Taxpayer Funded Organization Hands Over Whopping $248K to Professors. The Reason Why is Beyond Ridiculous.

Published

The National Science Foundation, which is a tax-payer funded organization, had decided to hand over a whopping $248,000 to three Iowa State University professors so they can conduct a study on gender and racial microaggressions.

What’s the goal of this nonsense? To make snowflakes, oops, uh “students” feel safer at school.

You’d think folks being able to conceal carry on campus would make these kids feel safer, but whatever.

According to a Campus Reform report on Thursday, the lead researcher at the university aims to “contribute to diversifying engineering programs” and make students feel safer in the classroom.

The study, titled, “Collaborative Research: An Intersectional Perspective to Studying Microaggressions in Engineering Programs,” will cost taxpayers about $248,744 over the next four years.

Lead researcher Cristina Poleacovschi, an engineering professor, told the outlet that studying “microaggressions” is absolutely important because such “microaggressions” can harm students.

“I find microaggressions particularly interesting because they are normalized in our everyday life but have significant consequences over time,” Poleacovschi said.

“The contribution of this grant is bringing an intersectionality perspective to the concept of microaggressions where we consider the interconnected nature of race and gender,” she added.

The project will “collect stories from diverse identity groups in order to obtain a well-rounded understanding of microaggressions in engineering programs.”

Here’s a brief list outlining the four main objectives of the study:

[I]dentify gender and race microaggressions experienced by engineering students who identify as white men, white women, African-American men, African-American women, Latino men, Latina women, Asian men and Asian women.

[B]uild a gender and race microaggressions psychometric scale based on two institutional contexts

[T]est the relationship between gender and race microaggressions and success and persistence indicators (self-efficacy, institutional affiliation, psychological well-being and academic performance) in the context of a [Predominately White Institution] and a [Historically Black Colleges and Universities]

[C]ontrast and compare student experiences with gender and race microaggressions within and across the two institutional contexts.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the government is doing with the money they suck out of your paycheck before it lands in your bank account. Feel free to take a few moments and pour out a drink in memory of the money you worked hard to earn as it is snatched by Uncle Sam and cremated before your very eyes.

Do we really need any more reasons to demand a repeal of the income tax provision stuck in the Constitution?

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
