The constant threat on UT Austin campus is liberalism.

Yeah you’d think a place as tolerant, diverse and peace loving as UT the terrorists would leave them be!

Don't know if this is true or not.

Local news is mentioning that one woman’s daughter at UT texted her and said her professor is continuing to teach and won’t let them leave. My Lord, girl - GET UP AND WALK OUT! Screw those liberals.

probably just a stunt to prove that these are Criminal Acts, not Terrorist Acts. Al Queda doesn’t phone it in.

I should hope this new tactic of Befriend then Betray whould backfire with all "peaceful" muslims. It makes every muslim a suspect and puts them in jeopardy.

Will the "peaceful" muslims rise up and face off against these bad actors?

Most likely not. Sheep will be sheep and they have a pretty good thing going.

NDSU and U of Texas being evacuated because of bomb threats

A bomb threat has prompted a complete evacuation Friday morning of North Dakota State University in Fargo, campus police announced in an emergency alert.

"NDSU is requiring all employees and students to leave campus by 10:15 a.m.," the alert reads. "This includes residence hall students, who, if necessary, should walk to locations off campus."

The alert added that the evacuation also covers the school's downtown buildings and agricultural facilities.

Geez, now the reporterette is interviewing a ME looking student. He said they were told to get as far away from campus as possible but then he goes on naming all the places he walked to which were ALL on campus. Some of these kids shouldn’t be allowed out of their parents’ basements.

Tower and other campus buildings are still standing. All looks quiet and peaceful. A few cars moving about. No persons visible in the area.

Also:

1. Campus shut down at North Dakota State due to unspecified threat
2. Campus shut down at Valparaiso University (NW Indiana) due to unspecified threat.
3. Yesterday, the Brownsburg Public Schools (Indiana) website was hacked.....by someone in Iraq.

Forks, this is coordinated.

Drudge has up a link to Alex Jones about a nuke facility being evacuated

“A research facility at the University of Texas in Austin that houses an active nuclear reactor has been evacuated after a man with a middle eastern accent claiming to be a member of Al-Qaeda warned authorities the campus had been booby-trapped with explosives.”

Except when they can't place it, then they may call it in beforehand.
