  • College Republicans taunted with 'KKK' flyers in windows

    The first Amherst College Republicans meeting of the year was targeted by flyers taped to the windows of the meeting space saying, “THIS IS OUR CAMPUS, NOT THE KLAN’S.” The group claims on its Facebook page that “while the flyers are related to another incident on campus that happened September 5, the deliberate placement of the text facing the room where it was known an ACR meeting was occurring leads us to suppose this is an accusation of ACR being connected to the KKK.”

    Princeton University professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor issued multiple vile attacks against President Donald Trump in her May 20 commencement speech at Hampshire College, a private liberal arts college in Amherst, Massachusetts. Taylor accused Trump of being a “racist, sexist megalomaniac.” “The president of the United States, the most powerful politician in the world, is a racist, sexist megalomaniac,” Taylor said, according to a report by Campus Reform reporter Anthony Gockowski. “It’s not a benign observation, but has meant tragic consequences for many people in our country—from terror-inducing raids in the communities of undocumented immigrants to his disparaging of refugees in search...

    The Obama administration’s disdain for the rule of law continues to reverberate. One way is its Title IX madness, which has caught numerous colleges and universities in its web. Among them is Amherst College, which now faces a lawsuit brought by a student who makes a compelling case that he was wrongfully expelled. The facts revolve around a drunken hookup between two students and the woman’s subsequent efforts at covering up her more than willing participation by blaming the male student and accusing him of assault. Amherst’s administration was equally complicit, however, pronouncing the man guilty on flimsy and incomplete...

    The Massachusetts college that drew nationwide criticism when it stopped flying the U.S. flag on campus following the presidential election says Old Glory is back up. Hampshire College in Amherst returned the flag to full staff on Friday. The flag was lowered to half-staff after the Nov. 8 election. The flag was found burned on Veterans Day and the college decided to take down all campus flags on Nov. 18. The decision drew widespread condemnation and a protest by veterans groups and their supporters outside campus.

    AMHERST, N.Y. -- A suspected meth lab was uncovered in the heart of Amherst, N.Y. Police believe a culvert is how the suspect or suspects got underground, WKBW-TV reports. All of it was happening in a very busy section; the suspected meth lab was found underneath a Walmart. Covered head to toe in protective gear, members of the state police hazmat team descended into a manhole, busting what they call a suspected underground meth lab. One by one, police reeled in buckets of evidence, including pop bottles, suspected methamphedamine, spray paint cans and other meth-making materials. But perhaps the most...

  • The One Weird Trait That Predicts Whether You’re a Trump Supporter

    f I asked you what most defines Donald Trump supporters, what would you say? They’re white? They’re poor? They’re uneducated? You’d be wrong. In fact, I’ve found a single statistically significant variable predicts whether a voter supports Trump—and it’s not race, income or education levels: It’s authoritarianism. That’s right, Trump’s electoral strength—and his staying power—have been buoyed, above all, by Americans with authoritarian inclinations. And because of the prevalence of authoritarians in the American electorate, among Democrats as well as Republicans, it’s very possible that Trump’s fan base will continue to grow. My finding is the result of a national...
  • Authoritarian Leftist "Activists" Demand The End Of Free Speech, Extensive Re-Education

    AMHERST, Mass. (INTELLIHUB) — Hard left authoritarians at Amherst College have issued a series of demands, under the threat of civil disobedience, that include the complete end of free speech on campus as well as extensive re-education for offenders. The demands, issued in support of the so-called uprising at the University of Missouri, read like a literal fascist manifesto and are conclusive proof that the mainstream media supported protests at multiple colleges over the last few weeks are not about racial equality but rather are about totally and completely shutting down the speech of anyone who disagrees with the opinions...

    Student protesters at Amherst College issued a list of demands Thursday which include disciplinary action and mandatory "racial and cultural competency" training for students behind a series of signs on campus that lamented the death of free speech. The group Amherst Uprising is demanding that university President Biddy Martin issue a statement saying the university does "not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the 'All Lives Matter' posters, and the 'Free Speech' posters," which charged that the First Amendment was the "true victim" of the University of Missouri protests, The Daily Beast reported. The students demanded that the people...

    Protesters want the school president to denounce the actions of students who displayed "All Lives Matter" and "Free Speech" posters. They also demand he warn the student body that in the future "racially insensitive" speech would merit disciplinary actions. Students at Amherst College are demanding that the school's president accede to a list of demands that would effectively eliminate free speech on campus. The demands, which were presented in person Thursday evening to college President Biddy Martin, are outlined in a letter published by Amherst Soul, which also notes that the students expect action to be initiated within "24-48 hours"...

    Boston Globe ^ | MAY 29, 2015 | Walter V. Robinson
    A former Amherst College student has filed a lawsuit claiming he was falsely accused of rape, not given a fair investigation by college officials, and denied justice, even after he presented the college with text messages he said indicated he was innocent. The lawsuit, filed Friday in US District Court in Boston, names the prestigious Western Massachusetts institution as a defendant, as well as a number of college officials. The plaintiff’s name is listed only as “John Doe.” In the fall of his senior year, the suit alleges, he was falsely accused in October 2013 of having committed rape when...

    AMHERST, Mass. — The University of Massachusetts at Amherst has banned Iranian nationals from admission to certain graduate programs in a move that school officials say aligns its policy with U.S. sanctions against Iran. The university will no longer admit students from Iran to some programs in engineering and natural sciences.

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | May 16, 2014 | John K. Wilson
    Amherst College, which banned fraternities and sororities in 1984, has now taken this an alarming step further: starting July 1, any students participating in an unofficial fraternity or sorority will be punished, and could be expelled. A college has the right to ban fraternities only in the sense of refusing to recognize gender-biased exclusive social groups as official student organizations. When it seeks to punish students for being members of off-campus groups of any kind, as Amherst is doing, it is violating student rights. I happen to agree with “banning” most fraternities and sororities. Registered student groups should not have...

Hours after an outpouring of support for gay basketball player Derrick Gordon had sent a message that tolerance reigns in Massachusetts, John Ashcroft came to Amherst on Wednesday. The former attorney general of President George W. Bush spent his University of Massachusetts visit fending off hecklers who called him a hyprocrite and a war criminal among other things. I am not here to defend Ashcroft. I am here to dispute hypocrisy, a label that becomes attached to university communities such as UMass when freedom of speech and opinion is treated as...

    Town Meeting member Larry Kelley Monday night plans to again ask the Select Board to fly the town’s 29 commemorative American flags to mark the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The Select Board amended its commemorative flag policy to allow the flags to fly on the light posts and utility poles every five years to mark the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 at the Pentagon, World Trade Center and in Pennsylvania, but Kelley believes they should be flown every year so people remember. He said the thousands of students coming to town to school were just six...

    AMHERST, N.Y. - A state lawmaker is calling for an investigation into how an Amherst man's guns were taken away by mistake. State Assemblyman Ray Walter says when he saw the news coverage of David Lewis' case, he knew immediately something was "seriously wrong." Walter wants some answers, when he meets face-to-face with the State Police Superintendent in Albany next Tuesday. Lewis said, "It's been very embarrassing. I feel like I've been let down, and my privacy's been invaded." Lewis was forced to turn in his seven handguns and stripped of his pistol permit. After State Police in Albany identified...
