The left beclowns itself again as it complains that the OG Slasher Michael Meyers of the Halloween franchise is "homophobic" because he killed a gay couple in the newest sequel of the oft-rebooted and very lame franchise. They're not complaining of the large number of straight people he killed.

To be honest, I don't know if these are real complaints or SJW critics trying to make some trouble for #WokeHollywood by using their own rulebook against them.

Biden has finally ordered the government to fund the wall.

The taxpayer-funded wall around his beach house, I mean.

The Department of Homeland Security will spend nearly a half-million dollars for a Delaware construction company to build a fence around President Joe Biden's beach house.

...

Construction of Biden's security fence comes as the president faces a record-high surge of illegal immigrants at the southern border. Border Patrol agents this year detained more than 1.7 million migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, the highest total ever recorded, according to the Washington Post.

One of Biden's first actions in office was halting construction of former president Donald Trump's border wall. Homeland Security this month canceled remaining contracts for building the wall.

Here's some more of that Fake Outrage Culture War stuff that Obama was complaining about:

Bernie Sanders' wife should worry: AOC puts on the bedroom eyes in talking about her late-night sesh's with her socialist hero.

A teacher has been placed on leave for an "offensive" math lesson in which she wore an Indian headdress and performed a mock-Indian dance.

I saw this on Libs of Tik Tok last week.

Do you guys recognize what she's chanting and what she's trying to drill into students' heads?


I have mixed feelings about this because this is exactly how I learned "SOHCAHTOA," the trigonometry mnemonic for remembering how to calculate the Sine, Cosine, and Tangent of an angle. Sine = the side opposite the angle you're solving for divided by the hypotenuse (SOH), Cosine = the adjacent side divided by the hypotenuse (CAH), and Tangent = the opposite side over the adjacent side (TOA).

I think two teachers or more used the line about the Great Chief SOHCAHTOA inventing trigonometry. One teacher did a more low-key version of the SOHCAHTOA chant. Not with a headdress or dancing, but doing the SOHCAHTOAH SOHCAHTOA SOHCAHTOA chant.

And here's the thing: It worked. I thought of Sohcahtoa last weekliterally days before this story came out. (I'm slightly psychic in a completely useless way.)

I was trying to think of an Indian place-name and thought "Sohcahtoa," and then realized: Oh wait, that's the trigonometry mnemonic. That's not really an Indian place-name.

And within fifteen seconds I worked out what each letter stood for.

So, it works. And I bet that 99% of the students of the past 100 years have learned SOHCAHTOA as an Indian chant.

This woman went to town on it, but I know why she was doing it. She was trying to give the students a lesson they wouldn't forget. She made herself ridiculous so that the memory would stick in their brains.

And honestly, I don't really understand how parodying a bit of a culture is "offensive." Teachers have been saying "Great Chief Sohcahtoa" for 100 years because it does sound like an Indian word.

But whatever, let's crucify the Math Racist.

If you're going to make something a cancellable offense, is there... zero time allowed before the announcement of the policy and its enforcement?

The SJWs are a bunch of robots who click the "Download and Install" button the moment there's any minor iterative update to their programming, and then expect everyone else to be Good Little Robots like they are.

A more optimistic story: Dads On Duty.
