  • The Gaza terrorists didn't fool anyone with their latest slaughter stunt

    American Thinker ^ | 05/18/2018 | Monica Showalter
    After sacrificing fifty of their prized terrorists in their latest stunt to discredit Israel in the past week, was it really worth it to Gaza's Hamas rulers?  Based on at least one surprising press account describing the phony staged event, it looks as if the trick fell flat. Get a load of what the liberal-lefty, hoity-toity, Euro-infused Economist is reporting about it: Every state has a right to defend its borders.  To judge by the numbers, Israel's army may well have used excessive force.  But any firm conclusion requires an independent assessment of what happened, where and when.  The Israelis sometimes used non-lethal means, such as...

  • First people accused of vandalism at Trump’s inauguration go on trial

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 16, 2018
    Four men accused of participating in a chaotic anti-capitalism march during President Trump’s inauguration went on trial Wednesday, facing possible decades behind bars for their alleged role in a window-smashing spree that ended in a mass arrest. The men were arrested alongside about 230 other people on January 20, 2017, several blocks north of Trump’s inaugural parade route, after police cornered largely black-clad participants, journalists, and legal observers on a downtown street corner. Three of the defendants allegedly took a direct role in vandalism, and another allegedly knew of plans for mayhem. Defense attorneys claimed mistaken identity and collective punishment...
  • Nikki Haley To UN On Gaza: “No Country In This Chamber Would Act With More Restraint Than Israel”

    True, and no other country in the region would be expected to act with restraint. Good luck to any Yemenis “protesting” at the Saudi border, for instance. There’d be 10 times as many shot and the UN wouldn’t blink.Her quote about the kite-flying Hamas “protester” is also accurate, although she neglected to mention what else he said. On @NPR, @NPRinskeep just asked a Gazan with a kite w a swastika on it what it means to him. "The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler." Steve Inskeep asked if he knows the Israelis are using the swastikas to discredit...
  • UC Berkeley: ‘Hard to defend’ free speech of conservatives who ‘incite’ liberal students

    The Washington Times ^ | May 4, 2018 | Douglas Ernst -
    A long-awaited report on free speech protections at the University of California, Berkeley, blames “hard to defend” conservative speakers for inciting left-wing students to violence. A commission of Berkeley faculty, students formed in 2017 after violent and costly student protests called its commitment to free speech into question. Their months long study of the issue resulted in the conclusion that “ultra-conservative rhetoric” by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter only exists to “advance a facile narrative that universities are not tolerant of conservative speech.” “Contrary to a currently popular narrative, Berkeley remains a tolerant campus,” the report says,...

    Hundreds of police were deployed after residents rioted and torched cars in Toulouse following a police stop of a woman wearing an illegal full-face Islamic veil. The incident that allegedly sparked the riots took place Sunday after 5 pm when local police stopped a woman in the Toulouse district of Bellefontaine who was wearing a full-face Islamic veil, which is illegal in France.Police asked the woman for identification and when she presented a poor photocopy of her government identification, they ordered her to remove her veil, broadcaster Franceinfo reports. The woman refused to lift her veil and is said to...

    Colombo (AFP) - Sri Lanka imposed a curfew Monday in a central hill station town popular with tourists after days of communal unrest that saw a man killed and Muslim businesses set alight. Police had been placed on alert in Kandy, home to famous tea plantations and Buddhist relics, to ensure that the "situation does not spiral into inter-communal conflagration," the government said.

    Dwayne Dixon, a leader of the left-wing Redneck Revolt militia group, admitted to chasing Charlotesville driver James Fields with a rifle shortly before Fields allegedly crashed into a group of protesters, killing Heather Heyer, on August 12, 2017. Why did Dixon chase Fields before the crash? Big League Politics asked Dixon about this on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where Dixon works as a cultural anthropology professor. The interview quickly went haywire, with Dixon attacking our cameraman and calling the police to report on “an intruder” on the public college campus:

    Naw… I’m just kidding. They tore the city up.Following a grueling match which went down to the final second in what was arguably one of the most exciting Super Bowls on record, fans of the victorious Philadelphia Eagles took to the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. Many were simply joyous and looking forward to welcoming the Lombardi Trophy to their town at last. But a significant number of them went and did what Eagles fans are known all too well for. They began ripping up the infrastructure, setting fires and flipped over at least one car in front...

    A Baltimore police officer involved in arresting a black man who later suffered a fatal injury during a police van ride testified at the driver’s disciplinary hearing Tuesday that the man did not show any signs he needed medical care when he was first put into the van. Officer Edward Nero testified at the hearing for Officer Caesar Goodson, the van driver who could be fired for violating department policies in the case. “He was not showing any signs of a medical emergency,” Nero, a certified emergency medical technician, said of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died about a week after...

    I have been hearing from friends via email, Facebook and Twitter that “ANTIFA” is apparently plotting a civil war in the United States that will begin on November 4, according to a pervasive right wing conspiracy theory. I'm wondering what freepers have heard. Many web sites and BLOGs on both sides of the issue.
  • Last Month, 83% of U.S. Protests Were Against Trump

    The University of Denver ^ | October 11, 2017 | Professor Erica Chenoweth
    For August 2017, we tallied 834 protests, demonstrations, strikes, marches, sit-ins and rallies in the United States, with at least one in every state and the District. Our conservative guess is that between 175,625 and 205,178 people showed up at these political gatherings, although it is likely there were far more participants. Because mainstream media often neglect to report nonviolent actions — especially small ones — it is probable that we did not record every event that took place. At 31 percent of the events we listed this month, we lacked an estimate of the size of the crowd. Nevertheless,...

    Since Donald Trump won the presidency last year, the streets of have teemed with leftist activists united in their collective outrage. Various protesters have wreaked havoc across the nation. Now, Refuse Fascism’s Andy Zee hopes to amass an army for what may be the final battle in their war against the United States. Millions of people will gather nationwide in a coordinated protest to remove Trump and Pence from the White House beginning November 4 – nearly a year to the day after the election – and they insist they will not relent until the mission is achieved.

    The Kansas City Star ^ | September 28, 2017 | BY EMILY PARNELL
    During the Ferguson protests, I remember thinking, “This is what happens when people feel like they don’t have a voice.” The outraged community gathered together to speak. And, as can happen with outrage — particularly when there are scared, young people involved — the rage overtook some, and the protests turned destructive. The whole thing felt a wee bit like racism, to be honest. There was an “us” vs. “them” feel to it. Distaste for a community that didn’t exercise self-control. A “Well, what do you expect?” attitude. Do you know what I didn’t hear discussed from any of the...

    A message for white people: I know how jarring it may be to hear a non-white person, or maybe anyone, even say the words “white people,” as it can take on a pejorative connotation. That’s fine. This isn’t always comfortable to have to say, but that doesn’t make it any less true, necessary, or timely. Before I get started, I want to be clear, this is for all white Americans. To my friend, to my foe. To my colleagues, my contemporaries, and my competitors. To the professional athlete and the pee-wee league coach. To my family members. From late night...

    Georgia Tech may be the unlikeliest of places to witness violent riots, but in the current climate of campus insanity it seems no college is immune from student unrest. On Monday, cop cars burned down and police were pelted with rocks in retaliation for a “non-binary” student shot to death by law enforcement over the weekend. The slain student brandished a knife at officers while demanding that they shoot him. Video of the shooting and the multiple suicide notes left behind by the deceased student, Scout Schultz, indicate he was trying to goad police into killing him. (RELATED: Student Killed...
