Moments later he wrote, “Yes but do not engage w Crowd at statue. Stay way out.” The statue fell at about 9:30 p.m. Shortly after, the police began to form a...

    President Trump said Wednesday that he has "personal experience" of possible political bias against conservatives by social media giants, citing fluctuations in his number of online followers, and saying alleged bias by companies "may not be legal." Expounding on his recent claims of bias in social media and search results, Trump told reporters at the White House that "I think that Google, and Facebook, and Twitter, I think they treat conservatives and Republicans very unfairly." "I could tell you that I have personal experience, I have a lot of people on the various platforms," Trump said. "I can tell you...

    Facebook’s action means an essential blackout of the military’s main channel of public communication, with pages followed by millions of people in a country where the social media giant is virtually synonymous with the internet. “Specifically, we are banning 20 Burmese individuals and organizations from Facebook — including Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and the military’s Myawady television network,” Facebook said in a blog post. "We're removing a total of 18 Facebook accounts, one Instagram account and 52 Facebook Pages, followed by almost 12 million people," It is the first time Facebook has imposed such...

    You typically don’t grow a movement by subtraction, but it’s become clear that some prominent figures in the world of conservatism are negative numbers. They are net liabilities, and we need to boot them out of the big tent or they will keep stinking up the place. We need to clean house, to send the cruise-shilling hacks, whiny geebos, and the careerist dillweeds of Conservative, Inc., packing. Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and others, I’m looking at you.We need a purge. Let’s be clear, I am not talking about one of those purges like in those stupid Purge movies where we...

    Chapel Hill, N.C. — At least seven people were arrested after a group of protesters gathered Saturday on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to demonstrate just days after the controversial Silent Sam statue was toppled.

That man, Casey Becknell, came to the protest from Davidison County to show support for the Silent Sam statue that was torn down when about 300 people gathered...

    <p>AUSTIN, Texas – Residents and tourists in Austin told PJM that they oppose the idea of renaming the state capital due to Stephen F. Austin’s support for slavery.</p> <p>Austin, known as the “Father of Texas,” owned “a few slaves” in his lifetime and opposed efforts in Mexico to end slavery, according to author and historian Gregg Cantrell. In 1824, Austin defended the economic benefits of slavery, specifically for cotton.

    #WalkAway: The University of North Carolina is promising to fully investigate (and, let’s hope, prosecute) the latest attempt by the insane insurgency Left to attack American history, which wasn’t, of course, always replete with shining examples of great-nation status. Earlier this week jerks pulled down a Confederate statue that had been on the campus since 1913, in remembrance “of the sons of the University who died for their beloved Southland 1861-1865,” according to the inscription.

    The North Carolina Historical Commission voted Wednesday to keep three Confederate monuments on the grounds of the state Capitol building amid controversy about the statues’ future in the state.

The commission also called for a monument to be built honoring African-Americans’ contributions to North Carolina. The state commission’s vote came in response to Gov. Roy Cooper (D), who called for the three monuments to be removed from the Capitol grounds and preserved at a Civil War battlefield....

    Toppling of Confederate statue in North Carolina could make it harder to negotiate a resolution to the fate of other such monuments in the state. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Protesters at North Carolina's flagship university took advantage of a non-confrontational police response to topple a century-old Confederate statue that's long been the target of critics who say it symbolizes racism. Now, backlash over the Monday night takedown could make it harder to negotiate a resolution to the fate of other Confederate monuments in the state — including three on state Capitol grounds being debated Wednesday by a state historical...

  • Think Confederate monuments are racist? Consider pioneer monuments

    In San Francisco, there is an an 800-ton monument that retells California history, from the Spanish missions to American settlement. Several bronze sculptures and relief plaques depict American Indians, white miners, missionaries and settlers. A female figure symbolizing white culture stands atop a massive stone pillar. The design of the “pioneer monument” was celebrated in newspapers across the country when it was erected in 1894. Today, however, apctivists argue that the monument – particularly its depiction of a Spanish missionary and Mexican “vaquero,” or cowboy, towering over an American Indian – is demeaning to American Indians. Should the city take...

    Austin’s Equity Office has recommended renaming the Texas city because of Stephen F. Austin's alleged views on slavery. But why stop at just renaming Austin when Amerigo Vespucci took and sold slaves. Austin, Texas is named after Stephen F. Austin, but America is named after Amerigo Vespucci. New York City has been on its own anti-history binge, demoting the statue of the ‘Father of Gynecology’ and tearing out plaques memorializing Robert E. Lee attached to a tree that he had once planted, but it’s got bigger problems. The city is named after King James II whose Royal African Company branded...
  • Apple, Facebook and other tech companies delete content from Alex Jones

    Major technology companies including Apple, Facebook and YouTube deleted years of content from conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars platforms over allegations of hate speech, a sudden clampdown that is fueling the growing debate over how big technology companies choose to censor. The move was unusual for its sweep and speed, suggesting a new assertiveness by technology companies that in the past have worked to avoid alienating conservatives, who often assert that left-leaning Silicon Valley is biased against them. The removals appeared to be prompted by more users flagging Infowars content for policy violations. ''' "...spreading provocative theories...
