Washington State voters rejected an affirmative action initiative on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.

This initiative, I-1000,  would have restored affirmative action in public college admissions.

According to Inside Higher Ed, “The latest vote totals are 48.23 percent in favor of restoring affirmative action, and 51.77 opposed.”

Back in 1998, voter-approved I-200 banned the consideration of racial and ethnic preferences in 1998, however the Washington State Legislature voted earlier this year to lift the ban. This subsequently led to a petition drive to put the issue on the ballot.

Based on state election results, the measure passed in only three of the state’s counties and lost by wide margins in the more rural counties.

Groups like Washington Asians for Equality played a big role in gathering enough signatures  to challenge I-1000 via popular referenda.

This result marked a big win for those who believe in meritocracy and are not fixated in politically correct sub-divisions of racial groups.

Affirmative action is a policy that greatly expands the administrative state and sows racial tension even more by using public administration to benefit certain groups at the expense of others.

NYC Mayor is Pushing Synagogues to Shut Down

Published

on

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Jewish community that synagogues that continue to not comply with Wuhan virus regulations by holding services will be permanently closed.

According to The Jerusalem Post, the majority of synagogues have closed in compliance with city orders aimed stopping the spread of Wuhan Virus by limiting social gatherings.

“We’ve had extraordinary, across the board rabbinical support from all the different elements of the Jewish community and the same is true of other faiths as well,” de Blasio said during his March 27, 2020 news briefing, according to The Jewish Press.

There are still some synagogues holding minyanim, social gatherings of 10 worshipers or more, to carry out prayer services.

“A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues, are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” de Blasio stated.

“I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church, and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he admonished. However, he admitted that he does not “say this with joy.”

“I understand how important people’s faiths are to them, and we need our faith in this time of crisis. But we do not need gatherings that will endanger people.”

The mayor asked religious citizens who witnesses services taking place to talk with the congregation’s officials and demand they cease services. If that is not enough, the authorities may “need to take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently.”
