    The mainstream media in both the U.S. and Europe have done a stellar job protecting the identities of two men who committed a gruesome atrocity against a 19-year-old pregnant woman and her unborn child, and for good reason: the men are Muslims. Not wishing to fuel the Islamophobia that liberals claim is so dangerous, the cowardly media bows to Sharia law by safeguarding the very ideology that contributed to these two criminals violent choices. This political correctness continues to protect the offenders, subsequently victimizing the innocent and creating more potential victims.

Democratic leaders, including Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), have denied a request from Rep. Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), who lost both of her legs in the Iraq War, to waive the Democratic rule barring proxy votes. Duckworth, 46, is in the last stages of a pregnancy and her doctor won't allow her to travel back to Washington to vote in person. The denial has angered a number of Democrats,...

    Academia is hell. In the latest higher-education fad, students want "trigger warnings," according to The New York Times. It appears that some students are so fragile that they want university staff to protect them from big bad ideas. Students around the country say they want "explicit alerts that the material they are about to read or see in a classroom might upset them or, as some students assert, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in victims of rape or in war veterans." An Oberlin College draft -- now "under revision" -- for trigger warnings suggested faculty "be aware of racism,...

The document was submitted to school districts across the nation to offer information on school retention issues relating to problems with young parents and pregnant mothers. While the directive focuses primarily on secondary schools, it also applies to post-secondary institutions that receive federal financial assistance.
