  • Hate speech or free speech? One campus leader balks at being 'PC'

    The administration of the prestigious University of Chicago has drawn a line in the sand on one of higher education's hottest topics: whether what some students see as protection from hate speech trumps the traditional right to free speech. In a letter to incoming students, Dean of Students Jay Ellison cast the university's stance as a matter of "academic freedom." The letter has been circulated widely. "We do not support so-called 'trigger warnings,' we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual 'safe spaces' where individuals can retreat...

    To help you understand what’s going on, I’d like you to cast your minds back to the Eighties and the era of ‘political correctness gone mad’. At the time, we thought it was so loopy it would disappear up its own bottom. Instead, it continued to get worse and worse, leading to lunacies like the nursery schools in Oxfordshire teaching kids to sing about ‘Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep’, and thence to nonsense like the ‘safe spaces’ promoted on university campuses for a generation of special snowflakes, as well as to vexatious campaigns like the one conducted at Oxford by anti-white...

    It’s been a summer of good sports: the Tour de France, the Rio Olympics, baseball, and now within weeks, the beginning of the football season. Professional and amateur sports are obviously not coed. Why aren’t women competing with men in the track and field events at the Rio Olympics? Because men can run faster than women. Why aren’t women competing with men in the Tour de France? Because men are stronger and have more aerobic lung capacity. Why aren’t women intercepting a pass in the NFL? Because women don’t have the muscle mass and upper body strength to last five...

    Born from a lie, (hands up, don’t shoot) the Black Lives Matter movement is not about black lives nor anything that matters to the African-American community. Black Lives Matter was born out of the same group of anarchists that formed Occupy Wall Street. George Soros is the architect behind both. Some may recall that he created anarchy in Great Britain’s financial market in order to make a fortune out of the chaos that followed with the falling pound. Follow the money, and you will find that he intends to see the American dollar fall, in order to make a great...

    In a social media-driven world, everyone is a brand. When everyone becomes a brand, virtue signaling is destined to become an epidemic. When you’re a liberal, the best way to show how much more virtuous you are than other people is to become offended. The more trivial the issue you are offended by, the more caring, enlightened and, yes, virtuous you appear to other liberals. Moreover, if you think white privilege, racism and rape culture are running rampant, you’ll want to find ways to distinguish yourself from the masses, whom you view as troglodytes.   As the great Thomas Sowell...

    London’s new Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, is allocating over two million dollars (Ł1,730,726) to an “online hate crime hub” enabling police to track and arrest “trolls” who “target…individuals and communities.” There can be no doubt, given the nature of the British political establishment today, which “trolls” these new Thought Police will be going after, and which “communities” will be protected from “hate speech.” “Islamophobia,” which David Horowitz and I termed “the thought crime of the totalitarian future,” is now going to bring down upon the hapless “trolls” the wrath of London’s Metropolitan police force -- and this totalitarian new initiative...

    Teachers in Charlotte, North Carolina have been advised to stop calling the children “boys and girls,” according to a training presentation on transgender issues. Instead, the progressives who control Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools want teachers to identify the youngsters as either “students” or “scholars.” So what if a teacher has a student who is dumb as a rock? Would the child still be called a scholar? he transgender guidelines, which will go into effect later this month, range from the absurd to downright outrageous. For example, boys who identify as girls would be permitted to participate on overnight all-girl field trips. That’s...

On Monday, her accounts sent out a picture of her riding on Bolt’s back during Sunday’s 100 meter semifinal with the suggestion she’d like to use the Jamaican sprinter’s word-class speed to get her errands done faster.

    Political Correctness is an Agitprop Tool that can be used to Legalize Anything, writes the journalist of mass-media brainwashing, Stella Morabito Green. Public opinion is increasingly a reflection of what people are willing to say based on their sense of social rewards and punishments for expressing an opinion. …using silencing tactics to achieve conformity of thought; blind rage and intolerance towards any ideas that diverge from the agenda; and all-out efforts to eliminate perceived enemies. But the visible actors who are shutting down freedom seem not to be free agents themselves. They act more like recruits whose behavior has been...

And the hottest up-and-coming morning disc jockey in the Washington market was a young man with a long face, even longer hair and an acid tongue. Howard Stern.

And now Rio seems dopey in another way: owing to political correctness, a runner with, reportedly, no womb or ovaries but internal testes will be allowed to compete with women.

Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

    Critical Race Theory, or CRT, is the study of systemic racism and how it relates to society, law and economics. The subject began in liberal universities in the 1980s, and has gained a lot of traction over the last three decades, as more attention has been brought to the rampant racism in American society. CRT has since been adopted by a large number of colleges, and is now offered as an undergraduate course at many progressive universities. However, CRT is yet to make it into school curricula, despite the demands of many progressive groups urging the states and Federal government...

    Businesses started caring a lot more about diversity after a series of high-profile lawsuits rocked the financial industry. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Morgan Stanley shelled out $54 million—and Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch more than $100 million each—to settle sex discrimination claims. In 2007, Morgan was back at the table, facing a new class action, which cost the company $46 million. In 2013, Bank of America Merrill Lynch settled a race discrimination suit for $160 million. Cases like these brought Merrill’s total 15-year payout to nearly half a billion dollars.

    Leftist views have increasingly dominated American college campuses to the point that many universities now consider the mere mention of conservative values an aggressive act that warrants counseling. One page on the official website of Virginia’s Longwood University, however, shows just how cloistered liberals have become in the realm of higher education. A slideshow on the college’s Diversity and Inclusion Resources page includes numerous social justice buzzwords, including a denouncement of so-called “invalidations.” As the examples continued, they exposed even more intolerance toward those with a more traditional worldview. Following a list of “insults” that are not welcome on campus,...

If you say the word "brownie" out loud, you might hurt the feelings of a person with brown skin. And that's bad. That's why we have the police. On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood. A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed...

    The nation’s oldest public school – and the alma mater of five signers of the Declaration of Independence – is embroiled in a racial controversy that may be its biggest test in nearly 400 years. Boston Latin School, founded in 1635 and still one of America’s most prestigious high schools, has undergone an administrative shakeup, faces growing demands from community leaders and is the subject of a federal investigation. The controversy arose after two black students claimed on YouTube that racism courses through hallways and classrooms, and the administration turns a blind eye. “The fact that our administration failed to...
  • Embarrassed UNC Ditches Lampooned Guidelines on ‘Micro-Aggressions’

    UNC has removed “guidelines” for avoiding micro-aggression incidents on campus that included both of those behaviors. According to a statement released in the wake of concern over its free speech policies, UNC says the information, which was posted by a school employee in a forum intended for faculty and staff to share information and discuss potential policy changes, does not reflect the school’s official policy on handling questions of campus speech.

    Harry Truman, Douglas MacArther
    What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’.. The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted! I did have to modify one word so it would be allowed on these boards.

    A Students for Trump event at Portland State University was greeted with hostility Saturday when campus police officers tried to kick Trump’s supporters to the curb while protesters reacted hysterically to chants of “USA! USA!” Students for Trump began the event by erecting a wall on campus but campus security attempted to force the students to leave on the grounds that the wall was a “structure” rather than a “sign,” and thus violated university policies. However, the students were ultimately allowed to remain on campus but were harshly ridiculed by their peers, who called them “pathetic,” “idiot,” and members of...

    U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch yesterday knocked President Obama’s “politically correct” reluctance to use the term “Islamic extremists” — and said the U.S. should have struck back at ISIS with a heavy hand immediately after the Orlando massacre. “I would have liked to have seen a pronounced effort right after Orlando. They called for this. They struck American citizens and we should have a show of force to send a message,” Lynch told Boston Herald Radio.

    The Department of Justice is scrubbing references of radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of calls Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen made to police during his massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday. A partial transcript of the conversations between authorities and Mateen, who killed 49 and wounded 53 in the June 12 attack at a Florida gay nightclub, is set to be released on Monday. But Lynch, who appeared on numerous Sunday talk shows, said the transcripts will not include Mateen's oath of loyalty to ISIS or any other religious justification for the attack.

    As politically correct and in total denial as President Obama is on the subject of taking the fight to ISIS, he has a lot of company these days from his fellow Americans. The primary governmental organization responsible for our homeland security issues orders for its employees not use the terms Jihad or Sharia. The Federal Bureau of Investigation can’t conduct surveillance on mosques over concerns of offending Muslims. The President and members of Congress green light Syrians into the country as ISIS blazes a trail of terror across the globe. Muslim migrants storm the country like a horde blasting through...

    We are at war. The President may not know it or want to believe it, but anyone with half a brain is quite aware that ISIS wants to destroy us and institute a caliphate across the globe based on its twisted, evil ideology. President Obama is not only philosophically against fighting this war, but he’s also scared to face the enemy. His fear causes him to create a myriad of excuses why he can’t take the helm and crucify ISIS. The war with ISIS, Mr. President is not a gun control issue or a LGBT issue or some cry for...
