Kicking off a new venture where we will take a look at and highlight some of the recent examples of resistance types and the professional victims, and/or their efforts at fighting the system on behalf of “their truth.” Sharpen those hay-tossers and ignite your torch — it’s time to get outraged!
Greta Thunberg Spins Her Wheels
It has been asked for years why the press and government authorities take Greta Thunberg so seriously. Adding to this dismay is that her current effort seems to be protesting wind farms in Norway. You read that correctly – the green warrior Thunberg is against the mandated “clean” energy source of wind-generated power.
This is all over the wind farms being on land used by indigenous Sami herdsmen. It, of course, means that the green “solution” — proposed by the likes of Greta — has upset the likes of Greta and her ilk. One might modestly suggest that we remove the turbines, if for no other reason than it gets Greta to stop her protest dancing.

The always histrionic Laura Loomer has firmly aligned herself as a rabid pro-Trump voice. Her entire energy of late has been to go after Ron DeSantis. She truly appears to be appealing to Trump ardently, and one of her latest efforts involved protesting outside a book signing event where the Florida Governor was signing tomes.
Loomer had video of the severely dramatic exchange she and her people had as they protested in the parking lot.
A group of Trump supporters and members of @Villagers4Trump showed up to my rally in front of Books A Million for @GovRonDeSantis book signing and we had the police called on us. As you can hear from the video, DeSantis told the police to kick out anyone in Trump gear! pic.twitter.com/12DmGzhbnE

For starters, he was mall security and not the police. Next, they were not arrested for protesting, they were told to move off of private property and onto the public sidewalk at the same location. And, as can be seen, her “rally” appears to involve all of about eight people. Meanwhile, DeSantis was drawing a far greater number of people, a small detail avoided by what meager press coverage this controversy generated.
The saddest part of this for Loomer is the contrast of the crowd lined up outside DeSantis’s book signing against the eight person staged “Trump rally” in the parking lot.

Removing Oneself From the Pool
CNBC reports on a segment of society that appears to be an enduring exclusion in the workforce. It turns out that employers are more likely to bypass a prospective new hire if their resume features the inclusion of their pronouns. There is, of course, the likelihood of a business seeing someone making this declaration so prominent as an indicator of an employee who would be prone to special demands, treatment, and office-place activism.
After all, there is no need to include how you demand to be addressed from a pronoun perspective on your job application, so anyone vying for a new position is basically broadcasting the possibility of becoming a problem for said business unless they are trying to get a job at Hot Topic.
Resumes including ‘they/them’ pronouns are more likely to be overlooked, new report finds (via @CNBCMakeIt) https://t.co/MJFq12ksO8

Protesting in Favor of Speedbumps?
We are not sure why, but another gaggle of dolts decided to protest on another highway. They did not really get their message across, as they were left spread across the roadway.
Should cars be allowed to plow through protestors if they’re blocking the highway? 👇 pic.twitter.com/pNB4yN9KiQ

We Seem to Recall a League Set Aside for Women
As Women’s History Month kicks off, the most simple act of recognizing a woman has to be made a deeply complex issue by the woke scolds. In the NBA, the Toronto Raptors thought to honor women with a video tribute from some of the players.
Given all of about three seconds to say something, a couple of the shooters had the temerity to suggest it is great that women give birth. This fact was all that was needed for the hectoring to arrive, to such an extent that the franchise took down the video and issued an apology for the accuracy of the comments.
The Toronto Raptors issue an apology for posting this video for Women History Month:
“Our sincerest apologies to our players, our staff and our fans — we’ll work to do better today and every day after.”

The Oppression of Equestrian Riders
The New York Times really thought it had found the newest form of racial strife in highlighting the plight of black horse riders who struggle to find properly-fitted riding helmets to be worn with their chosen hairstyles. This is supposedly a roadblock to keeping more POC riders from participating in equestrian events.
The piece featured Chanel Robbins, who seemingly had no issue getting into the sport. She has been riding since she was seven — when she was given a pony — and the helmet issue only became a problem for the 27-year-old in recent years when she decided to grow her hair into lengthy dreadlocks.
When the Times learned that developing new helmets is a costly enterprise and that addressing the less than one percent in need of custom helmets could be years in the making, it caused Ms. Robbins to question why an industry was not catering to her hair change requirements. “She wondered if it was time to find a new sport, one that would make her feel like she mattered.”
For Black equestrians with natural hair, finding a helmet that fits can be virtually impossible –– another barrier to inclusion in a sport that remains overwhelmingly white. Helmet companies say there isn’t a simple fix. https://t.co/hhYIBqZV8B pic.twitter.com/Io9myQ4wKJ
