  • White female cop takes stand on anti-American NFL ‘ingrates.’ (Is forced to apologize)

    10/21/2017 10:42:18 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 45 replies
    Full original title--White female cop takes stand on anti-American NFL ‘ingrates.’ It nets her punishment nobody saw coming Last month, Michigan State Police director Colonel Kriste Kibbey Etue shared a Facebook post displaying the sentiments of literally the majority of America, but one that has gotten her into hot water with liberals in the peanut gallery. The September 24 post, which has since been removed, decries NFL players ‘taking-a-knee’ during the national anthem as “millionaire ingrates who hate America.” Etue was forced to “apologize” for the post three days later. “It was a mistake to share this message on Facebook...

    A College Republicans meeting at the University of California, Santa Cruz was taken over by protesters screaming that the group’s existence is a threat to the safety of students. Shortly after the CR meeting convened, one student entered the ground floor room of McHenry Library to ask attendees which group was assembling. After being informed that the meeting was a gathering of College Republicans, the student returned about 15-20 minutes later with company.

    Dear President Stearns (prestalk@umontana.edu):Earlier this semester, I was invited to speak at the University of Montana (UM) as part of a distinguished lecture series funded by an outside benefactor. For ten years, the series has been organized in conjunction with the school of journalism and has involved meetings with journalism students and professors. The nine previous lectures went off without a hitch. Then, they invited me to speak in February of 2018. Now, I have been banned from speaking on your campus.The decision to ban me from speaking at UM was made by Dean of Journalism Larry Abramson. In an...

    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...

    In an email to the student body last week, University of Florida President Kent Fuchs expressed befuddlement at his recent discovery that the public university must allow free speech. “If you are like me, I expect you are surprised and even shocked to learn that UF is required by law to allow Mr. Spencer to speak his racist views on our campus,” Fuchs wrote in a statement alerting students that Richard Spencer, a prominent white nationalist, will be visiting campus on October 19.

    The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) has long been a cesspool of moral rot and corruption. My longtime readers will recall that the first speech I ever gave on a college campus was at UNCG in 2004. The university had just spent $3,000 the night before to fund a speech by a porn star that referred to herself as the “Queen of Anal Sex” (I promise I am not making this up). But they refused to fund my speech on the First Amendment because it was “too offensive.” To cap it off, UNCG told the College Republicans (CRs)...

    Anti-free speech liberals have long sought to regulate and restrict Americans’ freedom of speech on the Internet. Now, their longtime champion, FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, has found her latest excuse to restrict American citizens’ free speech on their own websites, blogs, YouTube, and social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Speaking about Russian meddling in the last election at a recent meeting of the FEC (at minute 10:55), Weintraub stated: If you’re interested I’m happy to talk about it but I’m not here proposing that we reopen the entire Internet rulemaking from 2006. I think that’s something we might want...

    If it were a plague, the government would rush to quarantine the infected, as occurred during Europe's Black Death in the 14th century. An immigration debate at Seattle University School of Law is a plague of a different sort, but deadly in a different way. The victim here is the right to free speech. The Washington Free Beacon reports that Annette Clark, the dean of Seattle University's Law School, has revoked the school's sponsorship of a Federalist Society event. The reason? The proposed debate on immigration, hosted by the school's Access to Justice Institute, might be "harmful" to minority students...

    Charles Murray’s event at the University of Michigan was completely overthrown by student protesters, who occupied the auditorium and loudly interrupted Murray for 40 minutes before sauntering out of the room. The event, set to begin at 6:00 p.m. EST, was immediately shut down by protesters before Murray even was given a chance to begin as one demonstrator projected a “white supremacist” hologram above his head.

    A campus Black Lives Matter protest against an American Civil Liberties Union speaker has provoked an internal debate over free speech on the Left. Students shouted down an ACLU leader visiting the College of William and Mary in Virginia last week, preventing a discussion about free speech by chanting "liberalism is white supremacy" and "ACLU, you protect Hitler too!" for a full hour. Outrage spread as video of the college Black Lives Matter chapter's disruption circulated among shocked scholars, progressive leaders, and alumni.

    Suddenly the alt-left is very concerned about the First Amendment rights of people — some people, anyway. Specifically, George Soros et al. care about those useful idiots in shoulder pads whom they want to use in their unending attempts to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election. As for the First Amendment rights to free speech of everyone who isn’t a card-carrying fellow traveler — what rights do those deplorables have? What about the Christian bakers in Oregon who were sued out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding? Or the clerk in Kentucky...

    It’s true: SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) is alive and well and living in Utah. They organized the protest yesterday against Ben Shapiro’s speech at the University of Utah. I’m sure you all remember SDS’s most famous acolyte: Bill Ayers, Vietnam era student activist, co-founder of the Weather Underground, bomber and Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Chicago where he continued his revolutionary activity in clear sight by helping to turn education into a propaganda factory. Oh yeah, and he’s also known as Barack Hussein Obama’s ghost writer even though he was just some guy who lived...

    He’s been cheered and condemned, boosted and banned… and now he’s at ideacity to offer perspectives from the front lines of the political correctness battleground. Professor and clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson believes that no matter how controversial, we must recognize the importance of free speech – particularly on college campuses. (This is an excellent take down of the scourge of postmodernism that is responsible for the cultural rot that is destroying the western world, from multiculturalism, relativism, egalitarianism, neo-marxism, etc. He's a passionate, eloquent, courageous and intelligent speaker on a mission, and who may single handedly end up saving...

    Our college-age population consists mostly of 18- to 30-year-olds, and likewise our armed forces. I wonder whether they shared common responses to the 2016 presidential election. Many college administrators provided students with therapy dogs, play dough, coloring books, bubbles, videos of frolicking kittens and puppies, and soft music. They even canceled classes and postponed exams so that their 18- to 30-year-old snowflakes could better cope with the election results. There are numerous internet photos and videos of these youngsters screaming and in outright grief and panic. Here's my question: Were our military leaders as accommodating as college administrators? Did commanding...

    It's not exactly a secret that liberal college campuses are among the most illiberal places in America. Liberals talk a good game about diversity -- but it's not diversity of opinion they have in mind. Just ask any number of prominent conservative speakers who got shouted down when they tried to speak on campus. We know about the anecdotal evidence -- the conservatives whose talks were disrupted at University of California, Berkeley, at Middlebury in Vermont, and at Claremont McKenna College in California, to name just a few. But now we have an important broad-based study that documents just how...

    Author’s Note: All proceeds from the following column will be spent on me.Some college students know nothing about the First Amendment. I mean that literally. For example, a student recently complained to me that the police had violated his First Amendment rights by pulling him over without a warrant. First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, whatever! As annoying as the complete constitutional illiterate can be, I am perhaps more annoyed by those who have some familiarity with the First Amendment and therefore conclude that they are constitutional scholars. These semi-literate clowns email me pretty often. Just last week, one of them wrote...
