can confidently tell us that it is true, but that doesn't make it true. What makes it true is the preponderance of evidence for the theory.

Dawkins is an expert on zoology I don't know about your source.

LOL @ your appeal to authority.

#22 | Posted by snoofy at 2021-02-28 05:07 PM | Reply

What has Dawkins ever said about zoology that isn't vouched for by the entire Zoological community?
