Feminists exploiting feminists

Are you an entrepreneur interested in “birthing a new business” and making more money?

Are you a feminist looking to “contemplate capitalism” and “write your manifesto”?

Are you in search of ways to create “body-loving business practices”?

Are you dedicated to “toppling the patriarchy”?

Do you have $1200 to throw away?

If you answered yes to all these questions, you’re in luck! The Feminist Business School welcomes you!

What is the Feminist Business School, might you ask? Is it a business school? No. Is it a school? No. Does it provide its attendees business skills, such as book-keeping? No. Rather, the Feminist Business School is the brain child of (capitalist) entrepreneur Jennifer Armbrust, an Evergreen graduate with a degree in Critical Theory: it currently offers a single, $1200 course, taught by Armbrust, entitled “Concepts and Conceptions.” During this eight-week course, students will contemplate capitalism, which Armbrust believes is masculine, and introduce students to the “feminine economy,” which Armbrust defines as “A new set of values and a redistribution of money and power, based on feminine principles.” Weekly topics include Free Yourself from the Myth of the Meritocracy (Letting It Be Easy), The Trimester Theory: Stages of Birthing a Business, and Toppling the Patriarchy.

During a 20-minute CreativeMornings speech at the Portland Art Museum in 2015, on the theme of Revolution, Jennifer Armbrust shunned capitalism for its “masculine” points of emphasis, such as “speed and efficiency.” Her audience clapped in approval. Contrary to capitalism, says Armbrust, the feminine economy focuses on “mindfulness,” “generosity,” and an “abundance consciousness.” For this reason, it is important to birth a feminist business.

Armbrust provided her audience with a brief sampling of her own manifesto, entitled “100 Ways to Make More Money: Proposals for the Feminine Economy.” Armbrust assured the room, “And I absolutely believe the things on this list will make you richer, and in some ways, I think that’s the same as having more money.” Oh, and Mr. Armbrust made sure to state that her manifesto is available for purchase on her website. Included on her list are:

#3. Create more opportunities for people to give you money;

#16. Have no expectations;

#24. Read Karl Marx;

#52. Visualize money as water;

#68. Practice radical receptivity;

#77. Say no to work you don’t believe in; and

#79. See fiscal empowerment as a revolutionary act.

Perhaps sensing that the crowd had noticed the obvious – that she is a capitalist entrepreneur and that her feminine economy is very much a free market economy – Ms. Armbrust insisted otherwise. Not only is the feminine economy not a capitalist economy, it should not be considered a type of conscious capitalism either. No, insisted Armbrust, the feminine economy is completely different. And so, all of you future enrollees, you can rest assured that the Feminist Business School will provide you with the moral justification (for your own capitalist entrepreneurship), as well as the virtue-signaling credentials for which you long. Best of luck!

Why free speech is so hated by college students

Why free speech is so hated by college students

You’ve heard the stories. Free speech isn’t actually a thing on college campuses around the country. There seems to be certain types of protected speech, such as anything that embraces the leftist narrative of these progressive indoctrination centers, but any views that are considered to be too conservative for the delicate eyes or ears of college students are quickly stifled.

But it’s not just the administrators, professors, and other far-left employees of the colleges. The students themselves are opting out of free speech willingly. Sure, they’d probably complain if anyone intruded on their rights to espouse hyper-leftist ideologies or spew out progressive talking points, but that won’t happen. Why? Because those who may be opposed to their ideas are the same people who embrace limited government, free speech, and our rights as Americans. Therefore, the people who have an incentive to quash leftist notions are the very people who are against quashing anyone’s notions at all.

It’s a conundrum for conservatives because the same courtesy is not paid to them. Free speech (or any of our rights, for that matter) is neither appreciated nor sacred to leftists. So we’re stuck trying to protect our own rights to free speech while defending the left’s rights to the same. Meanwhile, they don’t have to defend their right to free speech because nobody’s trying to deny them of this right, but they’re busy trying to prevent any conservative ideas from seeping through to the collective conscious of their precious university environment.

This video by Campus Reform shows leftist students doing everything they can to prevent conservative ideas from being seen, let alone appreciated. This is important to them to stop ideas from being observed and potentially discussed, but they believe the reason they do it is to stop “hate speech.” The definition of “hate speech” on college campuses throughout America has become anything that’s contrary to their own progressive philosophy. Therein lies the real reason free speech is so hated.

We appreciate everything Campus Reform and their parent organization does. We strive to deliver strong conservative perspectives for college students as well, which is why we remain a crowdfunded publication powered by donations of our readers. The only way to stop the censorship of conservative ideas on college campuses is to continue to spread the word. We have reality on our side, so the more we push the message, the easier it will be to break through their indoctrinated defense shields.

The bottom line for college leftists is deep down, they realize their arguments are wrong. Their only defense against thoughtful conservative perspectives is to prevent as many people as possible from hearing them. Why? Because they have no defense against the truth.

Matt Walsh on his new Lamborghini and the student debt issue

Matt Walsh on his new Lamborghini and the student debt issue

Over normally not a fan of modern day parables. Biblical parables are so impressive, it makes our attempt today seem weak 99 times out of 100. Matt Walsh presented the parable of the Lamborghini today and it’s worth noting.

He framed it nicely in his article, “I Bought A Lamborghini But Now I Don’t Want To Pay For It. I Demand Lamborghini Loan Forgiveness.

As I propose — no, I demand — Lamborghini loan forgiveness. It is simply unfair that I have saddled myself with this unspeakable financial burden. It is the worst injustice I have ever perpetrated against myself, and I demand restitution. I don’t really care how the matter is resolved, just as long as it ends with me cruising debt-free down the highway in my bright yellow Lambo. Yes, I will be keeping the car. I’m not asking for a refund here — I’m talking about forgiveness. The debt should be wiped clean. Like it never happened. Poof. Gone.

The moral of the story is a condemnation against the privileged folks coming out of college who now believe they shouldn’t have dp pay back their student loans. Personal responsibility got our decisions used to be a hallmark of American exceptionalism. But between poor parenting, leftist propaganda, and of course good ol’ fashioned progressive indoctrination in American universities, many students are buying into the notion that the obligation they agreed to when they first went to college should be forcibly forgiven.

Democrats are latching onto this idea, as expected, by crying alongside the snowflakes and offering to forgive the debt. It’s not that they’ve earned the right or they’ve been wronged by someone who took advantage of their goodwill. They signed up for expensive colleges knowing they should have to pay back the loans, yet more they’re pretending like they were somehow made a victim.

Student debt isn’t the crisis that it’s being framed as by Democrats. It’s a bribe to get people who made poor choices in their youth to vote Democrat for the sake of financial gain. Of course, the resulting skyrocketing college prices isn’t their problem.

Brainwashed: 49.6% of Millennials and Gen Z want to live in a socialist country

Brainwashed 496 of Millennials and Gen Z want to live in a socialist country

It’s game over. All hope for the future has been lost. At least, that may be the knee-jerk reaction for some who learn that the youthful minds of America, those known as Millennials and Generation Z, are practically at 50% in their belief they want to live in a socialist country.

I call it a “belief” because those of us who’ve done our research and/or who have lived past the age of 40 clearly understand that embracing socialism and wanting to live in a socialist nation is pure lunacy. It’s hard to imagine a society so blessed as ours that has people wanting to remove those blessings by embracing the most failure-ridden type of government and economic policy the world has ever known. It’s as if they don’t see China, North Korea, or Venezuela at all.

Perhaps their thinking is that America is so great and so abundant in our riches that we can redistribute it all and everyone comes out on top other than the rich. That may be fine for them on the surface, but once you extend out the results and see the end after all the socialist dominoes fall, it’s clear to anyone with a living brain cell that such a notion is national suicide. You can’t operate in a way that generates prosperity for nearly anyone who wants it and then switch to a system that literally steals prosperity in an effort to make us all equally miserable.

But, apparently that’s the plan.

The usual suspects are all in play here as we search for who to blame for such absolutely backward thinking. The education system, particularly American universities, are leftist indoctrination centers. Most of mainstream media is pure progressive propaganda. Democrats are pushing their favorite vote-acquisition apparatus, the “everything’s free” button. Meanwhile, conservatives continue to fight for sanity in the midst of it all.

Those who support socialism willfully or unwittingly forgo their basic rights of choice. They hand over their will to the authoritarian powers of government and they expect the rest of us to do it with them. We must not. We will not. This is still America.
