Sounds like some folks are taking the Joker seriously, i.e., they are mentally handicapped.

Would the SJW’s be more pleased if they made a movie with a sadistic evil African American criminal?

Afromuricans suffer some of highest (if not THE highest) rates of violent victimization and murder. Also disproportionately over-represented as perpetrators of violence and murder relative to other "groups" . . .

Black Panther portrays an effectively despotic super-tech sci fi society where the leadership succession is decided by what mechanism? Democracy? No. Intellectual, organizational, leadership, or creative merit? No: Fight to the Death.

SJWs: no big deal. This empowers and advances the status of person's of color! :mrgreen:

Hollywood has become a complete dumpster in the past 30 years or so. Yes, they make some very slick and polished presentations but the themes are much too dark and sadistic for my taste.

Regarding evil and revenge: Our family just found out today that a coworker and friend of my father's was murdered in a "workplace revenge" killing back in 2017. We received a letter from his widow today. I don't care what color a person's skin is, killing someone out of revenge for a workplace squabble is absolutely inexcusable. The perp is now in prison for life on first degree murder. I googled the story.

I don't think it serves any constructive purpose to try to put a human face on evil. It's like doing a biography of Hitler or Stalin and trying to tie their evil deeds with the day someone shot their dog, Barkey or something. No excuses. It's stupid to try to justify evil.

Microsoft staff are openly questioning the value of "diversity"
Quote:
Some Microsoft employees are openly questioning whether diversity is important, in a lengthy discussion on an internal online messaging board meant for communicating with CEO Satya Nadella.

Two posts on the board criticizing Microsoft diversity initiatives as “discriminatory hiring” and suggesting that women are less suited for engineering roles have elicited more than 800 comments, both affirming and criticizing the viewpoints, multiple Microsoft employees have told Quartz. The posts were written by a female Microsoft program manager. Quartz reached out to her directly for comment, and isn’t making her name public at this point, pending her response.

“Does Microsoft have any plans to end the current policy that financially incentivizes discriminatory hiring practices? To be clear, I am referring to the fact that senior leadership is awarded more money if they discriminate against Asians and white men,” read the original post by the Microsoft program manager on Yammer, a corporate messaging platform owned by Microsoft. The employee commented consistently throughout the thread, making similar arguments. Quartz reviewed lengthy sections of the internal discussion provided by Microsoft employees.

“I have an ever-increasing file of white male Microsoft employees who have faced outright and overt discrimination because they had the misfortune of being born both white and male. This is unacceptable,” the program manager wrote in a comment later. The Microsoft employees who spoke to Quartz said they weren’t aware of any action by the company in response, despite the comments being reported to Microsoft’s human resources department.

When contacted by Quartz, Microsoft pointed to comments by three company officials in the message-board threads. A member of Microsoft’s employee investigations team responded to the initial post in January, writing that the company does not tolerate discrimination of any kind. Another Microsoft staff member, who leads the team that helps the board of directors determine executive pay, explained the diversity-based compensation initiative. “Our board and executive leadership team believe diverse and inclusive teams are good for business and consistent with our mission and inspire-to culture,” she wrote. “Linking compensation to these aspirations is an important demonstration of executive commitment to something we believe strongly in.

A GOP Congressman was invited to speak at a cyber security conference.
Politicians get invited to conferences all the time.
But this guy is more than just a Congressman.
He's a former CIA employee ( for 9 years).
He also worked at a a strategic advisory firm, and also at a cybersecurity firm.
Much of his Congressional efforts focuses on bipartisan cybersecurity and technology bills.

He was disinvited from the conference after some people put up a stink about him.

Was it because he formerly worked at the CIA?
Was it because he is a Republican?
Was it because he is a racist or something?

None to all of the above (and he's African-American so he is not some white nationalist).

It was because he is pro-life.

Last I heard, abortion has nothing to do with cybersecurity.

GOP Congressman Nixed As Keynote Speaker For Cybersecurity Conference

KAREN TOWNSEND
Posted at 11:31 am on June 15, 2019

The effort by the left to de-platform conservative speakers continues. This time it is Rep. Will Hurd, former CIA officer, and cybersecurity expert, who has been disinvited to be a keynote speaker at a cybersecurity conference. The reason? He’s a pro-life Republican politician. No, really.

This slight doesn’t make any sense at all except to highlight the fact that there is no tolerance from the pro-abortion left for pro-life politicians. What does a pro-life position have to do with cybersecurity? The answer is absolutely nothing.

Black Hat USA will host a conference August 3-8 in Las Vegas. Black Hat, “the world’s leading producer of information security events” according to their press release, announced on June 13 that Rep. Will Hurd was scheduled as a keynote speaker Wednesday, August 7.

Today, Black Hat, the world’s leading producer of information security events, announces that Will Hurd, U.S. Representative and Former CIA Officer, known for his work in pushing for cybersecurity initiatives in Congress, will Keynote Black Hat USA 2019. During his time in public service, Hurd has emphasized the importance of information security and technology – he has put forth specific initiatives related to education, retention, and support to ensure the longevity and safety of the U.S. government. Hurd will take the Keynote stage at 9 AM on Wednesday, August 7 in the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Hurd is currently a member of the 23rd District of Texas in Congress – he is the first member to serve this district for three consecutive terms in a decade. Similar to the rest of his political career, Hurd has made technology his priority moving into 2019, listing artificial intelligence, helping federal agencies address critical technology issues, and a new cybersecurity scholarship program as his to-do’s to help modernize and secure the government. His hope is to see more bipartisan support in 2019 for major issues like cybersecurity and transportation.

Hurd has specifically put a focus on digital hygiene – calling out the need for an update to the Department of Veterans Affairs technologies. And he’s pushed to create a national plan on the use of AI-based technologies, as well as launch the Cyber National Guard initiative that would fund students to study cybersecurity and enter the federal government.


The press release went on to describe Hurd’s work as an undercover CIA officer in the Middle East and South Asia where he collected intelligence for America’s national security agenda. He is a member of the House Intelligence Committee. Black Hat hosts high profile global events that strive to “bring together the best minds in the industry.” Except, apparently, pro-life cybersecurity experts.

Zack Whittaker, a security editor for Tech Crunch (and CBS alum, according to his Twitter profile) posted a tweet showing Hurd’s voting record calling it “a terrible voting record on women’s rights.” Whittaker did, however, acknowledge that Will Hurd is one of the few lawmakers who “get” cybersecurity.

Rep. Will Hurd to keynote Black Hat later this year. He's one of only a few lawmakers who gets cyber, but he has a terrible voting record on women's rights. http://politicsthatwork.com/voting-reco ... urd-412654

Whittaker wrote online that the pro-abortion attendees were clutching their pearls and were uncomfortable at the thought of being in the same room as a pro-life African-American man, or something. Most of the people he references, conveniently, asked to remain anonymous.

But several people we’ve spoken to have described their unease that Black Hat organizers have asked Hurd, a self-described pro-life lawmaker, given his consistent opposition to bills supporting women’s rights.

An analysis of Hurd’s voting record shows he supports bills promoting women’s rights only two percent of the time. He has voted against a bill that would financially support women in STEM fields, voted in favor of allowing states to restrict access and coverage to abortions, and voted to defund Planned Parenthood.

Many of those we spoke to asked to be kept anonymous amid worries of retaliation or personal attacks. One person who we asked for permission to quote said Hurd’s voting record was “simply awful” for women’s rights


At first, Black Hat defended their decision to ask Hurd to be a keynote speaker.

“Hurd has a strong background in computer science and information security and has served as an advocate for specific cybersecurity initiatives in Congress,” adding that he will offer a “unique perspective” at the conference.


But, that wasn’t good enough for the Twitter mob. By Friday Black Hat caved. They cited an error in judgement. The company “misjudged the separation of technology and politics.”

“Black Hat has chosen to remove U.S. Representative Will Hurd as our 2019 Black Hat USA Keynote. We misjudged the separation of technology and politics,” Black Hat told Tech Crunch. “We will continue to focus on technology and research, however we recognize that Black Hat USA is not the appropriate platform for the polarizing political debate resulting from our choice of speaker,”

Black Hat vowed that the conference is “still fully dedicated to providing an inclusive environment and apologize that this decision did not reflect that sentiment.”


This lame excuse – a “misjudgment” of the intersection of technology and politics – is rich. Whittaker acknowledges that “senior government figures” have been keynote speakers in the past. Then he called abortion “a human right.” Unless that human is unborn, I guess.

Although previous keynote speakers have included senior government figures, this is the first time Black Hat has confirmed a lawmaker to keynote the conference.

Although abortion rights and cybersecurity may seem like unrelated topics, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to separate social issues from technology and gatherings. It’s also valid for attendees to express concern that the keynote speaker at a professional security conference opposes what many will consider a human right.


Something that Whittaker failed to reference, though, is the founder of Black Hat’s support for Hillary Clinton in 2016 as she ran for president. He hosted a fundraiser for her during a hacker conference in Las Vegas. She’s the acceptable kind of politician, you see. It’s just really all too much, even by 2019 standards.

Will Hurd is one of the few experts that have both real life, in-field experience in intelligence gathering and also experience as a lawmaker. Friday, Black Hat told Gizmodo that the conference wasn’t a place for “polarizing political debate”. Again, that’s rich considering that in 2016 the conference literally chose a presidential candidate to support and the founder of the conference held a fundraiser for her.

But on Friday, Black Hat said it had “misjudged the separation of technology and politics.” In a statement to Gizmodo, an event spokesperson said that the conference would “continue to focus on technology and research,” but that it also recognizes that Black Hat “is not the appropriate platform for the polarizing political debate resulting from our choice of speaker.”


Maybe Black Hat, Inc. thinks that all people interested in cybersecurity issues are pro-abortion. Most of all it insults the participants who actually live in the real world and are mature enough to be in the same room as someone who holds a different position on an important social issue. They will be denied valuable information that Will Hurd is uniquely capable of delivering. Who knew there is a litmus test to speak at a cybersecurity conference?


:roll:

SJWs cannot stand even being in the same building with someone who has different political views than they do.

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

As we have seen before, you can never be "woke" enough for the SJWs and sooner or later they will turn on you.

In today's example, their target is Woody Guthrie. His anthem "This Land is Your Land" now " should either never be played again, or come with a trigger warning about Guthrie's limited, mid-20th century view of American culture."

Quote:
Guthrie somehow missed that the land he was singing about — the United States — was, in fact, land stolen from Native Americans, so it wasn't really "his land" at all.

"In the context of America, a nation-state built by settler colonialism, Woody Guthrie’s protest anthem exemplifies the particular blind spot that Americans have in regard to Natives: American patriotism erases us, even if it comes in the form of a leftist protest song," Obomsawin says.

"This land 'was' our land," she continues. "Through genocide, broken treaties, and a legal system created by and for the colonial interest, this land 'became' American land. But to question the legitimacy of American land control today instantly makes one the most radical person in the room–even in leftist circles. And because Indigenous critiques of this country are so fundamental, our voices are often marginalized to the point of invisibility."

Everybody who feels their ethnicity disentitles them to feeling like they really are part of America should starve themselves to death and arrange to have their body sold to science and will the proceeds from that and their whole estate to a native American group of their choice.
