    Editor’s Note: The original article appeared in the Times of Israel. As yet another indication that the university campus has become "an island of repression in a sea of freedom," last March a pro-Israel group, Hasbara Fellowships Canada, was barred from participating in a "Social Justice Week" event organized by the Student Association of Durham College and University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). The stated reason for the exclusion? The student association (which, not coincidentally, had just approved a pro-BDS resolution against Israel) informed the Hasbara group that since the "organization seems closely tied to the state of Israel…it...

    ESPN’s Around the Horn has gone from one of the best, longest running panel shows the network has ever had, to an absolutely farcical flagship of left-wing lunacy. Yesterday, the panel at ATH lamented the fact that Cam Newton didn’t feel racially persecuted. Because, apparently, that’s bad. On Tuesday’s edition of the show, the panel discussed really silly comments made by the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, who said the NFL’s culture makes players not speak publicly on cultural issues, out of fear of repercussions.

    Corpulent Canadian comedian Seth Rogen is getting in a ton of trouble with social justice warriors for perceived racial stereotypes in his new animated adult comedy Sausage Party. The film, co-written by Rogen, is coming out tomorrow, but a tidal wave of liberal outrage is engulfing the movie, which is a spoof of Disney and Pixar animated films. Sausage Party‘s bizarre plot revolves around a hot dog’s relationship with other foods, and it ends with a food orgy. The beef from the SJWs revolves around the racial stereotypes of some of the foods in the Sony movie. An Arabic loaf...

    Theresa May entered No. 10 Downing St. on Wednesday as Britain’s new prime minister, following a bittersweet exit by David Cameron that was tinged with humor and regret. “I was the future once,” Cameron quipped as he left office. But that future now belongs to May, and it involves instability, uncertainty and tough wrangling over Britain’s departure from the European Union. […] May promised to fight for social justice in a speech that addressed “hard-working families” who have struggled during the years of instability since the 2008 financial crisis. Many of those people, fed up with remote politicians and bureaucrats,...

    The titles of “hero” or warrior” are probably two of the most appropriated titles today by those who are the least deserving of that distinction. They do not walk a warrior’s humble path of honor and self-sacrifice but, instead, seek fame pursuing a selfish agenda through intimidation and threats of violence. This is no truer than those screaming children at our universities along with their liberal professors screaming for muscle or those threatening riots if a particular candidate is elected President of the United States.

    The University of Pittsburgh is now teaching people how to be “gender-inclusive” and “non-sexist,” informing readers that the concept of "correct" English is merely a social construct. The Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program website has published a “Gender Inclusive and Non-Sexist Language Guide and Resources” guide, which includes advice for classrooms and other spaces. “Have you ever been called by a name or gender that you don’t identify with?” the guide begins, followed by declaring that, “[m]isgendering someone is disrespectful and dismissive.” Choosing words intentionally and with care is offered as a way to avoid misgendering and “creating a...

I admire the Founders for establishing a representative democracy that has survived for over two centuries. But sometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. This is one of those times. We need to say loud and clear: The Second Amendment must be repealed. As much as we have a culture of reverence for the founding generation, it's important to understand that they got it wrong —...

After the event, the Mayors’ Alliance endorsed Clinton for president. The mayors discussed issues important to them, including the economy. As the nation comes back from the worst downturn since the recession, the elected officials said the poor and disadvantaged have not benefited. In many New Jersey cities, more than a third of minority adults are unemployed, even when the nation is doing well financially. Data from a 2015 U.S. Census study show...

On Thursday, he slammed “socialist” presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and accused liberal activists of infringing on free speech. “The tactics in the social justice warrior movement are to stifle and shut down free speech,” the singer said Thursday during an appearance on Infowars, the online network run by far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

    Senator Bernie Sanders vowed on Sunday to fight on after losing the Nevada caucuses, predicting that he would pull off a historic political upset by this summer's party convention. But the often overlooked delegate count in the Democratic primary shows Mr. Sanders slipping significantly behind Hillary Clinton in the race for the nomination, and the odds of his overtaking her growing increasingly remote. Mrs. Clinton has 502 delegates to Mr. Sanders's 70; 2,383 are needed to win the nomination. These numbers include delegates won in state contests and superdelegates, who can support any candidate. She is likely to win a...

An assignment in instructor Revital Zilonka’s “Institution of Education” class tells future North Carolina teachers that “by the end of the semester, you are required to write your own personal/professional commitment to social justice,” the syllabus states. The class mandates a list of feminist and Marxist readings, and students’ “commitment” is expected to be up to eight pages long and delve into...

At a hastily convened news conference, Club spokesperson Ian Radburn hailed the vote as a symbolic but significant first step in raising awareness of Right Privilege, the difficulties and inconveniences of living in a right-handed world, and coming of age in a right-dominant culture and society.

Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much.

    The campus culture war is a religious war, a so-far largely peaceful counterpart to the violent purges and revolutions of jihad. One faith has been expunged, relegated to the margins of the academy, and now another fills the vacuum. Out with the Christianity that spawned American higher education, in with a ferocious new faith — a social-justice progressivism unrestrained by humility and consumed with righteous zeal. Contemporary Americans — educated in the kind of revisionist history that dominates our educational system from top to bottom — forget that higher education was initially a thoroughly Christian enterprise, in keeping with the...

Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped.

The Daily Tarheel has a problem with such merchandise. According to the paper, "this is problematic because it implies that over two centuries of systemic racism and imperialism are "great."" "Come on Dems," the paper reads, "you're supposedly liberal." Another problem that UNC had yesterday? "Racist dogs."

    The Justice Department will release some 6,000 inmates from federal prisons beginning at the end of the month as part of new sentencing guidelines for drug crimes established last year, a federal law enforcement official confirmed Tuesday to Fox News. The new drug sentencing guidelines from U.S. Sentencing Commission, which are intended to reduce penalties on certain nonviolent drug offenders, also applies to any future offenders. The U.S. Sentencing Commission decided in July 2014 that close to 50,000 federal inmates locked up on drug charges would be eligible for reduced sentences. The new sentencing guidelines took effect on Nov. 1,...

    The Justice Department is set to release about 6,000 inmates early from prison — the largest one-time release of federal prisoners — in an effort to reduce overcrowding and provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past three decades. The inmates from federal prisons nationwide will be set free by the department’s Bureau of Prisons between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. Most of them will go to halfway houses and home confinement before being put on supervised release. The early release follows action by the U.S. Sentencing Commission — an independent agency that sets sentencing policies...

    The Social Justice Warriors briefly had a new hero in the battle to prove that all cops are racists this summer and it came from the hotbed of racial intolerance known as the Connecticut suburbs. A professor at a community college in Hartford was pulled over on a rather basic traffic violation and was accosted by the police officer in a way which clearly demonstrated racial profiling. Or so she claimed. According to Fox CT, Minati Roychoudhuri, 32, was driving on a highway on May 9 when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield. She was cited...

    "... The five teachers, who are part of a TV series in which they take over the education of a class of 50 teenagers, have said British pupils unruly behaviour is directly linked to welfare handouts that has produced adolescents with rude behaviour. The teachers are starring in BBC Two's “Are Our Kids Tough Enough Chinese School” as part of a three-part documentary that begins Tuesday. .. Yang Jun, a science teacher who taught in schools in Xian before moving to the UK, said: “In China we don't need classroom management skills because everyone is disciplined by nature, by families,...

    Friday in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the National Urban League Conference, Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said President Barack Obama is “speaking the truth” on racial injustice. Bush said, “When President Obama says that ‘for too long we’ve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present,’ he is speaking the truth. But we should be just as candid about our failures in addressing injustices of the more recent origin. In our cities we’ve got so many people that have never known anything but poverty is. So many young adults with no vision of...

    "All cops are bastards!" "F**k cops!" "This is what white supremacy looks like!" On a tranquil Sunday afternoon in Denver, hate-mongering zealots hijacked a rally held by citizens and families of fallen police officers, who had gathered to pay tribute to Colorado's honorable men and women in blue. The event organizer, local businessman Ron MacLachlan, followed all the rules and obtained a city permit. Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a proclamation declaring July 19 Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. The idea, MacLachlan explained to local reporters, was to show his teenage children and other young people the myriad positive contributions of...

    The plan for a museum in the city that would focus on climate and climate change, with exhibits that could relate to health, social justice and rain-delayed baseball games, moved a step forward Monday, officials said. The state Board of Regents, meeting in Albany, approved a five-year provisional charter for the museum, Regents spokesman Tom Dunn said. The vote means “there is absolutely going to be a museum,” said Miranda Massie, executive director of the Climate Museum Launch Project. She said the museum is now “empowered to hold collections in trust for the public.” Supporters say it would be the...

    [SNIP]...We are not all equally failing, indifferent, dimwitted, or immoral, nor are we all equally talented, worthy of love and attention, successful, or productive. Not everything is subjective. Not everything is just an opinion. To collectively believe otherwise is suicidal, and this thinking has directly contributed to the decline of our civilization, one in which far too many people are now appallingly ineffectual, apathetic, and unskilled.The notion that all people, no matter what they do or don’t do, accomplish or don’t accomplish, are equal–no better or worse than anyone else–must be fought against.We are fast becoming a nation of lazy,...

    The Supreme Court has just agreed to reconsider the constitutionality of racial preferences in university admissions (although the advocates of these preferences prefer the seemingly more uplifting term “affirmative action.”) It is long past time that the Supreme Court declared this insidious and counterproductive policy unconstitutional for public universities and colleges, and hopefully private institutions will decide that it is incumbent upon them to also stop basing admissions decisions on race, gender or sexual preference. The idea of granting preferences based on race, gender or sexual orientation is so offensive and so un-American that its proponents have had to...

    Andrew Anglin, 30, the publisher of the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer, wouldn’t say where he was. He wouldn’t even say if he was in America. Anglin has gotten a lot of media requests after the Southern Poverty Law Center said Dylann Roof, the man accused of killing nine black parishioners in Charleston, S.C., last week, was possibly a commenter on the Daily Stormer, Anglin said in a Skype audio interview Tuesday. Anglin decided to respond to a Los Angeles Times interview request because -- it’s a small world -- he saw the reporter tweet Monday night about reading “The Forever...
