    Accuracy in Academia ^ | May 24, 2016 | Alex Nitzberg
    The Black Lives Matter movement is a tool used by the left to maintain their "…90 percent plus hold on the black political electorate," according to Colonel Allen West. "I think that their whole existence is just a liberal progressive socialist movement to make sure that they keep the black community on the 21st century economic plantation that’s been created by the left." While the organization purports to protest societal discrimination and violence against black Americans, Colonel West exposed the movement's hypocrisy by noting its profound silence on a multitude of issues wreaking havoc in black communities. "If it really...

    The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with "fairness and respect."

    A display created by Dartmouth College Republicans to honor fallen police officers was torn down by Black Lives Matter activists and replaced with a hateful message about honoring the "perpetrators" of anti-black violence. The Republicans reserved space on the campus bulletin board and followed all school regulations. But the BLM radicals removed the display without permission, saying that it was "offensive" to blacks and "white supremacist." Daily Caller: At the bottom, the display said in big letters, “BLUE LIVES MATTER.” This last part of the display appears to have outraged Black Lives Matter supporters at Dartmouth, several of whom vocally...

    Oil and gas industry groups on Thursday sued federal agencies over revisions to land management plans in Colorado and other western states to protect the greater sage-grouse. The Western Energy Alliance and the North Dakota Petroleum Council filed the suit in North Dakota, saying the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service failed to follow proper procedures for public involvement in adopting the land use plan amendments. They also say the plans ignore sound science and will hurt western economies. Plan revisions being challenged include ones in northwest Colorado, where greater sage-grouse habitat substantially overlaps with oil and gas...

    House Democrats on Tuesday released letters from Pentagon officials that they said should put an end to “silly speculation” generated by Republicans that protecting a bird known as the greater sage-grouse could hamstring the U.S. military. They're hoping the new information persuades lawmakers to oppose a GOP provision in the annual defense policy bill that would block the Obama administration from protecting the sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act for 10 years. The measure also would prevent implementation of land-use plans by the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to conserve the sage-grouse and its habitat. …

    Violence has gotten a lot of attention in the 2016 presidential race — from the kicking and punching of protestors at Trump’s rallies to incitements of violence against Muslim refugees and Mexican immigrants to promises by various candidates to use overwhelming military force to destroy the Islamic State. But nonviolent resistance — that is, when unarmed civilians use a coordinated set of actions, such as protests, strikes, and noncooperation to directly confront opponents without harming or threatening to harm them — has actually been incredibly influential in this election. On both the left and the right, popular movements have brought...

The University of Missouri (Mizzou) was ground zero for Black Lives Matter’s academic crusade and now the university is paying the price for enabling the black supremacist movement.

Those who crusaded for supposed social justice went so far as to demand segregation for whites by demanding the creation of a “black-only healing space” where...

The hubbub began after Bill Clinton ran into opposition from Black Lives Matter activists at one of his speeches.

After the speaker made claims of Donald Trump’s racism, the woman politely told the speaker that “she has seen black people speaking at Trump events.”After challenging the speaker, the woman claims that several people in the room...

    Protesters blocked traffic and light rail trains Monday afternoon as the Twins home opener was getting underway at Target Field. The activists from Black Lives Matter Minneapolis and Catholic Workers staged demonstrations around the stadium — one blocking traffic on N. 7th Street and Glenwood Avenue and another on the light rail tracks near the Target Field Station. There were about 30 activists participating in each demonstration. The gathering on N. 7th Street ended when demonstrators left less than 15 minutes after it began.

    A new poll finds that more than one-third of Americans say they worry “a great deal” about the current state of race relations in the United States, the highest number in the poll’s 15-year span. Thirty-five percent of Americans in Monday’s Gallup survey said they are extremely worried about the state of race relations, up from 28 percent in 2015. That number is also up by more than 100 percent since 2014, when 17 percent of Americans said they were greatly worried about racial strife in America. Although the numbers fluctuated in the teens during President Obama’s first six years...

    Rural Nevadans suing to block the Obama administration's sage-grouse protections say a trail of internal government documents shows politics was the driving force behind a pre-determined policy that flies in the face of its experts' own best science.

    That Facebook is made up of employees which, just like the rest of society, represent America at large is something which can't be denied. To me, per media coverage afforded Zuckerberg in blanketing those who disagree with the tagline Black Lives Matter, the assumption is being made that Mark is either in the majority viewpoint or that Facebook's staff exists in a vacuum. Both assertions couldn't be further from the truth. Hence why publicly available data, which has been widely distributed online, is critical in establishing the argument that these workers weren't "fringe" activists in any way. Judging by polling...

    In a Philadelphia rally for Hillary’s presidential campaign yesterday, Bill Clinton left the reservation for Democrats, rebuking #BlackLivesMatter demonstrators who repeatedly interrupted him, protesting the crime bill he signed into law (and that Hillary had campaigned for). Here is a short version of the now famous confrontation, in which he says to the BLMers, "You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. Tell the truth." And he even defends his welfare reforms.
