We can feel great sympathy for the victims, but it is also fair to point out that some of the policies advocated by said victims helped contribute to this tragedy. And the fact is that a large number of Ohio State faculty and students are strongly pro-Islamic immigration

It is possible to claim that Jews control the media and conspire to twist the international financial system to their own benefit, to say that Jews are responsible for black slavery and today’s...

Trump’s campaign and his surprise victory has undoubtedly energized extreme elements.

    Universities across America actively advance the social revolution to redefine gender and normalize all permutations of sexual proclivity. At Rutgers University, The Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities asserts that "Gender identity is the inward sense of being man, woman, both, neither, or any other gender(s). This identity is not visible. Gender expression is an outward means of expressing a person’s gender and can include mannerisms, clothing, hair, and other modes of expression. While gender expression is often visible, it is not necessarily an indicator of a person's identity. The only way to know a person’s gender is...

    The University of Texas at Austin will ignore demands from student officials to “disband” a young conservative student group following a controversial “affirmative action bake sale” last week. The bake sale instantly drew large crowds of protesters, many claiming the bake sale was a “hate crime.” A petition demanding the removal of the group also circulated the campus and as of Thursday, it has 863 signatures. A resolution, filed by multiple members of the UT student government, called on the UT administration to not only disband Young Conservatives of Texas but demanding that they university respond to future incidents by...

    Harvard University shut down its men's soccer team because men on the team secretly rated the attractiveness of girls on the girl's soccer team. Harvard announced on Thursday that it was canceling the rest of the season for its men’s soccer team after university officials uncovered what they described as a widespread practice of the team’s players rating the school’s female players in sexually explicit terms. Lawyers for the university began investigating the men’s team after the college newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, reported last week that a player created a nine-page document in 2012 with numeric ratings, photos and lengthy...

    A high school student was threatened with suspension from her classes after wearing a T-shirt declaring Hillary for Prison 2016. Maxine Yeakle, who is voting for Donald Trump, said she was pulled out of class at Boca Raton High School in Florida because of what she was wearing. The 18-year-old posted a video on Facebook on Tuesday, saying the school’s assistant principal had admitted there were no rules against clothes with political slogans on them, but said she faced in-school suspension (ISS) because of the disruption it was causing. …

    Syracuse University is now providing free tampons in men’s bathrooms because… progress or whatever. In a move that defies biology, the campus is setting up a $1,000 budget to provide 10 Tampax Tampons and 10 Maxithins pads in all women’s, men’s, and gender neutral bathrooms. According to Keelan Erhard, a co-chair for the Syracuse Student Association: Both trans(gender) men and cis(gender) women menstruate. We should not try to gender menstrual products so that we are inclusive of everyone who uses them. So apparently men who think they’re women also think they’re capable of biological functions they don’t possess… However, in...

    A Maoist-style reeducation fest approaches in Seattle schools Thousands of taxpayer-supported Seattle teachers are planning to don Black Lives Matter t-shirts this week in public schools and force-feed left-wing propaganda to their students about race in an effort to draw attention to the systemic racism they imagine is embedded in the public education regime. The shirts say “Black Lives Matter” and “We Stand Together,” which is almost identical in meaning to the Hillary Clinton campaign slogan “Standing Together.”

    Here we go again. Another conservative speaker has been disinvited from speaking at a "tolerant" progressive university. This time, it's Milwaulkee County Sheriff David Clarke. Clarke, who was initially invited by the University of New Haven to give a talk about forensics (after all, he works in law enforcement), has been disinvited because of "circumstances." Those "circumstances" likely have to do with Clarke's conservative viewpoints, support for Donald Trump and criticism of Black Lives Matter. From Sheriff Clarke's blog:  We accepted, began planning for the trip — my assistant exchanged over a dozen emails in July about booking flights and hotel.  Then...

    A school has been criticised after punishing a whole cheerleading squad after a male student said he was distracted by their short skirts. The student at Timpview High School had “impure” thoughts after seeing the squad in their uniforms, People reports, and so his mother wrote to the school and complained. After the formal complaint was made, rather than helping the male student to deal with the thoughts, the Utah school’s administrators appear to have punished the whole cheerleading squad. Administrators told the cheerleading coach at the school, who told the 44-strong cheerleading squad that they should not wear their...
