    Tampon brand Tampax sparked a firestorm on social media after it said that “not all people with periods are women.” The company, owned by Procter & Gamble, shared the message on Sept. 15, but it has recently sparked fierce debate and gone viral — with some bashing the company for alienating biological women. SNIP “This ad is misogynistic and advocates erasing women. So goodbye 4ever!!!” one critic wrote. Others slammed the message as “anti-woman.”

    Democrats faced intense backlash on Monday over a political stunt that they pulled in an attempt to show solidarity with the black community over death of George Floyd. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), and other top Democrats took at knee at Capitol Hill while wearing Kente cloth, which, as noted by The Washington Post, “comes from Ghana, where people wear it to show patriotism or celebrate a special occasion.” The photo-op moment for Democrats quickly went viral online — but not in a good way, as numerous people from the black community mocked and...
  • A Muslim Syrian Refugee Plotted a Black Church Massacre

    “The best news is when you call get ready for jihad,” Mustafa Mousab Alowemer wrote in a public housing project in Pittsburgh. “I will spill my blood for the victory of my religion.” Northview Heights, the low-income housing project, is 90% African-American. Or at least it was. Then a flood of Syrian Muslim refugees showed up. Obama had promised to admit 10,000 Syrian migrants in 2016. The terrorist who plotted a massacre at a black church was one of them. The Alowemer clan arrived at JFK airport in New York City. The same airport through which other terror refugees, including...

    A long forgotten video clip from ABC's "The View" resurfaced on Wednesday that showed co-host Joy Behar trying to explain a Halloween costume from when she was younger. The clip was shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine. Behar was seen discussing a New York Times op-ed about the resurgence of curly hair during the show in 2016. Behar showed her colleagues and the audience a picture of herself with curly hair when she was 29 years old. The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked, "Joy, are you black?"
  • Longtime Stanford scholar quits teaching American Indian course after PC mob mau-maus(T)

    So the P.C. mob has gotten itself another one, at Stanford, where a longtime scholar of American Indian culture has cut his course after politically correct students hollered about "cultural appropriation." Apparently, you can't even discuss another culture without being accused of that. In this case, it's obvious what the implications are: a loss of scholarship and knowledge for Stanford, which is now diminished. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley writes: For 50 years, Stanford Professor Professor [sic] Kenneth Fields has taught the course "American Indian Mythology, Legend and Lore," Professor Fields has agreed to stop teaching the course. A nationally recognized...

    I first realized something in America was changing back in November 2015. My family was on vacation in New Zealand to visit my sister who was studying abroad there. A Republican candidate for president, Donald J. Trump, was gaining in popularity on the right. Politics came up. I defended the Donald and I came under attack from my sibling. I became far too defensive. Things got heated and personal and have in the intermittent months since then. We haven’t talked politics for quite some time now. With Trump’s rise to the White House, things appear to have gotten only more...

    I suppose you can keep the fight going indefinitely if you refuse to accept reality. But to the rest of us it looks like all the challenges filed in the Georgia and Florida elections were paper tigers.So when you lose despite getting all the votes money can buy perhaps you should just concede gracefully instead of accusing your opponent of racism and voter suppression.But for now allow me to turn to more important news: the latest Trump-is-a-racist allegation-not-based-on-his anti-migrating-horde position. This is a good one that I’m sure will stick: awarding a Presidential Medal of Freedom to Elvis Presley was...

    Jasmin Kaur wrote her poem “her voice” in December 2016. At a time predating the official start of the Trump presidency, her words were meant as a guiding principle for Sikh women like her, who struggle against racism and the feeling of invisibility that accompanies it. In her poem, she writes: Scream, So that one day a hundred years from now Another sister will not have to dry her tears Wondering where in history she lost her voice But in an ironic turn, last week Kaur saw her poem go viral in the days following Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to...

    There is no doubt that the internet is filled with enormous mobs of left-wing ideologues waiting to display their supposed moral superiority. Whenever someone says or does something that may be received as remotely offensive, leftists show their “tolerance” and “open-mindedness” by berating them online. It’s not a couple leftists, or hundreds of leftists. It’s millions. We recently saw another example of this when Keziah Daum, a high school senior, decided to wear a Chinese qipao dress to her prom. The mob of outraged leftists jumped on Keziah after this tweet from Jeremy Lam:

    If you’re a normal human being you likely don’t pay very close attention to the way other people, especially strangers, dress, or what they eat, or the things they like. You’re too busy leading your life to care, plus you’re a decent human being not interested in butting into the harmless choices other people make – live and let live, you likely say. But “woke” liberals are anything but normal people. (I just wrote a book about these people.)The average “woke” liberal – a term that refers to the most sensitive and aware liberals (think of hypersensitive and obnoxious having...

    Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old from Utah in the United States, who has no Chinese roots, was accused of “cultural appropriation” after posting photographs on Twitter that featured her in a traditional Chinese qipao, or cheongsam. The dress symbolised a silent protest to promote gender equality after the fall of the dynasties and the beginning of the republican period in the early 1900s, and was worn during the 1919 reformist May Fourth Movement.

    Last night I watched “Paper Heads,” a 1995 documentary about Communism in what was then Czechoslovakia. It mixed propaganda films from the regime with testimony from people who had been tortured in communist prisons, or whose relatives had been abused in some way by the state. It was a crude but very powerful film. All that talk about brotherhood and shared prosperity and justice concealed cruelty, injustice, and murder of those who stood between the Party and Paradise. The most chilling part of the film, at least to me, were the clips of the 1950s show trials. The rhetoric from...

    Jordan Peterson, Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, speaks with The Epoch Times about Postmodernism and Cultural Marxism. Communism is estimated to have killed at least 100 million people, yet its crimes have not been fully compiled and its ideology still persists. The Epoch Times seeks to expose the history and beliefs of this movement, which has been a source of tyranny and destruction since it emerged.

    It’s the deliberate dismantling of Western civilization in the attempt to remake it into a global Orwellian Socialist technocracy. It used to be that if your country fell under the Marxist bootheel, you could escape here, as my father-in-law did, and as many others have. It used to be that as it crept into America, you could leave the blue state for a red state. You could stay a step ahead of the Cultural Borg. Now, there’s really nowhere left to go. The Cultural Borg, meanwhile, continue marching on. And they are showing signs of adapting to Trump’s weaponry. I...

UNH spokesman Erika Mantz said Wednesday that no disciplinary action against the sorority sisters has been taken, but the incident is under review. “We believe strongly in the right to free speech as recognized by the First Amendment, and we believe equally in the right of every member of our community to feel safe and respected.
