  • Jaw Dropping – The Washington Post Attacks Reverend Billy Graham Hours After He Dies…

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 2/21/2018 | SUNDANCE
    In 2012 the DNC denounced Jesus Christ three times during their convention. Until today that stood as one of the most alarming public representations of how the Democrats hate Christianity. The Washington Post just took that hatred one step further…. (image of WAPO's shameful "analysis) I cannot even begin to fathom the level of institutional evil and hatred it would take for this story to work its way through the editorial process of a national American publication and not encounter anyone who would stop them in their tracks. Seriously, no words. Just unreal.

    “Teen Vogue” Columnist Lauren Duca responded to news of Rev. Billy Graham’s death by telling him to, “Have fun in hell, bitch.” Taking to Twitter after news broke that the world-renowned and beloved evangelist had died Wednesday at age 99, Duca mocked Graham’s longevity and hurled her insult: “The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time. Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch.” After receiving backlash on Twitter for her hateful irreverence, Duca doubled-down on her comment, declaring that “Respecting the dead” only applies to people who weren’t evil pieces of sh*t while they were...

    “Anthropology 212: Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy, and Pornography,” a course on freedom of expression at Princeton University has been “reluctantly” cancelled, Professor Lawrence Rosen informed his students in an email obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD. Rosen’s email, sent at 2:07 p.m. on February 12, went on to say “I think it only fair that you be free, before too much of the semester has passed, to move ahead in another course of your choosing.” Last week Prof. Rosen received national attention for using the N-word in this class on freedom of expression. Some students walked out and protested the...

  • Marianne Williamson asked white people to apologize. She got it right. (Oh no she didn't)

    Marianne Williamson walked to the middle of the stage, paused for a second, then she asked all the black people to stand. The New York Times best-selling author, internationally known spiritual teacher and native Houstonian was in town recently for her "Love America Tour" at Unity of Houston. She urged the 200 of us from our seats. She then instructed a white person to hold the hand of a black person standing. A white woman and a teenage girl who looked to be mother and daughter in the row behind me took my hand and arm. Williamson then told the...

    One of my hopes for the New Year is that more people will find the courage to ignore or even speak up against cultural and moral insanity instead of going along with it. It’s difficult in many circumstances, such as working in a large corporation with “diversity” brainwashing sessions. Not everyone can afford to ask a question and earn an instant pink slip, especially those with dependents. But we don’t have to become cheerleaders for things that violate our beliefs. In Hans Christian Andersen’s The Emperor’s New Clothes, a young boy is the only person brave enough to point out...

Here’s the story from Tundra Tabloids: Finland: Police investigate gay politician once again for posting about Islam Sebastian Tynkkynen (FB) is a Finnish politician who has been at the forefront in creating awareness about Islamization in Finland. He had been investigated earlier by a heavily politicized Finnish police department over his Facebook postings in August of 2016, and went to trial almost exactly a year ago today, and was eventually found guilty of...

    Social-justice warriors dominate a leading tech company.Let’s ponder a disturbing question: What if the crisis of free speech on college campuses, with their often extreme intolerance for conservative points of view, represents the high point for free expression in a student’s life? In other words, what if the “real world” is more repressive, more ignorant, and more punitive toward dissenting speech? What if entire corporations adopt the ideologies and norms of the most ruthless campus social-justice warriors, ruining careers and depriving employees of their livelihoods when those employees dissent from the dominant ideology? In other words, what if the rest...

    A new law meant to curtail hate speech on social media in Germany is stifling free speech and making martyrs out of anti-immigrant politicians whose posts are deleted, the top-selling Bild newspaper said on Thursday. The law which took effect on Jan. 1 can impose fines of up to 50 million euros ($60 million) on sites that fail to remove hate speech promptly. Twitter has deleted anti-Muslim and anti-migrant posts by the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) and blocked a satirical account that parodied Islamophobia. "Please spare us the thought police!" read a headline in Wednesday's Bild above an article...

    When students (and others) disrupt events where speakers are trying to make arguments they dislike, they always say that their conduct is justified. Most commonly, the disrupters maintain that they are merely preventing “hate speech,” which allegedly doesn’t enjoy the protection of the First Amendment. Therefore, they are perfectly free to keep speakers they oppose from being heard. In fact, they say they’re acting righteously, by protecting against speech that supposedly leads to violence or oppression. Student zealots, such as those who prevented University of Oregon president Michael Schill from giving a speech, believe that. So, evidently, do some college...

    MONTGOMERY, Alabama, January 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The hashtag “#merrychristmas” topped the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) list of trending hashtags on Twitter that it considers to be promoting “hate.” On December 24, the #merrychristmas hashtag had the # 2 ranking on SPLC’s “Hate Tracker” list. Then on Christmas Day, #merrychristmas was ranked # 1, and on December 26, it ranked # 3. Along with “Merry Christmas” the SPLC Hate Tracker website recently listed #christmas, #merrychristmaseve and #jesus in its top trends used by what it terms “far-right Twitter users.” According to SPLC, the Twitter accounts they monitor for...

    The government's theory would equally criminalize insulting posts on a NRA page, or on a pro-Trump organization's page, or on a Communist Party page. In September 2016, Mark Feigin posted five insulting comments on the Islamic Center of Southern California's Facebook page (before he was finally blocked by the ICSC from commenting): • "THE TERROR HIKE ... SOUNDS LIKE FUN" (written in response to the Center's "Sunset Hike" announcement). • "THE MORE MUSLIMS WE ALLOW INTO AMERICA THE MORE TERROR WE WILL SEE." • "PRACTICING ISLAM CAN SLOW OR EVEN REVERSE THE PROCESS OF HUMAN EVOLUTION." • "Islam is dangerous...

    BBC News ^ | 31 December 2017
    Germany is set to start enforcing a law that demands social media sites move quickly to remove hate speech, fake news and illegal material. Sites that do not remove “obviously illegal” posts could face fines of up to €50 million (Ł44.3 million; $60 million). The law gives the networks 24 hours to act after they have been told about lawbreaking material. Social networks and media sites with more than two million members will fall under the law’s provisions. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube will be the law’s main focus, but it is also likely to be applied to Reddit, Tumblr and...

    <p>Wisconsin’s supreme court can soon right a flagrant wrong stemming from events set in motion in 2014 at Milwaukee’s Marquette University by Cheryl Abbate. Although just a graduate student, she already had a precocious aptitude for academic nastiness.</p> <p>On October 8, in an undergraduate course she was teaching on ethics, when the subject of same-sex marriage arose there was no debate because, a student said, Abbate insisted that there could be no defensible opposition to this. (Marquette is a Jesuit school.) After class, the student told her that he opposed same-sex marriage and her discouraging of debate about it. She replied (he recorded their interaction) that “there are some opinions that are not appropriate that are harmful . . . do you know whether anyone in the class is homosexual? . . . In this class homophobic comments . . . will not be tolerated.” The student’s appeals to Abbate’s superiors were unavailing (the chairman of her philosophy department referred to the student as an “insulin [sic] little twerp”), so he gave John C. McAdams his recording of Abbate rebuffing him.</p>

You can see the thread here, but it's so good I'm going to preserve it for posterity in this post - because this is the sort of thing that gets people banned from Twitter these days. 1. Tamarisk trees in Palm Springs, California. 2. The ice cream truck song. 3. Credit scores. 4. Car insurance. 5. Crime statistics. 6. Halloween costumes. 7. Calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." 8. Most of the better Disney movies. 9. Dr. Seuss. 10. White flight. 11....

    At Today’s Universities, Philosophy Is The Handmaid Of Political Correctness University philosophy departments are supposed to be centers of open inquiry and rigorous analysis. What happens when that comes up against political correctness? By Robert Tracinski “Political Correctness Enforced on College Campus” is pretty much a “Dog Bites Man” story these days, but I just came across a new entry in the genre that is particularly interesting because it happened in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Philosophy departments are, in theory, supposed to be centers of open inquiry and rigorous analysis, where received...

    Veterans group claims motto ‘symbolizes the agency’s resistance to gender equity’The VA is defending its motto this week against charges that it “symbolizes​ ​the agency’s​ ​resistance​ ​to​ ​gender​ ​equity.” A portion of Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address in 1865 has been deemed “sexist” as a VA motto by the nonprofit organization Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. The group wrote a letter to VA Secretary David Shulkin this week demanding a change, which it says would “better support women.” The motto in question, in place since 1959, reads: “To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for...

    This charade is really about is California Democrats and the left conflating a spurious rise in "racial strife" to the 2016 presidential campaign and President Donald Trump Last week the California State Senate held the second committee hearing in two weeks on “hate speech” couched as “Violent Protests and Police Response.” Democrats were once again seeking approval for legislation on thought crimes. This is a dangerous path as countries without a First Amendment have demonstrated. Writer Andrew Sullivan says, “writers and speakers are now routinely hauled into court for hurting someone’s feelings or violating some new PC edict. In Canada,...

    A Boise State University professor recently learned what happens when you challenge left-wing social narratives on college campuses. Scott Yenor, a tenured professor, has been under siege on campus after publishing articles with The Heritage Foundation and The Daily Signal about feminism and the transgender movement. In those articles, Yenor explained the similarity in philosophy between the early feminists and modern transgender movement and how they aim at undermining traditional family values. He wrote in a Daily Signal article on Aug. 2:
