    Looking for a way to end hate, intolerance, racism, and the rampant Islamophobia plaguing our country? Well, perhaps not end those things so much as signal to others that you stand against those things because you're a morally superior being? Then, the George Soros-backed progressive group that worked so hard to get Barack Obama elected twice, has just the thing for you: a plain white t-shirt emblazoned with the bold, smug declaration, "I Stand With My Muslim Neighbors."

California was admitted as the 31st state in 1850. A school official, however, said the red star on the shirt blurs the line between free speech and safety, Fox 40 reported. The star, the school said, is often associated with the Norteno gang.

Siewert testified, however, that there was no forensic evidence that Zimmerman had pressed the gun to Martin’s chest. In fact, the gunpowder residue and other material evidence showed that the gun was touched to Martin’s shirt, and that Martin’s shirt was not pressed to his chest,...
