Democrats Block Amendment Defunding Universities Discriminating Against Asian Americans

Senate Democrats blocked an amendment to the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act that would have stripped federal funding from universities discriminating against Asian Americans.

The amendment failed in a 49-48 vote, with all voting Republicans in favor and all voting Democrats against, it needed 60 votes to pass.

Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and John Kennedy (R-LA), who co-sponsored the amendment, released a statement addressing its rejection by Democrats, pointing out how “Democrats are only paying lip service to fight discrimination against Asian Americans.”

“In an unbelievably cynical move, Senate Democrats blocked efforts to stop discrimination against Asian Americans in higher education, where racial bias has become all too common,” the Senators said. “This amendment would bar funds from institutions that discriminate against Asian American students.”

“Despite their calls to end racism, it is clear Democrats are only paying lip service to fighting discrimination against Asian Americans and will allow targeted discrimination against them to continue at America’s universities and colleges,” they added.

On the Senate floor, Cruz pointed out that the Department of Justice “was suing Yale for its discrimination against Asian Americans until the Biden administration dismissed that lawsuit.”

“My amendment, simply put, would prohibit institutions of higher education from receiving any federal funding if they have a policy or if they engage in discrimination against Asian-Americans during recruitment, review of applications or admissions,” he added.

    They can’t block federal funding because then the universities wouldn’t have funds to promote their leftist agendas. The Dems are so hypocritical it makes me physically ill. They are sooo out of touch with reality.

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
