    D.C. Watson: WWE’s Hassan character too accurately portrayed to succeed It appears to be a done deal. Mark Copani, who, for World Wrestling Entertainment plays the disgruntled Arab-American wrestler Muhammad Hassan, has tentatively been released by the WWE, and will be reporting to Ohio Valley Wrestling for “repackaging.” So, let’s see if we have this straight. A wrestling character, “Muhammad Hassan”, a Muslim character judging by the name, who during interviews, insults the United States, while also spending time interrupting interviews being conducted with other wrestlers, demanding the “special time that he deserves”, relying on his manager’s constant interference to...

    A University student has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education claiming that a University Office of Multicultural Academic Support policy that reserves early registration into several math and English classes for minority students is an unfair, "racist practice." University senior Melissa Hanks filed a complaint Friday with the DOE's Office for Civil Rights, saying she hopes the department will investigate the classes and that the complaint will prompt University administrators to abolish the enrollment restrictions. "I want to see these classes gone," Hanks said. "I want to see no enrollment based on race." The OMAS administers seven...

    This is a true story about America, about how the magnificent Judeo-Christian culture of my youth – which represented the hope of liberty for the world's oppressed – was so easily turned into mush in my lifetime. Let me begin with a brief story about my father. When he was only three years old, my dad was sentenced to death. That's right. The Turkish government was engaged in a deliberate campaign to force him, his mother and infant sister, along with hundreds of thousands of other Armenians, into the Syrian desert where they would die of starvation, disease, or worse...

    I am asking for non-Ivory tower feedback and ideas. I am wrestling with college committee work and the revamping of our liberal arts requirements. I feel I am battling a PC tsunami. So I thought I'd ask for some real-world feedback. (Our opinions in the ivory tower can be a bit near-sighted.) Those of you who are recent graduates, or employers of graduates, let me know if any requirements for multi-cultural or interdisciplinary courses have made you (or your employees) better individuals. What is multi-cultural? (How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? This is a great...

    Muticultural Madness - How Western Civilization Has Been Turned Upside down in One Generation "We've been planning this for a long time, and it's a real treat," said WND Editor and founder Joseph Farah. "In this wonderful issue, multiculturalism is sliced, diced and roasted up as shish kabob and served up to our readers as a delicious journalistic feast. It's not only a stunning expose of multiculturalism and political correctness, but also a memorable celebration and affirmation of all that is truly American." "MULTICULTURAL MADNESS" documents how multiculturalism, which started on college campuses during the "cultural revolution" of the '60s,...

    We are into the silly season now, with the liberals out spreading winter holiday cheer to all and insuring that no one uses the word “Christmas” except behind closed doors in the privacy of their own homes. Lest anyone think that the liberals and radical leftists are going quietly, just look at their actions after having suffered one of the worst election defeats in modern history. They are all over the networks lecturing us on tolerance, open-mindedness and multiculturalism while doing everything in their power to denigrate the historical and religious traditions of the majority. The liberals believe that their...

    Liberals took their historic defeat in the 2004 elections quite well. They could have reacted with bitterness, rancor and hysteria. Instead they were gracious, and engaged in thoughtful introspection. I’m kidding. Actually, liberals behaved predictably. They’ve spent the past week sneering at red-state residents – remarking on the alleged poverty, stupidity and plain gullibility of Bush country (combined with neo-Marxist cant about how capitalists use faith appeals to control the masses). The more intrepid among them are talking about emigrating to Canada. The more delusional are toying with the idea of secession. Reuters tells us that the day after the...

    The lovely Queen (May She Live Forever) and I are now administering the children's ministry at our church. As we were gathering supplies for last week's classes, we discovered a new product by Crayola which I had never seen before: I fondly remember coloring in my early years. My favorite color was always brick red, although I have no idea why. (Possibly because it was one of the few cool colors that came in the 24 pack, which is all my family could ever afford. My choice might have been different if the assortment of 64 had fit within the...

    BBC News Online, Amsterdam 01/22/2004 Dutch are 'polarised' says reportBy Angus RoxburghThe Netherlands' example as a successful, tolerant, multicultural community has taken a dent with the publication of a parliamentary report saying Dutch society is becoming increasingly polarised, with:huge ethnic ghettos and subcultures tearing the country apart. It is an issue which has been simmering away for years, but only made the headlines two years ago when the radical politician Pim Fortuyn, who was later assassinated, called for an end to immigration. He said immigration, especially from Muslim countries, was diluting Dutch liberal values. Now the all-party parliamentary report has...

    Tolerance: The Enlightenment Vs Multi-Culturalism. By Robert Wolf Tolerance, as exemplified by the Enlightenment ‘philosophes’, incorporated the belief that each individual should be free to pursue his own interests. In the words of Locke, “The commonwealth seems to me to be a society of men constituted only for the procuring, preserving, and advancing their own civil interests. Civil interests I call life, liberty, health, and indolency of body (recreation); and the possession of outward things, such as money, lands, houses, furniture, and the like.1 Unlike Hobbes’ Leviathan’, Locke regards this contract as revocable, a government that depends upon the consent...

    Note from the Editor (09.11.03) Brace yourself for another guilt trip about race By Peter A. Steele Twin City Times editor Here we go again, folks. People from away are about to descend on Lewiston to lecture us, the horrible white people of European origins, about race relations and how we must strive to fully accept other cultures. Quite frankly, it makes us sick. An entire cottage industry has sprung up over the past couple of decades, selling its silly philosophy that people in all workplaces must undergo 'diversity training' and attend seminars on 'prejudice reduction' and 'conflict resolution.'

    Academics Flee From Diversity Debate By Peter Wood March 11, 2003 In early February, the debate club at Colby College in Waterville, Maine invited me to debate the role of "diversity" in higher education with, they hoped, the president of the College, William Adams, who likes to be called "Bro." President Adams declined. So did his vice president, Arnie Yasinski, the “Associate Dean for Intercultural Affairs,” Jeri Roseboro, and the “Coordinator of Multicultural Student Programs and Support,” Bernadette Buchanan. In all the debate club invited 13 members of the administration and the faculty to debate me. They all declined. President...

His new book is "Multiculturalism and the Politics of Guilt: Toward a Secular Theocracy."You observe, "Nothing could be more misleading than to equate a multicultural society with a multiethnic one." What distinguishes a multicultural society from a multiethnic one? Multiethnic societies have been recurrent political phenomena and involve the coexistence of more than one ethnos, that is, national community,...

    Multicultural groups focus on derogatory Halloween costumes By Beth Skopp Halloween is stereotypically seen as a day of fun when people can dress as something they aren't. However, it is stereotypes that are problematic for many students. "Halloween itself isn't offensive. It's when people portray an ethnicity in an incorrect way that people become offended," said Carl Camacho, a member of the executive team for the Multicultural Student Coalition and a UW-Madison senior. For the past three years, the MCSC has used videotape to document offensive Halloween costumes. Members of the group approach students dressed in ethnic costumes and ask...

    A standout university student who admitted to smuggling nearly 75 kilos of heroin and "Special K"-type drugs -- worth $80 million -- concealed in Chinese duck eggs was sentenced to time served. Justice Wailan Low said "Chris" Zhi Yong Huang, 23, a top student at Wilfrid Laurier University, was led into the operation by his parents. The judge, who is also of Chinese dissent, said she understands how his culture created a "sense of filial duty." Huang, who worked weekends at the family business, a Scarborough warehouse, shows potential for rehabilitation, Low said. The scheme was uncovered in an August...
