Liberals File Lawsuit Because Police Fitness Test Passes More Men Than Women

Published

“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.” – Winston Churchill
Our culture has become so terrified of gender distinction that we have gone out of our way to homogenize the differences between the sexes. Rather than celebrating the strength of our differences, we are condemning any and all distinction between men, and women. Much of this forced amalgamation is due to liberal philosophy. The funny thing is, the left harps on multiculturalism and extols cultural differences yet, when it comes to gender, they run in the opposite direction.
The reason the left has become increasingly intolerant of the notion of gender differences is because when things are different, they tend to be unequal. Objects that operate in binary relationships tend to complement one another in their strengths, and in their deficiencies. When one is strong in one area, the other may be weaker, and vice versa. Men and women operate in a sort of binary system, and as such, their differences complement each other. The left hates that. They want a world in which both genders are exactly the same in every way, and because that’s impossible, they make a fuss at every turn.
According to Fox News:

“The Pennsylvania State Police, one of the nation’s largest forces, is faced with ending the physical fitness tests it gives to applicants for state trooper positions or defending in court a practice that the federal government says illegally discriminates against women.”

For many years, the Pennsylvania State Police has used a vigorous fitness test to determine which candidates are fit for the job of a state police officer.

“A test begun in 2003 consisted of a 300-meter run, sit-ups, push-ups, a vertical jump and a 1.5-mile run, the lawsuit said…From 2003 to 2008, 94 percent of male applicants passed the fitness test, while 71 percent of female applicants passed. Under a similar test administered in 2009 through 2012, 98 percent of male applicants passed, while 72 percent of female applicants passed…”

The lawsuit alleges that the fitness requirement used by the Pennsylvania State Police is not necessary to the job, and because of that fact, any uneven hiring practices based on the fitness test constitutes gender discrimination.
It seems to me that to be a police officer, one would have to possess a certain amount of physical strength. There are many situations in which physical strength would be a key component of the job. If an officer has to take down a suspect, but isn’t strong enough, I would say that they are unfit for the job, regardless of their gender. But that’s not what the left wants to hear. They see a twenty percent difference in acceptance, and they call foul. But if we’re disregarding a standardized level of strength as a key component of the job of a state police officer, wouldn’t the 6% or so of men who didn’t pass have reason to file a suit as well? Isn’t that what they’re inadvertently proposing?
By filing the suit, the federal government is claiming that a standard level of fitness should not be a requirement for this particular career. They are advocating for changes to the system that would allow weaker individuals to be accepted into the force, despite their inability to compete physically with their peers. Given that, wouldn’t anyone have the right to file a lawsuit based on their gender, body type, genetics, or general lack of physique? If standards are lowered for women, they must also be lowered for smaller men, as well as men with unathletic body types. Once the standard is lowered, what’s the point of fitness at all? Why don’t we just throw out the fitness requirement altogether, and let morbidly obese people join the force?
This lawsuit isn’t about discrimination, it’s about the liberal idea that men, and women must be equal in every way, and in every situation. It doesn’t matter that a weaker officer may endanger the lives of civilians, or the lives of their partner, it only matters that the girls get to play with the boys. It’s a schoolyard notion of fairness, and it does not apply in the real world. Men, and women are good at different things, and that’s ok.
There are certainly legitimate instances of gender discrimination in the United States today—and I’m not suggesting otherwise—but in cases in which physical strength might mean the difference between life, and death, or apprehending a criminal, and not apprehending a criminal, there is no discrimination, there is simply reality.

Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner Abandon Donald Trump in Election Fraud Fight

The rats have already jumped ship and are swimming away as quickly as they can and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are leading the exodus.

Published

The rats have already jumped ship and are swimming away as quickly as they can and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are leading the exodus.

According to journalist Jonathan Swan, Jared and Ivanka have distanced themselves from President Trump’s election fraud fight as they look to crafting the next stage of their political careers.

Perhaps Kushner did lend a hand in the crafting of Trump’s Middle Eastern peace success, but he has done little else while in Washington. And Ivanka has done even less. In fact, we’ll see Ivanka dive to the far left in the next few years. She’s already shown that in her many statements over the years.

If conservatives know what is good for them, they’ll jump Jared and Ivanka’s ship, too. These two are not conservative and will be no vessel for Americanism going forward. The only reason they weren’t jettisoned years ago is because they are family.

Still, according to Swan and Byron York, these inside snipers are aiming at Trump’s election fraud lawyers including Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, and not the president. But inference is clear. They mean to say that Trump is over.

If Donald Trump’s presidency is over, we also must be sure to bury Ivanka and Jared at the same time. These two have always been enemies inside the walls.

“There is no controversy about my son. It’s all a lie. It’s a flat lie because the president has nothing else to run on. If you noticed, while the American people are talking about what’s happening to their families; he has no plan, and at the debate, he has no plan. Everything from ‘The Wall Street Journal,’ every other major news outlet has said what he’s saying is simply not true about my son.”

Van Jones Praises Trump, ‘Doesn’t Get Enough Credit’ For ‘Good Stuff He Has Done For Black Community’

Furious liberals demand that CNN fire Van Jones for saying Trump ‘doesn’t get credit’ for the ‘good things’ he has done for the black community.

“I think it’s really unfortunate because Donald Trump, and I get beat up by liberals every time I say it but I keep saying it, he has done good stuff for the Black community,” Jones said. “Opportunity Zone stuff, Black college stuff, I worked with him on criminal stuff, I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formally incarcerated, in the White House, embraced them, treated them well. There is a side to Donald Trump that I think he does not get enough credit for.”

Daily Mail:

Van Jones, the former Obama administration official and current CNN commentator, said on Friday that President Trump ‘doesn’t get credit’ for the ‘good things’ he has done for African Americans, prompting Twitter users to call for his firing.

Jones made the comment while providing on-air analysis during Jake Tapper’s daily CNN broadcast on Friday.

Tapper began the segment by panning Trump’s comment during Thursday’s debate in which the president said he had done more for black Americans than any of his predecessors aside from Abraham Lincoln.

The CNN host, who mentioned Lyndon Johnson’s signing into law of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as an example of a president who did more for African Americans than Trump, then played a clip from the debate. More

Van Jones is absolutely correct. I’m no a fan of  him, but regardless we could use more of this from both sides. Nothing wrong with acknowledging good work. The true measure of a person’s belief on an issue is in their actions and not what they say. President Trump has done most of what he said he would even under the most extreme of opposition.

Letter Threatens To Burn Homes Of New Hampshire Trump Supporters

“Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election.”

President Trump supporters in two small New England cities have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

“Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy.”

TDW:

Someone is sending letters to Trump supporters in New Hampshire, threatening to burn down their homes if President Trump loses the presidential election but will not concede defeat.

As WMUR reported, the letter, which Milford police stated has been sent to various homes in the town displaying support for the president.

[…]

Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted.

Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” More

So instead of trying to talk to people to earn their vote they would rather threaten and scare people.  These people who did this have no idea who they are screwing with. Live Free or Die and if pressured, we are ready to defend ourselves and our homes.

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News after the vice presidential debate last night that Vice President Mike Pence was the winner of the debate, saying that voters were turned off by Kamala Harris’ “condescending” and “abrasive” attitude toward Mike Pence.

“The complaint about Kamala Harris was that she was abrasive and condescending,” said Frank Luntz, who analyzed reactions from voters in various swing states. “The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but [he was] vice presidential, or presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance — which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy, they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night.”

Frank Luntz said that voters disliked the candidates dodging questions but overall they were much happier with the way the debate went vs. the way the first debate went.

Frank Luntz said that while voters were frustrated with the vice president for repeatedly running over his allotted time, “Harris’ reactions to Pence — the smiling, the smirking, the scowling’ left them far ‘angrier’ with her performance,” Fox News reported.

Luntz said that voters were “more agitated with Kamala’s presentation than they were with Mike Pence.”

Twitter has a few thoughts:

Trump Vows Immediate $1,200 Check To Americans If Pelosi Moves Bill

Democrats and Republicans have been quarreling for months over another stimulus bill to help millions of Americans struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic. But the president has a plan to cut through all their red tape.

“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter this morning.

Trump had another message for Pelosi: “Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!”

As the leader of the Democrats in the House, Nancy Pelosi could recommend that her caucus to support such a bill, which likely would move quickly through the Republican-controlled Senate and make it to Trump’s desk in the Oval Office for his signature.

On The View today, Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s hard to see any clear sane path on what he’s doing but the fact is, he saw the political downside of his statement of walking away from the negotiations …he’s rebounding from a terrible mistake he made yesterday and the Republicans in Congress are going down the drain with him on that.”

“But I will say this, it is really important for us to come to this agreement. When the president just popped off and made that announcement without even informing us that that was the case, he insulted the Constitution of the United States.”

Nancy is the most powerful woman in the world? Keep on dreaming Joy Behar! How fitting… The biggest hypocrite in the country on the most hypocritical show on TV.
