  • NBC Finally Finds Trump Voter With Buyer’s Remorse...He’s a Democrat

    04/27/2017 3:44:28 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | April 27, 2017 | Kyle Drennen
    After spending months trying to get Trump voters to express regret for their support of the President, on Thursday, NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace took to the Today show to eagerly announce that she finally found a regretful supporter. He turned out to a liberal millennial who backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary before voting for Donald Trump in the general election.          Wallace led off the segment by reminding viewers of her crusade to understand Trump voters: “So we began this journey five months ago with the goal of meeting and listening to the people...

    The New York Times published an op-ed Monday by New York University comparative literature professor Ulrich Baer, who argued that those young protesters derided as campus "snowflakes" who violently oppose speakers who offend leftist sensibilities are actually getting it right about free speech. Indeed, Baer concludes, "We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other 'overly sensitive' souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic." No we shouldn't. We must be vigilant against those totalitarian students, activists, and snowflakes in defense of our republic's soul.
  • New York Times: Thank 'Snowflakes' for Protecting Free Speech

    If you want to read something crazy, look no further than the New York Times opinion section. The paper actually published an editorial Monday morning that outright denied free speech applied to anyone who wasn’t a liberal. In his appalling article, “What ‘Snowflakes’ Get Right About Free Speech,” New York University professor Ulrich Baer argued that conservatives are simply wrong about what free speech means, and that protesters who censored conservative or otherwise “offensive” guest speakers were actually protecting free speech. Baer begins his article by breaking down the modern understanding of free speech as “anything goes.” While Baer is...

    After being slammed into the food truck, five officers allegedly surrounded Yearwood then detained him. Once he was identified as a member of the clergy and a VIP at the march, the officers ran his identification for outstanding warrants and did not find anything. Yearwood was then allegedly released without being placed under arrest. . . . Yearwood claims that of an entire crowd of white people surrounding him, only one woman with dyed pink hair offered to help after he was released. He wrote that his experience was representative of how the environmental movement ignores the concerns of African-Americans....

    Pro-life students at Wilfrid Laurier University say they will no longer be able to put up their pro-life flag display, with campus leaders explaining such exhibits are too traumatic after one last fall caused an uproar on the Canadian campus. The display used 10,000 pink and blue flags to represent the 100,000 abortions each year in Canada.

    The internet has lost its mind over the limited-edition Unicorn Frappuccino – and apparently so have Starbucks baristas. The sugary frozen drink that changes flavor and color with a stir of the straw debuted on Wednesday and is only available until Sunday. A young man who is a Starbucks barista in Colorado described the “insane” scene at his location. “I have never been so stressed out in my entire life,” Braden Burson said in a video that’s going viral on Twitter. “My hands are completely sticky.” He says people were coming in left and right on Wednesday. “If you love...

    A mob of Penn Station travelers fled the transit hub in hysteria after Amtrak police officers used a stun gun on a man. The busy Penn Station was already a mad house from a NJ Transit train that stalled in a tunnel, backing up service for more than two hours ahead of the Friday rush on a holiday weekend. By 6:30 p.m., shortly after the stalled train was taken to Penn Station, riders stampeded away from the site where the man was hit with the stun gun. Luggage food and clothes were strewn across the floor.

    While his father was busy insisting that U.S.-Russia relations would survive this latest round of frost, Donald Trump Jr. was tweeting about fast food on college campuses. Well, one campus in particular: Pittsburgh's Duquesne University, where LGBT students and their supporters say they fear the addition of a Chick-fil-A restaurant to a campus food court because of the company's "questionable history on civil rights and human rights."

    Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students. . . . Rachel Coury, president of the Duquesne gay-straight alliance, said she fears Chick-fil-A will roll back efforts to create a safe environment for gay students on campus. “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community,” Ms. Coury told The Duke. “So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A … maybe people will feel that...

    The Snowflake generation now uses their rage as a vicious Marxist weapon with the intent to harm the reputation of anything they don't like, especially when it's a large corporation Okay, I’ve just about had my fill with the news about the United Airlines passenger being dragged off the plane because the company overbooked, but the passenger refused to leave the flight. Should they overbook? Probably not. There is an average number they have calculated of the number of people they believe will not even show up, so based on those numbers, they overbook a little bit to make sure...

    Vice President Mike Pence’s scheduled commencement speech at Notre Dame has prompted a protest campaign by seniors who feel “unsafe.” ... “For me personally, [Mr. Pence] represents the larger Trump administration,” Ms. Mondane told school’s newspaper, The Observer, on Monday. “His administration represents something, and for many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”

    Whether it is female Republican students at places like St. Olaf College and Cornell University being accosted, cursed at, threatened with physical violence and, in the latter case, actually assaulted; Cal State Fullerton Trump supporting students being assaulted by an instructor; a riot at Berkeley; or College Republicans being targeted by name as “fascists” and encouragements made to make their personal information public so that decent folks can “punch fascists”—bullying, intimidation, and threats of violence against conservative students have become staples of campus life.  While this phenomenon is an outrage in itself, equally outrageous is the fact that it has...
  • Josh Whedon warns Trump may start killing gay people

    Hollywood director Josh Whedon has gone off the deep end in his opposition to President Trump. He's apparently something of a celebrity for helming cult projects like "Firefly" and "Serenity." All the more reason to ignore him? Perhaps, but what fun would that be? Whedon created a pro-Hillary ad during the campaign that obviously, had little influence on the outcome. So he's been keeping up a regular tweetstorm since the election warning us about Donald Trump. Recently, he sort of lost it. He retweeted a link to a story about gays being murdered by Muslims in Chechnya by hinting it...

    After Donald Trump won the presidency in November, liberal college students were pretty upset as they took part in cry-ins, walkouts, and marches. However, a psychiatry professor at Michigan State University believes that a lot of millennials upset with the election results are now developing mental health problems. Dr. Farha Abbasi, who’s an expert on mental health post-election, told the Spartan Newsroom that for some millennials are becoming more anxious as they struggle with their identities while depression is worsening for others. “Millennials are already facing a lot of challenges,” Abbasi said, explaining that between living during wars in the...

    A rally Wednesday afternoon resulted in a disrupted workplace and gridlocked traffic as student protesters marched to demand more diversity at the Indiana University-Bloomington campus. The rally and march was organized by the student group Students Against State Violence (SASV) in support of a Resolution on Diversity that was passed last April by the Faculty Council, because according to the SASV, the university “has been delaying and opposing its implementation.”

    Based on a brainchild of one its students, Laguna Hills High School officials had the mirrors taken out of the school’s girls’ bathrooms … and replaced with notes of “affirmation.” The notes include little sayings such as “You are important” and “You are loved.” Sabrina Astle, a member of the school “Kindness Club,” said she came up with the idea because she wanted to “make a difference.” “The signs have helped people remember that everyone is beautiful, everyone is important, everyone is good enough and everyone should be treated equally. I did this because I am passionate about the fact...
