  • Conservative Student Warriors vs. the Snowflake Rebellion

    The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has never been known as a venue for self-help seminars, but in 2016 it happened. A session called Campus Crackdown focused on practical steps that conservative students could take to counter the growing epidemic of protests known as the "snowflake rebellion." Launched by these students' anxiety-ridden counterparts, posing as fragile little snowflakes unable to cope with the mere idea of viewing unsavory Halloween costumes, the movement that has been successfully covered up by politically correct campus administrators, was exposed as another left wing attempt to censor free speech. Princeton University senior and panelist Josh...

    Academics are still using the Halloween costume controversy at Yale as a teachable moment. One wonders what they will learn. "A white Ivy League lecturer has resigned following an uproar over an email she sent in October suggesting students should have the freedom to wear whatever Halloween costumes they like, including those that may be culturally insensitive," Michael D. Reagan reported in The Christian Science Monitor on December 8, 2015. "Yale University announced on Monday the lecturer, Erika Christakis, would not be working at the school during the spring semester." "Ms. Christakis's email was sent in response to [a] statement...

    A Yale lecturer who came under attack for challenging students to stand up for their right to decide what Halloween costumes to wear, even to the point of being offensive, has resigned from teaching at the college, the university said Monday. The lecturer, Erika Christakis, an expert in early childhood education, wrote an email in October suggesting that there could be negative consequences to students ceding "implied control" over Halloween costumes to institutional forces. "I wonder, and I am not trying to be provocative: Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit...

    The debate over Halloween costumes began late last month when the universitys Intercultural Affairs Committee sent an email to the student body asking students to avoid wearing “culturally unaware and insensitive” costumes that could offend minority students. It specifically advised them to steer clear of outfits that included elements like feathered headdresses, turbans or blackface. (clip) In response, Erika Christakis, a faculty member and an administrator at a student residence, wrote an email to students living in her residence hall on behalf of those she described as “frustrated” by the official advice on Halloween costumes.

    Half a century ago, student activists liberated themselves—partly, at least—from in loco parentis: the paternalistic notion that college administrators should serve as watchful guardians, restricting students’ activities and rights in order to provide a safe environment for them, the way a mother or father would. Today, students across the country are determined to undo this liberation. At Yale University, a group of aggrieved minority students have demanded the resignations of administrators who wisely rejected calls for emotional coddling. Nicholas Christakis, the master of Yale’s Silliman College, and his wife, Erika Christakis, an early childhood educator at Yale, conveyed to students...

    Hungarian photographer Pter Komka wanted to capture the Halloween asteroid that looked like a skull, as it made its closest approach to Earth. What he got instead was a striking image of a meteor streaking across the sky. Komka set up his camera gear on an equatorial mounted tripod near the medieval castle of Salg, and took several long exposure shot of the night sky, hoping to get some good enough image of the 2015 TB145 asteroid. Sadly the spooky space rock was too faint and did not appear in his photos. But what he finally captured in one photo...

    This year, 64 percent of all Americans will celebrate Halloween, but I will not be one of them. For me, it is a wretched, horrible holiday that celebrates the darkest side of humanity, and it is deeply rooted in ancient pagan traditions that would get people thrown in prison if they attempted to duplicate them today. With each passing year, the sexually suggestive costumes being marketed to our young girls become even skankier, the horror movies become darker and even more demonic, and the number of Americans that participate in occult ceremonies just continues to grow. In fact, it has...

    Fifty years since its initial release, Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" has long since entered the pantheon of holiday evergreens, the Halloween equivalent of "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" or "Frosty The Snowman." This is in itself an impressive feat. The song's chart history is equally notable: After spending the last two weeks of October, 1962 -- just in time for Halloween -- at number one on the Billboard chart, the song re-charted in 1973 and hit the Top 10 once again -- except this time, it was in early August! As weird and inexplicable as that factoid is, however,...
