    SANFORD - A group of local Chinese-Americans took their support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to new heights on Saturday. The results were visible across much of the Triangle. An ad hoc group of local Chinese-Americans who are linked via a messaging app called WeChat – developed by Chinese company Tencent – pooled their resources to hire a single-engine plane towing a banner that proclaimed: “NC Chinese Americans for Trump.” The 180-horsepower Aviat Husky A-1B’s scheduled four-hour flight path started at the Raleigh Executive Airport in Sanford and included a flyby of Carter-Finley Stadium prior to the game between...

    A “cultural competency workshop” at the taxpayer-funded University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is assigning scores to students based on how much “white privilege” they allegedly have. The “cultural competency” workshop, which appears to be mandatory for certain students, requires participants to “examine white privilege and how it is more powerful than other types of benefits afforded by society” by completing surveys, reports Campus Reform. “I can choose blemish cover or bandages in ‘flesh’ color and have them more or less match the color of my skin,” one statement on the surveys says.

    Mayors from eighteen U.S. cities signed a letter to President Obama saying they are willing to take even more refugees than what has been proposed by the administration. “We will welcome the Syrian families to make homes and new lives in our cities,” wrote the mayors, all of whom are part of the Cities United for Immigration Action coalition. “Indeed, we are writing to say that we stand ready to work with your Administration to do much more and to urge you to increase still further the number of Syrian refugees the United States will accept for resettlement.” “This is...

    Dr. Suzanne Barakat was writing a prescription for one of her patients at San Francisco General Hospital when her phone lit up with text messages from friends sending condolences. It was Feb. 10 and Barakat, 27, was in her first year of family medicine residency. She ignored the first text, thinking it was either a mistake or a reference to family members in war-torn Syria. “I just put my head back to work,” she said. But then Barakat noticed that one of the texts mentioned her 23-year-old brother, Deah Barakat, a dental student at the University of North Carolina in...
  • Liberal Militant Atheist Murders Muslims; Conservative Christians Clearly To Blame

    The only thing more elusive than an attractive liberal feminist is a conservative Christian mass murderer, but that doesn’t keep Team Progressive from pressing on with its never-ending snipe hunt to find one. The latest search for the left’s Great White Hopeless began last week when some jerk murdered three people in Chapel Hill. Some say, it was over a parking space, in which case he should be tried and, if convicted, hanged. Others speculate that it was because these three people were Muslim, in which case he should be tried and, if convicted, hanged. Are you sensing a theme?...

    Pull up a chair and a grab a notepad while our president lies on a couch and speaks of his father, his youth in Indonesia, and the evils of western colonialism.  Yes, we are all now to be Obama’s national therapists.  The news cycle must never upset the delicate balance of his mind, lest he lose that placid demeanor and become angry or sullen. American media dutifully fulfills this purpose daily, serving up only the stuff that sustains Obama’s fragile psyche. I wrote that the Chapel Hill killings story would evaporate by today because it couldn’t be presented as a hate crime. ...

    The Palestinian government on Saturday condemned as “terrorism” the killings of three young Palestinian-Americans in North Carolina and called on U.S. authorities to include its investigators in the probe. Police have charged a neighbour with Tuesday’s shooting in the town of Chapel Hill of Deah Barakat, 23, his wife Yusor Abu-Salha, 21, and her sister Razan Abu-Salha, 19, saying the incident followed a dispute over parking. But investigators said they were also looking into whether the suspect, Craig Stephen Hicks, was motivated by hatred toward the victims because they were Muslim. Branding Hicks “an American extremist and hateful racist”, the...

    The Palestinian Authority on Saturday condemned as "terrorism" the killings of three young Palestinian-Americans in North Carolina and called on US authorities to include its investigators in the probe. Branding Hicks "an American extremist and hateful racist," the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said the incident suggested a rise in dangerous discrimination against American Muslims. "We consider it a serious indication of the growth of racism and religious extremism which is a direct threat to the lives of hundreds of thousands of American citizens who follow the Islamic faith," the ministry said in a statement. It called for "a serious investigation and...

By Adam Taylor February 13 Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks at the Foreign Ministry in Mexico City on Feb. 12. In the wake of a shooting in Chapel Hill, N.C., that left three young American Muslims dead, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan made an unusual public criticism of American domestic policy Thursday, specifically challenging President Obama. "If you stay silent when faced with an incident like this, and don't make a statement, the world will stay silent towards you," ErdoÄŸan said during a state visit to Mexico on Thursday, according...

    Rachel Maddow’s Violent Imagery Led to Chapel Hill Shooting by Thomas Ferdousi • February 11, 2015 Remember after the horrifying shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona there was a constant stream blaming Sarah Palin and the wider Tea Party for the shooting? Of course it came out that Jared Laughner was a crazed person with mental issues, but the infamous ‘Palin target map’ was blamed for the shooting rather than evidence. Now it appears that Ms. Maddow’s MSNBC show has inspired the murder of three young Muslims in North Carolina. Her show, poking fun at established religions and perpetrating...

    (CNN)—A 46-year-old man has been charged with murder in the shooting death of three Muslim students in an apartment near the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus. Police haven't said what may have compelled the accused, Craig Stephen Hicks, to allegedly carry out the attack Tuesday evening. He turned himself into police later in the night. But given the victims' religion and comments the alleged shooter apparently left on a Facebook page, many social media users wondered what role, if any, the victims' faith played. The victims were Muslims: Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23; Yusor Mohammad, 21; and Razan...

    Bart Ehrman, prolific author, New Testament scholar and former evangelical Christian, says it took him eight years to research and complete his new book, How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee. Yet, a group of fellow scholars responded in their book, How God Became Jesus, by claiming that the Christian-turned-agnostic's "sloppy" scholarship on Jesus' divinity leaves much to be desired. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, says his research reveals that Jesus, a first century Galilean, never claimed to be God, and that it...
